Set in the future, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation led by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan's healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier's Alzheimer's forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.
Action Drama Sci-Fi - Unlike the other previous films featuring the Wolverine character,
whether solo or with the X-Men, this is a much darker, violent, and
dramatic film. Fans of Hugh Jackman will enjoy what is a big
dramatic showcase in addition to an action one, and X-Men
series fans will savor the presence of returning co-star Patrick
Stewart. While more of a drama than any X-Men or other
superhero film, there is still a lot of action, and the violence is
far more graphic and bloody here and the language more rough, so this
is definitely not for kids.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 22 S-words; 2 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Fleeting non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Brutal bloody fights, shootings, killings, often involving a young girl. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Very frequent alcohol. ACTION: Fights and chases. COMEDY: Darkly comic lines and situations.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good ...Logan demands to be given consideration as a "serious” movie. More than any other comic book character outside of Nolan's Batman, Wolverine has evolved. With his glimpse into what superhero movies can be, James Mangold has given us something sadly lacking in recent genre entries: hope.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good "Logan” is the rare blockbuster that could be a game-changer. It will certainly change the way we look at other superhero movies... In that sense, "Logan" deconstructs the modern superhero movie. It will be hard to put it back together again.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good Easily the best Wolverine outing, Logan is The Dark Knight of the mutant-filled X-franchise, a gripping film that transcends the comic-book genre by saying something important — and for Logan, that means coming to grips with needing loved ones in his life.
NY PostFull Review Very Good "Logan" suggests an escape from escapism, a restoration of the human element in blockbusters, a stripped-down return to the feel of 1970s Clint Eastwood pictures. ...it's a captivating throwback that promises to lead the genre away from sci-fi flash and trickery.
