Here is the premise: Set years later in the X-Men world, where mutants are not welcome; a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out 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.

 Logan is dang near flawless, it has everything you would want in a post heroic X-Men movie, Director James Mangold does to the comic book world what Clint Eastwood did in the western genre with the movie Unforgiven. Instead of an aging gunfighter regretting his life, we see Logan pondering his choices and actions. Mangold does a great job capturing the true persona of Logan and Professor X.

The acting in Logan is superb, with Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart giving the performance of their careers; and OMG, young Dafne Keen, who plays the new mutant, is just plain awesome!!!! The character development is also fantastic, seeing how Logan changes and grows from the start is very fascinating. Mangold gives the fans everything they want in this installment, it’s emotional, fun, funny, and has great action scenes. If you are a fan of X-Men at all, then you need to see Logan.  One very important thing to know before you go; this movie is rated R, lot of language and violence, leave the kiddos at home for this one.
