    ★★★★½

    A grim and bleak look at revenge through a Dark Souls/Skyrim lense.

    Definitely an all-timer and if watched as a double feature with the Donner Cut of Superman 2, it's one of the best cape stories ever put on celluloid.

    Tremendous. An astonishing, heartbreaking achievement by all involved. Logan is the real deal and the standard by which all other comic book films should strive.
