Synopsis: In 2029 the mutant population has shrunken significantly due to genetically modified plants designed to reduce mutant powers and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur. He takes care of the ailing old Professor X whom he keeps hidden away. One day, a female stranger asks Logan to drive a girl named Laura to the Canadian border. At first he refuses, but the Professor has been waiting for a long time for her to appear. Laura possesses an extraordinary fighting prowess and is in many ways like Wolverine. She is pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation. Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

There are a few different things he wanted in this score. One of them was a simple minimalist idea, which is the piano thing at the beginning, for Logan, which is because, you know, heís on his own, but also to set up the mystery. Youíre not really sure whatís going to happen. So I persuaded that. When I started on this, Mangold played me some scores and he encouraged me to listen to some scores, like Taxi Driver, which he liked a lot. And the first thing I did was try something like Taxi Driver, but it didnít quite have the right feel. But that was what I was trying to capture, was some of that intensity. So, youíre right, there is a minimalist feel in certain areas, which allowed me to explore in different areas. Thereís definitely western overtones to the picture and to the score itself. Not in a traditional manner with orchestration or anything, but yeah, definitely. I think that every score I do is a Western. Maybe the homage elements lend itself a little bit to the feel of that. That alone hero type of thing, which is something I use a little bit sparsely throughout the score, but itís also processed, in certain respects.
