Logan is one hell of a ride and a fitting farewell to Hugh Jackman’s historical character Wolverine. I will not take even a single second to say that it is one of the best X-Men movies ever made alongside X-Men: First Class if not the best. The screenplay by Scott Frank, Director James Mangold, and Micheal Green is in itself so desolate which is aptly supported by the brilliant cinematography of John Mathieson makes us feel the pain and emptiness of Logan in every frame. The action is fantastic, of course in the familiar Wolverine style which is gory but stylish and raw. But the best achievement of the film is its emotional quotient and it is also very fresh to see in a Wolverine standalone film especially after the first two dull affairs. The performance of Hugh Jackman is the highlight and he is more Logan and less Jackman as he is playing this role from last 17 years and aged with it so gracefully, in this outing he is 200% committed towards his character both physically and mentally, watch it for him, he is in his element.
It is his film and he deserved this farewell, we have grown watching him donning this role and will miss him as Wolverine in the times to come. Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles is the key of the emotional roller coaster in the film and he is first-rate in his role as always. The little girl Dafne Keen as young Mutant Laura is energetic and apt, Boyd Holbrook as Pierce is menacing. The script is thin on paper but the screenplay is winner all the way not to forget the able direction. It is a fun filled satisfying super hero film which deserves a watch and is a must watch for all the X-Men series lovers. One last time it is your chance to see your favorite mutant Logan. I’ll go with 3.5 stars.
