    Very systematically written. A lot of useful info and quality observations on the given topic. It looks like you haven’t went there just to see the movie (by that I mean Hugh Jackman), but you went there searching for reasons not to like it, and found none. This is a very quality critique. Love this post.

  2. Great site. Thank you for your time in helping me understand about this.

  3. Saw the film earlier this week and really enjoyed it. My one gripe is, similar to what’s prevented me from enjoying a few films in the Spider-Man franchise, the lack of an intriguing villain. It was less of an issue here since, as those familiar with the Wolverine character know, Logan can often be he own worst enemy, and Jackman’s excellent in this film at portraying Logan’s self-destructive behavior. Still, with such a wide range of intriguing Marvel villains in to choose from, it’s disappointing that a lot of these villains never see the silver screen. But, I’m not familiar with the “Old Man Logan” storyline, so perhaps Mangold was just staying true to the source material in not casting a notable villain from the X-Men universe.

      I thought about that idea too. The actor who played Pierce certainly had a nice swagger about him, but I feel like if they would’ve spent more time developing the villain it would have detracted from the beautiful character moments of our heroes, especially between X-23 and Logan. Who knows, maybe if we would’ve spent more time with the villain then that last scene with those two may have been less impactful

      • All great points. That’s another that makes this different from a lot of other super hero movies: it didn’t matter who the antagonist was since the film did a great job exploring the relationships between the protagonists, as well as Logan’s and Xavier’s internal struggles.

        Couldn’t agree more. It was an indie drama trapped in a comic book film!

  4. Greetings! Very helpful advice in this particular post! It
    is the little changes that produce the most important changes.

    Good review. Logan was such a good movie and definitely was a great conclusion to Jackman’s on-screen presence to Wolverine.

    Great start to the year for the superhero genre. I’m hoping that GotG 2 and Wonder Woman will keep up the streak!

    It is a strong film. A good move to reduce the stakes because of just how deep it allowed the film to go into the principle characters. Jackman and Stewart really rose to the material
