In 1945, Logan is a prisoner in a Japanese POW camp near Nagasaki. When the Americans drop the atomic bomb, he rescues the life of an officer named Yashida.
In the present day, Logan lives as a hermit in the Canadian wilderness, tormented by hallucinations of Jean Grey, whom he was forced to kill in the previous film. One day, during a bar-fight with some hunters, he is located by Yukio, a woman with mutant powers enabling her to forsee people’s deaths, representing Yashida, now the CEO of a technology corporation, who is dying of cancer. Yashida wants Logan to accompany Yukio to Japan to repay his life debt.
In Tokyo, Logan meets Yashida’s sonShingen and Shingen’s daughter, Mariko. Yashida offers to conduct a transplant, removing Logan’s immortality and transferring it to himself. Logan refuses and prepares to leave the following day. That night, while Logan dreams of Jean, Yashida’s doctor, the mutant Viper, injects a robotic parasite in Logan’s system, which affects his healing factor. The next morning, Logan is informed that Yashida has died, and attends the funeral, where he saves Mariko from Yakuzaassassins with help from Yashida’s associate Kenuichio Harada, a skilled archer and Mariko’s former lover, who still loves her. In the process, Logan is shot and finds out he is not healing as before.
After fighting more assassins on a bullet train, Logan and Mariko hide in a local hotel. While Mariko sleeps, Logan stands guard outside and experiences another hallucination of Jean before passing out from his injuries. When he awakens, he discovers that Mariko had the hotel owner’s grandson, a veterinarian, stitch him up. Meanwhile, Harada meets with Viper who, after demonstrating her mutant powers on him, demands he find Logan and Mariko.
Logan and Mariko go to Yashida’s house in Nagasaki. As they slowly fall for each other, Logan starts revealing his past to Mariko. Meanwhile, Yukio has a vision of Logan dying, and goes to warn him. However, she is too late and Mariko is captured. After interrogating one of her kidnappers, Logan goes to confront Mariko’s fiance, corrupt Chief of Justice Noburo Mori, who reveals that Shingen has ordered the kidnapping.
At Yashida Corporation’s headquarters, Shingen reveals Yashida has left Mariko his empire, and prepares to kill her when Harada arrives with his Black Ninja clan and Viper; Harada rescues Mariko, while Viper poisons Shingen. They then take Mariko to a research center based in Yashida’s home town.
Arriving at Yashida Corporation with Yukio, Logan uses Yashida’s medical technology to locate the parasite and extract it, but appears to die during the operation. Yukio is attacked by Shingen, who prepares to kill her when Logan awakens and intervenes, killing Shingen. Logan and Yukio then follow Harada and Viper to the research center, where Logan is attacked and captured by Harada and his men.
Logan is placed in a machine by Viper, who reveals her plans to extract his immortality and introduces Logan to her associate, theSilver Samurai, who has an adamantium sword and the ability to charge it with energy to increase its cutting power. After talking with Harada, who believes he is protecting her still, Mariko escapes and manages to direct the machine Logan is in into the Silver Samurai’s sword strike, breaking it and freeing him. Harada sees the error of his ways and is killed by the Silver Samurai while helping Logan escape. Meanwhile, Yukio arrives and defeats Viper by hanging her, while Logan fights the Silver Samurai, who cuts off his adamantium claws and begins to extract Logan’s healing abilities, revealing himself to be Yashida, who had faked his death and starts to regain his youth. Mariko intervenes and stabs Yashida with the discarded claws, giving Logan the opportunity to disable the armor with his bone claws and throw Yashida off a cliff before passing out. While unconscious, Logan hallucinates about Jean in a white room, but decides to finally move on. Before he wakes, Jean remarks that she is all alone there.
Mariko becomes CEO of Yashida Corporation and bids farewell to Logan as he prepares to leave Japan. Yukio vows to stay by Logan’s side as his bodyguard, and they depart to places unknown.
In a post-credits scene, Logan returns to the United States two years after the events in Japan, and watches an ad for Trask Industries and their advances in the field of robotics before being confronted by Magneto(with his powers restored). Magneto announces that Logan’s help is required to stop a new enemy that threatens to exterminate the mutant race. When Logan inquires why he should trust Magneto,Professor Charles Xavier arrives to reassure him. Logan is surprised to see Xavier alive as Xavier reminds Logan that he is not the only one with gifts.
My view of the film
Ok I am not a Huge fan Of Marvel or DC but I do have to say after watching the first film I definitely wanted to watch this one..
you can see now why I was “omg we have to go see this !!”
and let me tell you I was on the edge of my seat ! graphics were Epic and characters I have to say Hugh as always great actor and even better as Logan.
Yukio I was very much taken by this actress there was so much within this, what looked like timid lady that after meeting her on screen showed she was not timid she was a kick ass girl and not to be reckoned with.
the other main characters were also very good, the scene setting and background information given from Tokyo prison of war, the showing of Logan doing good for human Kind was as I can put it heart warming,
this film without giving to much away is a must see !
I have found inspiration from Yukio
