Logan (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.
