While sending off the old character, Logan also introduces a young generation into the franchise. As Logan is forced on a journey to help a new mutant, he is able to reconnect with something that has been missing from his life for a while... a family. This is not a straight action flick with explosions and weak villains. Rather, this film is a family drama with an aging Logan and Professor X. At a time when there are so many superhero films being pushed through Hollywood, it is nice to see one that stands out as a unique drama.
The tone of Logan drives the film to success with a serious outing for Marvel. Marvel newest films have been more comedic than serious, but Logan shows the diversity in their storylines. This may be the last film for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, but it will remain in our minds as one of the best X-Men films in the franchise. Because of the tonal differences, I found it hard to connect with this film a bit more than with previous installments. However after a bit of reflection I do believe that this was the best way to approach the end of Jackman's portrayal of the main X-Men character. As per the special effects, this film stands up to the others with good graphics and still a few jaw-dropping mutant powers throughout. Nothing else really needs to be said about this film aside from the fact that Jackman will be missed!
The Bottom Line: Jackman's final outing as Wolverine is much different from previous installments in the franchise, creating a more emotional sendoff for the most relatable X-Men character.
