Logan - Perfect Send-off to the most favourite of all the X-Men
Director: James Mangold; Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen.
Logan stands out among the other superhero movies as a film which is brutal, savage, bloody and most importantly emotional and moving. The kind of movie we wanted to see in a long a time amongst the usual comic, entertaining, CG-heavy action sequences filled superhero films.
The kid Dafne Keen as Laura is a child prodigy and could well be the perfect one to take the series forward! She was a standout in both action and emotional sequences. Patrick Stewart was a complete surprise in this film. All we could see was Charles Xavier and not Professor X with both subtle and expressive reactions throughout the film.
Hugh Jackman - Probably his best performance till date (Les Miserables, was his best till this movie came out). As a reluctant in the film, he absolutely nails his role. He is not the usual Wolverine we have seen in the past decade and a half.
He is not as powerful as before. He is weak and old. He has given his heart and soul in making his last Wolverine film the most memorable one in the entire series. He will be dearly missed as Wolverine/Logan!!!
Marvel's wise decision to accept James Mangold and Hugh Jackman's proposal for an R-Rated film pays off well. The best part is the Indian Censors has passed the film with an A certification, without any (considerable) cuts (because the running time is almost the same in India and US, so hopefully there weren't any cuts).
A Fitting Finale to Hugh Jackman as an X-Men!!! Thank you for entertaining us for the past 17 years as Wolverwine and an even bigger Thanks for this film LOGAN
Do yourself a favour and book tickets for this movie. You will not be disappointed, rather will be completely engrossed and moved by this film.
