    Awesome movie! Its PG-13 so the little one's might want to sit this one out. The movie stays true to the characters. Comic book reader will really be able to understand the character motives and choices but its not a hard plot to follow so fear not if you are new to the story line. Its a good start for the summer movies and this one has it all. Action, drama, thrills and chills and some love interest its all there. So get there earlier because there is gonna be lines to see this one and enjoy the movie with friends or loved ones. Make absolutely sure you stay for the end credits because there is some bonus footage right after. I give it 4**** out of 5. Enjoy :thup:

    I also enjoyed to watch this movie, it was great.

    One question : in the trailer, and during the promotion of the movie, Angel was showed a lot. But he appears only a few minutes, and his role is small (except the fact that he decides his father to find the "vaccination"). i was quite disappointed for this.
    But the movie is great, so, watch it ; )

    Didn't like it as much as the first two. I read the comics back in the seventies and eighties and the movies tried to compress em too much imo.

    Yea there is always gonna be some changes to the characters when it comes to a movie format. But all in all the writing and editing team did a good job taking what they could from the characters and making it a entertaining movie. From what I heard this will be the last X-Men movie. So they had to bring some type of close-sure to the series. I heard that Huge will be back to play Wolverine in a character spin off project. So we will have to see if any X-Men will appear in those movies.

    This one had some inconsistencies from the 2nd which is by far the best one of the 3. Storm IMO turned out to be the dominate character even over Wolverine. I certainly was not happy with the "body count" on one side. Of course, the 30 second scene at the very end of the credits could open things up for a fourth.

    Which they didn't do.

    Magneto is getting his powers back and Prof. X isn't dead.

    Those two things at the end kind of ruined the feel of the movie for me. I went in knowing they were going to kill off a lot of characters, but I decided that would be ok since this was supposidly the last movie and they didn't want to have an open-ended ending. So much for that...

    But I suppose killing people off is sort of a necessary evil if you want to grow existing characters and introduce new ones given how big the X-Men universe is.

    P.S. Juggernaut should've been bigger.

    P.P.S. Juggernaut isn't a mutant, he gets his powers from a magical red stone. :funnyface

    I haven't seen this (I haven't seen the first two!), but what a lot of people are saying is this one is inferior because of the change of directors. Bryan Singer directed the first two, which were, I've been told many times, two of the best superhero movies ever. Alas, he left to do the new Superman movie. So instead they got Brett Ratner, known big stupid action movies that make money (Into the Sunset, Rush Hour). So, a lot of people have been saying that this one's not as good because he can't really handle three dimensional characters too well, but the action will be better. True?

    PS: I read a quote from Brett Ratner that went something to this effect: "[Bryan Singer] was a huge fan of the comics, and he went through and incorporated huge parts of the story. My approach was to scan through the books and just pick out stuff that looked cool." I really hate his personality, but Rush Hour did make me laugh.
