[{"text":"Logan #NL#Release date: March 2nd#NL#Directed By: James Mangold#NL#Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen#NL##NL#"},{"image":[{"src":"log541272logan-3.jpg"},{"caption":""}]},{"text":"Last Friday saw the release of the final Wolverine movie, Logan. This movie has been praised by critics and fans as the best adaptation of an X-Men movie released so far. I\u2019ve never seen any of the other stand-alone Wolverine movies, but this was a must see, not only for the fact it would be the last time Hugh Jackman played Logan, but also because it featured Laura Kinney! I had my reservations when the first trailer was released. I honestly thought they were going to try and do the \u2018Old Man Logan\u2019 story arc, which wouldn't have worked for many different reasons. But as more trailers were released, I saw that this wasn't the case. This movie was going to be something else, something special. #NL##NL#If you haven\u2019t seen this movie please stop reading, this is a spoiler area."},{"spoiler":"Heavy"},{"text":"#NL#Plot Summary:#NL##NL#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 up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.#NL##NL#For 17 years, Hugh Jackman has played Logan. While this new movie had many of the faces we've seen time and time again in X-Men movies, Logan felt very different from those movies. #NL##NL#As usual, we saw Logan hurled into the protector role, caring for his old friend Professor X, Laura Kinney, and the last remaining mutants. However, with the addition of Logan's buddy, Deadpool, we also saw intense and graphic brutality that went far past what we've come to expect from an X-Men movie. This movie has everything from blood, guts, and gore to everyone's favourite F word.#NL##NL#Hugh Jackman poured his heart and soul into his last performance as Logan. Letting him to say and do almost anything, really allowed him to give people the \u2018Wolverine\u2019 movie they\u2019d been waiting for. His intensity throughout the movie made it hard to take your eyes off of him. It's sad to think that he won\u2019t be coming back, but this movie has opened the door for a new era of X-Men. "},{"image":[{"src":"log927373logan-4.jpg"},{"caption":"Huge Jackman "}]},{"text":"Seeing the end of the Logan we've come to love wasn't the only heartbreaking thing about this movie. We also had to say goodbye to Patrick Stewart's Professor X. r#NL#r#NL#Stewart joined the cast for one last performance as Charles Xavier. Although Professor X was incredibly ill and losing control of his telepathic powers, was still the caring, nurturing protector of mutants he has always been. As he has done many times before, Charles helps Logan see past his own bullshit in order to help create a better future for mutants. "},{"image":[{"src":"log623242logan-5.jpg"},{"caption":"Patrick Stewart"}]},{"text":"I was a little surprised to see Stephen Merchant playing Caliban. This version of Caliban was very different from  the Caliban we saw in Apocalypse. The new Caliban was a caretaker for Professor X.  I thought that Merchant gave an excellent performance of a not so popular X-Men character. "},{"image":[{"src":"log131757logan-6.jpg"},{"caption":"Stephen Merchant "}]},{"text":"The amazingly talented Dafne Keen gave us an incredible first look at the character, Laura Kinney, or X-23, a clone of Wolverine. Kinney was created through Logan's blood and held by the Essex Corporation, which we saw in X-Men Apocalypse.#NL##NL#Despite being such a young actress, Keen managed to match Hugh's intensity throughout the movie, stealing nearly every scene she was in. Seeing Laura portrayed so beautifully, made me forget about that awful attempt on the character in \u2018X-Men 2.\u2019  #NL##NL#"},{"image":[{"src":"log436771logan-7.jpg"},{"caption":"Laura "}]},{"text":"#NL#Most of the main bad guys in this movie were very generic, with one notable exception; Richard E. Grant, the son of someone who previously worked on the Weapon X project. #NL##NL#For me, the bad guys weren\u2019t that important, it was watching Logan progress past the troubles he had experienced. Watching the relationship between Charles and Laura progress, and eventually with Logan was what I was paying more attention too."},{"image":[{"src":"log757242logan-8.jpg"},{"caption":"Donald Pierce"}]},{"text":"The ending of this movie saw not just one, but two heartbreaking scenes. Firstly Charles was murdered by X-24, a clone of Logan, that looked more like the comic version of the character than it did of the Logan we\u2019ve seen in the movies. My heart broke when Charles died, it shattered when Logan died in the final showdown. Logan fought all the way through this movie not to protect Laura, for him finally sum come to this role was breathtaking. His death scene was sad but Laura turning the cross on his grave to an X broke me. "},{"video":[{"src":"https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=DekuSxJgpbY"},{"caption":"Logan trailer 2"}]},{"text":"This movie was beautifully set and well paced however, there was one thing that did spoil it a little for me. The swearing was over used, to have Charles Xavier use the F word for no other reason than they can, was not needed. Swearing works when it is needed, either to express a feeling or for comedic value, not to replace "And" in sentence. This little grip didn\u2019t take away how perfect this movie was. #NL##NL#It's such a shame that Logan won't return on our screens, with Huge Jackman playing him. I can't image anyone else been able to fill them boots like he has. It has opened the door for a new era of mutants to come forward. Its already sorted with the arrival of Legion on TV. The direction they are going with Legion, and how beautifully they put together Logan, it can only mean good things for mutants in the future. #NL##NL#Until Next Time#NL#Peace, Love and Peanut Butter#NL##NL#Sammie #NL##NL#"}]
