Great acting, and every scene seems to become better and better the more I watch them. Especially the quiet ones. I liked Mangold's earlier movies already for the most part, but now I'm convinced of his skills and love for the cinema.

It's not like this movie is overly deep, but it seems to have subtle layers in it. Absolutely love this film. So much that I updated my previous Mangold favorites Cop Land and 3:10 to Yuma to blu-ray format immediately.
For me, it's not even being "underwhelmed". It's like I said - I prefer the X-Men as a group, and their stories as a group, over the individual stories.

Also, while the vast majority of fans have been asking for this story to be adapted, it wasn't one that I was particularly attached to. I mean, it was a good story... but Logan isn't my favorite character, he's not even a top favorite character, and this wasn't one of my favorite stories from the comics.

But man, the more and more I watch this movie, the more and more I really appreciate how good it was. And like I said, I wasn't underwhelmed the first time. I loved it originally as well. But I can appreciate it more the more I watch it.

Except for the final act lol. I'm not a huge fan of Mecha-Samurai. Not adamantium bullet bad... but still not good haha.
