Summary: “In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
Everyone, take note. This is how you make a superhero movie.
Logan is a great example of why I enjoy the X-Men movies more than anything with the Avengers in it. It focuses on telling you a story and not just “hey look over here at some epic action shots.” That is not what I want to pay to see.
Having the movie rated R was also a great choice, by allowing the movie to feel more real and gritty. Logan is aging and hurting and the world is apparently not that great a place, the cursing and the blood add to the atmosphere of that.
I loved seeing the relationship between Logan and Charles and watching Laura’s character grow. She’s bound to have a spin off, right?!
Logan is an amazing addition to the X-Men franchise and if you’re a fan, it’s going to blow you away. And the ending, ughhhhh!!!
Also, there’s no after credits scene so you don’t have to wait around like I did
