Let’s face it, for anyone who has seen Logan, it’s easily the best X-Men film from the franchise, which now stretches back more than a decade. And while Hugh Jackman signed off his role as the Wolverine in style, we were all expecting Cinema Sins to pick through some its deficiencies in its screenwriting with their latest Everything Wrong With clip. As the saying goes, “no movie is without sins.”
Logan was a pretty excellent movie. But since we take our “no movie is without sin” motto to heart… we did our thing with Logan despite its awesomeness. Still found sins, like we usually do.
Since the success of Deadpool in 2016, studios have been more open to producing R-Rated superhero films, proving that earmarking the film solely to adult audiences would still be able to rake in sufficient profits to make it a hit. I’m not too sure how Logan would have played out as a PG film, with most of its brilliance derived from a more violent Wolverine. But let’s not harp on what-ifs, it was a great movie.
In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) at a remote outpost on the Mexican border. His plan to hide from the outside world gets upended when he meets a young mutant (Dafne Keen) who is very much like him. Logan must now protect the girl and battle the dark forces that want to capture her.
