In the 1960s, superpowered humans Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr work together to find others like them, but Erik's vengeful pursuit of an ambitious mutant who ruined his life causes a schism to divide them.
In 2029 the mutant population has shrunken significantly due to genetically modified plants designed to reduce mutant powers and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur. He takes care of the ailing old Professor X whom he keeps hidden away. One day, a female stranger asks Logan to drive a girl named Laura to the Canadian border. At first he refuses, but the Professor has been waiting for a long time for her to appear. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine. She is pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation; this is because they made her, with Logan's DNA. A decrepit Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use. It would appear that in the near-future, the times in which they were able put the world to rights with razor sharp claws and telepathic powers are now over.
The truck Logan trades in his limo for is a 2016 RAM 1500 Rebel pickup truck. See more »
(at around 1h 1 min) When the main characters are attacked in the casino hotel in Oklahoma City, Logan uses the elevator to return to their room to administer Prof. X's medicine. When Logan gets off the elevator the down button is clearly pressed but nobody is waiting in the hallway to get on. See more »
The Marvel logo features comic-book images of the X-Men in its pages. This ties into the X-Men comics Laura carries around, which contain coordinates for the Eden location. See more »
Chinese version is approx. 11 minutes shorter than the standard theatrical version. That version misses almost all blood and gore and uses alternate angles for some scenes, but includes the swearing. See more »
After watching this movie in March 2017, it took me way back and refreshed some memories. The last time i watched a superhero movie as intense, dark and gritty as this one was back in 2012, it was directed by a guy called Christopher Nolan (need not say more).
The movie is truly the end of an era. An era of X-Men movies which was spearheaded by the most beloved character in the series, the Wolverine aka Logan.
