Logan Review


Ashton T. Livingston, Entertainment editor

This is what life looks like: people love each other. You should take a moment…and feel it.” Logan is the emotional last film starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. This film hits every point it should. It has extreme violence that will wow you and astound you. Within the first minute of this movie you realize this movie is a hard R. The use of the F-bomb is used several times, (somewhere around 50 times) blood and gore are something that this movie loves.

The characters in this movie for mutants are extremely human. Flaws are prevalent in our heroes and you can really feel what they are going through. Laura is just awesome! The daughter of wolverine is just as cool as our main lead and just as ruthless Charles in this film has a severe brain degenerative disease that causes seizures. In the scenes that these seizures happen it’s extremely intense! One scene in particular is very violent and kept me on the edge of my seat. The villains of this film are pretty cool. The reavers (a group of cyborgs that hunt down mutants) have cool effects attached to them.

The action sequences are amazing. The violence of this film is deadpool but turned to a 10. The fight sequences constantly elevate with each swing of the claws. Each fight feels more and more real and you can truly feel the impact of each hit. This film definitely brings something new to the table.



The death of Logan. The scene in which our lead is impaled onto a log and Laura goes to his side while he’s dying and takes his hand.Several audience members, including myself, began to cry. Hugh Jackman, the man who had been wolverine for 17 years, finally decides to let this character go. The last scene in this film in which Laura quotes the last scene from the film Shane and then places his cross as an X shows us who this character truly was a hero.
