I honestly expected X-24 to actually be Sabretooth when they were doing the slow hinting shots before the full reveal. When it turned out to be a clone of Logan I was let down by that.It also would have helped to reinforce the movie's theme of family with Logan struggling even more with his newfound responsibility as a father with the weight of his broken brotherly bond with Sabretooth nagging at him.
Not to mention that Liv Schriber's Sabertooth deserved to be in a good film.I honestly expected X-24 to actually be Sabretooth when they were doing the slow hinting shots before the full reveal. When it turned out to be a clone of Logan I was let down by that.
The X-Men movies have been playing fast and loose with continuity for quite some time now. Charles was actually resurrected for Days of Future Past, which is two movies ago now, so you can hardly pin that one on Logan. Also most people are happy to forget that The Last Stand ever happened, anyway. And I don't recall Logan ever having died on-screen before, let alone several times? But I think even the makers of this movie point towards this being in an alternate reality or timeline, and that probably works best (and really makes it fit in with the X-Men comics!).Charles was already dead, so what's the point to bring him back, make him old and sick and kill him again ? Logan died several times in the past, so why this time is old and dies for good ?
That's kinda what I loved about it. But it was also hopeful, I thought. And most importantly, it was different to pretty much everything (comic book movie-wise) that came before, which was very appealing to me.It's dark, bloody and sad.
