HEY, SPOILERS. I AM ABOUT TO SPOIL THE MOVIE LOGAN FOR YOU. THE WHOLE MOVIE. DON’T READ THIS IF YOU DON’T WANT THE MOVIE LOGAN SPOILED FOR YOU. THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THE FOLLOWING ASSORTMENT OF WORDS YOU ARE ABOUT TO INGEST WITH YOUR EYES…
…Not that it matters. Because while the super R-rated and somber Logan has a solid 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, it actually wasn’t all that great of a movie. Sorry, I know that upsets you, gentle reader, but if you’ve seen the way-better film that Logan completely ripped off you’d probably agree with me.
That film is Children Of Men. You know, the really, really good 2006 Alfonso Cuaron film about a not-too-distant future where our resources are limited and women can no longer make babies.
It might not be the fairest of metrics, but when you compare the two films you not only see how uncanny Logan’s plot is, but how fundamentally lacking it is in basic story structure and character development. Think of it like comparing Jackie Chan to Chuck Norris… if Chuck Norris was also two feet tall and incontinent.
Well, you know what they say – imitation is the sincerest form of plagiarism.
