If you've ever liked any one of these, please bring all the tissues, ALL OF THEM.
Hugh Jackman at this point holds the record for playing the same superhero consistently right? I mean it's been nearly twenty years since we saw him play Wolverine, it hasn't been an easy ride, but damn is this a definite highlight, as well as a perfect ending (?) to the character. Logan is a two and a half hour film that doesn't play around, it isn't here to pander to fans, and is the depressing, but powerful goodbye Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) deserves for everything he did for this franchise. That all being said, yes this film is good beyond being a goodbye to a beloved hero, not just because we also say goodbye to Patrick Stewart as Professor X, but because it's a tight script, with great action, as well as a tone evoking classic western films, seriously this is pretty amazing.
Where Logan personally brought joy to me, was in Laura (X-23) the adorable, yet badass Latina superhero, fuck yeah representation! I may get sidetracked here, so I'll apologize, but it's so damn cool to finally see a Mexican superhero on the big screen. I don't care if you think this is some "P.C. SJW" thing, fuck you, I'm not asking every character change to represent my people, I just want to see some acknowledgment that we exist and kickass, so thank you, Logan, Laura is a damn good character, made even more special for so many who lack heroes that remind them of themselves. Granted, even if she wasn't made to represent Hispanic people, I'm sure she still would've found a strong fan base with kids, especially girls. She's a near silent killing machine, her nationality is a great touch, but not her defining feature, and as far as I'm concerned she has instantly risen to be among the best characters in this movie franchise.
