Yes, so what if you have not watched the X-Men movies before? Neither have I. I went skeptical to the cinema hall, and by the end of it I was not disappointed. It is unfair to compare every superhero movie to the arresting 2008 Batman movie The Dark Knight, and Wolverine does have its moments.
The rift between the two brothers - Wolverine and Victor makes for some engaging fight scenes. Hugh Jackman is good in his reprisal of the title role and Liev Schreiber is a likeable bad guy. Danny Huston as William Stryker is not so menacing though, but hey, if you are looking for the usual superhero stuff and a little more, Wolverine is a good watch.
