Filled with brutal but intense action scenes, Logan is a must-watch not only for fans looking for a satisfying conclusion to the X-Men series, but also audience who needs a good action flick.

Logan expands on the X-Men timeline, where it has been years that no new mutants have been found. Logan and Professor Charles Xavier live at a deserted area, with Caliban attending to the ailing Professor X. All is well until a woman named Gabriela approaches Logan for help, to send her and a young girl, Laura to North Dakota, where they can seek refuge. Logan who wishes no more than to stay away from trouble, unwillingly takes on the job for money. He soon came to realise Laura’s background and that she has the same mutant abilities as him.

The Good
Rated M18 for violence and coarse language, Logan must be commended for its intense and thrilling actions. With Wolverine losing his absurdly strong power and having slower regenerative ability, the fights came across as more realistic and less one-sided. Any action-lover will surely enjoy these scenes, although notably brutal and grotesque.

Even though the focus of this film is on Logan, Laura the mini Wolverine also stands out as much, in a good way. Portrayed by Dafne Keen, Laura or otherwise known as X-23 puts up a good fight against the antagonists. If not for her being a child and relatively less experienced, Laura might very well overpower Logan. With very few dialogs, Keen relies on body movements and facial expressions to bring out the pain and the sense of helplessness of the character.

Running at 137 minutes, the film may feel a tad bit long. But at least the plot nicely wraps up the story of Logan in one instalment; not split into parts. It gives a satisfying conclusion to the X-Men series and a subtle introduction to the future of mutants. The film also throws light on the emotional struggles Logan goes through in his life, showing what semblance of a family Laura has brought to his life — something he does not have, or does not dare to have, for "bad things always happen to the people he cares about".

The (Not That) Bad
Nothing at the end of the credits, which means the continuation of the mutants universe is unknown, although sources have mentioned that Laura may be appearing in the Deadpool series. It would be great to have a movie with Laura in it, given her Wolvy abilities and potential to develop as a character.

And The Summary
Filled with brutal but intense action scenes, Logan is a must-watch not only for fans looking for a satisfying conclusion to the X-Men series, but also audience who needs a good action flick.
