Logan ★★★★★

"What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end"

The first trailer for Logan is set to Johnny Cash's Hurt. I can't think of a more perfect song to represent this film. Logan is one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, but to describe it as a superhero movie is not giving the credit it deserves. It completely transcends the genre, just as The Dark Knight did 9 years ago. What James Mangold has directed here is a masterpiece, one that properly sends off the absolutely legendary 17 year performance by Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. His final film portraying the character finally gives us the real Wolverine. It takes full advantage of it's R-rating and it is fucking amazing. This is a gritty, bloody, and tragic film.

I'm honestly at a loss for words right now, I'll probably have to do a proper review after my second viewing. I will say though that if you're like me and went in expecting a story similar to one of the greatest video games ever made, The Last of Us, that is exactly what Logan is.

I was initially debating whether to give Logan 4 and a half or 5 stars. The answer came to me as I left the theater, wiping tears off my cheek as multiple people were loudly sobbing in their seats. That is something I can honestly say I've never seen happen before.

I haven't really looked at other people's opinions on the film yet, maybe I'm alone in how much I loved this but to me, Logan is unquestionably a masterpiece.
