“In the real world, people die.”

Logan, the latest film in the Marvel-Fox X-Men franchise, promised us that it will be rooted in reality. And it lived to its promise. Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart’s swansong X-Men movie is a healthy departure from the usual formulaic superhero movies with crossovers, ensemble team-ups and computer generated rubble.

The setting for a film is the near future, where the world is almost free of Mutant-kind and ever-changing timelines. Wolverine and Professor X are hiding from the world with their mutant powers – a scruffy dystopian world from the outset. Charles Xavier, the magnanimous nonagenarian, is ailing and unstable with a pained Logan to look after him. Logan himself is scarred, grizzled and visibly old with his healing factor nowhere in its prime. Their lives change when a young girl comes amidst them – Laura.

Director James Mangold, who previously has worked with Jackman in the hit movie The Wolverine (2013) – the second movie in the Wolverine ‘trilogy’, had voiced his concern about poorly written superhero plots. With Logan, he perfected what he began in 2013.

This film is the best from its genre since the great The Dark Knight

The movie is meditative and minimalistic – with blood splattered gore whenever required. The movie is R-rated and it doesn’t shy away from showing some clawed awesomeness with Laura and Logan in tandem. Dafne Keen is wonderful as the young Laura, X-23 if you may, – A sweet little girl with serious blood splattering tendencies.  Sir Patrick Stewart brilliantly portrays Professor Charles Xavier with all the rich experience behind him. The rest of the cast – Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce and Richard E. Grant as Zander Rice is straight out of the comic books, with their involvement in the Weapon X program and ambition of controlling the mutant world. Stephen Merchant as Caliban is a sore sight and a reminder of the pain the Mutants endure in this dystopian world. Old Man Logan, comic series from Marvel, reflects beautifully in this movie – the inspiration for James Mangold.

The film is such a fitting finale to the fine actors – Jackman and Stewart, one imagines how it would have been with a certain Sir Ian McKellen’s Magneto in the middle. The fanboy in me is pained to imagine that Hugh Jackman never donned the iconic yellow costume in this Universe. Wolverine will never be the same. The iconic blades should rest now.

The movie ends with a heart wrenching scene for comic book lovers – a tribute to the iconic X-Men.

Logan is running in the theaters. This one is a must-watch.

  1. Yeah! Although there was no confirmation from the producers and film-makers, I was still hoping against hope that Hugh Jackman would don the iconic costume from the comic-book. Still, what we saw in this movie was definitely heart-wrenching and a treat to the viewers’ eyes.

  2. I thought the featuring of the custom-made Xmen comics in the movie was significant in its own way. It was a clever way of showing Logan in his iconic costume. At the same time, it stayed true to what Jackman says in the course of the film, “Maybe a quarter of it happened, but not like this.” So that explained the fact that he wasn’t going to wear the yellow and blue costume in the ‘real’ world as opposed to the exaggerated representation in the comics. This again is reflective of the movie itself, which unlike other superhero movies, is more grounded on reality.

  3. I can’t wait till things get settled and we have
    completed transferring and having the newborn (Sure, Its been quite busy today).
    I actually want to get back into it!

  4. Firms opened by jewelers resembling Carl Fabergé and Louis Comfort

    clay which does have some flex to it when dry.

  6. World famous resorts of Pattaya, Phuket and Koh Samui offer excellent scuba diving facilities as well as other reacreations and entertaiment.

  7. Thirdly we’re running a contest to win one item of jewelry
    from each designer we inventory, that is 17 pieces of jewellery!

  8. Many modern jewellery houses and sellers of different useful collectibles have started using
    metallic and glass or acrylic show boxes.
    The selection of a show jewellery field additionally depends
    upon the sort of item that must be displayed.

  9. Well being Providers: People all the time wish to really feel higher.
    If you are a skilled hairdresser, manicurist or masseuse or are a hold fit enthusiast then you may easily sell these services
