Is the movie worth your time and money? According to the critics, the movie is one of the best Marvel films ever.

Here's what the top critics are saying about the anticipated movie.

Hollywood Reporter

Seamlessly melding Marvel mythology with Western mythology, James Mangold has crafted an affectingly stripped-down standalone feature, one that draws its strength from Hugh Jackman's nuanced turn as a reluctant, all but dissipated hero.

Entertainment Weekly

It's both the most violent film in the series and the most sentimental one. When it's not showering you in blood, it's trying to make you spill tears.


The analog pace and elemental story work for it. Each time the violence explodes, it's slashingly satisfying, because it's earned, and also because Mangold knows just how to stage it.

The Wrap

Perhaps it's just the novelty, but that explicit violence and salty language (Professor X turns out to be quite the potty-mouth as well) adds a bit of much-needed fizz to the Wolverine sub-franchise.


Better as an agitated Western than as a fading superhero movie (or a listless cross-country chase), the most cantankerous X-Man's final outing is a scaled-back affair that nevertheless knows how to swing for the fences.

USA Today

Easily the best Wolverine outing, Logan is The Dark Knight of the mutant-filled X-franchise, a gripping film that transcends the comic-book genre by saying something important ...

Time Magazine

The grim side of human nature is all over James Mangold's Logan. But that doesn't necessarily make it a good movie.

Directed by  James Mangold, the film also stars Patrick Stewart, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.

"Logan" is scheduled for a March 3, 2017 release.
