So making Victor take the place of Dog was fine for me, but like you said, the name Logan just came out of nowhere after that point.
I could buy it if his middle name was Logan, because sometimes people do just prefer to be called by a different name -my friend's mother always called her husband by his last name, so I guess it's just a matter of what each person likes to be referred to as, since I never heard of something like that before. It doesn't bother me too much that we get no explanation as to where that name came from, but it really could've been a five minute scene to fix all of that, at most.
Yeah, I knew where it came from, so it didn't bother me too much. But it had to be confusing for anyone who didn't know. I love the scene when Rose gives him that name in Origin, and while I can see why there was no need for Rose in the movie, something comparable would been great.
I loved the whole brother angle - much more Jeph Loeb explanation, which I never really liked. And I thought Hugh and Liev had terrific chemistry in the scenes they had together. I'm not a fan of the alternate mind-wipe scene from the DVD (seriously, why on earth would Logan volunteer for anything Stryker was offering at that point?), but I do love the moment when Victor keeps asking if Logan will remember him and wants the whole thing stopped when he learns that he won't. That was great.
