Could’ve easily deducted pts for the acting on hand but the atmosphere created by Carpenter and overall tenseness of Prince Of Darkness was sublime.
As a film, the original Goon stood out on its own as nice little underdog story and a sequel was probably unwarranted. That being said, this film isn’t half as bad as it’s made out to be. I’d say it’s almost on par with the first instalment whilst adopting a more serious tone in the process.
Tried so hard to find a fault in this film but it honestly proved very difficult. Logan was so far detached from the tame product marvel generally produces.
The vulnerability shown by Logan as well as the almighty Xavier’s own ailing existence brought a welcoming human element to the experience.
This was Jackman’s best take on Wolverine to date and probably his finest work overall as an actor.
Extraordinary film making and actors attached to the project.
Emotionally latched onto Beale St and I eventually broke. A very rare feat for a film to have that kind of impact on me. Still a little baffled as to why it was snubbed at The Oscars for a best picture nominee. Either way, the magic and honesty of this film hit me hard.
Feeling very numb now.
