Thank you James Mangold!!!! The director brought this movie to my kind of level of heartbreaking brilliance. There are two main things I love about the film, firstly it was rated R. I love the rating because it allows the movie to take on a darker tone with more brutality and gore scenes, making it truer to the Wolverine character. It also keeps me pumped and wanting more. Secondly, I love that it has a main female badass character. The combination of the movie being Rated R, plus being a Marvel film and the Marvel film being related to the X-Men is just perfection. How I wish all the superhero films were rated R; well at least the X-Men franchise and the DC films.
This was the best X-Men related film out of all the franchises. X-Men needs a reboot so badly, that being said, the past films have their entertaining moments but aren’t as good as they could have been. The one person who makes the X-Men films bearable to watch is Hugh Jackman. His portrayal of Wolverine/Logan is body and soul, though, it’s a shame there isn’t a balance of shine towards the other characters.
The composer, Marco Beltrami did a good job but I don’t believe it’s his best work.
Surprisingly, the character who made this film intense with a savage animalistic instinct was Laura/X-23 (Dafne Keen). This was her big role and she was a natural. I love when she screamed in anger and the way she leaps to tear people apart is so gore and badass. I want to see more of her and hopefully her character gets a spin-off as soon as possible. Love the complexity between her and Logan, so profound, cold and heartbreaking. There was only one scene where my tears couldn’t be held back. It was one of the last scenes of the film, the conversation between her and Logan was the key emotion needed for his character with this being his last appearance. What a beautiful way to end his character. The one thing I’m going to miss more is the great team up between them, the synchronization was fantastic to watch.
Hugh Jackman will always be Wolverine.
