Masterpiece for the end!

I'm a huge Wolverine/X-Men/Hugh Jackman fan so the fact that the movie came out the way it did makes me very happy. This is the character I (and many others) identify with and care for him since the very beginning. This standalone feature is quite different from anything we've seen and for sure the best one (also one of the best X-men films). It's more gritty, unrestrained and real, brutally violent but the most sentimental and emotional one at the same time. Relationship between Xavier and Logan it's beauiful to watch on the one side but on the other there is this crazy throat-slashing action. It's not only a great superhero film yet surprisingly thoughtful and gripping film in general. I read somewhere that Logan is Marvel's Dark Knight and I agree. It's excellent. What I appreciate most is that it's character driven. Hugh Jackman is one again superb in his role. No one can ever replace Hugh as Wolverine. Period. I don't want to believe this is it but if it really is, I'm glad to be part of it. 5-/5
