In this chapter from the exploits of Wolverine, the hirsute superhero returns to thwart the apocalyptic plans of supervillain Nathaniel Essex. But with Wolverine's healing abilities waning, he'll need the help of a female clone created from his DNA.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

Hugh Jackman has been playing The Wolverine for 17 years. He got the gig after Dougray Scott had to back out for MI2.

Ever since then, Wolverine has been the face of the X-Men franchise. They even brought him back for like 5 minutes during X-Men: Apocalypse.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a disaster. Mostly because of what they did to Deadpool than anything else. We just couldn't get past that.

The next movie - The Wolverine - was better but not awesome. Mostly, again, because of the ending. It was so weird.

But now, we are at the end of Hugh Jackman's tenure as Wolverine. And this movie was a fitting way to do it. It wasn't a superhero movie, it was a Western that happened to have a couple of superheros in it.

We find Logan in a future time from now, hauling folks around in a limo. He's earning cash to get a yacht that he and Professor X can live on. Partly to protect them from society, partly to protect society from them. See, Professor X has dementia. And that makes him the most dangerous mutant in the world.

Thing is, someone found The Wolverine and is asking for help. He very reluctantly gives that help but by the end of the movie he has experienced so much in a short period of time. Love, loss, pain, purpose.

Yes, the movie is violent - and as such rated R. But come on. Logan has knives coming out of his hands. It's bound to be bloody.

Have a hanky ready though. You'll cry a time or two. (NOTE: by the time I wrote this review I'd seen it twice and cried during both viewings)
