Logan aka Jesus christ, everyone gets stabbed in the face

I somehow missed this being rated r and was surprised by the sheer amount of gore and "fuck" being thrown around.

All in all, I liked it. Definitely a colossal step up from the first two and the teaser before the movie (no post credits sequence) was almost worth the price of admission alone.

The action was great and there were some truly dark and sad moments. Also some great comedy.

However there are some slow bits that seem unnecessary and x-23 screeching is never not annoying.

I'd probably see it again if I was that bored.

I heard there's a short film before it?

It's a Deadpool 2 teaser. It's pretty great.

Professor X throwing f-bombs is unsettling, by the way.

However I think he knocked his performance out of the park.

Cool.

Where do you rank it against the other Fox X films?

Well above wolverine 1 and 2, first class and apocalypse, and x1 and x3.

Honestly not sure about dofp or x2 (because I loved dofp and haven't seen x2 in so long but it was pretty good)

All in all, if you want to see wolverine stab people in the face for 2 and a half hours,  here you go.

Good movie, not mindblowingly so...unless you count the fact that they actually made a good Wolverine movie. This is what you can do when you don't put a stupid giant robot in for no reason at all. Solid B+. Easily the best Wolverine, but that is a very low bar. One of Fox's better forays into the MU. 

Most exciting thing for me: A FIGHT BROKE OUT IN THE THEATER. 10:40 am showing and the cops had to come. I got a free ticket. I guess you don't shush someone during such a testosterone fueled ride. Keeping it classy Brooklyn.


On to spoilery stuff:
Every time they did anything with anyone that wasn't one of the main characters e.g. Go to Vegas and stay in a hotel, have a nice dinner with regular folk, etc I was like "no you're going to fuck all those people over"

The opening scene could have been a Trump campaign ad. I was hoping Wolverine would turn to the camera and say "bad hombres"

I thought it was excellent.

Did not feel like a pew pew comic film. Excellent, top notch performances. NUANCE. Layered emotions, Jackman, Stewart, Caliban and X-23 kill it. Beautiful, visceral gore, great fights. My favorite hero movie in a while. Palpable rage in a lot of scenes.





Spoilers:
RIP Logan, Hugh you did an excellent job bringing perhaps my favorite character to life.

Don't say who but did any cool X-Men characters show up besides the ones we know Prof, Logan, X-23, and Caliban?
