10 Reasons Logan Is The Best X-Men Movie

9. It's The Most Topical X-Men Movie

Elizabeth Rodriguez Logan

The X-Men franchise has always been political, what with Magneto's backstory taking place during the Holocaust, and the prevailing theme of discrimination and prejudice that runs through most of the movies.

Logan dares to take this one step further by having Laura be a Mexican-born mutant who seeks refuge in the U.S. but is chased down throughout the movie by a group of white Americans who wish to recapture her.

While the film obviously couldn't have predicted Donald Trump winning the Presidency, the parallels between Trump's infamous initiatives against Mexico and the movie's events are unmistakable. This makes it the most politically-charged X-Men movie yet, because its concerns feel so true to contemporary life.
