Action Blu-ray Drama Super Hero Ultra HD 4K

Logan: Allow me to disagree.

The entire movie is dark in spirit with X-Men all but died out and Wolverine and Professor X just waiting to die. The story is rather predictable with no major surprises, little depth and low on logic. A typical Hollywood drama. I know a lot of people seem to like it but I cannot understand why.

Logan by James Mangold on Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ – Depressing and not very fun to watch

LoganIn the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.

I believe that I am about to disagree with quite a few people now. You see, I did not like this movie.

Not that this came as much of a surprise to me. What I got was pretty much what I expected. From a technical point of view the movie is quite well done. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart are doing good jobs as always. The action scenes are good. The cinematography is not at all bad. If you are into tragic drama and do not mind the super hero twist of the movie then this is a movie for you. The technical qualities is why this movie gets any stars at all from me. If I would judge it by story only then it would have gotten zero, null, nada, nicths, rien, ingenting.

For me it was depressing, boring and not at all fun to watch. The only reason I watched it is because I, as a X-Men fan, simply had to watch it as well as having it in my collection but I would have been happier if this movie had never been made.

Wolverine is more or less an unpleasant drinking bum clad in filthy ragged clothes. Professor X is half insane and apparently dangerous to himself and the people around him. We get absolutely no explanation as to how this sad state of affairs came about.

The entire movie is dark in spirit with the X-Men all but died out and Wolverine and Professor X just waiting to die. Then in comes this female child who later turns out to be a female version of Wolverine. She pretty much lacks any form of charisma and she and Wolverine spends almost the entire time in a state of conflict, much due to Wolverine who seems to think everyone should go fuck themselves so that he can continue to self destruct.

The bad guys are the usual evil corporation doing experiments on X-Men, genetics etc. Supposedly they were behind the almost extermination of X-Men but of course they keep their own little army of “enhanced” humans that doggedly harasses Wolverine & Co. There are some nice action sequences but there is really no good overall boss. No one with enough Charisma to take the role of the main adversary unless you count X-24 who only took part in a few parts of the movie.

By the way, why the fuck do Wolverine, Laura as well as X-24 have to grunt like horny monkeys when they fight?

The story is rather predictable with no major surprises, little depth and low on logic. A typical Hollywood drama. Not really anything to write home about.

The movie is just so depressing from start to finish. As a last farewell to Wolverine and Professor X it is almost insulting. I know a lot of people seem to like it but I cannot understand why. At least not if you are a X-Men fan.

  1. I think you are just biased against horny monkeys!

    I’ve debated about whether I’ll ever watch this, as I’m not a big of “depressing” in my movies. And when it comes to superhero movies, I definitely want the “hero” part to be front and center…

      1. The more reviews I read, the less I’m inclined to want to watch it. I liked the first Xmen trilogy and I really liked the Wolverine Origins movie. Everything else “X” hasn’t done it for me, so missing out on one won’t bother me 🙂
