Logan Movie Review

Updated on March 3, 2017

Alec is a film critic with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his reviews and articles will help launch his career.

Logan is the film the superhero genre needed. With it being Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman's final performances as their respective characters, the film promised to be emotional and a true gut-punch of a film.

The story follows James Logan Howlett, also known as Wolverine in his X-Men days, as he cares for an old and sick Charles Xavier. Charles was a mentor, a friend, and pretty much the only father figure Logan had. Logan has gotten old too, having lived a long life of over 150+ years thanks to his healing ability. He probably would still be going strong had it not been for the adamantium in his body which has been slowly poisoning him for around 50 of those years.

Logan took a job as a limo driver in order to save money to buy a boat so he and Charles could live on the sea. Charles had an ailment which caused him to have violent seizures. Since Charles is a telepath, however, the seizures cause damage to the world around him. The only way to make sure he doesn't have them is if he takes his medication. Logan figured if he could get them onto the sea, then his seizures wouldn't harm anyone else.

Logan received a call one day from someone asking for a ride. A Mexican woman and a young girl were in trouble and needed a ride to North Dakota in search for a safe haven called Eden. Logan didn't want to do it, but reluctantly agreed. The woman was murdered, however, and Logan came to find out that the young girl, Laura, was a mutant. Not just any mutant, however. Laura was a genetic clone of Logan's, making her his daughter. The men who are trying to capture her soon find her with Logan, which forces him to take Charles and Laura and go on the run.

Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart poured every drop of talent they had into their roles, giving their final bow as Logan and Xavier an unforgettable one. Newcomer Dafne Keen was remarkable, showing off a talent that not many youngsters have at that age. I look forward to seeing where her future in film leads.

In conclusion, the film was magnificent in every way. It dared to do what other superhero genre films haven't done before which was be in-your-face real. Most superhero genre films tell stories about remarkable people that always bounce back no matter what hits them and still manage to save the day. Logan, however, told a story, a down-to-earth human story about two men who meant so much to so many but have gotten to the point in their lives where no one could save them. It was a story that showed heroes for what they are: mortal, fragile, and in need of a little help sometimes. That aspect was touching, heartbreaking, and breathtaking. I give Logan a perfect score of 4 out of 4.
