Logan: My Point of View

Updated on May 6, 2017

After 17 years of playing Wolverine, Hugh Jackman did an exceptional performance on the 10th installment of the X-men series, which is also his last Wolverine solo movie as Logan. This time he faces Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce, a leader of the militant Reavers and an uncompromising fierce head of security in Transigen. As if this relentless villain isn't enough, Logan also comes face to face with himself as a clone of Wolverine, referred to as X-24. He aids Donald in retrieving an X-23 project named Laura, who has been formulated from Logan's DNA. Ergo, Logan's daughter. Wolverine's clone and Logan's daughter...this is more than enough to entice the viewers of how captivating this action-packed drama movie is.

This is the best superhero movie that I have watched so far and I am not even exaggerating. It isn't because it is receiving good feedback from the viewers and critics or that it has topped the $97 million budget by over 5 times that it has grossed $606 million worldwide. It is because I almost didn't blink or missed anything from this movie as it really was that entertaining, overflowing with action, with a sprinkle of humor and a pinch of drama.

I was a bit worried that this movie would be slow pacing and dull on its first part but it was the exact opposite. The movie started with me giggling over Logan's comedic lines and he wasn't even trying to be funny. He has become older because his healing factor has weakened but he still looked handsome in a comical way. Him, ending up as a chauffeur in Texas has added some ludicrous humor to his character. He wasn't Wolverine anymore. He was simply the impatient chauffeur Logan who drives different people in a limo but still ends up in trouble because though mutants are closed to its extinction, villains are still out there and on a hunt. Except, they weren't out to get him. They were out to get his daughter, Laura and the rest of Transigen's X-23. Just like Laura, there were other kids who have been created from mutant's DNA but they are doomed to be exterminated because X-24 was a successful project.

Anyone could imagine the action between Logan and his adversaries but Laura's character has got me down to the ground thrilled at everything that she did in the movie. How do you take your eyes off from a seemingly mute and young Latina girl who happens to be Logan's daughter? She was even faster, more fierce and stronger than Logan that despite the barbaric and an almost like Tarzan demeanor, her gaze and innocent face behind her fury has put a big heart on this movie. She longed to be recognized by her dad as his own and be reunited with the other X-23 mutant kids. I like that she's just like any other kid on a normal day when she's eating cereal or watching TV.

Charles and the albino Caliban were big accessories to the funny moments on this movie. I love that Logan took care of Alzheimer's patient, Charles. More than an old man, he acted like a kid on this movie. Logan was very mommy-ish that I was very fascinated at how they talked to each other. As Caliban helped Logan in taking care of Charles', there was even more humor to Charles hating them both for making him feel useless.

Another thing that was interesting in the movie was how independent all the X-23 kids were with their own powers. They even took good care of Logan when he was helplessly ill from his war-like battle with his opponents and contrary to his belief that mutants will be extinct, he finally saw that Laura and Charles were right...that there are new sets of mutants. Hence, mutants do have a future in this world.

I would give this 100% rating. This is even more than Rotten Tomatoes rating of 92% based on 286 reviews because I haven't seen any flaws. All the people involved in the making of this movie undoubtedly made this worthwhile knowing that it is the last Wolverine movie. I'm absolutely looking forward to the next installment of X-men.

This is a must-watch movie with more than enough action sequences, comedic lines and very heartfelt dramatic scenes. I have watched all Superhero movies from Marvel and DC comics and this is by far, the best Superhero movie of all times.
