Deaf critic movie review of Logan
A hearing perspective:
American film, Logan is a superhero action thriller movie. It is the tenth part in the X-Men film series and third and final part in the solo Wolverine series.
The film features Hugh Jackman as Logan, the Marvel Comics character Wolverine. It also stars Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Dafne Keen as Laura and Stephen Merchant as Caliban in important roles.
The film starts in the year 2029 when Logan has aged greatly because the metal alloy stuck to his bones has started poisoning him.
Logan and mutant tracker Caliban take care of Professor X who is suffering from a brain disease.
In a shocking turn of events, Logan gets to know that Laura is his biological daughter.
The way Logan and Professor X become a part of the plan to save Laura from the troublemakers forms the remaining part of the story.
The film is not a regular superhero film. It is a bit slow paced and more of a character-driven emotional story.
The best part of the film is the child artist Dafne Keen who deserves appreciation for her silent yet expressive role.
Overall, Logan is a one-time watch film.
