The Wolverine Himself
Actor portrayal: what can I say about it? The actor portrayal is spot on as always. Hugh Jackman is Wolverine – and it’s interesting to see him play this character from a different perspective. Sir Patrick Steward is remarkable as always as Professor Xavier. The real stand out is Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney. The film rested on a connection with this little girl and she delivered. She played the role with ferocity and quiet rage that could put her co-actors to shame.
Finally, we come to the villains. Boyd Holbrook does a decent job playing a cocky jerk, while Richard E. Grant follows up with a creepy scientist. While the film was great, the villainy wasn’t on par with any legendary antagonists by any means. Then again, this really wasn’t what the film was shooting for.
Logan: Final Thoughts
This is truly the end of an era. While all of the films with Wolverine weren’t exactly stellar, Hugh Jackman did the character justice. Logan is a wonderful send-off, and I’ll admit it left me feeling a little hollow inside. This may be the last X-Men film starring Jackman and Steward, but their portrayal will always be the one to beat. One can only hope that we can follow the new generation and that they prove better than the last.
