Honestly, I've never really been a sci-fi buff. In fact, I'm more of a romance gal who enjoys watching two people fall in love for the first time. Yeah, I'm all about the mushy gushy stuff and I wouldn't have it any other way.
However, when my husband described the movie Logan, Hugh Jackman's final turn as Wolverine, I was intrigued.
Like I said, when it comes to sci-fi movies such as Star Trek, Star Wars, or Alien, I don't know much. But, before you judge me for being a girly girl who just favors one genre, I'd like you to know I've also seen Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mad Max and Interstellar.
As someone who has never seen X-Men, I really enjoyed Logan. Despite the violence, there's actually a story in the story and it's rather heartfelt. The emotion comes from the little girl (Laura), who was genetically modified engineered to have abilities similar to Logan. Rather, she's his illegitimate child. They share a bond that's rather powerful and refreshing to see from Logan.
According to rottentomatoes.com - which rated this film at 92%- It's 2029. Mutants are gone--or very nearly so. An isolated, despondent Logan is drinking his days away in a hideout on a remote stretch of the Mexican border, picking up petty cash as a driver for hire. His companions in exile are the outcast Caliban and an ailing Professor X, whose singular mind is plagued by worsening seizures.
But Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy abruptly end when a mysterious woman appears with an urgent request--that Logan shepherd an extraordinary young girl to safety. Soon, the claws come out as Logan must face off against dark forces and a villain from his own past on a live-or-die mission, one that will set the time-worn warrior on a path toward fulfilling his destiny, says the source.
In this film, Hugh Jackman's performance was both raw and real. It's the last time Hugh Jackman pulls out the claws as Logan and Patrick Stewart plays Professor X and so it's was their "curtain calling" for these roles. If they do in fact continue on with the series, the question is who will replace Hugh Jackman? Well, whoever does fill these spots have huge shoes to fill.
Let us know who you'd like to see play Wolverine and Professor X.
