‘Logan’ Is Hugh Jackman’s Best Performance To Date, Critics Say

In "Logan," Hugh Jackman stars as a limo driver who ditched his superhero name, and cares for an ailing Professor X - who is suffering from a degenerative brain disorder - and they are in a hide out on the Mexican border. His attempt to hide from the world is up-ended when a young mutant arrives, who is being pursued by dark forces. Logan looks tired, and thickened - not the old Wolverine that we knew of.

The movie places emphasis of character drama instead of action. "Logan" premiered at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival on February 17, and some critics say that this is the best "X-Men" movie since 2003's X2, and Hugh Jackman's best performance yet.

According to Entertainment Weekly, this stand-alone movie is both violent and sentimental. The movie, critics say is the most "realistic" superhero movie and it captures a level of realism that has never been seen before in its genre.

Time said that the movie is explicitly for adults, and the MPAA has given it an R for violence, brief nudity, and curse words. The website also said that "Logan" is tapping the national mood of at least half of the United States right now. Some say that the movie has a mature consideration of ideas, and that it has a movie with a heart.

"Logan" is 136 minutes, and a lot of people find that too long, but the small scenes seem to build up the movie, and develop the characters as well. Jackman's performance will make this movie worth watching though, and he makes his superhero the real deal.

The movie is not a game changer for the "X-Men" franchise, but "Logan" gives a fond send-off to Jackman, and the character that he defined for a generation, a critic said. The movie will hit US theaters on March 3. "Logan" is directed by James Mangold.
