Star Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keef, Richard Grant, and Boyd Holbrook
Director: James Mangold
Producer: Hutch Parker, Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner
Claps for: Performances, Direction and Visual Effects
Slaps for: A bland and serious Marvel flick may not be every fan’s cup of tea
What’s New: Nothing
Popcorn Refill: Interval
Plot: What happens when a famous mutant, who is way past his days and resorts to living alone, meets another one of his kind only to realize that she is his daughter?
Performances: Needless to say, ‘Logan’ belongs to Logan. Hugh Jackman, in his final outing as an X-Men delivers a stunning performance. While the previous standalone movies of Wolverine have seen him play the rugged and angry superhero, this time he brings in a lot more to the table as the old-and-withered Wolverine. He will be missed, and remembered for ages to come as ‘Logan’
And very much like Hugh Jackman, ‘Logan’ bids adieu to professor Charles Xavier too! Patrick Stewart is at his usual best and provides the much-needed humour time and again.
Dafne Keen is a complete delight to watch! She lets her silence speak and walks shoulder to shoulder with Jackman when it comes to the action sequences.
About The Movie: What works for ‘Logan’ is the brilliant and restrained execution of its otherwise typically film and predictable storyline. What the ‘The Dark Knight’ Trilogy is to Batman, ‘Logan’ is to Wolverine. And the credit for this goes to director James Mangold and his team.
Thankfully, there’s zero melodrama when it comes to showcasing the father-daughter relation between Logan and Laura. The scenes where Xavier’s seizures cause everyone around him “temporary paralysis” are worth the watch.
Having said that, a rather serious and bland approach to the film might also disappoint the usual Marvel fans.
Combo-On-Offer: Superhero Drama
Verdict: We give Logan THUNDEROUS CLAPS for being the perfect farewell to Hugh Jackman.
