It’s only a movie of superb quality that contains elements full of surprises. Nice plot, reasonable scenes and acts, wonderful characterizations, and also human touch, they all play important role in creating a cinema work of magnificent quality. And, I find this quality in the latest Hugh Jackman’s film entitled Logan. During the last 17 years we have been entertained by his role as Wolverine in the X-Men film series. In his nine films of the series, we acquire the fact that Wolverine has lost his ability to love and to be loved after the tragic death of his spouse. He becomes a powerful weapon ever since; a cold-blooded killer who finds nothing between him and his enemies except brutal death. However, such view will be totally altered after watching Logan which was released last March 2017. Said to be his last performance in the X-Men film series, Hugh Jackman will make you burst into tears after acknowledging the feeling of being loved by Laura, a child of similar ability created from Logan’s DNA by Transigen.
The scene is said to take place in 2029, when mutants are now in extinction and no mutants have been born in 25 years. At that time, Logan or Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), who has no longer faith upon his life, is getting weaker due to adamantium poisoning. He has only Caliban (Stephen Merchant) and Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) accompany him. Both maintain his sanity while Logan seeks money for a living for them, working as a limo driver in El Paso, Texas. They have only one purpose: Collect more money to buy ship, starting to live by the sea. But, the coming of Gabriela Lopez has changed the plan. She asks Logan to bring her and Laura (Dafne Keen) to a place named Eden located in North Dakota. They contract becomes more difficult to embark after Gabriela shot to death prior to departure, leaving Laura alone with Logan and his friends. Laura and Logan learn each other in difficult way. The fact that men from Alkali-Transigen under the lead of brutal Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) pursue the company has made Wolverine mad. It’s only Charles who unites both, and provides understanding towards Laura about Logan’s nature. The chase involves X-24 who manages to murder Charles, while Caliban has no more protection to offer to Logan and Laura except detonating grenades in order to wound Donald. The heroic run successfully brings Logan and Laura to the Eden, where Laura’s friends have been waiting for their next escape route to the border. It’s in the border Logan meets his final moment in a loving atmosphere.
This might be the best action and drama movie of the century, ending the role of Wolverine in the X-Men film series. It doesn’t take long time for audience to understand Logan’s recent situation, and accept the weakening Charles Xavier. Dafne Keen soon attracts viewers with her martial skill and superb performance when Donald and his gang ambush the company. Above all, this movie has successfully visualized sweet father and daughter relationship Logan has with Laura at the end of his life after both fight back against Donald and his men at the border. I can say nothing more but suggesting you to see this movie soon. This is the most entertaining and touching X-Men film ever produced.
