Is 'Logan' just too dark?

Hugh Jackman say he's playing Wolverine for the last time in "Logan." While some fans were worried when the trailers indicated a dark and depressing film, the final product is definitely a gloomy, dystopian Western. Some fans are embracing the grittier tone to the final Wolverine movie, but others say it might be too bloody and sad for what has been a PG-13 franchise. Does the dark tone make "Logan" an awesome film, or just a depressing final installment? đŸŽ„

"Logan" could very well be first great superhero movie of 2017. While past "Wolverine" films have mixed mediocre storytelling with amazing action, "Logan" offers a sad, but complete "final" story with bloody-fun action. Long-time fans were cautiously optimistic with what the trailers showed. But now that the highly-anticipated film is out in theaters, it's winning over fans.

The trailers had fans concerned, and filled with questions. Is the X-Men timeline shifting yet again? Will "Logan" be too gritty compared to previous installments? What ever happened to the other X-Men? Will Charles Xavier die? Will Old Man Logan die? What happens to Laura Kinney (X-23) in the end? Is the film too gory? Will it make us too emotional? 

If you have seen "Logan" then you know the answers to most of these questions. But while some fans are stoked, others are scared shitless about the movie will give us.

Grunge writer Toni Matthews wrote about these concerns a while back.

Fox executives were concerned that "Logan" would be too dark for a bulk of comic book fans. In a Q&A at the Recode Media conference, Fox film chairman Stacey Snider said:

Inside, there was real consternation about the intensity of the tone of the film 
 It’s more of an elegy about life and death. The paradigm for it was a Western, and my colleagues were up in arms.
