Summary

Action adventure starring Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. In the future, the X-Men are gone, no new mutants have been born in decades and a world-weary Wolverine is now lying low south of the American border in the company of a mentally frail Professor X. However, their seclusion is abruptly interrupted by the arrival of a mutant child with some familiar-looking powers.

Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Hugh Jackman's swansong as the X-Men's main man finds a grizzled, scarred Wolverine pared to the bone, often literally with his mutant ability to heal on the wane. Director James Mangold's fabulous follow-up to The Wolverine is set in 2029 when the X-Men are gone, no mutants have been born in years and a jaded Logan is lying low south of the border, along with a decrepit and psychically unstable Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart). However, their desert seclusion isshattered with the arrival of Laura (His Dark Materials' Dafne Keen), a mysterious chip off the old mutant block (claws, surliness, anger issues), and a pursuing army of cyborg killers led by Richard E Grant's sinister scientist. Packed with salty banter and ferocious confrontations (including encounters an Oklahoma hotel and at a backwoods farm), this X-tale is certainly not for kids. Aided by franchise-best performances from Jackman and Stewart, Mangold has produced a visceral, often moving drama with an end-of-an-era tone worthy of Sam Peckinpah.
