Logan (2017) 
Color me not impressed.
2/4 stars

LOGAN, James Mangold's brooding and somber conclusion to Hugh Jackman's signature role, has been hailed as one of the very best superhero films since The Dark Knight, The Avengers, and so forth.
To call LOGAN overpraised is the understatement of the year. Aside from being overly long (sick of this in superhero movies) the film is overly grim and dour for its own good. Granted, there's backstory explaining the dire straits that Wolverine and Professor Xavier find themselves in, it's relentless and even the action feels more obligatory than exciting.
Basically the plot involves just two of the original cast. Wolverine is a burnt out limo driver while Professor X is slowly going crazy It's set in the future and they're in hiding while the XMEN are mostly long dead but memorialized in comic books; that last bit is actually clever. The two are forced to go on the run when they rescue a mysterious young girl from nasty villains working for this evil corporation.
So essentially it's a stripped down chase movie with long quiet scenes ostensibly for character development and the cast to shine. In fairness, the cast is the only thing keeping me from writing an entirely negative review. Hugh Jackman acts his ass off in this knowing it's his last role and he nails the same weary tiresome attitude I had with the recycled material being suddenly praised as groundbreaking and noteworthy and thought-provoking.
Perhaps that's why I'm annoyed with LOGAN. We're getting the same story except no flashy CGI and silly costumes.
