Movie Review: Logan

Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director: James Mangold
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant and Dafne Keen
 
There is absolutely no reason to beat around the bush so, let me just blatantly state that the final chapter of the Wolverine is one of the best superhero movies that I have seen in a long looong time. In fact, after 'The Dark Knight', despite the Avengers, Superman, Iron Man and whosoever else came forth; LOGAN is one movie which I enjoyed to the very core.
 
Just a heads up, while I may be heads over heels over the latest Wolverine; the movie might not cater to everyone's taste for, not only is it violent but, it is also quite dark and people could deem it to be depressing as well.
Nevertheless, it is indeed a glorious treat for comic book fans; especially Wolverine fans, who might wet their pants a little.
 
The movie is set in the year 2029, wherein a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) is looking after an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart), in a hide out, near the Mexican Border.
With mutants on the verge of extinction; Logan and Charles might have been the last few of the dying breed till they come across a young mutant who is being pursued by dark forces led by Pierce (Boyd Holbrook), which up-ends their attempts to hide from the world.
 
What sets the movie apart from the other comic book adaptations is that the director portrays a world that feels too real like our very own; unlike the 'realism' that the other movies have showcased over the years. Because of which, the violence also somewhat makes sense; which like I said earlier, might just be a tad bit gruesome for a few.
Top it off with some brilliant action sequences and several plot twists along the way and you have a winner.
 
If this movie indeed is Hugh Jackman's farewell to the X-Men Franchise, as he has repeatedly stated so then, this is surely an impressive way to bow out; for which I give LOGAN 4 Shors on 5. Cheers.
