Check out my latest review of a X-Men Movie: X-Men: Apocalypse
WHAT I LIKE?
If you are a die-hard fan of the X-Men series and Wolverine himself, you can find this film generally satisfying. This final saga has somehow changed the tone of superhero films and will surely pleased fans especially those hungry for violent and bloody Marvel fights. Logan did not disappoint on that aspect. With its superbly executed action sequences and wolverine stunts, the movie has already gave your money’s worth. The overall tone may be a bit different than other Marvel movies but Logan was able to impress its audience with the brand of violence and action expected from the film. The concept of the child was predictable. But the child’s performance was outstanding. Loved some fight scenes with Logan and the child. Hugh Jackman on the otherhand delivered his best Wolverin and X-Men performance and perhaps all of his career.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
Well, I must admit that I got bored a few times which is not my normal thing especially when its Marvel. I just didn’t like the tone at all. Aside from a confined and limited setting, the movie lacked the superhero impact caused by previous films on me. How I wish the formula was tweaked a bit. Oh well, its Wolverine. At least, this is still better than the Batman Series. But if I am to compare it to Batman V Superman, I must give it to DCU this time.
