Brutal, bloody, and beautiful, Logan is the gritty, R-rated Wolverine movie we’ve all been waiting for.
Yes, the Wolverine movie without 'Wolverine' in the title is definitely the best one yet: grown-up, ballsy, character-driven and grounded. It feels right that it should be the last one, but it also feels a bit of a shame.
Audiences looking for wham bang action may find Logan a little downbeat but there’s more heart here than you’ll find in almost any other superhero movie.
Come for the ultraviolence, stay for the low-slung, deeply felt and highly engrossing B-movie antics.
Logan is a forthright, muscular movie which preserves the X-Men’s strange, exotic idealism.
The gritty realism the 15 rating brings, mixed with the beautiful shot minimalist story is, ironically, such a breath of fresh air in the current blockbuster line up of superhero reboots and sequels.
To borrow from an earlier X-Men title, it's quite simply first class.
The fight scenes are entertainingly brutal, but the consequences are bloody and the emotional stakes high. It’s an elegiac superhero movie that understands there’s no living with killing.
With outstanding performances from Jackman and Stewart, this film gives them and their characters the send off they deserve.
Hugh Jackman could not have asked for a more poignant exit.
Hugh Jackman’s wounded superhero leads a bloodthirsty return to form for the X-men series.
