Not gonna downvote for differences of opinion. Instead i'll disagree with your feelings because I think its one of those movies you have to know its roots or maybe had read it when you were a kid to enjoy it.

The original was a comic written by Frank Miller. He's stuff has been adapted to the films alot, like "30 days of Night", "Sin City", "300". This was at best influenced by his novel "Old man Logan" but only by title. The rest is a completely new story line and might be the best writing of a comic character adaption to cinema yet. Because the "story" maybe better than the original graphic novel which was a very crazy dystopian society and far too difficult to meet mass appeal in film.

Its rare for a film to have the better story to reach that suspension of disbelief. Most often it disappoints thru inferior writing when someone tries to make an adaption to the film.

I'll tell you what cemented logan for me. (Spoiler tho, so stop reading if you havent seen it)




It was a script around defeating all super powered beings on earth with just sugar water. I saw the reverse parallel to the world changing question Steve Jobs said to Pepsi executive John Sculley to lure him to Apple. “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?”

In this movie of a world changing to super powered beings...sugar water was used to administer "gene therapy"to change the world back. So super powered beings wouldn't accidentally destroy it. No big fight just a slow process of manipulation defeated all of them.

I wonder what John Sculley today thinks about the revolution he helped market. In particular how the medium it helped create has effected the current world political situation? Maybe pushing sugar water isn't such a bad legacy after all.

I didn't like it as much as many folks. What I liked about the movie was the gloomy beginning. It reminded me of the The Last of Us video game, with Logan as Joel. I didn't like much of the second half of the movie.

After reading the story in Wikipedia, I would have loved to watch a movie adaptation. Something different, more mature, more like the Watchmen movie.

It was really "super bad", except one or two scenes. Didn't like the movie but two cops were truely insane.

People were raving about "Get out".
I completely missed the point of the movie I think. Just hated the story. And the lead actress is really really bad at acting. She had this expression on her face as if she would start smiling any minute throughout the movie and couldn't take anything seriously.

Another few bad ones on Netflix : Dog eat dog , check mate, beyond Valkyrie

I bet you are under 25, you didn't see it in the theatre, you missed the time when this movie was amazing because for our generation we had nothing like that before
