Every now and then, somebody at Fox realizes that the X-Men franchise has the most amazing characters in the entire genre and f*cking DOES something with them. The last time that happened was X-Men: First Class (before they had to travel through time and shit). Logan is one of those moments aswell. Mangold and co have created a simple, linear narrative that puts beautiful work in builing the characters. All the rest follows accordingly. The result is a high watermark for superhero movies and quite simply an instant classic.
"Joey, there's no living with... with a killing. There's no going back from one. Right or wrong, it's a brand. A brand sticks. There's no going back. Now you run on home to your mother, and tell her... tell her everything's all right. And there aren't any more guns in the valley." :'(
After the terrible Origins: Wolverine and the anemic The Wolverine I had given up on seeing the big screen really doing justice to one of my favorite comic book characters. Then Deadpool proves that somebody really has the balls to make a superhero movie that isn't a PG13 video game cutscene. And then they announce Logan, with an R rating and an Old Man Logan-esque setting.
Long story short: They nailed it. This is the definite Wolverine movie. Forget the other two Wolverine movies. Check out X-Men 1, 2, First Class and Days of Future Past with your kids if you like. But this one is a must see.
