Boyfriend gave it 5 stars easily. He's much more excited about gore than I am.
HUGH JACKMAN LUEGO DE 17 AÑOS SE DESPIDE POR LA PUERTA GRANDE DEL PERSONAJE QUE LO HIZO FAMOSO Y QUE TODOS QUEREMOS DEJANDO UNA HUELLA IMBORRABLE EN LA HISTORIA DEL CINE Y LA CIENCIA-FICCIÓN, ESTA ES SIN DUDA UNA DE SUS MEJORES ACTUACIONES JUNTO A UNA EXCELENTE PELÍCULA CARGADA DE DRAMA, ACCIÓN Y VIOLENCIA CRUDA COMO SOLO EL PERSONAJE DE WOLVERINE SE MERECÍA. PATRICK STEWART TAMBIÉN SE DESTACA CON SU EXPERIENCIA ACTORAL EN SU YA CONOCIDO PERSONAJE DEL PROFESOR X Y EL DEBUT DE DAFNE KEEN COMO X-23 ES MARAVILLOSO. REALMENTE EL DIRECTOR JAMES MANGOLD SE LUCIO CON ESTA PRODUCCIÓN PORQUE ES ALGO QUE NO SE OLVIDARA FÁCILMENTE AL SALIR DE LAS SALAS DE CINE.
SOLO QUEDA DECIR GRACIAS HUGH JACKMAN PORQUE TU WOLVERINE SERA DIFÍCIL DE OLVIDAR!! Y NO SERA FÁCIL ENCONTRAR TU REEMPLAZO.
What the movie lacks in variety of Mutants it certainly doesn't in quality. The characters are incredibly well performed and loyal in a Hollywood's degree level of from-comics-to-big-screens' adaptation. Hugh Jackmann sweats out giving his best as his last time playing Wolverine, leaving us with a very organic emotional perspective of the character, which is pretty good.
The screenwriting and plot are great and the performances are beautiful alongside the cinematography. I think the only mistake of the movie was not clearly explaining what actually happened to the Mutants in this future.
Of course it is implied that either the Government or private companies like the one who hires the "Reavers" 'kind of' exterminated them, but you can't just hope fans to accept that powerful mutants like Cyclops, Jean Grey, Magneto were simply hunt down to a point of almost-extinction.
Nonethless.. Logan is a must-see to any X-Men or Wolverine fans.
The first main problem, the smallest one, was the inclusion of Caliban. This character proved to be pointless, only being used in order to have certain things happen within the film, and to be used as a sacrifice which gave no emotion, only a sigh of relief that the main characters could get out alive. A poor waste of a good character, and a good actor. This is extremely lazy scriptwriting from the writers.
Zander Rice was a character that could have worked in many other films but fell flat in 'Logan.' Many films follow a lead villain who is sick and twisted but leaves others to fight for him, but still stay relentless and intimidating when met with confrontation, but sadly, all he gave was some evil ideas and cowering whenever trouble came his way.
Lastly, in terms of villains, there is X-24, who is built up to high heavens, but then, when he is finally met is defeated both times in 2 scenes, within 5 minutes.
The deaths of both Wolverine and Professor Xavier were also extremely disappointing, with Xavier's death coming off completely as shock value, leaving the emotion to come after a fight scene between X-24 and Wolverine, and only being given a minute or less. And Wolverine, all in all, was killed from a Tree. The emotion of Wolverine's death only coming in the last shot. For 2 characters - the film specific versions - that have been loved, and constantly building in character, for 17 years, these deaths were not given the time, or emotion, that they deserved.
Perhaps a 3/5 is harsh, but considering the hype that this film got, and still has, these flaws really should not be in the film.
