I've been pleased with the X-Men series overall, and X-Men United is a fitting end to the trilogy. The plot is a bit far-fetched - Jean Grey being an all-powerful super mutant - but it does up the ante (including one memorable death scene). My only complaint is that I wish it had been longer - it seems as if the film is rushed in only 100 minutes. Otherwise, if you liked the first two, you'll love this one.

Short changes it's characters in a bad way and introduces some we don't care about but does take the "mutant civil rights" issue onto the screen in a way that makes sense to be the analogy of real world issues that X Men is supposed to be.

I have seen all the movies that have been put out by Marvel over the last 6 years or so and was never a big fan of the X-Men films though the first 2 were passable. This movie has way too many characters in it! Some of the characters are pathetic looking such as the Juggernaut and The Beast (who looks and sounds like they dyed a gorilla costume from the Planet of the Apes movies). They waited to the last installment to introduce The Beast and the Angel who were original X-Men in the comics (X-Men …

'X-men,' I thought reading reviews, would be like a high-tech sci-fi "Calvin Ball". That is I thought the evolution of the movie's rules and causality would change by whim. Instead, we get a "rock/ paper/ scissors" approach. Each superhero has their own connecting powers, like one has fire and another has ice. In this installment, the mutants find there is a cure for their powers, which some make into a crusade, others a curse. There is a societal divide; one that breaks out with signs and protestors, …

My husband and I love the first two installments of X-Men. We were in a Stuff Mart over the weekend, and I suggested buying X-Men 3. My husband asked "Are you *sure*?" I replied "Well, we loved the first two installments. With Jean Grey returing as The Phoenix, it should be great!"    We watched it last night and were stunned. We were both silent--in shock--at the end of the movie.     SPOILER ALERT: Phoenix--resurrected Jean Grey--ends up killing Cyclops …

Fans gasped when it was announced that X-MEN and X2 director Bryan Singer was leaving X-MEN III to make SUPERMAN RETURNS - and he was taking his crew with him. Singer told 20th Century Fox that, if they would wait until he completed SUPERMAN RETURNS, he would make X-MEN III as well. Fox decided to go ahead without Singer, bringing numerous directors on to the project before settling on Brett Ratner. This worried fans ever more, as they realized that Ratner's previous films included RUSH HOUR, MONEY …
