Logan has been one of the most riveting films ever made based on a comic book franchise. As a matter of fact, it has been one of the most emotionally charged and riveting films of the year. It has shown people issues such as consequences for actions. It has also dealt with aging and death. It was a chase movie which has resulted in a lot of innocent people getting killed. However, one of the most stand out aspects of the film is Dafne Keen’s performance as X-23, Logan’s clone daughter. She is going to be the one who takes up the mantle of Wolverine at some point.
Dafne Keen has put in a really good performance of X-23. She has retained a lot of the rage and the ferocity of the older Wolverine. Therefore, audiences have bought her as the animalistic successor to Logan. Logan, the film was filled with a lot of subtle touches that gave it the heart that every other comic book film lacked. At the core of its story is that of family, regret, and the struggle to hold on to what is left while not allowing anything new to come in because of past wounds.
Both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart have portrayed the deeply destroyed and slowly dying in a heartfelt way. The film itself has pulled no punches when it came to the gory details. Among the scenes that have stood out are the scenes showing the effects of the claws and the scenes where Logan is in the hospital with his wounds in view.
Hugh Jackman has turned out to be a great choice for Wolverine, the iconic character of the X-Men franchise. Many fans have considered him to be perfect for the role. Even though there are certain things about him that differed from the comics, they turned out to be rather minimal compared to the role he has played. Even though Hugh Jackman was perfect as Wolverine, he does have some regrets about the role. One thing that he has regretted was not being able to wear the iconic yellow suit in the film. One of the reasons behind this is that the X-Men film franchise began at a time when it was cool to be in all black. Also, the creative team have not figured out how to make the iconic X-Men suits work for the film.
These days, the creative team is more comfortable with showing the film adaption of the comic characters in a form that is more representative of their comics. For instance, Zack Snyder has decided to present characters with a Batman that is in a costume more representative of the comics as opposed to the mechanical black suit.
There is another aspect of Logan that Hugh Jackman regrets was not part of the film franchise. Logan had a birthday where he got to see his brother who would beat him up. There are also a lot of other aspects of the character and other characters that did not make it into the film franchise.
As of right now, Wolverine is likely to be given a rest given Hugh Jackman’s captivating performance of the iconic X-Men character.
