Tossing aside everything that had made it distinctive, the film's final segment retreats to a generic industrial space for weightless computer generated destruction. Such a shame, as this was almost a real movie.
Director James Mangold and credited screenwriters Scott Frank and Mark Bomback develop Logan as a complex individual, rather than just using him as to provide still more hokey backstory and empty action.
The film is at its best when it is most reflective of the source material that inspired it, and it disappoints where it most fails to live up to that source material. ...I regret it didn't achieve more.
Preferring to stay broody and small-time, this minimalist noir, with little dialogue and no world-threatening schemes, intriguingly sustains its culture clash and blurring lines between man, beast and monster.
Slick, entertaining, super-hero thrill ride, the only quibbles are its length - every big film these days seems to be 20 minutes too long - and its 3D conversion. Really, it's another example of the marginal difference that process often makes.
