SYNOPSIS

Berlatar masa depan, Logan dan Profesor Charles Xavier harus menghadapi kemusnahan X-Men ketika sebuah perusahaan yang dipimpin oleh Nathaniel Essex menghancurkan dunia dan membiarkannya rusak, sementara kemampuan Logan untuk sembuh mulai memudar dan penyakit Alzheimer yang diderita Xavier memaksanya untuk lupa. Logan harus mengalahkan Nathaniel Essex dengan bantuan seorang gadis kecil bernama Laura Kinney, sosok klon perempuan dari Wolverine.

 

Set in the future, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation led by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.

CRITICS REVIEW

AMIR SYARIF SIREGAR (Flick Magazine)

Dengan durasi penceritaan yang mencapai 137 menit, Mangold dengan leluasa menjabarkan deretan konflik yang harus dihadapi karakter-karakternya. Ritme pengisahan yang dipilihkan Mangold juga berhasil mencegah penonton untuk merasakan kebosanan–meskipun kadang cukup melelahkan untuk mengikuti pengisahan panjang yang dihadirkan. Sentuhan kebrutalan yang menghiasi banyak adegan Logan juga dieksekusi secara berkelas. Bukan hanya sebagai unsur kekerasan untuk menonjolkan kejantanan film namun turut menjadi elemen krusial dalam pengisahannya. Rating: ★★★★

CANDRA ADITYA (Detik)

Berbeda dengan film superhero kebanyakan yang temponya berjalan cepat, Logan bergerak tenang seperti mobil yang dikendarai Laura. Penempatan antara drama dan adegan aksinya rata. Pengadeganan dramanya memang terasa jauh lebih dominan daripada adegan aksinya, tapi justru karena dramanya kuat, begitu penonton melihat darah dan organ tubuh berterbangan di layar, efeknya terasa jauh lebih maksimal. Adegan aksi yang terjadi terasa bukan hanya sekedar show-off. Efeknya jauh lebih memikat. Rating: ★★★★

 

BLOGGERS REVIEW

ARUL FITTRON (Arul’s Movie Reviews)

135 menitnya terkadang memiliki performa yang naik turun, tak bisa terjaga hingga akhir. Tetapi, di beberapa poin terasa benar tensinya dan rasa emosional yang muncul lewat karakter-karakternya. Sejauh ini, memang Logan pantas mendapat kredibilitas sebagai film Wolverine terbaik. Rating: ★★★1/2

DANIEL IRAWAN (Daniel Dokter)

Turns into a bloody western yet still move in X-Men’s deepest veins, Logan strikes like a dystopian Shane unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Rating: ★★★★1/2

HARIS FADLI PASARIBU (Tales from Motion Sickness)

Jika kemudian mengatakan Logan sebagai film superhero terbaik, atau seri X-Men terbaik, mungkin agak berlebihan. Tapi sebagai entry terbaik dari trilogi Wolverine? Itu sudah pasti. Dengan segala kesederhanaannya, ia justru tampil mencolok. Fakta jika Logan dibekali dengan berbagai adegan laga seru adalah bonus, karena sejatinya ia justru berbicara tentang humanisme akan seorang manusia yang kebetulan saja memiliki kemampuan super. Sesuatu yang jarang ada di cakrawala film per-superhero-an. Rating: ★★★1/2

HARY SUSANTO (Movienthusiast)

Seri terbaik Wolverine paling brutal dan manusiawi sekaligus menutup perjalanan karakter Logan dengan emosional. Rating: ★★★★

LEE CHANDRA (MovSic)

Jackman and Stewart gave their heartfelt performance in Logan, the Wolverine film that we’ve been waiting for. Mangold crafted a brutal and very violent film, but never loses its meaning of family value. Rating: ★★★★

ODAGOMA RHEINHARD (Kinerasya)

Logan adalah bagian X-Men paling humanis yang pernah ada. Salam perpisahan yang sentimentil bagi Hugh Jackman dan Patrick Stewart. Logan adalah perjalanan yang mengakhiri seluruh hal yang dibangun sejak sebelumnya. Hal-hal kecil yang menjadikan seseorang manusia. Dan Logan memberikan kita sentuhan yang baik pada drama. Menjadikannya lebih mudah dikenang dan dirasa. Rating: ★★★★

PASKALIS DAMAR (Sinekdoks)

For a geri-superhero flick, Logan doesn’t look old or obsolete; it instead is fresh and visceral like those bloods the Wolverine spills. Being R-rated isn’t exactly the main commodity of Logan; as it delves profoundly into the geri-drama, parental issue, and X-Men expansion. Yes, what’s more interesting in X-Men world than “mutant cultivation” or that “most dangerous brain with degeneration syndrome” irony? Rating: ★★★★

RASYID HARRY (Movfreak)

Logan feels like Unforgiven with adamantium claws. The R-rating perfectly builds the world and characters inside it. Rating: ★★★★

REINO EZRA ANRETI (Ajirenji Mindstream Reviews)

Logan adalah hakikat Wolverine di layar perak. Brutal dengan laga berdarah-darah. Kisahnya intim dan menggugah walau berasa stretchy menjelang tutup. Rating: ★★★

TAUFIQUR RIZAL (CineTariz)

Berkat rating dewasa yang disandang, Wolverine lebih leluasa ngamuk dalam Logan yang kelam secara tuturan dan brutal secara visualisasi laga. Rating: ★★★1/2

TEGUH RASPATI (UlasanPilem)

Logan bukan tentang pertarungan dengan efek spesial, melainkan elegi soal menjadi superhero. Tentu saja, tak ada film yang realistis jika menampilkan kekuatan super, namun stakes dalam Logan terasa riil. Tak ada alat supercanggih, tak ada ledakan fantastis. Kekuatan super bukan untuk menunjukkan pertarungan spektakuler, melainkan menggerakkan plot dan karakter. Rating: ★★★1/2

VINCENT JOSE (The Jose Movie Review)

Combining many referenced style into one completely different taste, Logan has gone all the way in violence and character’s depth. Rating: ★★★★

    Given this is Hugh Jackman’s last ride, it would be a fan’s hope that they would finally show him in the classic Yellow and Black costume, especially since it was going to be originally teased in The Wolverine (the director of The Wolverine is also directing Logan).
    But I noticed a couple scenes that seem to hint that we’re going to get the suit, that makes this more than wishful thinking. At :30 of the trailer (using the Red-Banded trailer for use), Logan says that X-23 is an X-Men fan, showing a comic book adventure based on one of the adventures in the film world. We get a full-shot of it at :34 and there’s a couple noteworthy things (picture for reference).
    It’s a very modern-looking Storm, not unlike the Storm that was introduced in X-Men Apocalypse. Which means that not only is this comic made specifically for the film, but that the new X-Men team in Apocalypse will interact and go on missions with Logan EDIT: and that he gets the costume from the previous timeline.
    Another sign is that Wolverine’s eyes aren’t pure white. In fact we can see them… just like you could from that originally teased costume, which looks very much like the one in the comic.
    We can gauge that while she is a brute-force killer, she looks up to the X-Men, and likely wants to be like them, which is hard, given the setting and story of Logan. This is reinforced at 1:30, where Logan says he isn’t what she think he is, and that’s likely a hero/ a good man.
    My theory: After some-time of bonding, X-23 will likely be captured and/or there will be that classic 3rd-act confrontation which will lead to the two getting angry at one-another and separate, where then Logan will put on the suit to show that he’s still that hero he once was, likely during the final confrontation with the villain. It’s simple, easy, works well with the plot and characters, and is a great way to send off Jackman’s Wolverine.
    Curious to see what you guys think.
