It’s finally here, you guys. After seventeen years of gracing our screens as the adamantium-clawed mutant, Hugh Jackman is reprising his role as Wolverine for the last time. Now, I’m 22 y’all, so I don’t really remember a time pre-X-Men movies. Needless to say, I got emotional. (I’m thankful that tear stains can’t bee seen on computer screens.) I’m sure you all know the synopsis, but just in case, here’s my version:
Logan’s many years of life have caught up to him. He’s aging and his ability to heal is failing him. It’s 2029, and the mutant race has all but gone extinct. He and a small few survive – sort of. His goal in life is to take care of Professor Xavier, who has a degenerative brain disease, but his plans get blown to smithereens when a government agency targets him when he makes the impulsive and reluctant decision to aid a little girl named Laura. But Laura is more than she seems, considering she looks like Logan and possesses powers similar to his. What will happen to the trio of mutants when they come under fire?
Dark, gritty, and gruesome, Logan is definitely not a movie you want your womb nuggets to see. That being said, I highly recommend it. To top off this major Marvel film, it has a pre-film short starring Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool! The teaser involving the Merc-With-A-Mouth has a lot of nods to Logan, but the online extended version provides even more entertainment. Unlike most Marvel movies, Logan doesn’t have an end-credits scene – And it’s only right that it doesn’t, considering it’s the end of a legend. This movie was by far the perfect conclusion to an over-decade long legacy, and as such it deserves the best rating I can offer. It gets a perfect 5 out of 5 glasses. Hugh Jackman, I think I speak for all the fans when I say: Thank you for bringing to life one of the most badass Marvel characters to ever exist. As always, thanks for reading!
