Just so everyone knows I am not a fan of R-rated movies. The only R- rated movies that I would see are comedies such as Deadpool, Sausage Party, and Ted. That said I actually really enjoyed Logan. Logan is Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart’s last film in the X-men film series. This is probably the most dramatic movie in the X-men series. It’s up there with The Dark Knight or Watchmen in terms of seriousness.
The acting in this movie is really impressive. Hugh Jackman plays Logan as this old washup version of himself and Patrick Stewart plays a more crazy Xavier. It’s really heartbreaking to see a wise and intelligent superhero like Xavier striped of all his wisdom. The girl who plays Laura is really good. She doesn’t say much but her emotions really help give her character.
The action is really good. The action however does have my main problem with the movie and it’s that the movie is a bit too violent for my tasted.There’s a scene where Laura comes out of the warehouse holding her a cut off head and throws it on the ground. I know Deadpool was pretty violent but it was mostly for comedy and enjoyment.
Logan is a very bittersweet end to Hugh Jackman’s performance of Wolverine. I can see Logan getting nominated for Best Actor or even Best Picture at the Academy Awards next year. Hey if Mad Max Fury Road which is by the way a sequel can be nominated, who says this movie can’t? I enjoy Deadpool more due to it being more fun to watch but Logan is probably better in terms of acting, and writing.
+Good action though….
-Too bloody and gory
One final note: Who enjoyed the Deadpool 2 teaser? I did.
