When I first saw the trailer, I never knew that this movie will be about X-Men. “Logan”, I was wondering all along who is Logan. The Logan trailer had me confused and I thought the little girl was named Logan. I had to watch the trailer several times in order to understand what was the movie about. Never knew Logan is the name of Wolverine. At first, I thought this movie will less likely do well. However, after seeing different Logan trailers, I felt like this film will do really well in the ratings and audience will really like it. I was definitely looking forward to watch this film.
This is one of the bloodiest Wolverine films. There are action sequences in the film, but they are not the main focus of the movie. Logan is a serious film, a film that focuses on its story and its characters. It’s a serious film without relying heavily on the visual effects and action sequences. We get to see Professor X and what he has been doing, and the little girl, Laura, who’s genetic clone of the Wolverine. All of the scenes Laura were amazing. I would like to see more of Laura’s ability. Maybe in the future, star her own film?
Hugh Jackman as Logan performance was amazing. I saw his behind the scene voice over. Wow, he put a lot of work into his “Logan” character. This is by far Hugh Jackman’s best performance as Wolverine. We’ve never seen Wolverine this vulnerable. He’s old, broken, alcoholic and maybe suicidal. Something you rarely see from a superhero film explicitly.
Logan is by far the most violent X-Men film. Wolverine slashes heads with bloods gushing everywhere on his white tank top. Looks like he just took a blood bath. If you had always wanted to see that side of Wolverine, well this film got that. It’s cool to see 2 hours and 21 minutes of slashes and blood gushing, but that’s not the main point of the film. The story-telling is the main aspect, violence is second.
Never expected Logan to get me downright emotional. The final scene of the film makes me want to cry. You want to see more of the characters and not see them be in pain. The final act of the film nearly moved me in tears and it is where everything comes together. The empty feeling from the final appearance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and see him retire is the part where it moved me most.
In conclusion, this is by far the best Wolverine movie and possibly the best X-Men movie to date. The reason it will be a good film is because no one can replace Hugh Jackman as a Wolverine. Okay, hope you guys love the film. Movie tickets are available for a limited of time only on Fandango through this link.
