Director James Mangold did originally write an opening scene regarding Charles and the X-Men. Link for details.



Basically, James felt that by opening with this huge event it would overshadow the rest of the film.

I haven't seen this movie. It has 8.7 rating on IMDB and 92% Rotten Tomatoes. Eagerly waiting to see Hugh Jackman as last Wolverine.

I saw this on Sunday morning at our nearest Everyman. Brilliant film, with 3 great central performances. Merchant's Calaban was a bit wtf though.

2/3s a great film. Seriously let down by Richard E Grant's stereotype mad doctor villain and his general entourage coming off like Girl with all the Gifts extras. Boyd Holbrook from Narcos was given an odd persona too.

Moments of brilliance that is ultimately squandered on a nowhere to go climax.

Reminded me in its tone and story of Midnight Special, and made me think that if Paul Verhoeven did Marvel this is what it would be like.

Loved the cinematography, editing and music though.

My lack of x-men knowledge did frustrate though. I don't understand the regeneration and general universe of the powers of the mutants. One minute they all seem shackled and the next they're able to flip over cars and stuff.



Swearing seemed consciously overdone to me. Lost its power to shock.

Good on the whole that the Marvel stuff has explored a new direction though.

I never picked up on the 2nd part of your spoiler.

I wondered why all of a sudden this had happened to Logan.

We all wanted to see this but our son is only 13.

He's tall for his age and may pass for 15, but we don't want to risk buying a ticket online, then him getting stopped by the ticket checker.

Guess its a Bluray/DVD watch for us.

Far be it for me to say, as I saw Robocop when I was 7 or 8.

But it's pretty violent...It's 15 for a reason.

Not sure what the cost of the ticket might be, but if you really want your son to see it, wait 4-5 months and it will be on BluRay.

Probably the best option to be honest. There's nothing huge in scale that massively benefits from a cinema viewing, and assuming you have a decently calibrated set-up at home, you'll probably enjoy the (frequent) darker scenes more so than at the cinema.

It's actually quite an intimate offering, so don't worry too much about saving your bad parenting for the home.

As people have said, it's very violent and there's a lot of swearing...however, I'm pretty sure a 13 year old has seen and heard worse these days.
BUT, thematically, it's pretty mature...it's a film about very very tired people...he might not fully appreciate the film...

What a film, i'm not a big comic book movie fan, but this was one of the best action films of the past 20 years. The one big negative was Merchant - how on earth did he get this role?! Giving it to one of The Wurzels would have been an improvement. S great film.

Same here, Merchant was just merchant, apart from that a great send off for Jackman after one really **** wolverine film then a deeply average one

Hope Hugh Jackman will remain the only Wolverine. The producers, please don't come up with a new actor for the wolverine character to make another film and ruin the pack.
