A meditation on old-age and mortality that just happens to be a "superhero" film (- oh, and a road movie too).

Ran, Last Orders, The Unforgiven, to name but a few, all came to mind as we watched.

The performances of all three leads are superb - especially Dafne Keen, considering her inexperience.

Would defintely go to see again.

In many ways, it will probably not get the plaudits it deserves, simply because it is a "Marvel-verse" movie.

I saw this and thought it was indeed a meditation on failure of a legend and the attempt to live up to that reputation etc. Interestingly enough the guy in my comic shop in Brighton was quite harsh on it.. seeing it as a throwback to 90's movies etc.

Glad i've seen it.. not sure i would see it again..

Great great great. Big thanks to Deadpool for opening the door to R-rated superhero films. Logan really takes the bull by the horns early on and I was thrilled throughout.

Like X-men meets The Last of Us with a bit Lord of the Flies, this film ticked all the boxes for me. Film of the year so far.. 9/10

i'd glad I saw it again, I dropped off first time due to taking an overnight coach night before, and slept through nearly 45 minutes - which proved excellent on 2nd viewing.
No, I do not want to see Bad Boys, ok?

Loved it. Again I knew a little from hearing some spoilers on Graham Norton, but this really didn't retract from an amazingly good X-film.
Spent the whole film trying to place the actor playing the head of the Reavers. My guesses ranged from Aaron Paul to Johnny Depp! Yes, really - I do struggle with facial recognition. This from me who mistook Kevin Costner for Thomas Hanks a few weeks ago. Lol.

Film of the year so far for me

Pity I didn't read the no end credits scene bit above before I sat waiting for it. Doh!

This would have been a great movie even without the superhero attributes. I can picture it in my head, a story driven road trip story across the country. Made me want a Last of Us film badly!
I hope Hollywood doesn't rush out dozens of 15 rated films after this trying to cash in. Logan works because its just dam good!
Last five cinema trips as of 14/06/17
Alien Covenant - Odeon Leicester Square
Colossal - Odeon Holloway Road
Baywatch - Showcase Bluewater
Wonder Woman - Showcase Bluewater

I loved this film. Action from the start to the end. Even my very particular OH gave it 8.5/10.
I'm looking forward to watching it again.

What a great movie. In my opinion not only the best x men movie ever but also one of the best comic book movies ever. 9.3/10
