The first superhero movie that didn't suck. This movie had pretty good visual effect's and Hugh JackMan played the wolverine so well nobody can't replace him.

The main problem with X-Men is that it spreads its characters too thin. By featuring a cast of mutants, it doesn't allow the core characters to become too developed and, thus, the series lacks the emotional depth of the recent Batman films, for instance. At least, however, Bryan Singer knows how to direct action and these sequences are impressive and exciting.

Had bits of good character development for Wolverine, Magneto, and Rogue, yet wanting more from the rest. If only First class and this first film combined, it could have been perfect. Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart brings their realistic acting prowess here. The special effects, direction and set pieces were stunning. I felt that X-Men 2 and First Class had the best story, though the screenplay here was not bad. The action was present and themes of acceptance and individuality was present. X-Men was a good beginning to a franchise enjoyed by people who are comic lovers or just fans of sci-fi.

The skill and craft comes through as interactions and expressions that are powerful within themselves, but the dialogue still shines with humour and keen intellect. The characters are colourful, with the irony of the black and white circulating around. It certainly blurs between the emphasis of both groups and it is difficult to understand who is right. As there is a variety of characters, there is always a particular one who stands out, mine being …

Bryan Singer's first attempt at the seemingly impossible task of bringing X-Men to the silver screen, like Tim Burton's original Batman before it, was something of a heroic failure. I was a huge fan and collector of X-Men comics as a teen, but I think trying to cram 37 years of X-Lore into one film would've been impossible and any script writer trying to do so would be insane. So what we have is a rather diluted and superficial summarization instead. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellern were obvious choices for their parts and their scenes together are of course, quality. In fact the opening scene set during the holocaust is easily the best and sets up Magneto's character and motivations perfectly. I have to say Hugh Jackman made a pretty good fist of Wolverine too, and the political …
