Comic book movies grew up.
Logan was visceral, hard-hitting, deep, and viciously complex.
Go see it. Seriously.
Cant wait for Sunday: going to see "Logan" AND going to the Tallahassee Museum of Natural History (local zoo/living history exhibit)
Agreed. I really enjoyed it as a brutal look at the world of superheroes and what could happen.
It was good. I felt like the movie ended without some sort of payoff, though. It's hard for me to explain.
It was a good movie, ended pretty much how I expected it to end.
Apparently there is a whole storyline that the movies (previous) never touch on about his poison, and they only vaguely mention it during this movie.
Either way, it is an enjoyable movie. Brutal, and good.
What drives me nuts is how bad most of the other X-Men movies are. They don't deserve this film as the next in the series.
It is the "Unforgiven" of the super hero genre. Of the films in this genre that take themselves a bit more seriously, I think Logan is even better than The Dark Knight. That whole argument about humanity, nature vs. nurture, what parts make you, you... It aims to have that level of depth and for me it succeeded. The violence was necessary, it shows the brutality and consequence, what he has to live with. Too many comic characters, I'd not be alright with this treatment, but for Logan, it's perfect.
Not really a spoiler, but maybe sort of... so up to you if you want to read.....
In the comic "Old Man Logan" all the X-Men are dead because Red Skull get's a bright idea and says, let's switch up our enemies, they will never see it coming and we will all take over, and Mystereo gives up his vendetta against Spider Man for a bit to trick Logan into murdering all of the X-Men...
In the film, they gloss over what may have happened, how it may have all come about, but it looks like Prof. X may have literally lost his mind leading to some horrible consequence and Logan spends his later years trying to forget, and trying to protect him from that horrible memory. It's brilliant how they don't completely give it to you, it respects the audience, you have to cobble together what that relationship is, how a parent in their later years depends on their kids, the roles are reversed and the child becomes the caregiver... It is so cleverly put together, how they craft the world for the film. I loved it. Logan is a special film in a genre that has become far too crowded.
