🔹AMAZING CINEMA # 105
🔹LOGAN (USA/English/2017/Superhero Thriller/Dir: James Mangold/Starring: Hugh Jackman, Dafne Keen, Patrick Stewart)
🔹 Everything in this world must have an end. Whether it is Man or God , Human or Super Human , Good or Bad it must end in some day.
🔹 SYNOPSIS 🔹
🔹 Marvel Studios is well known for their own superhero characters. Ironman, Spiderman , Doctor Strange , Antman , Hulk, Thor , Captain America and so on. You can’t completely count their superheros even using both of your hands. Among them one single name stands for some special superheros/superheroines. That name is none other than the famous X MEN . The first X Men movie released in the year of 2000 and there are 10 films released till now including the latest outing LOGAN. Many of you knew the titular characters in the X Men series like Professor X, Magneto , Raven , Cyclops and The Wolverine/Logan who is the most famous X Men character .Hugh Jackman played the role of Wolverine for 17 years in X Men Series. Because of the popularity of this character three X Men spin off films ate made namely X Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), The Wolverine (2013) and Logan (2017).
🔹If you have watched the first two Wolverine films you know the background of the character. The story of LOGAN happens on a dystopian future and the movie has only two characters ; Logan and Professor X from the previous X Men films .Both of them are very aged and at a crucial stage of their life. Professor X loses the control over his powers and Logan is losing his self regenerating power. Logan is thinking that the era of Mutants has ended and he lost all hope about his future. But one day a little girl mutant named Laura (Dafne Keen) came to his life and fate is dragging him in to unpredictable circumstances.
🔹As I first told in the introduction every legend must end in one day but they must definitely leave some trace of them behind. That trace is the real energy and power of this film which will astonish viewers to the levels they didn’t expect. I am talking about none other than the cute and dangerous X Child Laura , the role brilliantly portrayed by newcomer Dafne Keen . You will definitely love Laura and her rage, her power , her smile , her grief and her naughtiness will surely mesmerize you . You know the power of Logan very well but you don’t know the power of Laura. Expect the unexpected in the theatres.
🔹LOGAN is very different from all the 9 previous X Men films . This film has a very strong emotional background and it is bloody realistic in action sequences which is very rare for movies of this genre. The movie has strong content of violence and not recommended for people who will back off their face when seeing violence in movies. But this film will definitely be a treat for all X Men film lovers which has some fantastic performances and breathtaking action sequences. Hugh Jackman is at his best and he delivered a fantastic performance. Hats off to the director James Mangold for giving us a most wonderful and unforgettable experience in theatre and concluding the legend of Logan in the most appreciable way.
🔹Rating : 4/5 ( An Edge of the seat Emotional and Violent Thriller )
NB: Don’t go to watch this film expecting an Ironman or Spiderman or even previous X Men films. This one entirely different .
