I didn't even recognize Donald Pierce in that trailer.  I hadn't known he was in the movie.  I believe that X23 was first introduced in the cartoon X MEN EVOLUTION then put in the comics.  I seem to recall reading that she was now Wolverine in the comics.  There do seem to be a lot of Wolverine tyoes running around now.  Although that would probably be down my list on the things most wrong with the franchise.  Let's see if this is really Jackman's swan song.

Wolverines? What the ever-loving, all-American, red-white-and-blue FRIG???

**********

Wolverine/ Logan is Canadian. Your red, white and blue diesn't matter to him.

From the info floating around online, it does indeed seem that Logan's healing ability is degrading steadily, as it had in OLD MAN LOGAN, the comic book miniseries.

My wife was interested in the movie after seeing the trailer, and we discussed how far it would have to diverge, given that Fox doesn't have the rights to much of the story's necessary elements. Looks as though it'll be Logan vs the Reavers (led by Donald Pierce), with Sinister as the mastermind behind them.

And it is true, if all you know is the on-screen adaptation, you'd never know John Rambo (to take one example) absolutely dies at the end of David Morrell's novel.

"d it is true, if all you know is the on-screen adaptation, you'd never know John Rambo (to take one example) absolutely dies at the end of David Morrell's novel."

I would NEVER have known this. But, funny enough, when I was a kid, I picked up and read the novelization of Rambo: First Blood Part II, also written by Morrell.

No offense to anyone who's excited for this but I feel like it's aimed at the
around 18 to 25 age group or anyone who likes to see explosions and
blood.. Weird but while I like super-hero movies I get tired of explosions
and people bleeding so not for me.

To be blunt, these X-franchises, to me, are aimed at a crowd who don't HOW off-model the characters become... and are excited of the glimpses they do see from these Fox movies.

Not remotely interested.

-C!

I didn't even know it was a book! But I'm glad they didn't go this way, because Rambo 4 was the best of the Rambo movies.

-----

The post-credits tease at the end of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE showed a
vial of Wolverine's blood being put into a case belonging to Essex Corp.
Nathaniel Essex is Sinister's real name.

To be honest, when I saw the movie Forest Gump in the theater I kind of figured it was based on some John Irving novel or other. 

I guess it sort of reminded me of The World According to Garp, Hotel New Hampshire, and A Prayer For Owen Meany which were the only three Irving novels I had read at that point.

I've seen Morrell speak once or twice, and heard him relate the experience of meeting Stallone during the filming of Rocky III. He said the set's security was pretty bad and that Stallone was a lot shorter than he would have thought, but a really great, smart guy.

He also said he was a little surprised Rambo lived in the movie, but had no quibbles with it, since it meant one of his creations outlived his original work (by a lot).

Old thread is locked, but reviews are starting to surface, and they're surprisingly through-the-roof:


Still no interest is seeing this in the theaters, however, but may have to give it a rental, just to see if the critics know what they're talking about... or if they're completely off-track!

I like James Mangold, so I will be checking this out in theaters.

The Wolverine came so close to being a decent adaptation, I'm hoping this is as good as it seems.

As far as I know, Hugh Jackman is playing Logan (Wolverine) for the last time according to how own press.

Jackman's people are definitely saying it's his last movie as Wolverine but with all the schtick he and Ryan Reynolds are doing, I'd be surprised if he doesn't pop up in the next "Deadpool" movie, at least as a cameo.

Jackman was recently quoted as saying that while he was "definitely" done with Wolverine as far as FOX is concerned, he would eagerly reprise the character if and or when Disney/Marvel got the rights back, and would happily play Logan "For as long as they wanted me to".

Which either speaks to him not being particularly pleased with the direction FOX has been taking with these films, or an eagerness and preference to work for Marvel. Or perhaps both.

What happened in Rambo 4? And how did a John Byrne page diverge into this territory? I am looking forward to the Wolverine movie for entertainment value alone. How bad can it be?

I'm pretty convinced that Jackman will eventually be in a Deadpool movie, but not as Logan: instead, he'll be Hugh Jackman and Deadpool will drive him crazy by constantly asking when he's coming back as Wolverine.

So, USA Today loved the movie and used the phrase,

 "a gripping film that transcends the comic-book genre by saying something important."

Oy.  After all these years, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

I just returned from seeing LOGAN.

NON SPOILER review: The best solo Wolverine film definitely.

In case the R rating didn't already tip you off, this film is not intended for young children. It is bloody and violent, and does not shy away from adult language.

I believe the X-MEN team films should be all-ages, but I have no problem with Wolverine's solo outings being more adult. After all, we are talking about a man who has razor-sharp claws and goes into beserker rages.

This is a more dark and grittier tale than most X-Men or Marvel films, for certain. The action is great, and I think the characterizations are strong. Wolverine fans should love it, and I think fans of a more adult version of superhero action will also enjoy the film.

Saw LOGAN last night.

IMO definitely the best solo Wolverine film.

Not intended for young children. (Though there were
plenty of under 10yr olds with parents....just NO)

IMO, the story and plot don't grab me...I didn't feel
the gravitas as much as it seemed they wanted me to...

Stewart is having a WONDERFUL time here, maybe having
too much fun, considering the consequences, but, he DID
remind me of my Grandparents when they were in their
final days, so good on to him.

Jackman gives everything he's got, in more ways than
one. I appreciate you, man.

IN CLOSING:
During the finale, there was a full five minute period
where I was having an (almost) out of body experience.
The (story/score/acting/history of character/history of
actor in said role) all caught up to me in that
crescendo, and my eyes did not blink once for the whole
scene, yet, I had tears streaming down my face
endlessly. My shirt was wet, no kidding. The whole
theatre was sniffling/crying/blowing noses and the
like.

I won't need to see again for the sheer love of the
movie, like, say, a HELL OR HIGH WATER, or ARRIVAL, but
I'm glad I did see it for that final salvo.
