Director: James Mangold.
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen. USA 2017. 137 mins.
In what is probably his final outing as the blade-knuckled superhero, Hugh Jackman returns as the Wolverine aka Logan. In the words of director James Mangold (The Wolverine, 3:10 To Yuma), Logan is “older now, and his abilities aren’t what they once were”. Not that any of that means disappointment for Wolverine fans: he is up against Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook, Gone Girl), leader of the Reavers, the cyborg team dedicated to eliminating the very mutants that Logan exemplifies. Patrick Stewart reprises his role as Charles Xavier, telepathic ex-leader of the X-Men, whose powers are also ailing, and who along with Logan is being cared for by Caliban (Stephen Merchant) and Laura (scene-stealing newcomer Keen), who may or may not be a Logan clone. Expect introspective moments among the pyrotechnic showpieces.
