SPOILER ALERT AT THE END (I’ll put borders between the spoilers so you can skip them)
Soo, as you all may know, I am a huge Marvel fan, and when I saw the trailer for Logan I was excited from the first second!
Summary: It’s 2029, and mutants are now almost extinct. The X-men no longer exist and Logan (Hugh Jackman) takes care of Charles (Patrick Stewart), who lives hidden across the Mexican border. Other than that, he spends his days chauffeuring and drinking. When one day, a Mexican woman asks him to take her daughter Laura to the Canadian border, Logan denies the request at first. However, the Professor tells him he has been waiting for her for a long time. She has powers, much like the ones Wolverine has. This is because of a sick experiment in a hospital. They messed with DNA and created mutants. With Charles and Laura, Logan sets off, while wondering if this is really all worth it.

While this is another superhero movie, it’s also shown the everyday life: struggles with aging and money. Logan is definitely a lot older than the last movie, and while that’s of course obvious, it seemed weird seeing him so.. weak sometimes. The storyline is amazing though, and at first I was a bit confused, but after a few minutes, I got to enjoy the fun that is Marvel movies.
Logan, who made his appearance as Wolverine a lot of times, has weakened a lot and is surrounded by alcohol. His ability to heal infinitely does still work(just not as well as usually), but that doesn’t mean he’s not aging like any other person would do. Once so invincible, and now almost living a regularly human life, he really has been brought down.
Charles Xavier, also known as the Professor, is a lot worse. He’s dying -and he knows it, but besides that, he has attacks, deadly for mutants and non-mutants (making him the most powerful weapon alive), and needs medicines. A lot of them. However, since everyone believes he’s been dead for years, Logan is the only one who can get them and bring them over.
Laura is a little girl, however, really stong. She has powers like Logan, metal claws coming out of her hands -and toes. She is a troubled girl, who thinks fighting is the way to solve everything. Logan has to teach her that’s not the way life works sometimes. She is to be brought to “Eden”, a safe place at the Canadian border.
Meanwhile, the “bad guys” are after them, not only for the Professor, but also for Laura and Logan.
This movie was everything, the way Logan, Laura and Charles travel and work together was amazing. The character development of Laura and Logan was really well done, especially towards the end of the movie. What I also liked a lot was how this was one of the movies where fighting and the “end of the world” but more personal and daily life. This helps with showing Logan’s feelings.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!
When Charles died, it was quite emotional, he’s been like a father for Logan ever since the beginning, and it must be really hard to bury him. I like how Laura tried to comfort Logan when they were standing at his grave, but Logan just had to get it out like you’d expect: a lot of anger.
The saddest part was, of course, the ending. I know Hugh Jackman said this was the last time he’d ever play Wolverine again (source), but I didn’t exactly expect it to end like this. While accepting his own death, Laura suddenly realized what that meant for her. The only father figure in her life, the only one like her, is dying and she’s got to go her own way from then on. It was really emotional, not only because of what happened in the movie (Logan giving his life to save his “daughter”), but also because I knew it was really over for Wolverine, and the X-men in general.
THAT’S ALL, CONTINUE READING BELOW!!!!
I’m not sure whether it would happen, but it’d be really awesome if they went on with Laura, since she is in fact a mutant. She and the other kids could make a few awesome new movies in the MCU!
