Logan (Wolverine) with Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart

The year is 2029 and a mutant hasn't been born in 15 years due to eradication by a mysterious scientist and security company.  There is great writing in this movie and graphic, necessary violence which matches that of the comic books.  Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) after all is a violent figure.

The aforementioned scientist and security company have engaged in genetic experimentation, creating new mutants.  One young girl is very similar to Wolverine but enhanced.  Upon meeting her, Logan is reluctant to take her in but Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) encourages him to embrace her presence.  The fight scenes and graphics associated with this character alone are worth every dollar of admission.

However, this is still a sad story where Wolverine struggles both with an illness that is inhibiting his healing power and the endless series of tragedies that have always defined his personal life.

While the writing is great though most of the movie, it takes an abrupt transition toward the end and rushes there.  I am not fond of the ending or the way Marvel decided to end the Wolverine series, this being the last official film.  However,  I highly recommend it and give it an 8 out of 10 point scale of quality.
