The visuals on the first film are breath-taking. We first meet the famous Wolverine at a bar cage-fighting, being carefully watched by a teenage runaway, Rogue. Under the hard-core image of Wolverine, their appears to be a soft side to him when he is with Rogue. When the villan Magneto, who turns into an aly in the second film, kidnaps Rogue, Wolverine, Xavier and the team go out to look for her. If your a fan of Rogue or turn into one, at the end you get a scare. All-in-all, this movie is really good. With the movie's success the well-known actors, such as child-star Anna Paquin, Aussie Hugh Jackman, the beautiful Halle Berry and Star-Trek's Patrick Stuart, in this will have a long career ahead of them.
X Men United (X2)surpassed the first one. There are a lot of cool special effects, new characters, and the story line is very good. You should buy this movie. By the way, pay attention to Wolverine and Pyro. He has a serious attitude problem.
And now for Part 3, well it may be the Last Stand but apparently the spinoffs regarding Magneto,and Wolverine are still in the offing.Much maligned by critics but the expectations were high too. I personally loved it.
The extras are the best bit of the X Men DVDs and the character profiles save you from browsing the Net or looking for some dusty Marvel mag.Recommended at all costs.
