(This review may contain spoilers).
Having watched (or, rather, re-watched) the X-Men movies, I chose to re-watch this movie, too.
Again, I know that this really isn’t true to the comics. I personally found it quite entertaining. It was good to see Logan’s past… and even get a glimpse of what he was like before he discovered he was a mutant.
It was interesting to see Logan’s relationship with Victor. There were some contradictions to the first X-Men movie, but actually not that many. It was also pretty cool to have the opportunity to see Scott as a teenager.
I felt the film creators did a good job of making Logan seem younger for most of the movie. It was nice to see his relationship with Kayla and it was also good to see his claws before his skeleton was coated in metal.
I found it interesting to see that most of Logan’s and Victor’s early lives were filled with violence and how the two of them ended up taking two vastly different paths. I also enjoyed seeing Gambit in this movie… and I found Wade to be an amusing character at the start.
It was interesting to see Stryker in this movie and have the reference made to his son. I did find him a really difficult character to relate to. He wasn’t one of the interesting villains.
There were some pretty cool mutations in this movie, particularly when it came to Wraith’s. It was good to see how Logan worked with the others… even with Victor again later on.
There was quite a bit of action in this movie. Some of the other characters’ motivations were easy to understand. I was confused about Victor apparently having the same healing ability as Logan, though.
There were some other contradictions in this movie, I felt. It would have been better for it to tie in more seamlessly with the previous movies. But on the whole, I did really enjoy watching it. The ending was quite sad… but I hope to see more of Logan in future films; and potentially have some of those loose ends tied up.
