Saw this tonight, thought it was fantastic. Patrick Stewart was brilliant in it.

Patrick Stewart was brilliant in it.

Wasn't he, though? I loved his swearing, for some reason, like a man at the end of his faith, with hardly anything left to believe in yet finding a reason to believe anyway. Such a powerful performance, I thought, on a par with any other in cinematic history. Which is not to detract from Jackman's performance, which is equally moving (to think that Wolverine would be Xavier's final protector says so much about both characters). I'll admit to having a tear in my eye as the credits rolled.

Every part seemed perfectly judged, from Stephen Merchant's Caliban (and who'd have thought that could ever be a thing?) to Dafne Keen's perfectly vicious Laura - the scene where she punches Logan in the face is brilliant - and the whole tone of the film is perfect. When I get the DVD I'm sure I'll find inconsistencies and mistakes to gripe about but, after a single cinema viewing, I think this is as close to the perfect superhero film as I've ever seen. Bravo. Just, bravo.

That was just great.
Magnificent performances all round, in particular Sir Patrick Stewart.

There are of course some minor niggles;

Was it really necessary for Laura and the nurse to seek out Logan for help? They had the resource (cold hard cash) and capability to drive across a few states to the rendezvous point. It's debatable whether Bad Guy Inc. would have ever caught up with them without Caliban's tracking skills.
I'd have preferred to have Laura remain mute until the final lines; "Daddy" / the eulogy. .

Anyway- possibly the best comic book movie of all time? For me, yes.
