"You know, Logan... this is what life looks like. A home, people who love each other. Safe place. You should take a moment and feel it."
"Yeah. It's great."
"Logan. Logan! You still have time."
"Charles, the world is not the same as it was."

Logan is the third and final film in the Wolverine trilogy and the tenth installment in the X-Men film series. Directed by James Mangold, who directed The Wolverine, the film stars Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Logan/Wolverine as well as Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier/Professor X. The movie is also notable for being both Jackman and Stewart's last portrayal of their characters.

It was released worldwide on March 3, 2017. Home media releases were released on May 16, 2017, for Digital HD and May 25, 2017, for Blu-ray and DVD respectively. A black and white version of the film, titled Logan: Noir was also available for the home media release.


In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan's attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.[1]


The year is 2029. Logan, who has aged greatly when his healing factor began to falter over the years, spends his days working as a chauffeur and hustling for prescription drugs in Texas while he and Caliban live in an abandoned smelting plant across the border in Mexico, where they care for a senile Charles Xavier, who had inadvertently killed several of his X-Men in a seizure-induced psychic attack a year earlier.

At a cemetary during a funeral, Logan is approached by Gabriela, a nurse for Transigen. She later asks him to escort her and an 11-year-old girl named Laura to a place in North Dakota called "Eden". After reluctantly accepting the job, Logan discovers that Gabriela has been murdered. After returning to the abandoned smelting plant, he, Xavier, and Laura narrowly escape from Donald Pierce, the Reavers, and some Mexican federal police while Caliban is captured and ordered to use his mutant powers to track them.

Logan and Xavier learn through a video on Gabriela's phone that Transigen was breeding children with DNA samples from an equal number of mutants, but upon completion of the "X-24" project, all of the children were to be put to death. Gabriela helped several children escape from the Transigen compound before smuggling Laura across the border. Furthermore, Laura is revealed to be Logan's daughter, as she was bred with his DNA.

While staying in Oklahoma City, Logan develops skepticism over the location of Eden, as he discovers it being referenced in an X-Men comic book that Laura brought with her.

The Reavers find their whereabouts, but Xavier suffers another seizure and freezes everyone at the hotel with a psychic blast. Logan injects Xavier with a suppressant before they leave the city. The trio are seen driving on a highway with automated freight trucks (Auto-Trucks), Logan asks Xavier when he last took his medication which was 2 days ago. As they pass a car towing horses they are almost pushed off the road by an auto-truck changing lanes which sends them swerving into oncoming trucks on the other road as well as the car with the horses. The horses are set loose, but are calmed and return back to their owner by Xavier using his powers on the horses. After helping get the truck on the road, they are then invited for dinner by the couple which Xavier insistently accepts. That night, Xavier and the family are killed by X-24, a perfect clone of Logan, who then shackles Laura and heads to the Reavers' van. Caliban grabs two grenades and sets them off, killing himself and destroying the van while Logan and Laura once again escape. After burying Xavier, Logan passes out. Logan wakes up at a doctor's office. Logan reluctantly follows Laura's orders to take her to Eden. Donald Pierce finds out about the children's location from a photograph Laura kept.

They arrive at Eden, which is a safe haven run by Rictor and former Transigen test subjects. There, Logan learns that the children will make an eight mile journey across the forest to the Canadian border, but they are quickly captured by the Reavers.

Using a mutant serum given to him by Rictor, Logan injects himself which heals all his past scars and restores his strength to his physical prime. Fully re-energized Logan plows through the Reavers, but the serum wears off quickly before he meets Zander Rice, the head of the Transigen project who sought to avenge his father's death during the Weapon X program. Logan kills Rice while the children overwhelm Pierce with their powers, but he is outmatched by X-24. He is impaled through a tree during the fight, but Laura shoots X-24 in the head with an Adamantium bullet, which Logan had kept with him for years.

After Logan succumbs to his wounds, Laura and the children bury him before continuing their journey across the border. As they all leave, Laura returns to Logan's grave, removes the cross, and places it on its side to create an X, honoring Logan as the last of the X-Men.
