NOTE: This review contains a spoiler

"Logan" is the Wolverine based science fiction film that explores the life of the fictional superhero in his final days. Logan, also known as Wolverine, discovers he is dad to a young girl, Laura. However, she is a mutant, who is a violent killer, as is he, which makes for terrible viewing. In the film he battles to save her life, for a fee no less, promising to transport her to a safe place in North Dakota.

This film is quite disturbing. The director has an underage, preteen girl, Laura, played by young Dafne Keen, making disturbing demonic faces, while she severs people's heads. This is completely inappropriate and sick. This film was packed with an excessive amount of violence and much of it committed by children, which sends a sick message out to the public, particularly kids, who will encounter this movie at some point during its run within the next couple years.

In the film there is a mutant named, Caliban, whose name is one letter away from the word "Taliban." He works as a slave to Logan. Caliban is repeatedly mistreated. Caliban suffers from the serious genetic skin condition Erythropoietic Protoporphyria (EPP), which distresses adults and children alike with painful symptoms, necessitating they avoid sun exposure and harsh UV light, lest their skin erupts in painful blisters and begins bleeding. The sun literally causes EPP sufferers pain.

The makers of this film distastefully chose to mock a serious and potentially life threatening skin disorder that strikes people in childhood (a number of sufferers around the world are children and they are consigned to lives indoors), labeling its suffers "mutants" in this film, whose name sounds like the murderous terrorist group "Taliban." What a horrible way to stigmatize disease sufferers. Hollywood is disgusting.

There are a host of skin diseases and disorders in this world - skin cancer, psoriasis and shingles (manifests as a skin disorder), among others. EPP is no different. People with skin disorders are not mutants and the characterization and implication of that in this film is vile. Typical, ignorant Hollywood. For an industry that repeatedly demands tolerance from the world for themselves, Hollywood is unequivocally the most intolerant on the planet, which is evident in incidents such as this and the insulting way minorities and women are portrayed in their films.

They end the film by having a child turn a cross on a grave into an "x" for "x-men." They end the film one a sacrilegious note. Again, Hollywood is disgusting. It's a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah.
