Tonight went to private screening of LOGAN this one favorite”X-Men” films but one my favorite comic book compared to this to Dark Knight it’s that good ask get in comics book in movie general at all them .
The film left me very emotionally tattered and torn up to by the end of this film. I felt absolutely love i like Hugh Jackman playing Logan/wolverine in this film .
A pierced me in the heart with his adamantium claws. I this I know if I’ve ever been this emotionally invested in an “X-Men” or “Wolverine” film before. The film is relentlessly dark and violent, to the point where some may want to look away. The R-rating has really given this film its claws, and it shows. It’s unrepentantly brutal. However, the film is also unabashedly emotional and heart-breaking see him last time playing wolverine .
Director James Mangold, writers Scott Frank, Michael Green and Mangold himself have crafted a story that defies convention, both of the genre and the franchise itself. The narrative is focused on telling its own singular story, not beholden to what has come before The R-rating has also freed .Mangold and company characters such as Logan or Xavier or even Laura, aka X-23, react in such visceral, human and authentic ways. The film has an added layer of authenticity because these characters don’t hold anything back.
The film he doesn’t hold anything back, either. If this is indeed Hugh Jackman’s last time playing Logan, or Patrick Stewart’s last time playing Xavier, everyone went out with a bang. Newcomer Dafne Keen steals every scene she’s in. If you feared the addition of a younger character might veer in pat or sappy territory, just wait until you see her do her thing. The dynamic she has with Logan is also fantastic. Logan has always been a character at his best when he’s helping someone. What drove the original trilogy, and especially the first film, was his dynamic with Anna Paquin’s Rogue. Which is why it is so fitting that Logan passes the torch in a way to Laura in this film, continuing that dynamic. As violent and as dark as the film gets, the film is above all else a story about finding heroism even in the darkest corners. Mangold did an excellent job balancing the violence with a story ultimately about redemption, sacrifice and hope.
I say this review without mentioning Hugh Jackman’s performance, though. What can I say about Hugh’s he playing one favorite comic book Wolverine last seventeen year ask perfect ask is it tough felling up shoes replace. Yes, Jackman may have been too tall or glistening or handsome to be Wolverine, but goddamnit, Hugh Jackman is and forever shall be Wolverine to me. This performance feels like a solidification of that, like a lasting statement. You can tell Jackman put every ounce of sweat, emotion and physicality into his performance here. This might seem hyberbolic, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Jackman garners award consideration for his performance in LOGAN. He’s earned it, not just for the last two decades playing this role, but for his incredibly emotional and impassioned performance in this film. Hugh Jackman IS The Wolverine, and I thank him for nearly two decades of putting everything he could into this role over the years.
I could continue on for hundreds of words about this film, and I may very well do that in another form. For now, though, just know that LOGAN is the perfect send-off for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and one of the best superhero films that’s ever been made. Hugh Jackman helped define the genre in 2000 and in 2017 he helps define it again
