In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

This is not a superhero movie. I’m going to put that out there.  Don’t expect to walk out of this theater feeling happy or however, you normally feel after watching a superhero movie. You’re going to cry, so bring some tissues if you’re the crying type. This is a movie where you see two of your favorite characters, the two characters that carried the X-Men franchise, broken down. You see Logan and Charles the two strongest characters in X-Men, brought down so low, that you never thought that it was possible and it’s heartbreaking.  This is not a spoiler. It’s completely obvious when you watch the trailer.

It’s about damn time for an R-rated Wolverine movie it’s worth it. Keep in mind that in this movie the year is 2049 and Logan as born in the 1880s or so and I think he’s aged very well.  What I love about Logan is that he’s a giant teddy bear. He wants to act like he’s this big bad tough guy, and he’ll resist and not want to help, but eventually he will because he’s a good person. He just tries way too hard to pretend that he’s not. This is what happens when Gabriela asks for Logan’s help and he says ‘No’ multiple times.

This is allI’m going to say.  I’m not going to give everything away because this is a movie that you’ve got to see for yourself and I’m not going to influence you in any way. If you don’t like X-Men, but love Logan, go and see it.  I will tell you, Laura, the little girl in the trailer is a little bad-ass and will become your favorite character. The actress who plays her, Dafne Keen, her life is now forever changed because of this movie. See this movie and let me know what you think.
