I have seen The Wolverine!

Okay. So how was the movie?
Quite frankly, I was a little disappointed  Hugh Jackman is great and the movie is not short on effects or violence or straight up combat but still, I felt a little disappointed.

<Spoiler warnings!!!>
First of all, the Japanese plot. I don't have anything against the Japanese but the plot seemed somehow unimportant. It was no doubt important to Logan, Mariko and all the rest of the characters participating in the plot but for the rest of humanity it all seemed rather irrelevant. The average person on the street wouldn't care one bit if Wolverine died, or transferred his healing factor, or if Yashida got to live forever. It just seemed - unimportant. Nothing that would affect humanity as a whole.

Now, Wolverine manages to have his claws sheared off in the movie, but a power armor suit wielding a heated Adamantium sword. I am pretty sure the comics would not have allowed Adamantium claws to be sheared off. There was also this thing about Wolverine being subdued by tranquilizer darts, which is also something that his rapid healing factor should have negated. And last but not least, Wolverine just stormed the enemy's castle coming in from the main road, on a motorcycle. So where was stealth and common sense?
