In the not so distant future with most mutants extinct. Logan (Hugh Jackman) is living life as a chauffeur.

With Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in hiding on the Mexican border with a debilitating brain disease, Logan is trying to save enough money to buy a boat so they can spend the rest of their days at sea. That is until one day a mysterious lady finds Logan and begs him to take her and her daughter to North Dakota as they are in danger. In typical Logan fashion this does not go to plan and the young girl, Laura (Dafne Keen), stows away in Logan’s car.

The film, after you get over the shock of hearing Patrick Stewart swear, is gritty, violent and earns its 15 rating in the first 5 minutes. Dafne Keen is a great addition to the cast and hopefully a sequel following her will be in the works soon.

With Hugh Jackman saying that this will be his last outing as Wolverine, this movie is a good send off for this character.
