If Logan was released in October or November, Fox would most likely be putting up an Oscar crusade for Hugh Jackman, since he gives his best performance as the character, as well as his entire profession. You realise that Jackman is giving the depiction of Logan he really wanted to. Obviously, it’s fitting given that this is his last time playing the character. Jackman totally sinks into the trouble, the distress and the outrage of his character, living in a post-mutant world where all he desires is to purchase a boat to escape from everything. It’s great work with a massively cathartic result. Fox would be moronic not to push Jackman for a Best Actor nomination at the year’s end.
8. Mature In Every Aspect
Logan highlights innumerable disjoined appendages and limbs and a lot of foul language. Nevertheless, thematically, it’s more similar to a western like Unforgiven or No Country for Old Men than a run of the mill superhero film. James Mangold does a phenomenal job by giving more opportunity to characters than action. The outcome is a film that is both a real drama and greatly violent too. That is uncommon and it ought to help Logan grab many viewers.
