Movie Review: “Logan”

Logan movie poster


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.


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


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