... Too far?
Probably most certainly too far.

Looks like an X-23 Film is a possibility after this, which I am down for.

Just like with Mad Max Fury Road it looks like there'll be a black & white version of the film.

What do I need to know going into this?

Probably who Wolverine and Professor Xavier are and the basics about Mutants and Humans? If there's any more required knowledge, I'll let you know in a couple days, but I can't imagine the film assumes anything beyond just that at most.

Yes that is all you need to know.

Also, holy shit this movie was fucking amazing.

(SPOILER)
A buddy of mine that said that this film is a a blood brother to Children of Men and the more that I think about it, it is a LOT like that. The theme around a journey, saving a kid, the way that it starts and ends with the bold titles.


Really though. I loved this film a ton, and really hope that this gets the point across that even comic book films really benefit from character-driven stories over the world-ending VFX-centric conflicts that have become the mainstay of that genre.

Okay, just came back from the theater. All in all, a movie well worth watching. Technically the best out of the Wolverine films, considering the first being just okay (yes, I'm very generous), second being slightly better.

(SPOILER) A very sad but fitting departure to Hugh Jackman's character, but perhaps the most personal Wolverine movie to date. I genuinely felt a part of my childhood die when he finally kicked it in the end. Too tragic.

A few gripes I need to address though:

Weak villains: Daniel Pierce and the Reavers just never shone to me, and I'm kind of disappointed Mr. Sinister didn't make an appearance. I assumed Richard E. Grant was going to play him but nope... also, X24 I find, rather uninspiring, just an evil younger clone of Wolverine. For a few moments when he first killed Prof X, I genuinely thought he was Liev Shreiber back in his role as Victor Creed/Sabretooth (maybe because of the sideburns!). Now THAT I think would have been a surprise and interesting, having Logan's old enemy return for a last fight.

Second, the movie never clearly explains what happened to the X-men. All the movie (vaguely) reveals is that Prof X made a boo-boo when he had a psychic seizure due to old age and 'killed' them all. Next thing you know Chuck is like "Whelp, I'm outta here!". Bull... raises too many questions and I really wanted more answers from this. And how the hell could he have killed everyone?! All it does is put people in paralysis, NOT kill them (unless I'm missing something here). And yeah, no mention of Magneto whatsoever.

On a positive note though, I LOVED the Deadpool teaser at the beginning, funniest part of the movie.


Verdict: 4/5

Extremely tired right now. I'll shed more thoughts later probably.

(SPOILER) About how Xavier could have killed the xmen, back in Mexico Caliban mentioned that he couldn't breathe when Charles was having the seizure. Since that didn't happen in the casino (lasted too long), I'm assuming he just sends off random psychic waves that fuck with your brain working correctly.

I'll agree with the villains, but I'm fine with it. Tho I enjoyed X-24, seeing Logan fight what he used to be.

And yes, I was freaking out at the Deadpool teaser! That was awesome, and so completely unexpected.
