Goodbye, Wolverine: A Review of ‘Logan’

by T. Mack

The film, Logan, is many things. It’s the tenth installment in the X-Men movie franchise. It’s the third Wolverine film within the same set of movies. It’s Hugh Jackman’s last turn as the titular character. And it’s only the second R-rated superhero film in this new Golden Age of Superhero Movies. It’s also an incredibly complex emotional journey for the characters and the audience. It’s a fitting tribute to the character, both from the comics and as he’s been played by Jackman for the last 17 years. You read that right… 17 years! The film is the truest interpretation of the character that’s ever been allowed on the silver screen (due in large part to its R rating). It manages to be a superhero movie while also being a gritty western.The movie is perfectly gory and violent. It is heart-wrenching and tragic. It is a great story, a beautiful work of cinematic art and a downright excellent film.
