Logan

Logan ★★★★½

Wonderfully adapted from the source material (mini-series Old Man Logan) to fit the cinematic world, Logan gives the world-weary Wolverine closure while creating a bit of symmetry with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the start of the solo films. As a comic fan, I take issue with one aspect, but, overall, it's a solid film. Logan feels like a nice continuation from The Wolverine, which presented Logan as a real person and not a bit player in a cartoony world. 


A strong character-driven piece, Logan is an artful tribute to both Wolverine and Hugh Jackman, who's played him for 17 years. While I'm still processing Logan fully, it's my favorite of the solo outings as it is truest to the soul of Wolverine.
