LOGAN is the final saga for Wolverine and his storied XMen history.
Set in the year 2029, most of the mutant population is virtually nonexistent. Here you will find an exiled isolated and despondent Logan (Hugh Jackman) in a seedy motel close to the Mexican Border.
During this period, Logan is caring for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) with outcast Caliban (Stephan Merchant). To make ends meet, he is reduced to picking up petty cash as a driver for hire. His isolation is shattered by a mysterious woman (Elizabeth Rodriguez) who requests his help to take a little girl, Laura (newcomer Dafne Keen) to safety.
Facing a suicide mission and a past villain Pierce (Boyd Holbrook), all bets are off as claws are drawn and blood is spilled. You will experience a roller coaster of emotions through a rarely seen side of Logan. The tough love between him and Professor X are continued (as played out in other XMen movies) on a grumpy, mature level. But the prize drawn is between Logan and Laura. Although a little slow to evolve, their chemistry is explosive.
Now, without giving away any spoilers, you will not see the plot twist coming. And there are several plot twists that all come together at the end. Logan has it all: laughter, tears (yes as in boo-hoo tears) and great fight gory scenes that one can expect from only Wolverine.
BOTTOM LINE: LOGAN is a well-written script, executed with crisp action and reliable characters. The complexity of storylines involving Logan, Laura and their fates are woven perfectly. As an XMen/ Marvel Comic fan (a little bit bias, Wolverine is my favorite), the movie doesn’t disappoint.
LOGAN opens everywhere March 3rd.
