Immediate (But Also Late) Response: Logan (2017)

So this is both my immediate thoughts on the Film...but also late since I got to it WAY later than most of the World.

To sum up: On time for me- late for everyone else.  Make sense?  Great.
The Good
* The Story is great.  You really feel more for Wolverine than in either Solo Film.
* The Acting is top notch, with a broad range of intense, fun, dour, subtle and rage-filled.
* The new additions shine quite well, from the little bit of Caliban to the awesome X-23.
* The Film is truly a showcase for Wolverine, without the over complications of Origins or the suddenness of The Wolverine.  If this is his swan song, it is a good one.
* The Story hints at some really interesting things without explaining them too much.  That said...

The Bad
* The Film hints at some stuff that you'd really like to see explained more in-depth.
* The dreary Tone throughout may lose some people.
* The Gore, while not excessive for me, will probably have a similar effect.
* While nitpicking a bit, it is hard to place the Continuity here.  He has something from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but that's not in Continuity, right?

  1. I loved the film. It's the best Wolverine/X-Men film ever. Apart from "Deadpool", if you want to include that as an X-Men film :)

    What's the problem with continuity with "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"?
