Parents might be concerned, but be warned, "Logan" isn't for kids. Many film critics argue "Logan" is dark, bloody, sad, but a compelling final chapter to Wolverine's saga. The film's grit is what makes it a badass critical darling with a 93 percent fresh rating. So, is "Logan" too dark?
"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.
