Among Logan’s many achievements is how it’s pared down its violence into something completely visceral. This is apparent even when dealing with elements as fantastical as a psychic attack from a telepath with no control over his brain.

This clip from the Logan Blu-ray explains the inspiration behind the scene of Logan slaughtering his way through frozen forces from Alkali-Transigen trying to get their hands on X-23 (Dafne Keen). You’ll also learn what’s actually happening to people when Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) loses control over his powers. Spoiler alert: it’s pretty horrifying.

Plus, for the real nerds, there’s the technical bit of how new technology helped them achieve the look of this scene.

Logan was releasd on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD today and has been available in Digital HD for a while.

I’ve watched the movie at the theater when it first came out; I still have a hard time shaking what X-24 did to that whole family that took in Logan, X-23 and Xavier. I know that its an R rated movie and that not only bad guys get gutted, but it was still tough to watch this totally innocent family get slaughtered one by one. I mean, the mother saw her son get brutally murdered and the dad had to watch his wife get killed too.

I’m sorta glad that the dad, with his last ounce of strength, tried to shoot Logan before he died. I don’t think Logan had a problem with it either.
