Edgar Wright never fails to amaze. Not only was this an incredibly fresh idea in a sea of remakes and adaptations, but it was badass.
The opening credits alone were enough to get me shaking in my seat. I have very few, if any, negative comments about the movie.
Two words: Holy Shit.
This was one of the freshest concepts for a movie I have seen in years. That paired with a suprise twist that no one saw coming creates an impeccable example of how movies should be written. The only negative seems to be in the density of the story, there is so much to unpack in the limited run time that one assumes it would be easier to break it into a mini-series. Nevertheless, I stand by both the 5 star rating and the comment about the film's writing.
While watching Logan I found myself comparing it to the other X-Men movies and the other movies in the superhero genre; and much to my amazement, it was nothing like those movies. This is the new model that all other movies in the genre should attempt to emulate. This film effectively trancended the genre of superhero movie and should be considered an Epic Journey film on par with The Book Of Eli or The Grapes Of Wrath...only with mutants. It left me in tears and I sincerely hope that the character Wolverine will be retired.
