X3 IS 3X THE FUN I am awed that director Brett Ratner knows movies, how the elements should blend, what cinematic entertainment is all about. As a nod to his predecessor Bryan Singer nothing wrong there , he took the best elements from Singer's storyboard, and combined these with his own beliefs about what a real X-Men movie should be.More than an action movie, his X3 had emotional depth and literary tightness, plus movie clarity, character development, superb visuals, excellent timing.There were many highlights: the Juggernaut/Shadowcat chase scene, Phoenix vs. Professor X, the <more>
Building-a-Bridge scene, Wolverine vs. Spike, the Danger Room scene, Beast in Battle, Angel in Flight, and the climactic scene with Jean and Logan.I am impressed by the script logic. i.e. how Professor X explained the origin of the Phoenix phenomenon.I enjoyed Halle Berry here more than in the past two films. She is a stronger woman here with fine leadership qualities. Hugh Jackman's character Wolverine shines throughout the movie. Mr. Jackman is the best thing to happen to Hollywood action since Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones.The only thing I didn't appreciate was Famke Janssen's makeup as Dark Phoenix. The cosmetics was meant more for the role of Regan in an Exorcist remake.There was emotional resonance in X3, without the need for corn. I cried twice while watching the film. Several X-Men died here, whose names I can't tell you for the sake of the element of surprise.Congratulations, Mr. Ratner. Terrific juggling act. It was definitive MOVIE MAGIC.X1 was a 9.5. X2 was a 9. X3 is a 10.
Last night at midnight, I went to see X-Men: The Last Stand with a bunch of friends because we were big fans of the comics and the first 2 films. All I can really say is that this film did not hold entirely true to the original comics, but that is definitely not a bad thing. This film had a lot of character development with just about every character and the story was told with such fast pace that you were never bored at all. I honestly think that this film is better than the previous two and Brett Ratner should be commended for his work. As a film major, I understand how difficult it is for <more>
a director to take over a project to make it his own after one or two other people have already tried to make it their own, but Ratner did a great job. I think the real question is "Will there be a fourth film?" because the ending really gets you thinking. Overall, this is a great film.
I had the pleasure of watching this film yesterday, and all I can say is wow...I'm a big fan of comics and more often then not disappointed when comic characters are put on the big screen. This was not the case with this franchise and X3 continues where X2 left off.I guess if you want to be anal you can search for things to change but as a whole this movie delivers, considering it had big shoes to fill after X2.Enjoy it, it's well worth the time and money and definitely needs the big screen experience. Maybe after watching it a second time and can look for flaws or critics.There are <more>
twists, turns and surprises so see it ASAP so no one spoils anything...Would be a shame to learn too much about this movie before seeing it.
A Nutshell Review: X-Men: The Last Stand (by DICK STEEL)
As always, you get the beef here - stay tuned until the end of the credits for one small scene which will probably put a smile to your face. Don't say I didn't warn ya! Oh and as usual with good Marvel movies, watch out for Stan Lee too! The X-Men movies did one thing which I thought was almost impossible to do for the movies, and that is to massage the multi-characters' egos into one feature length film within reasonable screen time. Kudos are necessary for Bryan Singer and his team for pulling the original X-Men off, then top it with X2, beating odds that sequels generally suck, <more>
what with bigger sets, action, and horrors, even more characters! With Singer's departure for another summer movie this year, the grand daddy of superheroes, Superman, the X-Men franchise was temporarily put into development hell, and was left directionless. Having its stars ask for more money and a bigger role, was natural too. But I'm glad that these issues were resolved and director Brett Ratner took on the thankless task of adding a rudder to steer a fitting last movie of a trilogy will there be more? Hmm.... And I'm glad to announce it's the best summer movie so far, one which surpassed my expectations, which probably was low to begin with. It had a decent storyline which is a direct continuation from X2, and had bleak moments interspersed throughout the movie. A cure has been found, extracted from a fellow mutant boy, which the humans offer to the mutants to become normal again. But just what is normal? Herein lies the ra-ra themes like you-are-who-you-are, stay-true-to-yourself etc. But it doesn't bog down the pace of the movie, not quite, especially since most will be in it for the action. And it's always human tendency to want to weaponize anything for that advantage over our enemies. We come in peace? Hell yeah :P There are again plenty of set action pieces, some of which will disappoint, like the beginning which somewhat reeked from a bad Terminator setting, but on the other end of the spectrum, the Grey House battle is the best amongst all, beating even the finale. It's full of concurrent action, tense moments, loads of special effects with a dash of character development. The finale battle was cool look out for the Iceman teaser , but I thought it was a bit of a letdown with its major continuity error with the cars on the bridge. Not surprisingly, having Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry's names headlining the marquee, Wolverine as always, the most popular X-character and Storm had more leadership roles in this sequel. But, and no offense to the fans, it seemed that Wolverine's solo action sequence was a bit ordinary, like watching a scene from Mortal Kombat. If there's gonna be a movie spin off, show off more slicing and dicing, up the violence a little and slap it with some rating. But with the focus on the 2 main leads, as well as The Beast, little attention is paid towards Magneto and his brotherhood then again, we need not have much introduction and can afford diving straight in , and fans of Mystique will be disappointed with the diminished role, as do other characters like Rogue, Cyclops and new kid on the block Angel really cosmetic if you ask me . The Phoenix was introduced to great fanfare, and it made a bit more sense without the fusion of that outer space element from the comics. This story-arc is the main pivot, and it was a fantastic scene in the beginning to witness the camaraderie between Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr, before they became bitter enemies. I'd tip my hat too to the little moments of acknowledgement and admiration one has for the other, despite being on opposites. All in all, it was very much enjoyable, and I'm sure fans of the movie franchise will agree it's a fitting end to the trilogy, though it hinted the option of making a fourth, and the more lucrative potential of solo character spin offs.
I got the chance to see it at the a charity screening here in Sydney Australia on the 22nd and i must say it is worth seeing if you've seen the last two or are a huge fan of the comics. Although it doesn't deserve full stars because it does lack quite a bit in the film. For one, fans who were hoping to see bigger roles out of character such as Professor Xavier, Colossus, cyclops or Iceman I'm afraid to tell you that they're under used in this great film. The story is great but Brett Ratner wasn't very good at achieving it as we see the film is very fast paced in the first <more>
half of the movie, no time to stop and take in everything that just happened, However the second half slowed down a lot allowing fans a little thinking time to keep up with whats happening and the special effects are much better than the last two. My personal problem was once again huge Jackman aka Wolverine hogged the light for almost 60% of the film followed by Halley berry aka storm who had some scenes i personally thought were unnecessary and could've been good for other characters. Ian McKellen didn't seem as convincing as magneto as he did in the last two, I mean he still had the personality but during the fights he seemed a bit lazy, he seemed out of time with the special effects. i won't go on but i recommend to all fans to see, by the way theirs only two words i guess you could say are swear word and no sex scenes for any one who's been wanting to know.
An X-tremely Magnificent Instant Classic (by tripxyde)
This is the final installment to what is now known as the X-MEN Trilogy. Known as the "Children of the Atom" and the children of human evolution, MUTANTS have become widespread throughout the globe. But a "cure" for being a mutant was unveiled and this puts into motion the war between the radical mutants who seek to overthrow mankind which has shown mutant community the extent of human prejudice, and the X-men, a mutant group who would stand to defend humanity from mutants who would use their powers to threaten the rest of the defenseless human society.When the comics <more>
series "X-men" was first conceived back in the 1960's by Marvel comics' father, living legend, Stan Lee which makes an appearance in this film , it was to become one of the most profound comic book sagas, that which is way ahead of its time. Mutants have become a metaphor for the kinds of people who have become victims of prejudice, alienation, and fear. May it be because of race, culture, sex, appearance, religion, or even physical characteristics, whether that characteristic may be a deformity or not. Mutants are feared for what they can do, alienated for what they appear to be, and hated simply for what they are. Not only that; in the U.S., the term "Mutant" has been a slang term used to defame and demean those who are different and those who don't fit in with the rest of society.Right now, we live in a world wherein equality must prevail, even though factors like terrorist paranoia and biological threats continues to exist, there must be an undying movement for equality. With the cultural and technological advancements of the new millennium making the world smaller for us all, equality and tolerance must exist, because division and inequality might threaten to destroy us all.One of this film's subplots involves a "cure" for being a mutant. In one way or another, the storyline subliminally raises the question; "Would you resort to change or alter yourself just to fit in to the rest of society, assuming that your uniqueness is never really a deformity or an abnormality?" Metaphorically, it could be like asking questions such as "If given a chance, would an Asian try to alter his looks just to look Caucasian or maybe less ethnic? If given a chance, would a homosexual alter his/her sexuality just for the sake of fitting in?" More or less, it could even make us think of our opinions on plastic surgery or playing god with the advances of technology? The film subliminally opens your mind up from the metaphors and to relevant social issues.After the ending of the trilogy's second episode, entitled "X-2: X-Men United", it is inevitable and understandable to those familiar with the X-men series that what will happen next is what is known as the "Phoenix saga" which is the storyline wherein Jean Grey is resurrected into the twisted character known as The Dark Phoenix. But it is quite obvious, from the trailers and the publicity of the film, that the main villain in the third installment of the trilogy still is Magneto, and that this third will obviously become the grand finale of Magneto's great war that he wishes to rage and has been talking about ever since the first film. And that the Dark Phoenix storyline is smartly blended along with the Magneto storyline, among other subplots yet to be revealed. But understandably, the film is designed to be a blockbuster big-explosion/big-stunts action bonanza, so understandably, the stunts, the actions, and the special effects would take the front seat in making this film a classic.Looking back months ago, it was hard to imagine a director like Brett Ratner, whose credits include the mediocre "Red Dragon" and the popcorn flicks "Rush Hour" 1 & 2, to take on what was Bryan Singer's job of breathing life into what is the greatest superhero team saga in comics' history. Thankfully, for all of us, this third X-men movie stays true to the mood, tone, and overall continuity and consistency with the first two films. With the last X-men movie etching itself to be one of the best superhero movies of all time, this sequel never lets down to shine much more and manages to rise into a new level of cinematic high.However, in one way or another, the film may tend to rely on the idea that the viewer has either watched the two other X-men films, and/or is also familiar with the entire X-men mythos; From the characters, to their powers, to their capabilities and convictions. Not unless you are familiar with such information, you should open your ears and hear out each and every important detail of the storyline.The film's superpower action is very inventive, never redundant and is way ahead of falling off the cliché hook. Its script and storyline stretches itself far from being predictable. You may consider yourself familiar with the numerous popular X-men story lines, but even that will still less likely exempt you from the film's jaw-dropping surprises; moments in this film which, I'm sure that you will agree with me when I say, that it happens more than once. In addition, I would advice for you not to leave the theater after the end credits because there is a bonus extra scene. A perfectly satisfying epilogue for this final chapter.X-MEN: The Last Stand is this summer's juggernaut blockbuster sci-fi-action-adventure megamovie! A never miss! It is a comic nerd's wet-dream come true! A definite superhero saga movie to end all superhero sagas. Up to this date, the Holy Grail of superhero team movies; An X-traordinarily Superior X-perience! X-citingly X-terminating all X-pectations! This is X-MEN: THE LAST STAND
I was able to catch a preview of this film on May 18. I am a huge X-Men fan and was reading earlier buzz about this film's shortcomings from other critics. I was very surprised at this film's quality. This film was very good especially for a third installment. I would venture to say this film was my favorite of the three, narrowly beating out X-Men United. I felt there would be a lot of confusion in tying in Magneto and Dark Phoenix but the story was very coherent. I also felt like Halle did a little better in this installment, considering better powers and better writing. The action <more>
scenes were great, especially in Jean's house. I was pleased to see them stay faithful to certain scenes in the Dark Phoenix Saga comic. The other "bit-part" mutants were not as annoying as I'd anticipated, as some of them actually were very impressive. I was very impressed with this film's "shockers" and unpredictability. Some things I definitely did not see coming. While not the perfect experience everyone hopes for, it was still well-made and should satisfy the X-Men fan base. Good story, great fights, great special effects, true to some of the comic stuff, great unpredictability, annoying Pyro. 'Nuff said.
Okay. Before I saw this movie, I had read numerous reviews on it. Some said that it was bad. Some said said that it was good. I had to make my own assumption. After seeing it, I can honestly say I loved X-Men The Last Stand. Yes the story was kinda simple and the characters weren't as fleshed out as in the other two X-Men movies, but it was great nonetheless. It did have some other downsides to it. The main one I think was that it didn't follow the comic book closely. But don't be nitpicking the entire movie otherwise you're not going to have a fun time. Just go there and <more>
watch the movie. It also left way for maybe a sequel or two I'm not going to spoil anything. Just watch after the credits . It was a fitting end to this X-men trilogy.
This movie was good, but a little disappointing (by Movieguy_blogs_com)
In 'X-Men: The Last Stand' a 'cure' has been developed to inhibit the x-gene that causes mutations in Homo sapiens. This, in essence has the ability to turn Homo superiors mutants into Homo sapiens. The development in this inhibitor all hinges on extracting it from the mutant Leech Cameron Bright . While some mutants are encouraged by the 'cure', most are not. Magneto Ian McKellen is dead set on destroying it by any means necessary. Right or wrong, the X-men have to stop him before he unleashes his army.This movie was good, but a little disappointing. I like that <more>
we get a glimpse of the Sentinels. They take some artistic license with the comic plot line, which is to be expected, but they did a lot of things I did not like. There are casualties I am not going to say who that make no sense and some of the character portrayals were also disappointing.Most did really well. I really liked Storm Halle Berry , Kitty Pryde Ellen Page , and Beast Kelsey Grammar . I did not like Rouge Anna Paquin , Pyro Aaron Stanford , Callisto Dania Ramirez , and Phoenix Famke Janssen . This film has been promoting the emergence of the Phoenix, yet she really does not do anything.
