The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM | SEVEN DAYS | - DC

Im­pres­sive, ele­giac film con­cern­ing the later days of the man who was Wolver­ine. Lo­gan (Jack­man) now lives mis­er­ably with ail­ing Pro­fes­sor X (Ste­wart) and stressed Cal­iban (Mer­chant) in a dusty part of Texas. The mu­tants seem to be dy­ing out. Then a gifted child moves into their life. Man­gold’s film ends in tra­di­tional su­per­hero fash­ion, but, to that point, it man­ages an un­ex­pected grit and wel­come semi-se­ri­ous­ness. The vi­o­lence is bloody. 16 cert, gen re­lease, 140 min
