Movie Review: Logan

Movie Review: Logan

By Akash Rajan

Logan has a very different story as it shows that it was set in 2029, the time when mutants were on the verge of extinction. Sir Patrick Stewart is playing a role of Charles Xavier and Hugh Jackman is playing the role of Logan. The story shows that the school of Charles Xavier does not exist anymore. He and Logan lead an austere life hiding near the Mexican border as they don’t want to get into life and death situation. As we all know, Hugh Jackman has played the most popular characters in the X-Men franchise and now after seventeen years he is playing a role of wolverine or Logan and he is seen with his hunky shoulders in the upcoming movie, Logan. Logan is the third as well as the last installment in the solo Wolverine series.

If you are expecting to see the X-Men I all his glory then you are wrong as the character has been aged and had been through fires. We feel sorry for the two characters after seeing their state as Xavier has got declining mental and physical health and the ageing body of Logan. Logan drives limousine and earns his living and also drinks and gets into fights while Xavier has a disintegrating mind that helps him stay sedated in order to keep his colossal psychic power under control.

Dafne Keen is playing the role of Debutant Laura Kinney/ X-23 at the age of 11. She is definitely going to give a very big competition to the other actresses who are of her age. She has skills as well as claws just similar to Logan. She gets hunted down by a group of merciless troublemakers. These troublemakers are led by Donald Pierce, a role played by Boyd Holbrook. But unwillingly, Logan and Xavier become a part of the plan to save her. This movie also has glory scenes and also a plenty of bloodshed is seen because of the claws that Logan has. But what shines throughout the movie are the emotional moments between the lead characters. These all characteristics make it the most moving film of the franchise so far.
