James Mangold has done something with Logan few Comic Book movies are capable of, that is making a film that stands above the genre. Logan carries itself on the merits of its emotions and doesn’t rely on huge set pieces or obvious sequel setups. Logan is a real deal movie that will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. This is what happens when you have real stakes in a film. The fact that the folks at Fox took a chance on Mangold’s vision (thank Deadpool’s success) and followed it to the end is a testament to what can happen when they simply let a filmmaker do their job (see Fantastic 4).
There isn’t much I can say that won’t spoil this film. All I can tell you is that it is worth the price of admission. You will want to go back just to feel the emotions, again, and again. I couldn’t believe that a Wolverine movie could make me feel so deeply . I went home and hugged my one year old tight. This family road trip drama had this writer genuinely surprised by its quality. My emotions are high but next to The Dark Knight, right now this is my favorite Comic Book film of all time.
From Hugh Jackman, to Patrick Stewart, to Dafne Keen I can’t gush enough about the stars of this movie. Boyd Holbrook played his evil part as Pierce but it was the fight against the constraints of life that carried this film to its completion.
