Chris Stuckmann reviews Logan, starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen. Directed by James Mangold.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Hugh Jackman takes center stage, once again without his X-Men co-stars by his side, as he reprises the role of the immortal hero Logan in The Wolverine. Director James Mangold breathes new life into Wolverine saga, as he adds a rich storyline, introduces characters unknown to the X-Men universe that are played by unknown actors, and does his best to avoid producing another generic superhero-action film.
