"A game-changing masterpiece." - Consequence of Sound

"A moving and mournful story of life at the end of the line, and the perfect blockbuster for these embittered times." - Time Out London

"Something no one could have expected: a creatively risky superhero movie."  - The Telegraph

"The best superhero film to come out of the comic-book world, and I’m not forgetting Tim Burton’s 'Batman' or Christopher Nolan’s 'The Dark Knight.'" - Wall Street Journal

"Logan takes its indestructible metal claws to comic book movie norms and destroys them, and it’s a wonderful thing." - San Francisco Chronicle

"The rare action flick in which the quiet moments are as compelling as any of the fights." - MTV News

"A terrific movie, no 'comic-book' qualifier required." - The A.V. Club

"An uncommonly mature comic book movie, practically from another universe unto itself. It's a movie demanding and deserving to be taken seriously." - Tampa Bay Times

"It’s not just one of the best superhero movies ever – it’s a damn-fine cinematic representation of the human condition in all its agonizing forms." - We've Got This Covered

"James Mangold has given us something sadly lacking in recent genre entries: hope." - ReelViews

"For all its moodiness and melancholy, Logan is also a rip-roaring action film — and it’s wickedly funny at times as well." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Transcends the comic-book genre by saying something important." - USA Today

"As entertaining as it is timely." - The Film Stage

"It's R-rated because it has grown-up things to say -- things about mortality, aging, guilt, regret, and about what happens when superheroes, tired of being superheroes, start thinking very dark, very human thoughts." - New Orleans Times-Picayune

"There is humour, compassion and a great deal more heart and soul than we have come to expect from the rote, by-the-numbers dialogue of Marvels past." - CineVue
