The fury...the beauty...the battle! An apocalyptic scene of burning Tokyo streets is the meeting place for this blood war. Wolverine questions the judgement and perhaps lost goals of Shi that have placed her in a situation most desperate. Questions that inflame an already internal wound of the soul that Shi is fighting within herself. The overused term, "battle to the death," has become tired and worn out. The battle that that Tucci and Smith inject Wolverine and Shi into deals with more than the bloodshed of a physical plane. It delves into the souls of these two warriors of legend as they battle for more than just life. They battle for the right to die on their own terms. This prequel of the new "Judgement Night" series sets the stage for only one to walk away. And only one will.
