The Wolverine

The Wolverine
Logan finds himself returning to Japan to say good-bye to Yashida, a soldier that he helped to save in the closing days of World War II, who is now dying. However, Logan gets more than he bargained for when he has a run in with Yashida’s doctor aka Viper, who implants a “bug” in him that begins to destroy his healing ability. It won’t be so easy for Logan to regain the upper hand with someone trying to kill Yashida’s granddaughter and heir, Mariko, and his only other ally is Yukio, who can foresee the deaths of those around her. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Wolverine”.

∙ Near the beginning of the movie, when Logan wakes up from his dream and he’s in the bed next to Jean, the close-up views of him shows that he’s flat on his back. But in the left side view of him and Jean Logan’s right shoulder is elevated.

∙ When Logan has the dream that the samurai is attacking, he wakes up next to Mariko with his claws drawn. Mariko puts her left hand on his right hand, near the point where the claws come out. In the close-up of her talking (over Logan’s left shoulder), Mariko’s left hand moves down the blades. But in the close-up of him, her hand can’t be seen on the blades at all.

∙ After Harada has taken Mariko from the house, Viper walks into Shingen’s office. In the front view of her as she walks in, Viper takes the glove off of her left hand. It cuts to a close-up of Shingen when he says “you” and then back to Viper who takes the glove off of her left hand again when she says “me”.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! Mariko, Logan and Yukio are at the airport. Logan and Mariko are talking while Yukio is in the background next to the stairs to the plane. A man comes over and gives Yukio a black case with three gold straps on it. Mariko asks Logan to stay and when he answers “I can’t princess”, Yukio is seen in the background holding the case under her right arm. It cuts to a right side close-up of Logan and Mariko and then back to the original left side view where Yukio is in the background. She’s still standing in the same position but the case she was holding a moment before is missing.

“The Wolverine” (2013) stars Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hal Yamanouchi, Will Yun Lee, Ken Yamamura and Famke Janssen.
