LOGAN – movie review
Genre: Action Recommended: Parental Guidance Released: 3 March 2017
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen
Directed by: James Mangold
Supposedly the finale of the Wolverine franchise, Logan itself is an offshoot of the X-Men series.
The makers of this series have carefully crafted the character to highlight the human side and named it Logan rather then his larger than life superhero the Wolverine as he is also show anything but a superhero.
The story is set in the year 2029 the special school and all the X-Men are gone, with no more new mutants on the block.
An aging and haggard Logan is taking care of the nonagenarian Professor Xavier who himself is senile and on tablets to prevent him from going crazy, as if this was not bad enough enters the young daughter of Logan created from his genes and surrogacy of a Mexican mom with much of his abilities and more and thus disrupting the uneasy yet cozy arrangement.
This child and many like her drawn from genes of various mutants and the surrogacy were being nurtured and bred in a MEXICAN LAB to turn them into weapons, but things back fired and the children escaped from the facility to search for their Paradise.
During the road trip to save these children the rude and aloof Logan slowly but with a lot of tussle between him and his cub comes to terms of having daughter under the calming influence of the professor, they even portray as one happy dysfunctional family.
There is no sci fi or razz and jazz of the previous X-men movies, a very down to earth film with a chapter for emotional bonding with your kid, but unfortunately so gory that it got an A certificate, the heads literally rolled.
Too lengthy, and it could have been more crispy though Jackman is in good form with his portrayal of the disturbed ageing hero with a deathwish
