Movie Review: Logan

 

It's 2029 and our superhero Mutants are pretty much eradicated fromthe face of the earth. An isolated, despondent Logan (Hugh Jackman) is drinking his days away in a hideout on a remote stretch of the Mexican border, earning small change as a limo driver for hire. His companionsin exile are the outcast Caliban and an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart), whose singular mind is plagued by worsening seizures. 

Logan is caring for his father figure old friend by giving him shots and carrying him over his shoulder to use the bathroom, etc. But Wolverine/Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy abruptly end when a mysterious woman appears with an urgent request--that Logan shepherd an extraordinary young girl (with powers similar to his own) to safety or she'll be killed. This will prove to not be an easy feat as Logan starts facing off against dark forces and a villain from his own past on a live-or-diemission. It appears they've been creating several of these child soldiers with DNA from all our favorite mutant superheroes (looks like they're getting to reboot the franchise again). Now because the girl has Wolverine claw power she is in directly his daughter. 

Hugh Jackman said he wouldn't do another Wolverine movie unless they agreed to make it an "R" rating.  Why? I don't know.  There's no sex in it so the "R" is for ultra violence.  Wonder why he wanted to do that, maybe more action to play as an actor.  But it cuts off the young fans as it's way too violent.
