The ending of "Logan"... works in a bold and poignant way, providing the kind of closure that any story could be proud of.
March 9, 2017
Make no mistake, Logan earns its tears. If Jackman and Stewart are serious about this being their mutual X-Men swan song, they could not have crafted a more heartfelt valedictory.
March 8, 2017
Jackman and Stewart are why Logan works-why the film doesn't feel like a cheap exercise in bloody violence, and its subversion of typical superhero-movie tropes feels organic.

Another expensive throwaway aimed at milking money out of people who still read comic books. Color it stupid.
March 6, 2017
Strips away the spandex, the posse and the chaos, distilling the story down to the essence of the man, Logan. What's left is the agony and the ecstasy of mutanthood.
March 3, 2017
Jackman gives Logan a withering rage that seems heartfelt, not hammy; Stewart is touching in his enraged befuddlement; and Keen, who resembles here what Katie Holmes might look like if she were Carrie, has a feral intensity.

[Director] Mangold drags [Wolverine] - much older, if not much wiser - into a Western, and ends up with the best superhero movie in recent memory.
March 3, 2017
Logan does go defiantly against the grain by favouring melancholic mood and themes of mortality and deterioration over inflated, end-of-the-world stakes or grandiose action pyrotechnics.
March 3, 2017
Jackman is, once more, superb, holding down the whole film: no matter how battered, gnarled and shrubby he looks, you always root for him. A bit of a beast - but our beast.
March 3, 2017
Jackman twists the pain at the centre of the hero's struggle into remarkably uncomfortable places for a blockbuster.
March 3, 2017
Jackman's performance is Clint Eastwood-esque, and the lines in Jackman's face tell the story of his worn character; he plays Wolverine as a man at the end of his line, adding at least a decade to his 48 years.

Finally, 17 years since it all began, we get the payoff.
March 2, 2017
Logan was written by Scott Frank, Mr. Mangold and Michael Green. Their script is the crucial ingredient of this impressive production, a model of ambition, complexity and old-fashioned showmanship that's matched by Mr. Mangold's direction.

The only problem with calling it the boldest and most affecting superhero flick in many years is that it's barely a superhero movie at all.
March 2, 2017
The film celebrates the medium by taking itself seriously, with an added hint of apology for the genre's earlier sins. Best of all, there's an element of risk.
March 2, 2017
Logan is a family drama, an action thriller and an epic superhero story. If this is indeed Jackman's last Wolverine film, he's going out in heartfelt, high-class style.
March 2, 2017
Logan is kind of a special superhero movie, in a good way, and if Jackman holds to his stated intention to make it his Wolverine swan song, he's going out not with a whimper but a bang.
March 2, 2017
On its own terms, Logan is a crackerjack piece of work: The dialogue is crisp, the staging snappy, and the action scenes really pop.
March 2, 2017
Hugh Jackman sharpens his claws in every sense of the word and delivers killer work.

This is the collapse of the sprawling X-Men family that Wolverine only begrudgingly joined in the first place.
