Logan (2017): Movie Review


Jim Pagiamtzis Review:

“ I have been a woliverne fan a very long time, from my early days as young kid reading his chronicles in marvel comics books. His epic battles with the Hulk in his first appearance in The Incredible Hulk #181 to his epics  battles with Spiderman.

When he came to the silver screen in 2000 and The X-Men, Hugh Jackman seemed like the perfect choice, he carried Wolverine in his journey that took him to X-Men movies and then his own series.
Logan brings to the end his story. Professor X  has come across for the ride with newcomer Dafne Keen (X-23) who plays a pivotal role that gives this movie a different feel from the previous movies. Directed by James Mangold delivers a story with marvel flavor and with action that cuts deep to the bone. Intense at times even for adults.

The movie storyline is simple but takes time for it to grow through to the climatic end which is ending is powerful and fitting way.

Stan Lee had no appearance in the film (sorry for spoiler) Here is why read more

Snikt! Snikit! Wolvie has come to and end. I will always be a fan!"
Story plot:
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

Sujit Reddy  Review
 "LOGAN - GOOD: The fight scenes were good 
BAD: The common movie fan needed a 2 minute scene at the beginning showing what happened to all the mutants; perhaps in a fight scene with Logan in his yellow costume so fans can see him on the big screen at least one time.
 UGLY: At the end there was no Alpha Flight or New Mutant team properly announced from the squad of young children that escaped from the bad guys"

extended plot
In 2029, the mutant population has shrunk significantly and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur. He takes care of the ailing old Professor X whom he keeps hidden away. One day, a female stranger asks Logan to drive a girl named Laura to the Canadian border. At first he refuses, but the Professor has been waiting for a long time for her to appear. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine.
She is pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation; this is because her DNA contains the secret that connects her to Logan. A relentless pursuit begins … In this third cinematic outing featuring the Marvel comic book character Wolverine we see the superheroes beset by everyday problems. They are ageing, ailing and struggling to survive financially. A decrepit Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use. It would appear that in the near-future, the times in which they were able put the world to rights with razor sharp claws and telepathic powers are now over.
