One of the best movies to come out so far in 2017 has been the movie “Logan” starring Hugh Jackman. It’s the last installment that Jackman will have as the superhero Wolverine, who’s been a part of the X-Men series. There have been a lot of people that were more than pleased with the film, which showed the darker side of the superhero in a future setting where, unfortunately most of the mutants have been killed off.
The movie doesn’t give very detailed explanations about how the rest of the mutants died. There are only a few that the viewer comes into contact with. This could be seen as a downfall of the film, but it could also be said that it adds to the mystery and simplicity of the movie Logan which, instead of focusing on the story of all of the X-Men and the mutants, focuses solely on Logan, Charles, and the new character called X-23, or Laura.
Takeaways from Logan
Warning: spoilers are about to start.
One of the first things to note about Logan is that it is excessively violent. Those that have seen the previous X-Men and Wolverine movies will be somewhat familiar with this, but Logan takes the blood and gore to a whole new level. This all starts with Logan’s initial encounter with the gangbangers at a truck stop, when they are trying to steal his limo that he uses to make money giving rides to people. Needless to say, he takes care of them, and he doesn’t do so gently.
One thing that Logan does well is give the viewers a backstory of what Logan is up to now, how he’s gotten here, and what’s happened to the rest of the mutants. They don’t do in the clearest way possible, but allow the viewer to put the pieces together for themselves by watching Logan as a limo driver and listening in to the radio broadcast after the incident in Vegas. Perhaps this is what draws the viewers in to the struggles of Logan and Xavier, they are invited in to piecing together the pieces of the puzzle on their own.
Xavier and his Seizures
One of the particularly interesting things to note is how Logan needs to give Charles medicine in order for him to function. There is even a brief episode at their hideout in the beginning, where Logan has a seizure and it affects Logan and the other mutant they are hiding. It becomes apparent that there is something severely wrong with Charles Xavier, who was once the head of all the mutants that were fighting for the good guys. From his confusing babbling it becomes apparent that he is also suffering from some form of dementia or a degenerative brain disease, which the antagonists talk about later in the film as well.
X-23 is another important piece of the puzzle. She ends up being the girl that seems to belong to the woman who tries to get in touch with Logan throughout the beginning portions of the film. Before long it becomes clear that there is something special about her. And (spoiler, again) she turns out to be Logan’s daughter.
The End of Wolverine
The most significant takeaway from the film is that Logan comes to his end. He isn’t healing like he used to, and his body is being poisoned by the adamantium that is in him. The film appears to be the end of what has been the longest-running superhero franchise ever. Others, like Spiderman, have jumped around from actor to actor. Hugh Jackman stayed with us as Wolverine, and he will be missed.
