Why Logan is the bravest studio film of the year

Mar 03 // Matthew Razak
We all like to complain that Marvel superhero films have become codified (and DC's just suck), but one of the reasons they have is because the formula works. It works over and over and over again. Hollywood sticks to formulas that work, and they do not tip the boat. When you're putting millions and millions of dollars into something you want that money back. It's a simple reason why studios are insanely risk adverse. For every Deadpool there's five John Carters. John Carters lead to people getting fired.  That's why Logan stands out so boldly among every studio film we'll see this year. The studio actually let it take risks. They actually let it do what it needed to do. Let's start with the R rating. Wolverine as a character desperately needed this, though, the comic books never had him or Professor X cussing this much. Anyone who saw the underrated The Wolverine knows that a good sharp dose of blood and violence would have made the character actually work. Constraining a wild beast to a PG-13 was not helping. You may say that this wasn't a big risk thanks to Deadpool pulling in massive money, but that's a completely different situation. The Pool isn't as well known as Wolverine, and didn't already have an established, and young, fan base. An R rating is alienating every kid out there who loves superhero movies, and there are a lot of them. That's a huge audience that was able to see the previous films that won't be able to see this one, and that makes Logan's R rating that much more risky than Deadpool's. But it's not just the rating that makes Logan brave as hell. In fact a lot of the risk comes despite the R. With that rating they could have gone full blood bath (Logan has plenty bloody, don't worry), with action sequence after action sequence. Instead director James Mangold rolls the film at a incredibly slow pace. While it doesn't pull this off perfectly, Logan is far more character study than superhero movie. It may fall into a few traps here and there, but just getting this screenplay greenlit must have been one hell of an uphill battle. The film goes long periods without a single claw being "snikted." For a film franchise that could barely stop the action when it first launched with X:Men Origins: Wolverine this is a major divergence. Though it may have been hinted at when Mangold deftly maneuvered The Wolverine into a samurai-style film, only to abandon that in that film's latter third, Logan fully commits to treating its characters as just that. Instead of action pieces to be moved around we get characters who happen to have claws and psychic powers. In the vein of the classic westerns the film apes a little too on-the-nose, our heroes are flawed and violent, but human. Other comic franchises do have well developed characters to be sure, but we rarely see such a focus like this that character. It was a hell of a risky move for a big studio considering no major superhero film as gone this headlong into thematic development.  On top of this the screenplay calls for an aging hero and a dying Professor X set in a future that is stunningly disconnected from the rest of the X universe. Logan could easily be a stand alone film, an almost alternate universe. Comic books do this all the time with one off or limited runs, but movie studios have been remiss to push outside their universes. Part of this resistance is because the idea of a cinematic universe is still so new. Marvel is defining and re-defining what having one means with every film they release. But Fox has finally decided to go their own route. Instead of mimicking Marvel's Avenger's universe they're branching out and defining theirs by a unique one-shot. If their plan is to bridge their X-Men tentpoles with smaller character studies then its a bold stroke in creating a cinematic universe differently from Marvel's cohesive whole and DC's... clusterfuck.  And now I really need to warn you about spoilers because probably the biggest and ballsiest move comes at the end of the film. They killed their star. No wait, they didn't just kill their start, they killed two of their stars. I doubt anyone is going to give this movie enough credit for doing this. You do not kill your heroic lead in an action blockbuster. Yes, it happens here and there as I'm sure many could point out, but it doesn't happen with established franchise characters twice in the same movie. Sure, you could argue that it was easier because the story is set in the future so it doesn't affect the current universe's "present" timeline, but that just makes the entire thing more of a risk. In order to execute this movie correctly they not only had to set up an entire separate time frame, but then pull the trigger on killing two X-Men (and major Hollywood actors) in one film. Hollywood doesn't do it like this, and yet here we have Logan. A movie that knew to be as truly powerful as it could be it had to break our hearts... twice. And they let it. The studio let them do it.  I am well aware that this is Jackman's goodbye to the character so a death makes sense, but that's just it. It makes sense! That's not something I'm use to saying about studio decisions when it comes to money making franchises.  It feels weird to commend a Hollywood studio for taking risks and doing things that make sense. This is what they should be doing, right? They don't, though. For many of the reasons outlined above it is not the norm for a studio to go out on a limb like Fox did with Logan. Yet in this case it truly paid off. By allowing Logan to be the film that it needed to be instead of meddling in what they thought it should be Fox let Mangold make the Wolverine film that everyone had always wanted, and then take it even further. So here's to a studio doing what it should be doing. Here's to Fox showing some guts, bub. Here's to more like it in the future.

Review: Logan

Mar 03 // Nick Valdez
[embed]221303:43419:0[/embed] LoganDirector: James MangoldRelease Date: March 3, 2017Rating: R  Logan is both a sequel to 2013's The Wolverine and a ending to the entire X-Men franchise. In the far-ish future of 2029, we find Logan (Hugh Jackman) making his way across El Paso, driving a limo for money. It turns out mutants have essentially gone extinct, and he is only doing odd jobs in order to take care of the now dementia-suffering Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), who's loss of control over his mind has made him a threat. But one day he's approached by a woman accompanied by a silent girl named Laura (Dafne Keen) who needs help getting to the Canadian border and some place they call an "Eden for mutants." Begrudgingly accepting the task when he sees Laura shares a few similarities with him, revelations come to light as Logan has to come to terms with the man he's become. Logan is dramatically different than the rest of the X-Men films, and that's notably due to its R rating.  While I was initially afraid Deadpool's R rated success would mean Logan was full of extraneous foul language and violence (but without the cheekiness), what is present feels incredibly natural. Like we're actually seeing Wolverine for who he is for the first time, making every other performance seem neutered in comparison. This Logan is older, broken, and incredibly violent. He brutalizes enemies, but it's never portrayed as monstrous as his attacks could be because Jackman fills the role with a much needed humanity. The film always makes a point to note that he never initiates the attacks (unlike the brash Logan seen in, say, the first X-Men). The added caveat of slowly losing his healing abilities also grounds this comic book film in an unprecedented way. For all intents and purposes, Logan is a lonely, introspective character drama. While the character work admittedly will be more effective if you've seen some of the other X-Men films (at least the first one to explain some of the world's elements), it's not completely necessary. The film opens with a scene heartily establishing everything you need to know about this character, and I'll go as far to say it's the best opening scene in the franchise to date.  Logan is full of outstanding performances. While some kitchy turns from Boyd Holbrook's Pierce (a mysterious guy in sunglasses who's chasing after Laura, but Logan's not about that so mentioning his role in the story seems unnecessary), Stephen Merchant's Caliban, and a villain revealed later in the film tend to remind you it's a comic book film, the three central cast members anchor Logan's harsh reality. Hugh Jackman, drawing on his years of experience with the character, puts forth a stellar performance. As mentioned earlier, with the amenities afforded by the film's R rating, Jackman's performance rings more palpable than ever. Like this is the character he's wanted to portray since he signed on to these films all those years ago. His rapport with the sickly Charles is one of the best features in the film as he and Patrick Stewart have developed a mentor/pupil-father/son relationship over the years. Or at least ably portrayed as such. Then there's the young Dafne Keen, who's Laura is defined entirely through her physicality and manages to carve a distinct presence between the two.  Now Logan isn't perfect. One of the film's overlying themes of fighting one's past becomes a little too literal, the tone is so well established the encroaching X-Men talk feels out of place, and some of the dialogue unfortunately I felt I had to forgive under the "comic book film" qualifier, but thinking back on it, these issues didn't bother me as much as I thought they would have. Logan's imperfections lend credibility to the central character's imperfections. The film's problems mirror Logan's distraught sense of self. Is he the colorful hero of years past? Is he the beaten down man who's lost his sense of purpose after years of struggle? There's a distinct push and pull between the two tones as they blend into something not seen before in the genre. In fact, it seems, dare I say realistic?  Above all else, Logan is a film of consequence. It's the first comic book film weighted with actual drama and character work. There's an overwhelming sense of finality and dread permeating throughout making every one of Logan's struggles more tense than the last. If you've followed Wolverine through every one of his adventures, you're sure to be satisfied with Logan. If you haven't, there's still enough tactile emotion here seeping through Logan's ever-worsening wounds to draw you in even slightly.  I don't need to see another X-Men film, or another comic book film ever again. Thanks to Logan, they've become irrelevant.

NRH's Weekly Analysis: X-Men something something, Part 2

Aug 05 // Nathan Hardisty
The first effort to get a swing of the bat, or should that be a claw at the... fence, was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Another feature titled Origins: Magneto was also in development, with the Wolverine title acting as a filmy petri dish of sorts to see if a solo X-Men film could actually play out. I do still believe such a thing is possible to do, if hard to manage. Jumping from ensemble fare to deep character focus is a tricky thing for any franchise to do. It's fair to say then that Origins was surprising in just how blatantly blasphemous it was and how it made The Last Stand look like a fun movie. Origins misunderstands practically every single aspect of Logan (AKA Wolverine) to a point of anger. The film decides to sweep aside his entire life from his Civil War days to World War One to Vietnam to the deep stretches of the Cold War. In a matter of an awful montage we're shown all the possibilities, all the fantastic long stretches of historical material that could serve as the base for a great Wolverine film. Instead we're placed into a stupid action film that throws in the Blob,, some sort of Gambit character and Deadpool. That last move is probably the one that manages to score the most scorn points. Turning the merc with a mouth into a mouthless, generic 'end of game' boss.   I think I could probably harp on about Origins: Wolverine for at least a whole other Weekly Analysis. It manages to get so much wrong and practically none of it is redeemable. Hugh Jackman seems to just grin his way through the script, which manages to use all possible cliches and tropes to destroy all sense of fun, pacing or compelling elements. There is very little in the way of 'good' in Origins: Wolverine.  After the critical panning and the 'fair' box office performance, the creative folks decided on a rethink. Returning to the 'present' day X-Men films was on the table as was the Magneto solo venture. Perhaps out of a need to keep familiarly fresh whilst not being too risky, the studios decided another ensemble flick might be worthwhile, but this time set in the past. All of the notable X-Men outside of Wolverine would be given their Origins stories all in one. So we come to First Class.   Let's just say I have a big grand soft spot for First Class. January Jones really phones it in, some of the action sequences fall flat, the history of the Cuban Missile Crisis is reduced to a cinematic backdrop and the film murders most of the continuity that it set out to reaffirm. In reality, however, we have a film that, in some respects, practically erases the entire existence of the events of The Last Stand and some of Origins given the paradoxes that it plays out. The film manages to capture both the drama and scope of these two competing ideologies within the same group that eventually sprout into opposing sides. Under the same 'Mutant' banner it was Magneto that took on militarism and Xavier that attempted compassion. First Class charts their relationship in growing complexity, the Erik/Xavier relationship has always been one that's just been brilliantly realized in both comic book and film, and manages to ground the film in a more intimate conflict. McAvoy and Fassbender play the chemistry practically perfectly too, alongside the rest of the cast. Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique is one of the smartest casting decisions I can think of, and the rest of the mutant power fun fun group manage to get in some clever pieces now and then. The only scenes that really turned me off are the ones including January Jones and that one in which all of the mutants show off their powers and name each other. It just feels a bit shoved in to the middle-ground, and it's hard to take a film about co-existing ideologies even the slightest bit seriously. Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw is also a grand highlight, bringing a great degree of fun and bubbling charisma to the role. And so we go to The Wolverine. First Class works given it takes the familiar X-Men mutant ensemble picture into a whole new timeline, adding in some spliced themes of racial issues and sixties movements. The Wolverine works because it is a solo venture fully centered on showing the impact, psychological torment and destruction of one of its X-Men. Origins was focused, loosely, on filling the continuity with disgusting and dumb action that ruined comic book lore. The Wolverine is a pretty smart action flick that orbits thematic concepts from existentialism to cultural familiarity. It never 'comments on' or attempts to seriously 'dive' into these issues but it still treats its setting and surroundings with respect. The Wolverine, for the most part anyway, gets over a lot of problems with the X-Men series actually and how Wolverine dramatically fits into those films. Logan's healing factor and claws mean that the only places we genuinely feel he's under peril is when he's faced with mutants. Otherwise we likely don't feel worried about him specifically in any of the other action sequences. The Wolverine strips Logan of his healing factor and has that entire question of his valued life be the emotional flagpole of the entire story. There's a lot not to love: the Silver Samurai's entire portrayal, some of the plot logic and how it uses Jean Grey as a crutch for Wolverine's own development, but The Wolverine is head and shoulders about Origins. It's a very competent and sometimes surprising solo X-Men effort. That's all for now, I think? I've only recently seen The Wolverine and will probably attempt another Weekly Analysis at some point exclusively on the Wolverine character. Days of Future Past is also shaping up to be utterly exceptional, so that will certainly be the main man of Part 3. Until them, however, I'd like to end with some thoughts on the series as a whole. While the people at Marvel are dancing around their multiple characters and cinematic universe and Sony is too busy ruining Spider-Man, the X-Men series has been constantly surprising. Not always for the best reasons. First Class and X-Men 2 might be some of my favorite superhero flicks of all time given they both 'get' how to do an ensemble flick in which everyone is a rewrite away from being Norse gods. The rest of the series are either shallow but pleasant (X-Men and The Wolverine) or utterly revolting (The Last Stand and Origins). The transplant of the social agenda of X-Men from page to screen is, however, mostly successful in the films. I look forward to seeing more of the mutant forces of the comic books getting their own grand adventures. I just hope Brett Ratner will never be involved with, well, anything actually.

Review: The Wolverine

Jul 26 // Matthew Razak
The WolverineDirector: James MangoldRated: PG-13Release Date: July 26, 2013  [embed]216173:40497:0[/embed] 20th Century Fox must have learned something from how Marvel was handling its Avengers heroes. They're finally pulling together their plethora of X-Men characters into a cohesive plot with X:Men: First Class being the first installment and The Wolverine being the next step leading into Days of Future Past. Thus, we see Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) post X-Men: Last Stand struggling to find himself after killing Jean Grey (Famke Jansen). Enter Yukio (Rila Fukushima), who is sent by a dying man that Logan saved during WWII to bring him to Japan. Once there Logan learns that he may be able to lose his mutant ability to regenerate his quickly and thus not live "forever." Of course things are never as they seem and everything starts to fall apart as we're taken on a surprisingly introspective ride through the character of Wolverine. It's not so surprising if you know the subject matter that the film is based on which is the classic Wolverine comic book mini-series, as that's one of the most respected character stories ever told in comics. It's still surprising for a Hollywood blockbuster that adheres almost religiously to all the rules of the game. The movie is paced and constructed by every trick there is, from a perfect three act set up to scene reversals from the beginning popping up at the end. Yet these tricks work here and deliver a character, not just a man with claws. It's very much in line with Iron Man 3's take on Tony Stark where the hero gets stripped of what makes him special and thus the focus in on the man. A tactic that Man of Steel was sorely lacking.  It's no hindrance that Hugh Jackman actually commits to this rule full tilt. He's been Wolverine long enough that he's begun to define who and what the character is, and he's simply perfect for it. Just the right balance of hard exterior and softer inner soul -- with adamantium claws of course. And yes, they're real (for the most part) this time around. Not even Jackman could salvage X-Men Origins: Wolverine from the hideous special effects and complete lack of anything interesting happening. It seems the filmmakers learned their lesson from that film as The Wolverine is almost the exact opposite. That goes for the action as well, which is fantastically original while still paying homage to many classic samurai and westerns. One especially creative fight takes the standard train rooftop fight scene, but shakes it up by putting it on a bullet train where the only way the fighters can hold on is by slamming their knives/claws into the top of the train. It is nods to the genres that inspired it like this that make The Wolverine a bit more than its cookie-cutter parts actually are. If you know your stuff you'll be thinking of Kurosawa and other classic Japanese directors pretty often. This is what happens when you get a director like James Mangold to helm a big action flick. Any guy who can make something like Knight and Day work clearly has some skill and it's clear in The Wolverine. Still, this is a big Hollywood picture and its smarts don't always overcome its roots. The film can often wallow in cliches and a few poorly written scenes. While Mangold keeps many of the scenes stunning he can't keep them from feeling planned. The beat for beat hits of the screenplay are often too obvious making the overall feeling of the film lean more towards summer blockbuster than originality. In that case The Wolverine fails only because it feels like exactly what it is, which, in the end, isn't the greatest fault in the world. When The Wolverine is at its best is when it rises above its painstakingly crafted (not in the good way) screenplay. When Mangold and Jackman are able to take the film to a character level and not a superhero movie it can actually be stunning. When the action challenges what we've been seeing over and over in other blockbusters it can be truly awesome. When it's just a summer blockbuster, well, then it's just a summer blockbuster. Nothing wrong with the latter, but man does the former make you want more.
