I took myself to see Logan yesterday. I had heard a lot of good stuff about it, and wanted to check it out. After all, how can I call myself a cinephile if I never go to the cinema? However, I found myself mildly disappointed rolling home from the Odeon yesterday. I found the film over long and drawn out. While it is true that the film takes the X-Men franchise in a new direction, the problem I had with it was that it was still trying to be an action film. It was as if it could not decide what it was: psychological drama about the passage of time, or superhero action film. Don't get me wrong,there are some very good aspects to this film, and very good performances, yet by the end I felt it dragged on a bit, with action sequences seemingly thrown in for the sake of it. Perhaps that was my fault - perhaps I should have refreshed my memory of the other films in the franchise before I set off. Nonetheless, I felt it didn't quite live up to the marvellous reviews I had heard.
