Movie Review: “Logan”

Logan

OVERALL:  Yes. This is the Wolverine movie we devoted Marvel fans have waited for. Well done.

POINTS: This movie was a beautiful send-off to a character and an era of movie making. It was perfect.

PITFALLS: Nope. None.

FEMALE CHARACTER(S): Our star is of course Laura played beautifully by Dafne Keen. Such a powerful, visceral, feral character played to perfection. I so want to see more of her. Also well done Elizabeth Rodriguez as Gabriela and Elise Neal as Kathryn Munson. All hail the healers. 

CULTURAL PITFALL(S): Hmm… The X-Men story has always been one about bigotry and oppression. This movie put that right in the audience’s face. Well done.

HIGH POINT(S):

1.) Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. He OWNS the role and INHABITS the character. I remember the first time I saw him as Wolverine. I thought to myself “Yes! They got this right!”

2.) Sir Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. This movie was also a beautiful send-up for Professor X as well.

3.) Dafne Keen. Just WOW!

BECHDEL TEST (Website): 3 of 3. Our nurses planned a child rescue. Well done.

RACIAL BECHDEL TEST (Website): 1 of 3.

IMDB: Logan (2017)

OFFICIAL MOVIE WEBSITE: Logan | Home | Official Movie Site

DVD/BLU-RAY WORTHY: Yes

LION PAW PRINTS:  3.5 of 5. This is the Logan we’ve been waiting for.
