Logan

Logan ★★★★★

"This is what life looks like, people who love each other, a home. You should take a moment, feel it. You still have time." - Charles Xavier

I've re-watched Logan endless times and I was pondering whether it is the greatest Comic Book Movie (CBM) of all time. I ultimately do not think that is a fair assessment as the best CBM's really are very different (Dark Night, Avengers Infinity War/Endgame, Iron Man, Superman 1978,, etc.)

This is probably the most personal and gritty of them all though, and a fitting send-off for both Logan and Fox's X-Men franchise (which technically was the utterly forgettable X-Men Dark Phoneix).

In that very first fight scene, as blood splattered and limbs flew, I think there was a collective sigh of pent-up release from all the 100's of previous PG-13 Wolverine fight scenes where that SHOULD have happened.

Deadpool deserves credit for allowing Logan to exist by breaking through the R-rated CBM barrier (and boy does he take credit for that in Deadpool 2!).

[Spoiler below]

R.I.P. Logan and Professor X.
