Logan is the tenth instalment in the X-Men film series as well as the third and final Wolverine film. Set in the year 2029, the film takes place 50 years the events of 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. A weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant Laura (Dafne Keen) arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
The cast is outstanding. Hugh Jackman gives a masterful performance in his last Wolverine film. Jackman’s portrayal as the X-Men favourite is gritty and raw. Solid performances from Patrick Stewart, Stephen Merchant and Dafne Keen (who also steals the film). Boyd Holbrook is pleasant to watch as the film’s villain.
Director James Mangold (The Wolverine, Cop Land) and co-writers Scott Frank and Michael Green have made a Wolverine film that fans have been waiting for. Though Logan is more violent than the previous X-men films, Mangold delivers an emotional, character-driven and action-packed adventure with a bit of humour. Unlike the previous Wolverine films, the plot is stable and there’s more focus the Logan character. A perfect superhero film to have everything for comic book fans and moviegoers.
An eXcellent movie and one of the best films in the X-Men franchise. Logan is a film you can sink your claws into it. Entertaining to watch from start to finish. A satisfying end to the Wolverine films that will not disappoint fans.
Rating 5/5 stars
