It might be hard to believe, but it’s been almost 20 years since X-Men ushered films based on comic books into the modern era. In the nearly two decades since, audiences have been treated to a tremendous array of comic based movies loaded with near countless super heroes and brimming with an incredible amount of mayhem and destruction. However, in the most recent installment of the X-Men film franchise, cartoony, big city annihilation has given way to heartfelt drama in Logan. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart reprise their roles as Wolverine and Professor Xavier respectively, and while the movie still features edge-of-your-seat action, the more human aspects of the characters are explored and laid out to fantastic effect.
