Logan Review: A well deserved tribute to wolverine

Logan hit the cinemas on the 3rd of march and is still showing.. When Wolverine first appears in Logan, he is looking old and tired. His claws get stuck between his knuckles and have lost their swift responsiveness. He’s suicidal {as he keeps a bullet made of Adamantium )and he’s drinking too much, even for him. Guys he normally would have taken out with a quickness can get him on his back. He looks like shit—and because this is R-rated Wolverine, he can say so.

Yes, everything you’ve heard is true. That rage-filled, bloody, drunk, foul-mouthed Logan who never got to fully surface in the previous X-Men movies is finally joining his buddy Deadpool in the world of grown-up cinema. And this actually  a  swell way for him to end his run.

Logan is, for serious this time, Hugh Jackman’s last turn as Wolverine. All told, he’s donned the claws nine times. It’s time for him to move on. Not that people don’t love him or the character (though the solo movies haven’t been as well-loved as the ensemble flicks), there’s just something to be said for X-ing yourself out while you’re on top—and Logan is the character at his peak: slightly broken, angry, and still in possession of just enough heart to make him insanely sympathetic. If he wasn’t a mutant in a comic-book movie, he’d be downright relatable.

The Logan Movie Wolverine Deserves

Wolverine has always been a fan favorite. You don’t get three stand alone movies if you’re not. But despite his hallowed status—and despite Hugh Jackman’s dedication to the character—Wolverine always felt like the sole grown-up stuck on Xavier’s Island of Misfit Heroes. He’s a lone wolf, not a wide-eyed mutant struggling with outsider status. As Old Man Logan in Logan, he finally gets to be the salty dog everyone always suspected he was.

Hugh Jackman spent years making the character his own, but he always felt like the sole grown-up stuck on Xavier’s Island of Misfit Heroes. He’s a lone wolf, not a wide-eyed mutant struggling with outsider status.

Of course, just because Logan shows Wolverine in all his grizzled glory doesn’t mean he stays free of other mutants’ drama. This time, it’s daddy issues. By the year 2029, Logan has sequestered himself away in Mexico, driving a limo to make money while taking care of an ailing, seizure-prone Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart). He’d happily stay off the grid forever (he’s saving up for a boat), but soon a young girl named Laura (Dafne Keen) shows up wielding some very familiar-looking adamantium claws. She, along with scores of other children, were created by  a nefarious research firm to be child soldiers. They escaped, and are heading to Canada to seek—but Laura got separated from her brood and is being tracked by the doctor who made her. She needs Logan’s help.
