PLOT: The movie takes place in 2029 where the mutant population has shrunk significantly. Mutants are nearly extinct, water is scarce and the world is a wasteland. This is where we find Logan, whose power of self-healing is declining. He surrendered himself to alcohol and now is a limo-driving caretaker of Professor Xavier, who is now suffering from dementia and seizures. He lives a quiet life until he meets a young girl named Laura, whom he feels that he must protect. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess like Wolverine and her DNA contains the secret that connects her to Logan.
REVIEW: "Logan" is the final movie where Hugh Jackman illustrated the exemplary character of Wolverine. Arguably, this was the best Wolverine movie and possibly the best X-Men movie till now, and also Hugh Jackman's best performance as Wolverine. The confidence from Hugh Jackman in this movie was just spot on, which added layers to this movie. The little girl Dafne Keen, who played the role of X-23, was remarkable. This was a movie that gave the audience action to its fullest degree while providing an uncompromising emotional journey.
The writing was solid for a superhero movie, it dug deep into these beloved characters, and showed how vulnerable they are and how they live in a world where people won't accept them. Visually this movie was beautiful as the cinematography was amazing. The screenplay by Scott Frank and Michael Green was amazing. The final scene in the movie was one of the most powerful scenes. Overall, this movie was an absolutely amazing experience that allowed varieties of emotions to be felt all throughout. The action fit in nicely and will grab anyone's attention until the end. All in all, "Logan" is a must-watch movie, which smoothly delivered a grand and tragic story.
