'Logan' a satisfying end for Jackman's Wolverine

Adjust Comment Print

Logan has always been the angriest of the X-Men, but here he has a chance to redeem himself (again), to save Laura but in some ways save Charles and himself, too. It's all so starkly and intensely photographed that it's incredible to even consider that it exists in the same cinematic universe as its family-friendly predecessors, but this is a darker story that necessitates the heavier visuals and themes, so I must applaud Fox for taking a chance on this bloody spectacle. I hope other people play it. I'll be really interested to see how I feel about it.

A snippet of Hugh Jackman's interview has been shared on YouTube, in which the 48-year-old actor said: "I think I'll be fine with it".

There is a ton of action in this movie and Hugh Jackman is the best there is at what he does, and what he does here is certainly not very nice. I loved Wolverine the most and during our discussion just a while back, Hugh offered me to be part of the next X-Men instalment. My personal favorite is X-Men: First Class, but overall I find the so-called "good" contributions to be pretty average or to have not aged gracefully-and yes, I'm including X2 and Days Of Future Past in that sentiment. In fact, he wants him to continue the series of Wolverine after him.

With Logan offering a new twist on a character we all think we know, the 53-year-old director also spoke out on his anger at those who see Logan as just another tool for Fox to throw in some X-Men.

It's up to Logan and Professor Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart) to deliver Laura to safety as the fate of mutants rest on his adamantium shoulders once more. When I read claws came out of his hands, I thought, 'That's ridiculous.' Wolverine is a different character.

Another of this film's failings is that it leaves a lot of blanks - like what actually happened to get us to this point in the story - that could have (should have) been filled, perhaps instead of the excessive, bloody battle sequences.
