Review: Logan

Logan
There only three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and the fact that someone is hard at work writing a sequel to the X-Men movie you're currently watching. Logan, the third Wolverine standalone movie after X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, is the exception: it is the last in its series, because Hugh Jackman says so, and not just because they've run out of ways to name Wolverine movies. Buoyed by the success of 15-rated Deadpool and supported by Jackman's desire to leave a lasting legacy for his defining role, Logan is that rare superhero movie that feels like a full stop rather than a comma. Intentionally distanced from the rest of the X-Men universe and its frankly Gordian timelines, Logan stands alone as the best of the series: a bleak, bold and mold-breaking masterpiece of the genre.

Despite the brutality of this film, the first adjective that came to my mind after watching it was 'beautiful'.

Impossible task, one would think, to mix so effortlessly so much swearing/blood spilling and actual great piece of cinema with tears inducing scenes in one picture.

Taking risk do pays off, when one taking risk knows one's shit (yes, I am looking at you WB).
