HINTS OF SPOILERS:




Here's my problem: They end up making such a big deal of Logan wanting to spare Lara his own life ("Don't be what they made you", etc), but... everything shitty about Logan's life is actually Xavier's fault, not his or the people who made him. Xavier is the one who accidentally killed everyone and put an end to everything they had.

Also... WHY were there no more mutants? We get the doctor guy saying he did it by accident, but... why/how?


THAT SAID... the first act/hour-or-so was god damn, motherfucking BRILLIANT. Can't say enough about how fantastic and enthralling it is. The whole movie is great, but the establishing act is superb.

And I'd put the Lara/Logan vs The Reavers scene from the ranch in Mexico (when we first really see Lara in action) at just a bit below the airport scene in Civil War. It's THAT good.

I thought the airport scene was kindergarten stuff compared to the brutality of Laura.

They directly explain it as the guys were suppressing and shutting down mutations with artificial sweeteners and etc

hint hint.

IDK character growth? Wolverine goes from sort of a dick who hates himself to a little bit less  of a dick. From reluctant to help to willing to help and care if I'm being less catty in my appraisal. And it is good to see. Though I think that's been his arc in every single Wolverine movie and in the fist X movie. Better here than in those previous entries but still pretty standard stuff on that front. Xavier was a really great and unique take on the character tho.

I'm a bit biased as Wolverine is my fave but even as a mute I thought the little girl had a Stranger Things like performance. Primal rage, and she had a nice little character arc. Did not feel like a somewhat tired hero film at all.

Also a big Wolverine fan and this is def the best we've seen him in live action.

I know they don't address it in the movie, bu do they ever mention in the comics if Laura's bones can grow? I mean 6 months from now her bones will be too small for her.

They gave her adamantium? I figured they would just leave her with bone claws until adulthood, had she remained their slave. If they gave her adamantium at that age, they were idiots.

In the comics, only her claws are coated in adamantium, not her entire skeleton. I assumed it was the same here although I wasn't looking out too closely for it when they showed the medical documentation from her adamantium bonding.


Cheers.

Just got back.  This shit is way better than any other Wolverine movie..  I would have no regrets going to see this again.  The story, effects, pacing all this shit tied in nicely.  Laura was a brutal lil piece of shit.  The kid played her role well.  Logan as the crotchety I can't help you cause I'm a mopey old dude.  Went well.  His changes through the movie were a plus. 


They gave her adamantium? I figured they would just leave her with bone claws until adulthood, had she remained their slave. If they gave her adamantium at that age, they were idiots.
I was wondering that as well as I left the theater.  I was like that bitch is gonna be a tinykin all her fucking life.  At least she's a teen in the comics.


Spoiler
At a one point they show them doing a med procedure to n her.  I figured they might've been swabbing an adamantium coating like veneer.

Saw Logan.  Decent flick and a good send off for Wolverine (although I wanted a better ending for Xavier and it disturbed me to see Xavier/Patrick Stewart say fuck).  Didn't care much for Wolverine-Clone, loved the action, loved X23, and the movie obviously sets up ... Excalibur  I mean, they already have Rictor and X-23, then they talk about how the "New Mutants" are a "Force".  Definitely Excalibur.

Also, we didn't get the damn Deadpool 2 teaser.

It's very interesting to see the dichotomy between non-comic, serious movie reviewers that have no loyalty or allegiance to the source material singing praises yet hardcore nerds saying meh.


This is clearly a GENERATION defining film and Jackman and Stewart's performance is reminiscient of Sir Lawrence OLIVIER and DDL.
