Film review: ‘Logan’ ★★★★

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” In both the first and final frames of Logan, Hugh Jackman’s muscled, hirsute Wolverine wakes not alongside a beautiful woman nor at a school for mutants, but from a fitful sleep on the floor of a car. All glory, fame and pride are long gone as he, drunk, weary and seemingly on his very last legs, proceeds to eviscerate a group of gangbangers steeling the rims from the limo he now drives to earn money for self-medicating drugs and booze. It makes for a bold, bruising opening sequence.

Logan is released in the UK on 1st March – read the full CineVue review here.
