Logan

Logan_2017_posterLogan (2017) – 8/10

This is a movie with achingly deep feeling about love, loss and redemption.  The weariness of ageing.  Characters you care about, really care.  Oh yeah, and some damn fine bloody action.

Am I talking about an ‘X-Men’ movie?   X-Men movies are super silly these days; a multitude of mutants that have no depth and that you can’t keep track of anyway.

Logan is different, in a class far above the ubiquitous comic book movies and tv shows.  Is it the story?  Is it the actors? Is it the director?  It is a heartfelt farewell to Wolverine and Charles Xavier, whose super heroic appearance belies their humanity.
