At this point, I'm willing to bet the farm that we get an R-rated X-MEN reboot next year...

I didn't like either of the previous Wolverine movies but I loved this one! Jackman gave a superb final performance as the titular character.

I never imagined I would love a Wolverine movie as much as I did with this one.  In fact I think it was my favorite comic book film since Guardians of the Galaxy.  I also never thought I would say this, but Fox is giving Marvel Studios a run for its money. 

This was a comic book film that only centered around a handful of characters and it worked with a very risky yet heartbreaking ending.  Loved the film.

Saw it yesterday. This film played like an old Western, very somber, dark and just did not let up. Jackman gave the performance of his career. 

I'll probably see the black and white version, whenever that comes out. 

Also, man that earned it's hard R rating. Was not expecting that level of gore and graphic violence. With the success of Deadpool and now Logan, will this become a trend for future films? I certainly hope not, but I'm afraid it's already unavoidable.

I guess I'm in the minority.  Didn't particularly care for it.  SOOOOOO graphic and brutal.  So dark.  Xavier dropping F bombs left and right.  And I realize it's a Wolverine movie.

I see this being called the X Men movie ever.  Man, has that bar been set low.  I didn't mind it with DEADPOOL because that's how I see the character and his enviroment.

I see it's cleaning up at the box office.  What other message is it to send but that's what people want.  Maybe it is, not for me, though.  I don't want a regular diet of this.

'Logan' was like the Trump speech he just gave in front of congress.

It was NOT total crap...but since the bar for X-Men related movies is set so low it's subterranean...the movie is seen as a masterwork.

Question:  Does Laura (in this movie) have adamantium bones like Logan?  It was implied in the movie but I want to be sure I'm not wrong.

Didn't they do more than imply it?  I think Logan had the adamantium bullet and said something like this is what they put inside us.  I believe they also showed a flashback scene that showed them preparing to put it in Laura.

She started in the comics after I stopped reading.  I did see her in X MEN EVOLUTION.  Obviously, a really toned down version.

Laura's claws are covered in adamantium, but I don't recall there being
anything definitive about the rest of her bones. In the comics, only her
claws have adamantium.

I think Marvel has been successful with their current formula of PG-13
for movies, R for Netflix. I can see Fox following the R trend though.

Larry, she first appeared in X-Men Evolution. She was created for the show because Quesada and Jemas told the producers and writers of the show that they wanted more Wolverine focused episodes. She was then later brought into the comics.

Rich, the thing about going R rated with these types of movies (and TV shows) is that they will eventually make moviegoers become numb and jaded by the blood/gore,sex, nudity,profanity,and (in the case of Deadpool) raunchy humor. It's like finally seeing a beautiful actress getting naked and having sex on screen. She can get a huge draw and lots of fanfare when she first does it, but by the 2nd and 3rd time she does it, people are less impressed or drawn to go pay to see her get naked and having sex on screen. Once fans have that itch scratched, they no longer feel the need to scratch it again.

GAME OF THRONES disagrees with you.

The issue isn't whether audiences will tire of sex and gore. It's whether
a film relies on them in place of story and character. But that's the same
issue with PG-13 superhero films with action and special effects.

Hmmmm...

While I was watching the movie I couldn't shake the notion that a 10 year old girl was given adamantium bones....that won't grow with her as she ages.

OR

A ten year old girl was given adamantium claws....that won't grow with her as she ages.

But then a fan with much deeper contemporary X-Knowledge than I have says now that (in the comics) there is a variant of adamantium that does indeed 'grow' with bones.  I can only assume he is right since it sounds about as dumb as everything else that has happened with the X-Men since 1990 or so.

Rick, I knew that she started in the cartoon, was created for it.  I was still reading the books at that time.  Then, as with other cartoon creations like Halrey Quinn, she wound up in the books.  I didn't know the year, but I knew it was after I stopped.

Okay, Michael. Yeah, I don't think the movie ever explicitly states how much of her body has adamantium, just that she has it.  I'm pretty sure Logan held that bullet up and said it was made of the same stuff that they had pumped into them.  From there I just assumed it was the same type of procedure.  Well, she has a foot claw too.

I looked at the X23 wikipedia page.  Pretty gruesome history.  I also went to CBR and looked at their thread for this movie.  I might have gone through 10 pages.  Pretty much nothing but universal praise, and I mean glowing praise.  Maybe the greatest comics movie of all time praise,  So what do I know?

Michael, I was talking about paying to see that stuff in the movie theater. More specifically, paying to see that stuff in a Wolverine movie again, when that itch has already been scratched.

I didn't so much mind the f-bomb Professor X was dropping as he was playing an old man suffering from a degenerative brain disease. Not sure if you've ever heard any senile old men, but they'll say just about anything without regard to consequence. Although he only really swore when he was talking to Logan. 

I thought it was a fantastic movie. All folks seem to be talking about is how brutal and violent it is, and it was that, but most of that was due to it showing what exactly Wolverine's claws could and would do if he ever really went nuts with them. And also this movie had a lot of humor and heart and just a damn good story with Oscar worthy performances by Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. The guy from Narcos was good as Donald Pierce too. Oh, and the cinematography was grand.

It is by far the best solo Wolverine movie, but I still think X2 is the best X-Men movie. I think it's fine to have an R-rated Wolverine story because with the type of violence he is capable of has shown in comics, it fits, but the X-Men don't really need an R-rated film.

UNFORGIVEN with mutants?
That's what I imagine this film. Haven't seen it yet, so
I'm curious as to how close my thoughts are.

Which is "subtly" referenced in the film. Heh.

I saw the film last night and I liked it. I think it's probably the best X-Men related film made to date. I have no problem with Wolverine swearing so much. It's within his character. Professor X doing some swearing had bothered me when I saw it in the trailers. Now after seeing the film and getting some context. I'm not bothered by it. Charles was suffering from a degenerative brain illness. So I can accept that it would affect how he behaved.
This film is a comic book movie that is for certain. I just wouldn't call it a superhero movie. It's a nice swan song for both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.

I was intrigued by how many kids were in the screening last night. The family
seated in front of me, two parents and one boy aged around 7, watched all
the violence and listened to the f bombs, but (spoiler) that time the boobies
came out, mom quickly covered the boys eyes. Kinda funny, kinda not...

I struggled to remember boobies as well. One of the women from the
bachelorette party drunkenly flashes Logan.

Apparently some people think a few seconds of exposed female
nipples is more damaging to their children than watching multiple
people get dismembered, eviscerated, impaled and stabbed through
the head.
