I cannot wait for this to come out. There are so many new characters from the comics. I get my updates at xmenfilms.net
The 2nd movie is much better than the first and actually is more in the flavor of what the first movie should have been. The third looks good also. I would rather the producers take their time and produce a good show then get into the James Bond or Star Trek rut where only every other movie was any good.
At last, from the previews it appears that Henry McCoy (Beast) finally shows up.
They beat the pants off the real clunker hero movies like The Hulk and FF and Daredevil. Movies like Batman Beyond or Unbreakable or Spiderman II had much more character depth.
For a non-reader or recent/casual reader, they're probably pretty enjoyable and the action is fun. Really depends on your taste. They're a good introduction to X-Men if you haven't read the books.
Personally, I find the possibility of X-Men movies interesting, but I've only watched each of them once before being bored, and the trailer for X3 said NOTHING about the movie or gave me anything interesting to go on (except for the nefarious insinuation of Jean Grey coming back as Phoenix... but that was a given from the end of X2). I'm not inclined to see it.
Sniff. I miss Colossus.
Alrighty everyone who's a fan of X Men (me :teeth)!!!
:cheer :yay TODAY IS THE RELEASE DATE!!! :cheer :yay
I can't wait to see it.
I saw it. It's lost of twists and turns that you really wouldn't expect to happen. Fans of the comic won't like it.
It's almost like the comic has been thrown out the window and they thought up anything to suprise us.
There was a junior novelization at Borders, which I picked up two weeks ago. It was basically the entire movie, so I spoiled myself. I wasn't thinking and Argh!
I was really disappointed with the writing. The characters we've come to know and love (or hate) were taken in ridiculous directions. And the "new" characters were not fully developed. Visually this movie was pretty cool but the storyline sucked in a major way.
