This low-key, sometimes melancholy comedy is a road movie with a twist. While this couple does have a series of misadventures, there's never a moment when they lose each other.

In a time when even bad comic book films like The Spirit have a certain 'are you kidding me?' nerve, Wolverine is shocking in its adherence to formula and lack of imagination.

The film weaves old footage of Tyson with interviews with the contemporary version, showing the discrepancy between the menacing block of granite he once was and the tired, doughy man he has become.
