Movie Review: Logan

Mar 18, 2017

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.



Logan obliterated me! By far the best super hero film I've ever seen. It hit all the right notes and left me reeling from heartache. The futuristic tale of Wolverine's life, caring for an ailing Xavier, working as a chauffeur, and trying to endure what seems to be an illness, plays out in a bold way. Enter one little girl, who happens to be a mutant, and all hell breaks loose. Electrifying fight scenes drive home the intensity of this film not to mention the gore level. James Mangold and Scott Frank did an amazing job of keeping things fresh and surprising. On one or more occasions I was brought to tears. There is so much more to tell, but I don't want to go into detail. Some things need to be experienced as they happen to you and this film will take you places. A must see film!!!

If you are interested in learning more about the inspiration for Logan you must grab the graphic novel Old Man Logan, by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven.

Okay, I just have to say that my new super villain crush has to be on Boyd Holbrook as Pierce. Hot,
hot, hot! If you are a fellow Narcos fan then you know who his is. It seems he bulked up for the role and it took him from cute to hawtie! Not to mention that drawl! Le sigh!
