Lo­gan (15)

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - The Ticket -

Lo­gan marks Hugh Jack­man’s tenth and fi­nal ap­pear­ance as clawed mu­tant Wolver­ine – and it’s a fit­ting farewell.

The star and helmer James Man­gold go down the more adult road for a som­bre­but-soul­ful af­fair.

Jack­man has never been bet­ter in the role that made him fa­mous and seems to rel­ish play­ing a Wolver­ine past his prime.

It’s also heart­break­ing to wit­ness the trans­for­ma­tion in Pa­trick Ste­wart’s Pro­fes­sor X and new­comer Dafne Keen tack­les her phys­i­cally de­mand­ing turn with gusto.

There’s no build­ing- de­stroy­ing car­nage here, in­stead Man­gold tightly frames smaller-scale con­fronta­tions that are no less ef­fec­tive for it.
