LOGAN (2017) Movie Review

  • By Cara Buckley

Matthew 18:10 says, "Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father." -NLT

Logan is no typical sequel to the X-Men series. It is dark. It is depressing. It is violent. It begins void of hope.

The X-Men are dead except for two. Charles Xaver has serious dementia, and Logan is dying. He is growing old. He is growing weak. His powers are dissipating. He resorts to alcoholism to numb his pain.

Logan is a man on the verge of giving up on life. Without the X-Men, his purpose changes in a significant way. He works a dead-end job, saving money to buy a safe haven for Xavier. He is Xavier's guardian, protecting him from the world and protecting the world from him.

Until Laura appears on his doorstep.

Though Logan has never met Laura, she has many things in common with him. She has the same power, the same claws, the same fighting skills, and the same reclusive personality. His purpose suddenly shifts from protecting Charles to protecting Laura as they travel to a designated safe place.  He also guides her down a more civilized path. He becomes a much-needed father figure.

Proverbs 22:6 says, "Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." -NLT

Logan lives in a world where mutants are nearly extinct until he discovers a small group of persecuted children. These children represent hope for the future of mutants, a misunderstood and hunted people. Persecuted people. Logan becomes their protector.

He finds a new and more fulfilling purpose. He protects them. He rescues them from slaughter. He spares them from the life of slaves and soldiers. He sets them down a virtuous path. His final mission becomes the noblest mission of all: preserving the future generation.
