The 30 Best Action Movies Of The 2010s Ranked


Since arriving in Hollywood in 2000, star Hugh Jackman has been inextricably linked to the role of Wolverine, the bitter, adamantium-clawed mutant he’d played in his major Hollywood studio debut, “X-Men.” Nearly 20 years later, after reprising the role in five more “X-Men” films and two solo spin-offs, he was finally ready to say goodbye. The result was the 2017 film “Logan,” a superhero story unlike any other, which saw Jackman paired with “3:10 to Yuma” director James Mangold in a gritty, violent story loosely adapted from the hit comic book series “Old Man Logan.”

The epic swan song sees the eponymous Logan aging beyond repair, with his renowned healing factor failing him. Hiding out in the desert, he cares for an ailing Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), staying isolated from those who still hunt mutantkind. But when he comes across a mysterious young mutant girl named Laura (Daphne Keen), whose powers seem eerily similar to his own, he reluctantly agrees to keep her safe from a group of mercenaries who are looking for her. 

An emotionally powerful story of faith, family, and forgiveness, “Logan” is the haunting story of a man’s final quest to find meaning in life and perhaps in death. Making his final appearance as Wolverine, Jackman poured his heart into the role and the results are all up on screen, helping make “Logan” the highest-rated and most critically acclaimed of Fox’s “X-Men” universe of films.
