In 2029 the mutant population has shrunken significantly due to genetically modified plants designed to reduce mutant powers 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 they made her, with Logan's DNA. 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.

I get to see a lot of movies early due to my employment at a mediagroup, whether I like it or not, but I actually had to finagle my wayinto a screening of Logan.
And thank god.
Logan is a film which I consider it a privilege to have seen. When yousee the film, you'll understand. This is a FILM, not a super heromovie.
For years, fans have yearned for an honest to God Wolverine movie, andwe got damn close with Mangold's The Wolverine, a few years prior. Thistime, after Deadpool paved the way for R Rated X-Men films, Fox havefinally gotten out of the way.
Logan is a gnarly, emotional and honest film about Wolverine. HughJackman carries the movie in a minimalist, yet terrifying performance.This movie has everything, yes there is gore and f-bombs, but also astory. James Mangold has taken elements of the acclaimed "Old ManLogan", and had created a masterpiece. I'm not going to spoil anythinghere, but suffice it to say that Logan is now THE definitive comic bookmovie, in my mind, unseating Zack Snyder's Watchmen.
This movie is exactly what I needed it to be and god bless it.
Do yourself a favor and watch this film.

LOGAN - SPOILER FREE REVIEW
As most of you are aware I have not been a huge fan of the latest X- Men outings, but THIS WAS AWESOME!
In a rather bleak entry we see a Post X-Men Logan, something has happened and the mutants no longer exist or there is a few of them out there. Director James Mangold chose to make the film almost colorless with much, much more character development than previous Wolverine and X-Men movies. We see a tired character that no longer belongs in a world that has feared him for over a century.
While Hugh Jackman in his last outing as Logan does an amazing job and proves once and for all why NO ONE ELSE can ever be Wolverine, the supporting cast does a superb job as well starting with Sir Patrick Stuart who returns as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook (Netflix's NARCOS) as an astounding and dangerous antagonist and newcomer Dafne Keen who is a rather sweet but incredibly deadly Weapon X-23.
The movie is filled with gore and violence, but it does not feel forced at all in such an obscure movie. There is a rather new trend in Comic Book Movies after DEADPOOL, make them as brutal as possible, and while this started in the 90s with THE CROW and BLADE it has gained some track and more R Rated CBM are being developed as we speak.
I HIGHLY recommend it.
