Review: ‘Logan’- A masterful send off to Hugh Jackman in his iconic role

Hugh Jackman takes his final bow as the iconic Wolverine in Logan, a thoughtful tale of redemption and regret thru the eyes of the only man to ever play the role. Director James Mangold (The Wolverine) returns to bring the final act to a close opting for a more dramatic tone than full on action film like previous films in the X-Men franchise. Logan is the perfect send off to both actor and character and a love letter to all who have endured the good and the very bad of this characters cinematic arc. The long journey of the Wolverine concludes.

Tired and weary, Logan (Hugh Jackman) finds himself among the last mutants standing in a world that’s long forgotten his kind. Opting to blend in to society and live out his days, Logan keeps to a quiet life, driving a limo and acting as a caretaker for friend and mentor Charles Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart) for whom age has taken a huge toll. He is aided in this task by Caliban (Stephen Merchant), a mutant who can sense and track other mutants, but is running from a past he would soon forget.

Logan is approached by a young Mexican nurse looking for the Wolverine to help her protect her daughter Laura (Dafne Keen from a secret experiment called Transigen. Pierce (Boyd Holbrook), is the leader of the Reavers, a team set to find escaped patients from the Transgien project who have set their sights on finding Laura at all costs. Reluctant and unwilling to upend his life, Logan opts to decline the offer until he becomes faced with the stark reality that helping this young girl get to her destination is more vital than he anticipated. Aided by Charles Xavier, the three set their sights on North Dakota and “Eden”, a safe haven for mutants, but Transigen has plans of its own to unleash a new and improved version of their experiments that will test the aging Logan to his limits and beyond.

Seventeen years is a long time for anyone to play the same role, but Hugh Jackman has cherished his experience and has been so caring of the character that seeing him for the last time feels like a family member moving across the globe. Jackman pours his heart and soul into this movie and turns in the best performance of his X-Men career. Patrick Stewart is equally as outstanding as the aging Charles Xavier. The relationship between the two characters has grown from a student to teacher to father to son and the two actors chemistry is cemented into these performances. Newcomer Dafne Keen is brilliant in her first starring role and acts as the catalyst to the emotional journey that Logan embarks on in this film. To watch her rage from an outsiders view allows Logan to see himself and offers a rare opportunity to help steer this child down a different path than him. Their onscreen relationship is a beautiful nod to the pull that Logan has from the animal he’s become and the life he so sorely wishes never eluded him.

Overall, Logan is an outstanding film and a must see for all X-Men lovers and film lovers alike. It’s an emotional journey for both audience and actor and one we won’t soon forget. Thank you Hugh for your Wolverine, there will never be another who could match yours.
