Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
Logan is set in post apocalyptic (for the mutants) 2029 with Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) both in ill health and in hiding. While there’s tons of good action this is also a more thoughtful and somber super hero movie than most dealing with issues relevant in today’s society.
Patrick and Jackman give excellent performances with the Professor having seizure/mental issues and Jackman shows different emotions and he still wrestles with his issues of how to handle the destruction he causes and hurting those he cares about. Dafne King also does a great jobs as a young mutant on the run. This probably could have been tightened up a bit to be closer than two hours and while I liked the plot at times it was predictable.
As with Deadpool last year, this is not for kids – tons of bloody violence. But for those who like a good action movie this is worth seeing.
