"Wolverine: Last Stand" is a science fiction movie released in 2017, directed by James Mangold, starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Daphne Keen and Boyd Holbrook. This movie is the third in the "Wolverine" series, and it is also the last appearance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine/Logan, so it has attracted much attention from fans.
The background of the movie is set in the future. In 2029, mutants (Mutants) are almost extinct, and Wolverine/Logan is getting old and weakening. He hides to care for his Alzheimer's-stricken mentor, Professor X (Charles Xavier, played by Patrick Stewart). Professor X's out-of-control psychic abilities became a danger, so he was kept in a secluded place to prevent harming others.
In this desperate future, Logan meets a young girl named Laura (Daphne Keen), who is also a mutant with healing powers and iron claws similar to Wolverine. Laura is hunted, and Logan decides to help her escape and find a fabled sanctuary, a place where mutants can escape persecution.
In the film, the audience witnesses an angry, exhausted Wolverine, who was once a powerful mutant, but now he is just a man on the verge of collapse. Hugh Jackman performed well in this role, expressing the complex emotions and inner struggles of the character vividly and touchingly.
At the same time, the appearance of Laura also adds a lot to the film. She formed a special father-daughter relationship with Logan. Although Logan seemed alienated and indifferent to her company on the surface, deep down he had a deep sense of concern and responsibility. Daphne Keene plays the role brilliantly, showing her tenacity and determination to the fullest.
In addition to personal emotional lines, the action scenes of the film are also one of its highlights. Fierce battles, exciting chases, and Wolverine's iconic iron claw battle scenes all make the film full of tension and excitement. At the same time, the film also has in-depth discussions on human nature and the meaning of life, allowing the audience to think about deeper issues while enjoying the action scenes.
Wolverine: Last Stand caps the series in a tragic and touching way. This is a work that breaks the traditional superhero movie model, focusing on the inner performance and emotional expression of the characters, while still being exciting and dynamic. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart's superb acting skills, as well as the film's profound themes, make it a shining pearl in the "Wolverine" series.
Overall, "Wolverine: Mortal Standing" is a sci-fi movie full of emotion, action and depth. It is not only a superhero movie, but also a touching work about the meaning of life and sacrifice. The success of the film is inseparable from the superb performances of the director and actors, as well as the courage to explore new superhero themes. Whether it is a fan of the "Wolverine" series or an ordinary audience, it is worth seeing the style of this film.
