  • Logan

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 9th March 2017

    There only three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and the fact that someone is hard at work writing a sequel to the X-Men movie you're currently watching. Logan, the third Wolverine standalone movie after X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, is the exception: it is the last in its series, because Hugh Jackman says so, and not just because they've run out of ways to name Wolverine movies. Buoyed by the success of 15-rated Deadpool and supported by Jackman's desire to leave a lasting legacy for his defining role, Logan is that rare superhero movie that feels like a full stop rather than a comma. Intentionally distanced from the rest of the X-Men universe and its frankly Gordian timelines, Logan stands alone as the best of the series: a bleak, bold and mold-breaking masterpiece of the genre.

    In a world of misery, poverty, hunger, war, despair and Shia LaBeouf, let's take a moment to be thankful for the magical things the human race can achieve with a camera phone, a Panama hat and a pan of rice.

    Part-time Narnia fawn James McAvoy is to bald it up as the young Professor X in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men prequel, First Class. Presumably Jason Statham was unavailable.
