Movie Review of Logan
I have finally gotten around the seeing the blockbuster Marvel comic movie, Logan. I heard mix reviews of this film. I was not sure how I would take it. It seems like the Wolverine character (Logan) from the X-Men series has plenty of films and origin films the explain this character. Wolverine is one of my favorite Marvel characters and my favorite X-Men. I must say, I was hesitant about seeing this film because of all the previous films the Wolverine character has been in. I will let you know how I rank it, but first a little bit of non-spoil background of the movie Logan.
In the not so distant future, both Logan (Wolverine) and Professor X (Charles Xavier) are both living in secret near the Mexican border. Logan has dedicated his time to aiding Charles who is sick and dying. Logan himself is not to well either. Logan's quite little world is bright back into the big spotlight when a young mutant girl, Laura, into their lives. She is being chased by some dark forces who want her back. Now Logan must get the girl and Charles to safety which takes them on a long and intense journey north to the Canadian border.
Loaded with intense action, chase scenes and a whole lot of mutant fights, Logan delivers on all levels. This is finally the Wolverine movie I think fans deserves. Logan goes deeper emotionally with the character of Wolverine than any other movie has in the past. Hugh Jackman delivers is best portrayer of the claw fighter mutant. This film is way different than any other Wolverine or X-Men film which is why I think fans loved it.
Rating and Final Thoughts
I really didn't know what to expect about this movie. I must say, I really enjoyed it. It delivered and exceeded my expectations on so many levels. Hugh Jackman's performance was truly amazing. Patrick Stewart did a marvelous job as well. But, Dafne Keen stole the show. She was absolutely amazing. I really did not expect the cast to perform as well as they did. I did not expect to like this movie as much as I did. If you are a fan of the Wolverine or X-Men series, I would say you definitely would want to see this film. It is far different from any of the other films in the series, and trust me that is a great thing. I would rate this film four out of five stars. And I am glad they were able to make it R-rated because I felt that finally Wolverine could be the true badass that he really is.
