It’s 2029. The mutants are gone. Logan and Charles Xavier are living in hiding in Mexico, struggling to survive while their powers become increasingly unreliable and dangerous.
Logan is a different kind of superhero movie to the type we have become accustomed to; there are no epic space battles, no teams of brashly coloured men and women in tights flying around shooting lightning bolts or tossing cars around like they are toys while making quips; for the most part, it’s a battered and bruised old man desperately fighting for his life. The “R” rating means that finally the Wolverine character can be portrayed as was meant to be which means darkness, cynicism and bloody, brutal violence. Rather than an operatic spectacle the story concentrates upon the characters as Logan must …

LOGAN, James Mangold's brooding and somber conclusion to Hugh Jackman's signature role, has been hailed as one of the very best superhero films since The Dark Knight, The Avengers, and so forth.
To call LOGAN overpraised is the understatement of the year. Aside from being overly long (sick of this in superhero movies) the film is overly grim and dour for its own good. Granted, there's backstory explaining the dire straits that Wolverine and Professor Xavier find themselves in, it's relentless and even the action feels more obligatory than exciting.
Basically the plot involves just two of the original cast. Wolverine is a burnt out limo driver while Professor X is slowly going crazy It's set in the future and they're in hiding while the XMEN are mostly long dead but memorialized in …

What do you do with a story line that's getting old and repetitive? One good solution is to experiment with dropping it into a whole different genre. Logan does exactly this, blending the superhero with the western. The film's acknowledgement to George Steven's Shane couldn't be more explicit. James Mangold takes a well worn superhero and refits him for the role of the classic reluctant hero, a staple of the American western. "Logan" is set in a arid, western landscape that's wide open and a perfect setting for the long distance George Miller style chase that structures the film. In place of outlaws, we have a predatory corporation, bristling with well armed mercenaries. These villains are pursuing and trying to destroy the hybridized mutant kids that will clearly be X-men …

I went to see the movie knowing that I would be dealing with nudity extreme language and violence however I have to say that I personally loved the movie yes Logan is a bad example of a hero but he gets the job done in the end of the story I found it to be amazing to see the action and suspence I loved it the young girl playing his sidekick was amazing to see as well it's a good time at the movies but I don't recommend that you take the family due to constant swearing and brief nude scene constant violence and drinking but if it can take the content of the movie then you should totally go see it you will not regret doing so it is a good escape from the real world for awhile and going to the X world pure fun and enjoyable just as I mentioned before no kids

"This is what life looks like. People who love each other. A home. You should take a moment... Feel it".
It's very rare that a X-men (or any superhero movie), could be the hardest thing I've ever progress in terms of my thoughts and feelings. Much hard when writing about it. Heck, I wouldn't even call it a superhero movie, but a mixture of both western and drama in disguise. No one is safe and the stakes are higher than before. While the villains themselves aren't anything I would call "great", but they did felt like a real threat and wasn't too cliché to the story.
"Logan" is one of the best non superhero movies I've seen in awhile. A sad but satisfying farewell to are fan favorite. A surprising character driven movie with real consequences. A bold and risky film that …

It's hard to believe is has been 17 years since a relatively unknown Australian actor, better known for his musical acumen than anything else, was cast as one of the most iconic X-Men Mutants, a move that jump-started his Hollywood career with a role that became as iconic as the character from the comic book.
Hugh Jackman is Wolverine and, after 17 years, he has retired his character. Logan is not just a great sendoff for the actor and the character, it's one of the best examples of the superhero genre. While The Avengers and their MCU uses snark and charm to balance out the action and Deadpool was an R-rated comedic treat, Logan is a much different beast. Unlike Man of Steel, Batman v Superman or even The Dark Knight - the darkness in Logan suits the characters and isn't brooding …
