Logan is the Violent, No-Holds-Barred Wolverine Epic We Deserve
He was joined by his co-stars Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen, as well as director James Mangold.
"It's a movie about a man, a man struggling with his demons and his past and trying the best he can to deal with family, there is a lot of everyday". So, simply put, LOGAN is not only the best #Wolverine film, it's simply the very best X-Men film ever! After all, last year's Deadpool proved being more rude and violent doesn't necessarily mean less box-office takings, so be prepared for heads to roll and be skewered. "The best thing about "Logan" is that it's one of those movies about a grown-up killer who becomes the mentor and protector of a child, yet it manages not to be cloying". He doesn't think he will miss the alter ego who made him an worldwide household name, even after all these years. "Mangold's Logan is a unusual contradiction: It's both the most violent film in the series and the most sentimental one. The actor, who reportedly conceived the basic thrust of the story, takes the ever-conflicted Logan/Wolverine to full-blooded depths, and the result is a far more cohesive and gripping film than his previous collaboration with Mangold, 2013's The Wolverine". "Logan unveils another, surprise bad guy about halfway through, but even this twist underwhelms, leaving our faltering hero without a worthy enemy for this climatic cinematic showdown".
"No X-Men movie will ever be great (the material is too derivative), but Jackman, though he's the Superman of the bunch, has gone deeper into the alienation than any other mutant in the series".
Bottom Line:Logan is a violent, emotional masterpiece and the ideal ending to Hugh Jackman's run as the Wolverine.
"Logan's momentum definitely flags towards the end, but there are some nice touches in the finale as well (including a final shot that is absolutely perfect)".
Jackman gives one of his best performances as a battered and broken old man who's only got one good fight left in him. With the precision of a master assassin on the level of John Wick, Laura slices and dices her way through hundreds of armed men over the course of Logan's 136-minute runtime, and each one is like a snowflake - unique in their own ways and cold as ice. I was hoping I would enjoy it so I could promote is as I have always loved the character since his introduction in 1975. It could really only be done with Jackman signing off and with Mangold being given the authority to really cut loose and present a clear, uncompromised vision.
Not only does the film come with an R-rating, there is also plenty of mystery surrounding exactly what the story is all about, beyond the introduction of the little girl with numerous same characteristics of Logan himself. "Perhaps it's just the novelty, but that explicit violence and salty language (Professor X turns out to be quite the potty-mouth as well) adds a bit of much-needed fizz to the Wolverine sub-franchise". After almost 20 years of waiting, we will finally get a bloody, brutal Wolverine movie that shows the character in his truest form.
