I have not really been into Marvel films lately, they have been a bit disappointing. But not this one which I would rate as one of the best I have seen so far, along with Deadpool.
The story was different to most comic book films. It was a pretty depressing story most of the time showing a superhero falling apart and basically ready to give up. The other characters in the story were pretty much in the same boat, and if it wasn’t for the introduction of the new breed of super-duper heroes it would have been a real downer of an action film.
Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart were great in their roles. Hugh had been playing the part of Wolverine since X-Men in 2000, quite a run. The role was originally written for Russel Crowe, but Russell suggested Hugh for the part, a wise move. Patrick Stewart also started his portrayal of Charles Xavier in the X-Men film.
Dafne Keen who played Laura was great in her part, and she was only 12 years old. I can’t find anything on the interwebs as to whether she will be in future Marvel films. She is currently in filming for a comedy with Andy Garcia.
Good stuff, I liked it.
