X-Men: The Last Stand

X-Men: The Last Stand
The final in X-Men trilogy, based on the mutant characters from the most popular comic of the last couple of decades. And, it's the first not to be directed by Bryan Singer who's off doing the new Superman movie.

A mutant "cure" has been developed. Now our mutant friends have for the first time, a choice between retaining their uniqueness which alienates them, or giving up their powers and become normal, respectable human beings. The opposing viewpoints of rival leaders Charles Xavier (Stewart), who preaches tolerance, and Magneto (McKellen), who believes in the survival of the fittest, are put to the ultimate test - triggering the war to end all wars. Jean Grey's back from the dead also.

If it is, in fact, a last stand for the X-folk then it's probably best.

Given the amount of action and life-changing events which occur in X-Men: The Last Stand, you'd expect to feel more moved. But this third outing for the spandex-clad mutant superheroes and villains is surprisingly short of real emotion. X-Men 2 is regarded by many fans as one of the best comicbook movies ever made. This sequel is tidy but uninspiring, despite a storyline which deals with the invention of a controversial 'cure' for mutant-kind...

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.

I went to this film with X-Men buffs and while they were scoffing and fidgeting in their seats I was quite enjoying myself. If you take this as another episode in the film trilogy instead of an X-Men movie then you should enjoy it too.

It was interesting how they used the new characters more than some already established ones but at the same...
