Logan – 2017

IMDB: Logan – 2017

IMDB Rating: 8.1/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 93%

The final story (in this particular canon arc of the MCU) of Wolverine, Logan. One of the best known of the X-Men. One of their soldiers who has been willing to sacrifice everything so many times for everyone else, and yet has remained his own man.

This movie takes place well into our own future, self-driving interstate trucks, greater technology, greater violence. When both Logan and Professor X are both well beyond their prime, and suffering the problems that occur within the elderly. Professor X is suffering from a degenerative mental disorder that causes everyone nearby to suffer, and Logan, just isn’t healing much anymore and is much slower and less powerful.

Logan gets hired to save and take a girl to a place called Eden, unfortunately Eden is only known and written about in the comics (I just cannot tell if usage in this way is breaking the 4th wall). But as he begins to find out more of the girl he finds that, like him, she is a regenerative mutant that has been adapted for hand to hand combat.

This I feel is a nice closure to both Hugh Jackman as Wolverine’s story.
