In 2029 the mutant population has shrunken significantly due to genetically modified plants designed to reduce mutant powers and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur. He takes care of the ailing old Professor X whom he keeps hidden away. One day, a female stranger asks Logan to drive a girl named Laura to the Canadian border. At first he refuses, but the Professor has been waiting for a long time for her to appear. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine. She is pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation; this is because they made her, with Logan's DNA. A decrepit Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use. It would appear that in the near-future, the times in which they were able put the world to rights with razor sharp claws and telepathic powers are now over.
This movie takes place six years after Wolverine woke up in alternate 2023 at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). However, it was later confirmed that the previous X-Men movies took place on Earth-10005, while Logan takes place on Earth-17315. See more »

Toward the very end of the roll, a credit misspells the star's home country name as "Austrialian". See more »
Chinese version is approx. 11 minutes shorter than the standard theatrical version. That version misses almost all blood and gore and uses alternate angles for some scenes, but includes the swearing. See more »

This Movie Stands on its Own
I was pleasantly Surprised on this movie. What held it for me is that you didn't need all the other marvel comic characters in the film. Story Arc was well produced and adapted to the big screen. As another reviewer mentioned I also wished there would have been more fight sequences between Logan and X-23. I thoroughly enjoyed this film.
