Violent and foul-mouthed it may be (no limitations to the final Wolverine film being a kid-friendly flick) but director James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk the Line) has crafted Hugh Jackman’s final outing with respect and a satisfying sense of finality.
Mutants may have been (mostly) wiped out but new and illegal experiments on kids in Mexico go badly wrong. Cue ageing Wolverine and Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) stepping into the breach. It’s an action drama that’s invested in the script. And young newcomer Dafne Keen is excellent.
