This is the Unforgiven of superhero movies, a brutal yet tender portrayal of former heroes growing old. Logan is tired and world weary, waiting for death to take away his pain. Charles is 90, riddled with drugs to mute his mind, his "super weapon." Despite their friendship their relationship is fractured. Into their lives comes a new mutant and a road trip begins.
I don't want to say much more, having given away a little of the premise already explored in the films trailers. This is a tough, violent and sad film with few moments of humour. There is action but not of the blockbuster kind, one key car chase is like something from a 70's thriller.
This is the swan song of Logan and Charles, both actors giving it their all in their final performances as these characters. To bring them back after this film would undermine their work and the story here.
The film is brilliant and I can't recommend it enough - don't expect a traditional X-Men movie and you will be blown away. If the film itself were a mutant I would say its genes had been spliced with Mad Max and Shane, with a little bit of Children of the Corn (and I mean that in a good way). Excelsior!
It's nothing like the other movies in the series. Very mature, dark and brutal but also authentic in it's own way. The best movie in the X-men universe.
Holy SHIT was this amazing. And it's a real R. I wanted to clap every 15 minutes. Spectacular.
Logan dying is one thing, but can we please talk about Sony still having shit batteries in 2029?
Good performances by Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman and Dafne Keen. Lots of blood and gore (as there should be wherever Wolverine is involved). But.....the pacing was slow and the villains were lame which made the movie kinda boring.....
One of the best comic book movies of all time. This movie transcends the superhero genre. Brutally realistic and violent and at the same time gut-wreckingly emotional. Hugh Jackman delivers a perfect send off. Loved it.
I was expecting this to be really good, but damn.... "Logan" is great. I'm not sure if it's the heat of the moment but (for me) "Logan" is one of the best superhero movies of all time, right next to "The Dark Knight".
"Logan" goes beyond the typical superhero movie where the good guys need to stop the bad ones from 'destroying the world'. "Logan" does what comic book movies should be doing right now. This is an independent movie where occasionally appear claws. The screenplay is beautiful, the performances are perfect and the action sequences were incredible.
I have not felt so much emotion watching a movie for a long time. Happiness, sadness, proud.... I cried 3 or 4 times and shead a tear in many moments. This film moved me in a very strong way.
Were 17 years of Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in these roles and "Logan" was the best farewell to these characters played by them. Right from the first scene we see that this is the Wolverine we always wanted.
"Logan" explores very well this Wolverine. Hugh Jackman's performance allowed us to felt every single one of Wolverine's emotions throughout the all movie. Patrick Stewart was spetacular and I won't be surprised that in end of 2017 his performance was one of the best in the year. Dafne Keen was a good surprise, wasn't expecting her to be so good. The supporting cast was also perfect.
In the end of the film I knew there would be no post-credit scene. However, I decided to stay until the end to honor this beautiful movie. Thank you James Mangold, thank you Patrick Stewart and thank you very much, Hugh Jackman. You were the best Logan we could ask for.
I swear they show logan waking up at least 18 times in the movie. Oh look, Logan is waking up again! Oh, he's back to sleep. He's waking up!!! He's back to sleep. Now he's awake for real!! Never mind, he's back to sleep. Seriously, I almost fell asleep.
I am not a huge fan of superhero movies anymore, got rather tired of it since Hollywood just see this as a cash cow in my book.But this was refreshingly different, don't expect a blockbuster like all the others, this one is special.It is sad, dark, violent, more like a drama with great action scenes. Loved the girl, great performance.Leave your expectations for another crappy X-men movie at home and you will enjoy this one very much.On the other hand I hope they are finished with this franchise, it is just time to let it go instead coming up with another weak idea to milk the cow anymore. Maybe Logan will be resurrected from some stupid DNA samples or his daughter and all the other kids will rise up for a another installment %)
Pros:- The performances of the three leads are great.- Excellent writing for the three main characters, including an intriguing set-up and pay-off for each of them.- The funny moments between Logan and Charles.- Flawless first act.- Different tone compared to the other films in this franchise, that will remind a lot of us of Hell or Highwater .- Gory and intense action scenes (loved the car chase in the first act in particular).
Cons:- 2 major moments that felt forced and out of place (Spoiler: talking about X-23 who, out of nowhere, starts talking, and the unexplained introduction of X-24 )- The villains become forgettable and uninteresting, especially after not appearing for a big portion of the second and third acts.- Some minor pacing issues in the second and the beginning of the third act.
I believe that I am about to disagree with quite a few people now. You see, I did not like this movie.
Not that this came as much of a surprise to me. What I got was pretty much what I expected. From a technical point of view the movie is quite well done. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart are doing good jobs as always. The action scenes are good. The cinematography is not at all bad. If you are into tragic drama and do not mind the super hero twist of the movie then this is a movie for you. The technical qualities is why this movie gets any stars at all from me. If I would judge it by story only then it would have gotten zero, null, nada, nicths, rien, ingenting.
For me it was depressing, boring and not at all fun to watch. The only reason I watched it is because I, as a X-Men fan, simply had to watch it as well as having it in my collection but I would have been happier it this movie had never been made.
Wolverine is more or less an unpleasant drinking bum clad in filthy ragged clothes. Professor X is half insane and apparently dangerous to himself and the people around him. We get absolutely no explanation as to how this sad state of affairs.
The entire movie is dark in spirit with the X-Men all but died out and Wolverine and Professor X just waiting to die. Then in comes this female child who later turns out to be a female version of Wolverine. She pretty much lacks any form of charisma and she and Wolverine spends almost the entire time in a state of conflict, much due to Wolverine who seems to think everyone should go fuck themselves so that he can continue to self destruct.
The bad guys are the usual evil corporation doing experiments on X-Men, genetics etc. Supposedly they were behind the almost extermination of X-Men but of course they keep their own little army of “enhanced” humans that doggedly harasses Wolverine & Co. There are some nice action sequences but there is really no good overall boss. No one with enough Charisma to take the role of the main adversary unless you count X-24 who only took part in a few parts of the movie.
By the way, why the fuck do Wolverine, Laura as well as X-24 have to grunt like horny monkeys when they fight?
The story is rather predictable with no major surprises, little depth and low on logic. A typical Hollywood drama. Not really anything to write home about.
The movie is just so depressing from start to finish. As a last farewell to Wolverine and Professor X it is almost insulting. I know a lot of people seem to like it but I cannot understand why. At least not if you are a X-Men fan.
Brutal!! Amazing!! Fantastic!!An incredible movie. An incredible hero.
Good movie! There won't be another Wolverine like #HughJackman.
i've never felt like this before, there wasn't a superhero movie like this one. i don't know how to carry on right now, how to see the superhero world. we all knew this day was coming since we first saw Hugh Jackman in the role. western vibe, rollercoaster movie, emotional, heartbreaking, bittersweet, the ending will tear your heart out!. RDJ, Chris Evans, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman! these are actors who are irreplaceable. now the question that's going through everyone's mind is Who's Next?! and honestly NO ONE. #ThankYouHughJackman #Logan #Wolverine.
Logan, you still have time
Logan, you still have time
I had never watched an X-Men movie before this one. Odd, I know, especially given that I watch everything else superhero related, guess I never started with X-Men (always wanted to, though).
Perhaps it was weird to start with this one. But, my feelings leaving the theater? This is not only one of the best superhero movies I have watched, it is actually one of the best movies I have watched, period. I loved it.
Well, there goes my heart. Wolverine has been my favorite X-man from the beginning, and his story throughout all the movies was very interesting. This movie, however, shows a completely different side of him, side I couldn't imagine him having. Action packed, dramatic, heartbreaking... Logan is amazing. Kudos to everyone that took part in making this.
This is the dark realism that this franchise has been waiting for. Too bad it's the final film for the best character. The only negative thoughts that I had about the movie was the overabundance of spanish dialogue. If you want some of the dialogue to remain a mystery, you can't use a language that half your audience speaks, and the other half doesn't. And if it's not a mystery, use subtitles. It was just annoying. Other than that, it was a really engaging movie. The action scenes were directed amazingly (maybe I just have low standards after the god awful directing of all the marvel movies), and the one thing that was always missing was finally added: blood. That may sound juvenile, but think about how stupid it is to show a man slice through another man's body without so much as a drop of blood coming out. It was what made any scene with wolverine inherently corny in all his other movies. It just looked stupid, like violence for kids. This was a movie for people who don't like being taken out of movies. No cheesy jokes, no stupidity. This was an easy one to get through.
And Stephen Merchant!

7.5 out of 10
This was the "Unforgiven" of the Super hero genre. It displayed the best of the genre while grounding it in emotion and reality, taking the sparkle out of its glorification and giving us an excellent movie.
You'll find this is a lot different to your normal marvel film, you'll find It's a lot more serious, darker, and has a funny side to it with the bond they shared between them all what also was heartwarming. By far the best action packed Xmen based movie. All the cast were supreme, the effects were on top, and the story plot was super!
The Wolverine movie we have all been waiting for all these years, doing justice to the X Men. An unexpected finale to 17 years of the X Men. The performances by Sir Patrick Stewart & Hugh Jackman was just brilliant. Bringing to life the story of Logan and what could have happened to the Mutants.
Not your typical Mutant movie from Marvel, but more real more of what we wanted. It is R Rated for a reason and I hope they keep this level of story telling and action for all the Marvel Movies. A fitting end and a movie that should not be missed.
I tried so hard not to cry at the end, but couldn't hold myself. Saying goodbye to someone you just started to appreciate hurts a lot. Overall it was a great movie, full of emotion and raw action.
[9.2/10] The Wolverine, the predecessor to Logan, focused on the notion of immortality as both a blessing and a curse, showing its protagonist contemplating the release of death as a release from the trauma of the horrors he’d witnessed and participated in. It presented a man on torn by that internal conflict, trying to decide what’s worth living for.
Logan both deepens and doubles down that internal conflict. The man we meet in the film, set in the not too distant future of 2029, has no more dilemmas about life versus death. He wants to die, seeming only to stick around to fulfill his responsibilities to Charles Xavier, the last living man to show kindness to him and see the best in him. He is a man ready to detach from the world, who believes that connections and belonging to others only leads to more pain and puts the people he cares about at risk.
Some number of Decades after the events of the prior X-men films (as Deadpool noted, the timeline’s pretty confusing), the dream of Professor X -- of his gifted students as a beacon of light unto the world -- has curdled into a sad reality, where mutants are going extinct and the idea that they could join together and benefit humanity has turned into a select few scrappers and survivors eking out an existence until the clock runs out.
In that, Logan’s closest analogue is less other films in the superhero genre, or even Westerns like Shane that the movie pays homage to, but Children of Men. It shares the same struggle against bleakness, the same worn out world its character inhabit, the same sense that hope for what comes next has dwindled down to nothing. And it shares the premise of one hollowed out man struggling to ferry the possible last hope for his kind, the first new life in a generation, to a sanctuary he may not even believe in.
It’s also a generational story, one that positions Wolverine between Xavier as his surrogate father, battling with a degenerative brain condition and still urging him to embrace the values of altruism and human connection despite the dire straights of their circumstances, and Laura, the equivalent of a daughter who shares Logan’s brusqueness and directness, not to mention his abilities and anger, but who also represents the idea that the next generation (no pun intended, Patrick Stewart) might do better, avoid the mistakes that still haunt Logan and keep him holding onto an adamantium bullet to wipe it all away.
With these weighty themes, Logan earns its R-rating regardless of how much blood is shed in its runtime. Nevertheless, it meets its quota of severed limbs and grisly scenes required of a picture freed from the constraints of tentpole PG-13 ratings. And yet, the gore rarely feels gratuitous. Instead, director James Mangold (who also directed The Wolverine) allows the audience to feel the brutality of Logan’s slashing and gutting. Instead of the weightless thrillride of most blockbuster action, there’s a visceral quality to Wolverine’s claws separating flesh from bone -- using the expanded palette of the R-rating to convey the horrors that Wolverine is and has been a party to, the vicious realities he’s ready to escape and grown so weary of.
That same sense of a worn down world emerges in the superlative cinematography and production design of the film. The opening portion of the film, set in the southwest, depicts a weathered wasteland amid technological advancements, with a blistering sun beating down on rusted spindles. The middle section gives way to night in the heartland, with darkened hues dancing around bits of light. And the final act of the film is full of naturalistic beauty, full of sumptuously shot forests and verdant landscape. The transition in settings as Wolverine and his coterie make their way to their destination, from barren land to a blooming wilderness helps symbolize Wolverine’s own internal journey from hopelessness to a belief that the chance for renewal is there.
It helps that Mangold brings outstanding performances out of all three of his leads. Stewart is mesmerizing, finding different notes to play in a man who’s remembering the unspeakable acts he’s responsible for, coping with the loss of his mental capacity and the cage that inevitably places him in, and still encourages a belief in a brighter tomorrow. Dafne Keen shines as young Laura, communicating determination and hints of the fire that once burned in her forebear in a mostly-wordless role.
And Hugh Jackman gives a performance worthy of what he’s claimed will be his last time donning the claws. After seventeen years with this character, Jackman’s Wolverine convincingly carries the weight of all that he’s done and seen, dismissive of the greater mission Xavier once again tries to instill in him, grappling with disappointment, in himself and the potential for something greater he once begrudgingly but earnestly bought into, and allowing himself, bit by bit, to consider the possibility that there are things still worth risking your life for, not just worth ending it.
The third act of the film hits some of these notes a little too hard, and gives into more of the standard superhero flick playbook than the prior, transfixing two-thirds of the film. But even there, as the sober atmosphere of the film gives way to some cheese and action, Logan keeps its themes at the heart of the film, creating an appropriate culmination to nine films’ worth of development of Wolverine that embraces where the character’s been and connects to where he began.
That is the question Logan is most concerned with -- was all of that worth it? While the film takes Wolverine’s past in broad strokes (thankfully largely omitting his misadventures in Origins), it takes those prior stories as fodder for the idea that Wolverine has strived and suffered and now finds himself questioning whether it got him, or the people he loved, or anyone for that matter, to anything approaching a better place, or if it all crumbled into nothing anyway.
Mangold, Jackman, and the rest of the film’s creators take the hardship, the piercing, hollowing out qualities of that sort of contemplation seriously, allowing it to weigh down their protagonist and the world he inhabits. But it’s not a film that wallows. Instead, Logan pulls no punches with what haunts Wolverine, but offers a chance for the lapsed hero to be redeemed, to see his fight and his existence, the path that Xavier set him on so long ago, leading to a chance for their successors to do more and do better. It is meditative and visceral, dispiriting and hopeful, showing a man ready to die, to cast off all that he was and did, rediscovering the promise, the justifying pull, of a worthwhile future, even one he may never see.
Great movie not your usual superhero or X-Men movie Very gritty down to earth has some great themes to it deals a lot with aging adapting to the times death and caring on Legacies through younger Generations which are all very real and powerful things which is part of what makes this movie so great
it's really interesting to see Heroes like this old down on their luck and forgotten
While I very much disliked Wolverine in Japan, Logan is a really good movie. Seems the producers have learnt from past mistakes. It's also not just all fairy tails steering towards happy endings, its actually pretty dark, rough and less predictable... totally worth watching
Such a emotional movie. Wow, so dark and original. My favorite from the X-Men universe, no doubt.
I could have done without this type of ending. This is a bit dark for my tastes.
Best superhero movie so far. It gives you such an realistic feel before it takes on to being coolest moves witg twists.
Good movie but a bit too violent for my taste. Overall the story was okay but a very depressing ending to such an iconic character.
This movie was unfitting for the other wolverine movies. It was a totally different class. It was overly violent, especially the little girl. What in the world? This movie was a poor ending to the otherwise pretty good wolverine movies.
Pretty good. I loved seeing the evolution of the characters, but I think the hype was too much for me. I found myself checking my watch a bunch.
Honestly, Logan is Overrated.I don't and can't even "like" this movie.Why is so many people, or should I say, "almost everyone" screaming about it?And those who compare or say that Logan is better than The Dark Knight should go see a psychiatrist.
"This is what life looks like. People who love each other. A home. You should take a moment... Feel it".
It's very rare that a X-men (or any superhero movie), could be the hardest thing I've ever progress in terms of my thoughts and feelings. Much hard when writing about it. Heck, I wouldn't even call it a superhero movie, but a mixture of both western and drama in disguise. No one is safe and the stakes are higher than before. While the villains themselves aren't anything I would call "great", but they did felt like a real threat and wasn't too cliché to the story.
"Logan" is one of the best non superhero movies I've seen in awhile. A sad but satisfying farewell to are fan favorite. A surprising character driven movie with real consequences. A bold and risky film that wouldn't have been made years ago in the hands of FOX. But I think it's the unexpected powerhouse that got me in many ways. Something the previous movies couldn't do.
Much darker and gruesome than I expected. Remember in "X-men: Apocalypse" when Wolverine goes on a full rampage and violently kills all the guards, but most of it was off-screen, even through you can clearly see blood on the walls. Well take that scene and imagine actually seeing him tearing through people. Yeah, it really goes for it and that ain't a bad thing.
Hugh Jackman has portrayed Wolverine for over seventeen years and this is by far his most powerful performance. It's the humanity and the depression of the character we never truly seen. Despite happening around him, Logan's true enemy is himself. Before the end of an era, he learns the meaning of family and being a hero for others. I know this may sound far-fetch, but I would go as far to say that Jackman deserves some award buzz for this. The raw emotion he brought to his scenes without any sloppy music under neath it, is achievement. Jackman will forever be Wolverine and nothing will top that.
Patrick Stewart delivers his last and most heartfelt performance as Charles Xavier. In this movie, he isn't the same Professor X who know and love. He is 90 year old, suffers from dementia, and has a dirty mouth. But at the same time, he's a father figure to Logan. The scenes between Stewart and Jackman are one of the few highlights of the film.
Dafne Keen was fantastic as Laura/X-23. She captures the characters inner emotions just by her facial expressions that says so much than dialogue. What's more impressive that this is her first major role and already I'm interested of what she dose next.
I have to give major credit to James Mangold for what he brings to this harsh, but beautiful film. I wouldn't say he's an absolute professional when it comes to action scenes and story, but the perfect balance of brutal and bleakness he brought to those scenes was freaking spot on. The Wolverine series have been all over the place in terms of quality and tone. Mangold gave me what I wanted for years and much more.
Overall rating: "Logan" is a special kind of ride that hits you in places you wouldn't expect. I grinned and cried at the right moments. And that last shot was just perfect.
Great movie. I watch all stand-alone Wolverine movies and this one is by far the best.
It's great that they tried this approach. Even though the movie had some flaws in the middle of the movie.
Anyway: Great Performance by Hugh Jackman.
Wow.. Raw, violent yet still beatiful, funny and sad. Strong performances by all (newcomer Dafne is impressive) , this film never misses a beat. Now, please close your browser and go see this if you haven't...
It was funny to see Logan so weak I was impress with the kids new generations.
I see why others here raved and cheered. But to me, this was 80% of the time a Logan that was miserable und pretty much a dick to everybody. Yes, I understand why but this dude needs a couch and someone to talk to. I would not want to see this again.
i can't think of anything right now other that the words HOLY and SHIT
I don't understand why they keep making movies about the least interesting character of X-men. The guy just has blades, nothing really special.
Dafne Keen is fantastic. Can't wait for more movies with her as X-23. This is not just a great X-Men or superhero movie but a great movie. Period. Hugh Jackman delivered an award-worthy perfomance.
Could not have asked for more. It's the perfect Logan movie, it has closure for all the pain he've been through across all those years since X-Men 1. We see a sick, shaky Logan, still a fighter, still a loner, still caring for everyone even thought he does not let it out very often. Also great that we don't see nothing of Jean. I loved every scene of it, the brutality, the violence that always come with wolverine stories now in its full glory(or not). The fights between him and his "young self" were awesome and so simbolic. Patrick Stewart was also brilliant, and I totally agree with him now. It's over for both of them, this just ties it nicely. Felt so bad that Xavier ended up being the doom of all X-Men, I was hoping something more heroic, not a tragedy to explain why everybody was gone. And excited to see a "X-23" movie. Overall, amazing movie, couldn't have asked for more!
More gritty and violent where even Charles Xavier has a foul mouth. Logan is about as serious and dark as Batman vs Superman. Why is it better ? Well because it's bad ass and wasn't an over-stuffed mess. A more fitting ending though would have been if Wolverine became a Xavier like mentor to all the new mutants. The ending could have been better. Otherwise the movie was good.
there was a teaser of wolverine in the x men apocalypse
Jackman and Stewart as great as ever but the Oscar goes to Dafne Keen. I hope we see more of her... and soon!
I really hate this movie.
New to this trying to see how u work it!!!!
how to play movie on it
Cool, realistic and sad. I loved the movie. One of the best.
Great action sequences - with a very moody Hugh Jackman.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO YOU JUST CANT KILL HIM OFF.. WHY WOULD YOU DO SUCH A THING!!????? NO NO NO JUST NO!
Raw and Heartbreaking, Visceral and Nostalgic. These are words that define this exciting and melancholy journey of Hugh Jackman in his final interpretation of Wolverine.
I don't know. I wasn't bored, but it wasn't good.Somehow they made me not give a damn about the mayor deaths.
No further words needed beyond "grab a seat a watch it"...
This is the real Superhero movie!! its not like the others marvel movie.. this is EPIC !! Touching and Dramatic like a normal life. Really recomended!!! if there is a million star to rate, i will rated that!! The Perform Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart is a wonderful!!! this is will be a movie to remember!!
I was expecting much more from a marvel film. After watching it, I saw a review saying how great the performance of the kid was... Ok she seems to be bilingual because of her family situation, but I found she shouts too much and quite hysterical...
The action... so much blood, so much violence, the feels :')
stand alone at it best
a fair conclusion for this character story arc.good the Actors and the picture. average job from the director but still good.nice and clear.
Makes you feel nostalgic for things you don't know or remember. Absolutely loved it. Hugh Jackman is brilliant, as always.
It was good. Logan’s dead seemed meaningful tho, it still doesn’t feel right.
Are you serious? Inexistent plot, poor action! A child of how many years? 14? That fight against the world...sorry but it's not the kind of film that I expected
This was one of my most anticipated movies this year. It was all I had hoped for. This is, as mentioned by others, not your typical superhero blockbuster action movie. It is not an x-men movie as such. Its title is simply "Logan". You have a story here and then you get this bursts of short intense action sequences. It´s a great swan song for the characters of Logan and Charles.
About to enter the world of X-Men: The Next Mutants Yeah.. You know what I'm talking about after you watch this..
Awesome Movie!!! Too bad it's the last one
One of the best X-Men movies, that's for sure. I watched the noir version (black and white) and it was fantastic, visually beautiful and had a great feel to it.
It was amazing, I'm a huge Hugh Jackman fan and I like X-men saga, but this one it's one hell of a ride... Way to brutal for my normal taste, but it works perfectly in this movie. The best, indeed. I'm happy leaving Logan with this movie. Great, great, great movie!
the movie is totally awesome
And then + becomes a X. Can't stop clapping! The best X-Men movie by far!
Excellent. Probably the best of them all
The film that the Wolverine deserves, anything before this shall be omitted from X-Men history
The title is incomplete, it should be "Logan, the Babysitter" or maybe "Logan, the bloody nanny". A movie for those who enjoy with the scene of Hawkeye's family in Avengers 2.
Better than all other x men movies combined!! period
Im sorry to see Logan leave. But if he has to go the writters certainly sent him packing in style. the Death of logan could not happen based on so many things in this story. what was piosioning him? his body regenerates quickly, even if pioson was inside him wouldnt he heal faster than the internal pioson?
Secondly if loganhas to die, what better villian to take his life than Logan himself? overall this was an ok watch. but still bugged about the ending
The movie is served well by the fact it follows a few characters. The viewer gets to develop an interest in seeing what happens to them. It stands in contrast to other movies that are so jam packed with characters that each one barely gets enough screen time for a one or two lines. The movie dedicates a good amount of time to character development, while still having the flashy action blockbuster movie goers expect. Patrick Stewart is superb at portraying his role as an aged man. Charles is proud and wise at what's truly important in life, yet he has to accept that his body is now frail and tired. I think this Charles will resonate strongly with anyone caring for an elderly significant other. But at the same time, he's almost unrecognizable compared to the Charles Xavier character from past movies.
Dafne Keen also stands out. She has the most character development as Laura. Laura's detachment and keeping a distance from people she distrusts seemed realistic and reminiscent of unaccompanied minor refugees in today's world. The bond between her and the elderly Charles is acted out well as it is unspoken. Even Hugh Jackman tries with the script he's got. He didn't nail the clone character, partly due to how it's scripted.
Once again Hollywood can't write a tidy script if their lives depended on it. The bad guys seem able to monitor what the clone sees, yet they haven't put something in his body to shut him down/control his movements? If the clone doesn't follow orders precisely, then he's as 'defective' as the mutant children. And why doesn't he have an earpiece or implant to communicate with his handlers?
The video Gabriela leaves behind works to explain the backstory to the movie, except for why the comic book has the meeting coordinates. The comic book makers know about the mutant children or use it as a meeting point anyway? If so, then shouldn't someone be there to guard the meeting point and receive newcomers? It would've been fine if the coordinates were handwritten in the comic book as they were on the back of Laura's group picture. Or leave the comic book out of it. Laura's group picture would have been enough, as that's what the bad guy found. Logan would see the picture, know the coordinates point to the middle of nowhere, and treat it with the same doubt and disdain as he does when he sees the comic book.
On the other hand, Charles' powers were still strong enough to paralyze a building full of people, and to communicate with Laura; Plus Laura knows how to sense and engage multiple enemies, but neither sensed Logan's clone killing people as he comes! Given his powers and intelligence, Charles' death was pathetic and anti-climactic. Laura's speech at the grave site injects some much needed emotion and recaptures the viewer. But there was no saving the next death.
Logan's death destroys what's left of the viewers' suspended disbelief. We have seen Logan manage to heal from all sorts of injuries. Even his illness isn't completely stopping his ability to heal, and he should be an expert at surviving fights. What the hell was wrong with him anyway? I thought Laura would somehow be the key to cure his illness.
The shot he took healed all his previous injuries, Thus, he shouldn't be so weak after it wears off. With a body full of adamantium, it shouldn't be so easy to kill him simply by impaling him to a tree. Couldn't the enemy shoot adamantium bullets or some weapon that could give him a mortal wound? Unless that was an adamantium tree, nothing adds up. His death was so unbelievable that after he was buried I expected to see the movie end with his claws sticking out of the ground.Instead, the movie just sort of ends blandly.
Oh Logan :( my all time favourite superhero
why are you reading more comments watch this film now or you will regret it best wolverine film to date, was the right decision to make it more gory hes a character with retractable blades its a no brainer that he would make a mess of anyone having a fight with him.
I may have been a bit harsh on this the first time around. Sure some of the gore and swearing feels a bit forced and pandering and the end seems a bit anticlimactic, given this characters legacy. But as western styled farewell for Jackman it actually works fairly well. The character is filled with pain and regret. He's a broken man, who's lost everything and is barely able to keep going on. It's a sad end to a tragic mans journey. The gimmicky "Noir" version adds nothing to it though...
Its not my favorite X-Men film but Logan is a very special movie. Its a great send off to both Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. Its emotional and dramatic first but when the action is in full swing its hard to beat. Dafne Keen is incredible and will likely be one of the best child performances of the year. Logan thrives because it remains so disconnected for the rest of the X-Men movies. I really hope that Fox can continue to bring the originality with their superhero projects.
7.5 - podoba mi się to jak film od początku do końca opowiada tylko o Loganie i nie opowiada na siłę wątków pobocznych.
Loved it. It was such an action packed emotional ride. It showed a different side to our heros.
Out with the old, eh?
Wow!! Such an amazing movie for the X-men franchise. Beautiful story and superb acting. Still in shock at the ending. Cried a few times during this. Damn....so good but can't believe we won't see anymore Logan. :-(
Heartbreaking film. Lost for words.
This isn't your typical big blockbuster X-MEN film. Unlike literally every superhero movie released, "Logan" is not a plot driven by someones superpowers and
God damn that wasssssssss ..........GOOD!!!
Sincere, heartwarming and satisfyingly violent.
this is a great moviepeace out....
This is the first and only Marvel I loved in 10 years (and didn't hate).It's mature, believable with actual characters and development. It actually spoke to my age and not to 13 year olds, with the father-son-kid relationship of Logan and Charles.It had its real life humor and not Chuck Lorre sitcom lame jokes.The action scenes were nice and didn't take all the focus, even with the usual "villain-boss" here.
Great performances by Jackman and Stewart, and the girl. Even dramatic I would say.
I highly recommend if you like the universe but especially if you're fed up with the usual predicable pattern, like me.
Truly fantastic acting by all. Did the film a LOT of justice to be rated R.
This movie is insanely good - but bring tissues, you're in for a roller coaster of emotion.
Yes this is a very dark portrait of wolverine, the kid was of course amazing but i wanted to like it even more as a movie.
This is, perhaps, the best X-Men film. It's only ever brought down by its humdrum antagonists.
absolutely brutal, i found myself going full fetal position in the cinema chair 11/10 would recommend
Much better than the others, which was easy, I liked the tone and what count, even if it is not the same as the old logan
A começar do título, Logan é um acerto atrás do outro. Não é, simplesmente, um filme do mutante Wolverine. É do Logan, ou James. Dos seus acertos, enganos. Da junção de tudo que o carcaju já viveu. Como amante de filmes de ação que tem porrada - e boa história (não é tão comum ter os dois atualmente), me sinto tranquilo em dizer que Logan é um desses que saí do cinema feliz de ter assistido. Desde o início, vemos um cara mudado. Não dá para saber totalmente o pq, mas aos poucos quase tudo se explica de uma maneira inteligente. A primeira cena é mto boa. Ação gore da melhor qualidade, com boas coreografias de luta. Não espere aqui ver um filme que amenizará nos cortes ou decepações. Tudo é cru e para mim, nada exagerado. Gosto disso. Não é estilizado, como em um Tarantino. Mas, cru, como The Raid. Hugh Jackman já tinha me impressionado como ator quando o vi em Les miserables, onde canta, dança, chora, ri. Faz tudo mto bem. Sabia que ele tem potencial e o diretor, James mangold, o utiliza mto bem. Mas, a menção honrosa vai para Dafne Keen que mesmo sem falas reagi mto bem a tudo. Quando ela resolve abrir a boca para não só gritar, consegue fazer muito bem. Não vou nem falar de Patrick Stewart que me fez querer chorar e ainda mostra que um mutante de 90 anos tem muito para fazer. O enredo é interessante. Não quer mostrar um cara procurando redenção, Logan ou Wolverine não parece ser desse tipo de gente. Mostra alguém autodestrutivo, mas que lá no fundo até quer viver mais só que não vê mais sentido por aqui. O arco é bom. Os personagens tbm! Saí do cinema.querendo mais disso que me foi apresentado. Espero que haja mais filmes de heróis como esse - assim como foi com deadpool, Batman do Nolan e watchmen. Uma última afirmação: que bom ver um filme dos X men com história boa, efeitos interessantes, bons arcos e uma história sem medo de matar as pessoas certas no momento certo. A frase final que Laura diz traduz a vida de Wolverine tranquilamente. Boa metáfora!
Wow, this movie is one of the best superhero movies, it is the perfect conclusion of wolverine, the final escene was perfect.
All I am getting is the trailer any ideas please
Even if the movie ended after the first scene it id still the best X-Men movie ever!
It would be nice if t5his site worked, all these movies to watch and not 1 is working. Whats up with this ?
This by far has been the most pleasant movie i have had the chance of watching. A mature, dark & unforgiving movie with a story that has incredibly weaved and unweaved itself. The portrayal of Logan and Xavier is at it's best in this.
