Would anyone recommend DBOX for this movie? Based on the action sequences etc...it's not playing in IMAX after Friday near me because of Kong.

I've done DBOX for The Hunger Game movies and enjoyed it for what it's worth.

I don't think it's necessary for Logan. It's a nice to have feature, but the extra cost is not worth it.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I'm a huge fan of Hugh Jackman. I feel very sad. I loved to see him with his ferocious claws. That serious look on his face one can't forget. I am totally heart broken. Decision is totally his personal choice but it is really hard to take.
I always loved the X-men series.
My gut feeling is wolverine would rather retire? No one can be next to Hugh Jackman.
Hugh thanks for entertaining for for the past 17 years

With Hugh getting older it's not surprising...he still looks fantastic, but when you see the side by side images with his first appearances you can see the difference. There's only so long that Fox could milk the Wolverine character and personally, I think it's a good thing they retired him. I'd rather see him end on this high note than risk Fox milking him with worse and worse movies/stories and seeing the character devolve into a cash cow (which one could argue he kind already became). I think it's the same reason Patrick Stewart decided he would also retire as Xavier at the same time.

Wolverine is honestly the last vestige of the "old" X-men franchise and Fox is trying to move forward with the newer/younger cast in the alternate time/universe.

If they want, they can keep bringing Jackman back for future X-men movies. They've got Old Man Logan involved in the comics right now so Old Man Logan can hang with the new kids on screen. I don't want any more standalone Wolverine movies, Logan was the perfect end to that trilogy. But Old Man Logan in X-men movies? Yes please. I know Jackman said he wants to retire, but I'm sure he'll have a tough time saying no if they give him Robert Downey Jr money.

Hmm. Basically, every sequel in the Wolverine trilogy was better than the movies before it. Not many franchises can say that.
Baaaaaaaaa!

The theater we went to sold us regular tickets that were D-BOX seats but they were turned off. It was nice having all that space :D

I watched this last night at the Don Mill VIP Cineplex. Absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed this movie and probably the best standalone Wolverine movie in my opinion. Hugh Jackman was amazing and so was the little kid ! Loved her first fight scene lol

I agree, this was a great movie to end Hugh Jackman's run. Though I'd love to see cameos from him in future movies. And the girl was great casting. She really pulled of the scowl.

But I have to admit that hearing Patrick Stewart swear was weird.

Good comic book flick that didn't feel like one.
Despite Wolverine, Xavier, Mutants, and the Weapon X program, it was very much a "Western" rather than a superhero film. From the clips & speech from Shane to the end credit song choice, to the plot devices of the reluctant father figure who had hung up his gun (so to speak), only to find a reason bigger than himself to pick it back up again. There were echoes of True Grit, Unforgiven, even Gran Torino.

Beautifully filmed. There was not a wasted shot in that movie. This is quality cinema that just happened to star comic book characters.

Patrick Stewart was brilliant in this movie. The banter between Logan and grandpa Charles was beautiful.

Sir Patrick could have another job in "Legion" which is enjoyable enough in the 5 eps I've seen. Prof X has a connection with the protagonist in "Legion".

Well said and wholeheartedly agree.
As the audience who grew up to comic books grows up, it's nice to see that the movies are also tailored to a more mature audience.

I was a big fan of the last Wolverine movie set in Japan, but this new one just didn't work for me. I guess I'm looking for a lot more "super" in my superhero movies. If I was interested in dreary, dull and depressing I would have rewatched Manchester by the Sea. Hugh Jackman is solid as always, but there's nothing he can do to overcome the tedious storyline. I'm glad to hear that lots of other people seem to be enjoying it, but I can only rate Logan a 2/5.

Wow, that's pretty cool. I knew that they had to make Jackman look older so I always thought it was just done completely with makeup.
Baaaaaaaaa!
