"Logan” is a perfect ending to one of the most iconic figures in Marvel cinematic history. Not only is it the final film in the Wolverine stand-alone trilogy, but also Hugh Jackman’s final time playing the character because of his age and his skin cancer.

Based on Mark Millar’s graphic novel “Old Man Logan,” the movie is set in a dark version of the future where almost all mutants have been killed. Those who are alive are barely hanging on.

Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) is one of those mutants, because he is slowly going mad with a brain disease, which could be compared to Alzheimer’s, which had killed most of his X-Men students.

Aside from that, Logan’s healing factor is starting to wear off. Logan and the Professor think they are
the last mutants alive, until the two meet Laura. Laura is a young girl who has similar powers to Logan. She needs to get to a mutant amnes
ty near the Canadian border after a scientist who is creating mutants, but as killing machines. escaping from the evil Dr. Rice,

This is a big step from the original Wolverine movies, since most of the films were rated PG-13. After the success of last year’s box office hit “Deadpool” (along with some Hugh Jackman jokes) Fox decided to give this movie an R rating, due to the increased action, blood and violence sequences.

"Logan could be compared to a dark

family road trip movie."

Despite the action, blood and a large amount of profanity, “Logan” could be compared to a dark family road trip movie. Wolverine and Professor X are trying to help a little girl to a safe home, while avoiding a robotic-armed maniac and his evil group of henchmen.

It is fitting that after this movie, both Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman are retiring from the X-Men franchise. It is the best
way to go out for both fan favorite characters. But just an elder sibling warning: don’t bring the young ones to this Marvel Movie.
