This is a followup to my post last night, with initial thoughts on Logan. I wrote the original post right after I got home from the movie, while everything was still fresh in my mind. Now that I've had a chance to sleep on it and think about it, I am confidently giving this an A-, and I wanted to add some more thoughts.
Naturally, of course, this post has plenty of spoilers.
As Wolverine is dying, he says something like "So this is what it feels like." As I watched the movie, I assumed he meant that he was feeling what it was like to die, but maybe he meant what it was like to have a family. Maybe it was a little bit of both. I like it either way.
Patrick Stewart was amazing as Professor X (as always). But this portrayal as a man with a degenerative brain disease, still wanting to do good, was especially exceptional. But I'm not sure how I felt that he died immediately after remembering how he had killed people, including his X-Men. On one hand he didn't have to live with what he had done, but on the other hand he never got a chance to redeem himself (although he had probably built up a ton of karma points beforehand).
The scene when Laura starts to talk and is yelling at Logan in Spanish was hilarious. You could just feel his frustration of having no idea what's going on, she's a kid being a kid and just yelling, and it was a great break to the overall tension.
