The movie has some decent stars in it from dwayne johnson as Mitch, Zac Efron as Matt Brody, Kelly Rohrback who played C.J. Parker. and Priyanka Chopra who played as Victoria Leeds just to name a few. while to me the movie was ok, and it did make a good profit ,it did receive major negative feedback from critics.
So in a beach somewhere in Emerald Bay, FL.As an elite division known as Baywatch, A group of lifeguards and their lieutenant Mitch Buchanan protects the bay and beaches. The community loves Mitch, why wouldn’t they, he saved many lives in his career as lifeguard. Near the Huntley Club that is owned now by Victoria Leeds, Mitch makes a discovery, He finds some drugs. Fast Forward. The job is now having tryouts in the search for new lifeguards, And three people seem to be most looked at. Ronnie who is a nerd on the chubby side who is interested in C.J. Then you have Summer Quinn who is a good surfer and Last you have Matt Brody who was a former gold medal Olympian. Brody is not up for passing any trials because he feels that he has a gold medal so he should be places on the team, while Summer Quinn and Ronnie do what they must and pass.
Mitch is trying to convince his captain, Captain Thorpe that Brody is unfit for the job. But Thorpe is focused on not allowing the city to cut Baywatch’s funding and the idea is to rebuild Brody’s image. So with that being said Mitch is now on mission to train Brody. A private yacht is on fire, and now the team must go. During this mission Brody almost goes under while disregarding Mitch’s orders.But C.J. and Holden manages to save Brody. Later in the movie Victoria Leeds has a party.

The job that Joe, Albert and Willie work for is sold and that put them in a situation with their pensions. Joe has 30 days before him and his daughter and granddaughter will be evicted. Willie on the other hand finds out that he is need f a transplant do to the situation he is having, at the same time him his granddaughter and daughter are far away from each other do to his money issues. So the friends come up with this idea that the only way to fix all f these financial issues they are having is to rob a bank.Joe puts together the plan, since he was the one out of the group who actually witnessed a robbery.
At first Willie and Albert where shocked of the idea that Joe had planned out, but when they realize that their pensions were about to get token by their bank they are all for Joe’s plan. So there is this guy named Murphy, Joe’s ex son in law, who works as a pet store manager to cover up his criminal activities gives the team some lesson’s since Albert’s grocery store shoplifting did not go as expected.

Hamer brings out this young girl as a witness, she was the same girl that basically took off willies mask at the carnival when he had his little situation, and they became friends in that little time. So back to the line up, the little girl refuses to do something which basically leaves Hamer with no case against the guys. Later on Willie is really in need of something and then gets a good surprise.

Logan, to me wasn’t bad, This movie was produced by marvel Entertainment and TSG Entertainment. One of the best super hero movies released in 2017 averaging about 518 million from the 97 million invested. crazy right. Logan is the tenth 10 installment in x- men series, man that’s a lot and that would make it about wolverines third solo movie. The movie was directed by James Magold, who by the way did an amazing job,And the producers Hutch Parker, Simon Kinberg and L shuler donner, Great work. And also,talking about great work, I think Dafne keen aka wolverines daughter,I guess you can say since she was a female mutant clone created from his blood, was very impressive this was her first film role and i think she nailed it. I see a great future for her.
The movie is basically about mutants reaching extinction in the very late 2000’s. Wolverine drives a limo somewhere out in Texas for a living and spend his days drinking, hes older now wich means his powers are not as to the fullest as they ounce were. Wich means heal time slows a bit and probably takes a couple seconds late for his wolverine claws to come out. Him and mutant Taliban are somewhere in this abandoned place taking care professor Charles x, who is losing control of his telepathic powers due to some kind of issue he is having. So Logan attempts to hide from the world, but it does not end up like that.
So here comes ms Lopez ,Who is wanting Logan to protect her and young mutant Laura to get to North Dakota. So basically Logan gets convinced, i mean why not, She’s offering money. So something happens to where that plan is countered. Wouldn’t want to ruin this part for you tho, now Logan ,Prof X and Laura are on a mission to get away from these enforcer guys.Now the movie gets a bit interesting, Logan and professor x makes a discovery about a project that took place in 2020 that involves Laura and many other mutant kids. Many of these mutants were getting samples taken from them for production to create weapons. Profess X later on has a little guilt about a telepathic incident he had where he ended up accidentally killing some mutants and injuring a few people , he shares this information with who he thinks is wolverine, what a surprise he gets.
From there its just crazy excitement. Logan goes against himself, Tries to rescue Laura from being captured. Some children gets saved in the mix.Great action movie without a doubt. It has some crazy action packed scenes,Its like they connect to the viewer. When Logan goes into action its so authentic, making you want to see more, This doesn’t seem like a cartoon style of movie like most the previous x men movies. It brings a more organic feel to who’s watching. Feels as if it shows you that by approaching a genre in just a slightly different way, it shows how deep you can go, But this movie to me is a must go see, The ending will leave you shocked tho. But o well. thanks Hugh Jackman for an amazing wolverine run. And to James Mangold for directing a great action packed movie.
