The beginning of the film including the mall scene almost played like a campy tribute to the beginning of Superman III. The writing was atrocious and the storyline overall was boring. Almost felt like DC's attempt at a Days of Future Past period film and fell flat on its face. The Cheetah CGI was almost as good as the Superman non-mustache. Action sequences in the back half of the film saved this from a lower score. If you liked Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, and the smell of fresh dog poop, this movie is for you....
This film was very loyal to the source material. The visuals were amazing and I wouldn't be surprised if the effects and make up were nominated for some awards. The acting was decent. Scarlett Johnasson's performance was pretty mediocre. The movie and story really lacked any larger consequences and it really didn't suck me in at all. The movie (just as my score would indicate) was about as mediocre as you can get.
I don't give out 5 star ratings very often but when I do, it is for a reason. As far as comic book movies are concerned, I would put this film right up there with The Dark Knight as the two best comic book movies of all time. While the Marvel movies are excellent in their own right, they are amazing for flashy comic book movies. The Dark Knight (and now Logan) are not only great comic book movies but they are also just great films. Logan comes off as a violent family western road trip action chase film. That may seem like a lot, but that's what it is. The action is great, the acting from Jackman & Stewart is superb. Dafne Keen steals nearly every scene that she is in. The script is also packed full with emotion and effective plot beats.
Just as I would say with The Dark Knight, you don't have to be a comic book fan to enjoy Logan. I would recommend it to everyone.
