In addition to being the most overstuffed with plodding exposition of the three original "X-Men" films, "Last Stand" has also been the one most affected by time.

This movie fails at everything like killing off Patrick Stewart and getting rid off mystique powers. The movie has good visual effect's and some action scenes was well shot and well put to place.

Favors action over story this time. Main themes from the previous two films are followed through with and most of the ongoing character relationships get resolved, but it's a less satisfying conclusion than I'd hoped. The newly introduced mutants are forgettable - minus the stellar standout of Beast. The Phoenix story could've been handled better. The mutant cure plot was very much in line with the dramatic tone of the series and gave much more weight to an otherwise routine sequel. As an X-Men fan, I still enjoyed this outing for what it was. Doesn't deserve the amount of hate it has gathered over time, but I do agree with most of the negative criticisms.

Not all big budgeted films usually come out great. This reviewer recalls not enjoying the film since it was all action and lacks charm and depth compared to the previous 2 installments. There was a cure discovered to benefit the mutants. This premise alone spells disaster for the franchise. Magneto (Ian McKellen) forms an army consisting of Jean Grey / Phoenix (Famke Janssen), Mystique (Rebecca Romijn), Pyro (Aaron Stanford), Juggernaut and Multiple Man. Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and the X-Men, led by Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Storm (Halle Berry) and Cyclops (James Marsden) try to stop Magneto's attacks. Screenplay was not as enticing as X2 and lacked proper character development due to the overloaded characters. If only the Phoenix storyline was more focused. …

When a research facility produces a "cure" for mutants, they find that they must choose sides in a war of ideologies between Magneto and the X-Men. I f**king hated this film when it came out. I have been a fan of the X-Men for more years than I care to admit to, and the Dark Phoenix saga is possibly THE classic X-Men story and to see this bastardised version of it caused a short circuit in my cerebral cortex. I still have a lot of problems with it; there are some serious lapses in logic, the plot has holes you could fly the Golden Gate bridge through and Vinnie Jones is still abysmal as Juggernaut. By far the biggest problem with it though is the dismissive way it treats its protagonists; it introduces large numbers of dispensible, second rate characters to use as cannon fodder (often …

The worst of the three x-men movies easily. The are several problems within it. The first is the story, Both stories dark phoenix and a cure have potential but they are poorly realized. Neither story is given the attention needed for a good story, they do not interact well and they both stay oddly separated. The stories only interact once and it does not really accomplish anything. It basically goes heres this part, oh wait now back to the other. It is very poorly done. Another problem here is like many bad sequels there are too many characters. This causes many big characters in the comics to be thrown away, and it also causes many characters to have too little screen time. Also in an attempt to make it an ending I guess. They kill off many characters, in many poor ways. There is not …
