Logan reviews are coming in for the new film, with Hugh Jackman scoring high marks in his third standalone effort as Wolverine. Taking place in the future, Logan serves as a bit of closure for the character of Wolverine, as it has been widely reported that Jackman is retiring this role. It doesn’t mean someone else won’t pick up the torch a bit later, but Jackman has nearly completed his run as the star of this particular franchise.

The early Logan reviews are suggesting that this could be the best film to come from the X-Men franchise so far. In a report on the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes, the critics have stated that this film is “certified fresh.” With 141 critics weighing in on the film written and directed by James Mangold, the Logan reviews have received an overall mark of 93 percent. This is an exemplary grade, especially for a film coming from the comic book and action genre.

The film continues the latest story arc that the character of Wolverine has undertaken, with Logan opening in the year 2029. Barely any mutants are left in the world, save for Wolverine, outcast Caliban, and a much-older Professor X. As nearly all of the Logan trailers have shown, one of the main focal points of this particular story is a girl that has begun to exhibit some of the characteristics of other mutants from the past.
