Angry Badger Movie Review: Logan

Hello everyone and welcome to another movie review! Today I'll be review Logan.

But what is Logan you ask?

In 2029 the mutant population has shrunk significantly and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur. He takes care of an ailing Professor X whom he keeps hidden away. One day, a stranger asks Logan to drive a girl named Laura to the Canadian border. At first Logan refuses, but Professor X seems to know something about this young girl that Logan does not. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine. But she being hunted by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation; because her DNA contains the secret to the ultimate weapon. And the relentless pursuit begins. A decrepit Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use. Or should he just abandon the girl to her fate. 

Unbiased review:

     Logan is the last instalment of Wolverine as we know him in the cinematic world. An action packed movie with a "last ride" feel to it. Logan has a very nicely put together story and with a ending that will either leave you satisfied or wishing for a different ending. The movie starts off slow but picks up pace as it movie along. In terms of CGI it has a far amount without feeling like a over done CGI movie.

Logan is rated R for: Violence & Gore, Intense Fighting Scenes, Profanity,  Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking Use, and Brief Nudity.

                         Things to consider before the Movie:
Violence: It's very easy to see how this movie got it's "R" rating. There is a lot of stabbing, slashing, chopping, shooting/getting shot, decapitation, impalement, and a brief  torture scene. In a few scenes we see decapitated heads/heads getting shot. with each scene depicting corresponding blood lose.

Swearing: There is profanity used in Logan, the most frequently used being the F word followed closely by S**T, D**m, and a few blasphemes thrown in.

Avert: In one scene as Logan drives a drunk group of girls to the prom one of them Flashes him.

Other Negatives: Logan is scene is serval scenes drinking or drunk, we also see Logan's non-healed wounds. X-23/Laura is seen killing people and in one scene is seen getting harpooned, and being operated on.

Opinionated review:

How could you watch a rated R movie Marrok? I though you where a Christian! That is so wrong! WHAT IS YOUR REASONING BEHIND WATCHING A RATED R MOVIE?!!
     Hey hold on a second, let me first tell you that it's not as bad as it sounds. Well first off I will be making a separate post about movie rating and what I think about them. Second I want to say it wasn't actually that bad, that brief scene of nudity can also be found in PG-13 movies as well and was in fact very brief (like less than 20 seconds brief, I averted so I can't give exact length).
      Now with that being said I actually enjoyed Logan. Yes, I knew what I was getting into before I watched the movie but it was rated R for violence and profanity really. It's Logan, after all, based off the Old Man Logan comic series (it couldn't be a PG-13 movie). Most of you have only been exposed to the "lighter" side of Marvel movies so you may be expecting something different. But it was exactly the way a Logan movie should be. Dark tones and violent fight scenes. After all, he fights with unbreakable claws and has a bad, animal like tamper.
     It's also kind of a sad movie, since it's the "final goodbye to Wolverine". Hugh Jackman will no longer play the iconic Canadian with claws and a bad temper. He had a good 17 year run as the character and pretty much became the face of Wolverine. But now he is saying 'goodbye' in this movie, but we also get a new character who could take up the mantel of Wolverine (if they go what way) X-23, a girl who was made using Wolverine's DNA.
      There were some really nice scenes depicted between Logan, Professor, and Laura. It was fun to watch Logan play "dad" to Laura in the movie. Since they share a lot of the same tarts/background, inducing a bad temper and unbreakable claws, Logan is really the only one Laura can really connect to. It was also nice to see Marvel return to it's darker feel in the movies. Since Marvel comics are more on the darker tones but the movies are a very light tone, I almost forgot I was watching a Marvel movie.
     Now I do Not recommend this movie to just your average movie "Marvel Fan", families with children who are sensitive to violence, people who are sensitive to violence, and the like. Since this movie will most likely surprise you with the violent content (if you happened to miss the "R" rating or just think it will be like any other Marvel Movie). But if you're a fan of Wolverine (like me), don't mind the violence, and can ignore their dirty mouths, then go for it. Logan as a nice story with a good plot and solid characters (well if you know nothing about Wolverine it may not seem like solid characters). And is honestly a very nice "fare well" movie to Logan.

So what do you think? Have you seen the movie? do you Think I hit it on the nail or did I miss the broad side of the barn? Let me know your opinion in the comments down below. also let me know your thoughts on a movie like this. are you sad Logan will no longer be wolverine?

Oh something I forgot to say. If you watch this in theaters know there is a Deadpool trailer thing in the beginning of the movie, with F bombs and we see Deadpool's  butt so just be warned.


  1. Yup, you got it pretty good Marrok. But there is not just a "bit of profanity", there is a boat lode. Also, I still kinda liked the comics better. More emotional. More violent. More story. But then, I do like X-23 more than you, and you like Wolverine more than me... so that probably has something to do with it (considering the movie was called Logan and he was the focus and I really wanted an X-23 movie;).
    Anyway, good review. Thanks!

    1. Your right there is more than a bit *goes to edit*, but hey it's Logan :P Yeah that comics are still cooler but as far as movie adaptation goes it was fun. Yes I'm Wolverine biased :D

  2. Great review! I have a 15yo brother who really wants to see this, so this is good to hear. Thanks for letting us know what you liked, disliked, and what the R rating actually included. It can be hard to know how bad things are going to be. You write really good reviews!

    1. Thanks Abigayle! True 'dat, it is hard to tell sometimes was exactly is included in an R rated movie. And sometimes it's hard if you want to take the chance and watch the movie. I hope my review was able to help you and your brother/family out in deciding whether to watch it or not. Like I said in my post it's rated R for violence and profanity, violence being the more heavier of the two. Thanks for stopping by!
