X-Men: The Last Stand
I was lucky enough to get to a preview of this. I was a semi-fan of the first two. I feel it's the weakest, but still holds up in the trilogy. It has less intrigue with its characters, their development is stalled or boring. The action sequences though are first rate, as good as any in the first two. Peace.
It was interesting how they used the new characters more than some already established ones but at the same time, the new characters weren't really developed much either.
The effects were wicked and I was fully impressed with them yet... More again. My only complaint was that when Wolverine was getting his clothes and skin blown off, his pants weren't even touched!!!
In the end, my companion agreed that it was a good film as long as he didn't think about the comics too much.Hide
The main dissapointment I found while watching was the excitment element was missing. The first two films also had afew downfalls but atleast while watching there were moments where you had that childlike excitement ing on, like when you were a kid watching teh cartoon for the first time and you sat there thinking "This is so cool".
Don't get me wrong there was some really cool stuff... More and there was alot of really cheesy shit. I just think they rushed this one, with more time spent on the script and character deveolpment (especially introducing the new characters) they could have done a better job. There were so many occasions where I was wondering why that character was there or where another character went(scoot for example) and what the hell whappened to Rogue? I mean she never really did much before but she did even less here.
i hope part four will take it's time coming out.Hide
