Sacrilege though it may be to fellow comic aficionados, facts are still facts: As a character, Wolverine kind of sucks. Moody and hairy, the murder-happy brute is all pouting and brooding; he's like a stabbier Morrissey.

...[it's] a film which borrows so heavily from other genres and films while giving us another dose of what Wolverine-lovers will appreciate: a growling Hugh Jackman....

Drops the ball with a lackluster third quarter that results in the film to a disappointingly underwhelming sendoff to Hugh Jackman's portrayal of the iconic character.

If indoctrinating child audiences into accepting, and enjoying, brutal deadly violence was the intent of the filmmakers responsible for making "Logan," then their mission is accomplished.

If this is some sort of a farewell, then, sad to say, it's too nasty for me.

Marvel fans that moonlight as undiscerning gorehounds just might find Valhalla in "Logan," but the project goes out of its way to give everyone else the cold, dead shoulder.

The women do not suffer their deaths with any less violence. Three important men, named, with histories and layers, die too. The movie pauses and allows each of their passings a solemn grace, as dictated by its audience, single-minded and insatiable.

Another expensive throwaway aimed at milking money out of people who still read comic books. Color it stupid.
March 6, 2017
A story with little action that lacks the epic brilliance of the character. Finally the worst happens: the film becomes long and boring. [Full review in Spanish]

The super-violent Logan is just slashed brisket.

After the 140-minute running time I felt as exhausted as Wolverine.
March 4, 2017
The morose nihilism and all-around joylessness come to stink of adolescent posturing. This "comic book movie for adults" feels like one of the genre's most juvenile entries.
March 4, 2017
It's Stan Lee by way of Cormac McCarthy, but the end result -- basically, No Country for Old X-Men -- suffers from its own sense of self-importance.
March 3, 2017
Whenever the filmmakers have a choice between cruelly slaughtering characters and letting them live, they almost always choose the cruel path.
March 3, 2017
[Logan is] really just another exercise in violence featuring Logan's adamantium claws - a trait shared with teenage Laura (Dafne Keen) in overblown action scenes that recall the sickeningly sadistic kiddie assassin movie Kick-Ass.
March 2, 2017
Slow and depressing, and not in a good way.
March 2, 2017
Unlike any other comic book movie made so far, but for all that ambition and gratuitous violence, Logan is a taxing and overindulgent experience.
March 2, 2017
The gloomiest and grisliest of the X-Men franchise is expertly crafted in detail but overlong, dreary and dispiriting as a whole.
March 1, 2017
Logan is not really asking us to consider the plight of vulnerable children, it's encouraging us to get off on it.
March 1, 2017
Logan is deadly serious, and while its gamer-style killing sprees are meant to be excitingly brutal, I found them numbing and, in the climax, borderline offensive.
