Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Dafne Keen
Directed by James Mangold
One last SNIKT! Hugh Jackman reprises his role as the most popular mutant and X-Man of all time for one last rodeo.
Wolverine aka James Howlett aka Logan now lives in a world where mutants are on the brink of extinction. Only few remain in the world and he's now somewhat of an "Uber driver" to earn petty money and support his little family that includes a very old and ailing Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) who is being troubled by worsening seizures.
The story gets interesting when Logan runs into a Spanish woman who recognizes him as The Wolverine. This woman begs Logan to take care of her young daughter Laura (Dafne Keen) and bring her to safety. Laura is being hunted down by dark forces and Logan must fight these forces to save the young girl's life. Professor Xavier had already sensed the young girl and little does Logan know, he and the girl aren't so different from one another. Laura happens to be a mutant who possesses adamantium claws and rapid body healing similar to Logan. The two veteran X-Men set off on a journey to bring the young mutant to safety.
LOGAN brings the debut of Laura Kinney or more popularly known as the mutant X-23. The movie is the best among the three Wolverine movies and is by far the most violent and bloodiest among the three. It's not the best X-Men movie but it does show comic-accurate depictions of the main characters and the story remains Wolverine centric. Director James Mangold has done an awesome "Violent Wolverine" movie and it's probably thanks to DEADPOOL that Twentieth Century Fox decided to go ahead with the R rating for LOGAN. Because of this, Mangold
was able to show the real essence of Wolverine that fans have been clamoring for. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart deserve a lot of praise for portraying their comic book counterparts one last time for all the X-Men fans. The two actors certainly gave performances fans will remember for years to come. The movie may have had some pacing challenges but it was still a fun ride and comic book fans will not be disappointed.
LOGAN is now showing at your favorite cinemas! Be sure to catch it with your favorite Nacho Bimby Champion Combo available in Greenhills Promenade, SM The Block, Eastwood Mall, Venice Grand Canal, and Robinsons Magnolia.
Please note that LOGAN is Rated R-16 because it contains graphic violence, profane language, and mature subject matter.
