#Movie Review @kenny.hayden
I guess there's no need for an introduction to this movie here. As you all know this will be the last outing for #HughJackman & #PatrickStewart. After 16 years they've decided to leave the franchise and in turn giving us one of the #bestmovies of all time
That's right this is not just a normal X-Men or a #superhero movie. This is sheer brilliance of being just #jamesmangold best rather than being a part of #XMen franchise.
It's 2029 where #mutants are almost extinct. #Logan is suffering from #adamantium poisoning due to his advanced age-line. He along with #Caliban takes care of Professor X who's having a neurodegenerative disease and senility & hence sometimes losing control over his #telepathic abilities. His plan to hide from the outside world gets upended when he meets a young mutant who is very much like him. He must now protect the girl and battle the dark forces that want to capture her.
From the day I had heard that Logan's gonna be #R-Rated I've dreamed that this will be one of the best movies of all time. It broke all typical formulaic structure of every superhero movie we watch every year.
Mangold himself wrote the story after taking #inspiration from a #graphic novel #OldManLogan .He considers his movie as a #Western than a superhero flick and has criticized modern superhero movie ideas. You guys may sometimes wonder about movie length, but remember this flick takes its time of dwelling us into their world of #pain and #aftermath which is rare in a superhero #genre.
There's violence of course and foul language as every R-Rated one. To me it felt that the characters can finally stretch their legs (Not the Professor 😂) for development and depth in them. Mangold has managed to keep everything in balance & engaging. The performances ? well, Hugh's portrayal will be something that I'll say one of his best in his career. Stewart as #ProfX, though considered decent in character, pulls all his sorrow of 17 years in one take. Every blow they take, every step they run, you can feel it. #DafneKeen as #X23 is spectacular.A #talent to be noted. Overall Logan has changed the face of #superheromovies. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 9.2/10
