Logan had it's first show yesterday and I didn't wait long and bought the tickets as soon as I could. The movie is taking place in the year 2029. It starts off slowly by introducing the first 3 main characters: An old Wolverine, the even older Charles Xavier and Caliban. Caliban had his next appearance after X-Men: Apocalypse. In the first ~45 minutes you can already see that Charles is mentally ill as he gets a seizure since he can't control his brain anymore. Thus he has to take medicine and pills. Wolverine had a rough past as he received a lot of scars and you see him coughing through the entire movie.
All 3 of these characters are living in the wasteland to hide from society. Logan is doing a Taxi-service to earn some money so that he and Charles can move to a nicer place in the future. While Logan is driving around he meets a Spanish woman with a girl on the back of her car. That girl is X-23 (Laura Kinney). The antagonist is Donald Pierce, a member of a company that's developing child-mutants. (X-23 is one of those). Pierce is seeking for X-23 as the kids escaped from the company. Laura is hiding with Logan and Charles. The road trip-like movie is about Pierce chasing Logan, Charles and the girl.
The film has a good story telling, no boring parts, a nice setting with nice camera shots, good music, some really thrilling parts and there were moments I haven't anticipated at all. However it's typical for Marvel movies to have a boring antagonist. Pierce is very predictable, has no character development and is very clear from the beginning. He only wants to carry out his plans. All in all I enjoyed the movie and I'm glad I've watched it in the cinema. Recommending the movie to those who are a fan of the X-Men franchise and a movie with good story telling.
