Logan Review


In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.

Logan (2017) is a 2h 17 min rated R American science-fiction drama action superhero film that is the tenth installment in the X-Men film series and is the third and final Wolverine film. This film is the last Wolverine movie that Hugh Jackman will be starring in since he first appeared seventeen years ago as Wolverine. Director, executive producer and co-writer James Mangold (Walk the Line (2005), The Wolverine (2013), Girl, Interrupted (1999)) did a remarkable job executing this movie that fans have been waiting for years. The film contains nudity, extreme graphic violence, bad language, suspense, thrills, adventure, cyborg, mutants, special powers, gore, and intense fighting scenes.

Logan takes place in a world/near-future where mutants are becoming mostly extinct in the year 2029. Logan (Hugh Jackman - The Prestige (2006), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), X-Men (2000), Prisoners (2013)) uses a different identity and is struggling as a chauffeur. Logan takes care of Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart - Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994), X-Men 2 (2003), X-Men (2000), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)) who is not safe to be around. Xavier has dementia, and that mixed with his extraordinary power is something dangerous. Logan uses the money he earns to buy illegal medications for Xavier. Logan accepts a job offer that pays him a huge amount to take care of a child and later realizes that the little girl has the same powers as him. His mission is to protect the little girl from the people who wants to take advantage of her skills and abilities.

The opening scene was unexpected and greatly appreciated as we see carjackers being mutilated and left with missing limbs. Logan is more violent than Deadpool, John Wick (2017) and other movies. The body count was outrageous along with the graphic images and violence. I love the scene where Logan, X-23/Laura (Dafne Keen - The Refugees (2014-2015)) and Xavier are on the road. Logan’s best performance was in Vegas - that is all I am saying - no spoilers. All of the actors gave us excellent performances and did justice to their respective roles. The special effects, sets, the sound was fabulous, and everyone that had a part/job in the movie did an excellent job with their jobs.
