Product Description

Box set containing all three films from the hugely popular 'X-Men' film franchise based on the long-running Marvel comic strip. In 'X-Men' (2000), mutants Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) are former friends, but look set to become mortal enemies when fascistic US senator Robert Frank Kelly (Bruce Davison) calls for the registration of all humans with abnormal powers. While telepath Xavier, who runs an altruistic academy for superhuman 'X-Men', wishes to enlighten non-mutants and break down the prejudices which divide them, Magneto believes that the only solution is for the mutants to take over. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) - an aggressive loner with an admantium skeleton and the ability to heal his body of any wound - and teenager Rogue (Anna Paquin), who can absorb the life force of others simply by touching them, are selected by Xavier to join his academy, but it isn't long before Magneto's followers are attempting to capture them so that they can assist in his plan for world domination. In 'X-Men 2' (2003), Professor Charles Xavier, Wolverine, and the Academy for Gifted Youngsters, aka the X-Men, find themselves in the firing line after a failed assasination attempt on the President points the finger at the school. It was in fact the mysterious teleporter Nightwalker (Alan Cumming) who ordered it, and, in an attempt to clear their names, the X-Men are led into a trap set by the evil William Stryker (Brian Cox) - a mysterious scientist apparently working for the government. As it soon becomes evident that Stryker's agenda is to destroy all mutants, the X-Men need to call in the help of many of their old friends and foe, including Magneto (McKellen), if they are to stop him. In 'X-Men 3: The Last Stand' (2006), when a private laboratory supported by the government finds the cure for the mutants, using the DNA of a powerful boy, the mutants have the option of giving up their powers and becoming human. However, Magneto (McKellen) opposes and decides to join a force to fight against the government and kill the mutant boy. Meanwhile, Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) resurrects uncontrolled by Xavier and with the personality of the powerful Dark Phoenix. She destroys Cyclops (James Marsden) and Xavier, and allies to the evil forces of Magneto, making them almost invincible.

4.0 out of 5 stars X-Men: Trilogy? 17 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
When I first saw X-Men I was pretty impressed and held off buying the DVD of it because I was aware a sequel would be made. The thing is thou I was always under the impression that X-Men wasn't a trilogy. It's true that the sequel were only made because the first film was a success right?

So if like me your fairly convinced that the box only says 'Trilogy' on as a sort of vague marketing campaign, you might be pleased to find out that the movies are closer connected than previously thought (at least by me).

'SLIGHT SPOILERS'

For people who've enjoyed the first XMEN movie, its good to hear the DVD version included is an uncut version... well sort of. Actually the truth is you can watch the film with deleted scenes cut back in. This means that unlike famous re-cuts such as Apocalypse Now REDUX or Blade Runner, the film isn't a new version. Its the same, except frequently a short scene will play through. Needless to say it isn't seamless, the added clips often mean you'll have to watch parts of the film twice not a lot of the film, but its noticeable), also the new scenes are darker than the rest of the film and some special effects don't look quite up to standard.
This is all fine, you can still view the film without these scenes, but by doing to you find out so interesting stuff, that had it been left in, would have made the three films more of a Trilogy (!) rather than just a set of films. For example, in one deleted scene Rouge (a mutant character who can't touch other people's skin without harming them) asks if the professor can cure her. This scene is cut, however, it's interesting to keep in mind that Rouge does eventually opt to be cured in the 3rd film. Its a real shame that this scene and other examples like it aren't left in the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended at all costs 14 April 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Winner 29 April 2009
By Pimpus
Format:Blu-ray
I bought the X-Men trilogy on Blu-Ray after reading a review which gave it one star. The reviewer stated that a good upscaled DVD would be about the same quality. Not true. I also have the trilogy on DVD.
I have watched all three films and the transfers are nothing short of X-cellent (forgive me ;-). The pictures are pin sharp and the DTS Master Audio soundtrack is top notch.
My favourite of the three films is X-Men 2. The opening action scene looks the business, the best of all of the super hero genre of films in my humble opinion.
I have yet to watch the bonus features discs. The box set i purchased has 3 of them.
I consider this box set to be great value for money and a must for all action hero fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-Men Trilogy 20 April 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Firstly, the films. The first X-Men has often been credited with reviving the superhero genre which hadn't been seen properly since the 80s and early 90s, courtesy of the Richard Donner/Richard Lester 'Superman' films and Tim Burton's 'Batman' films. Some say Blade is the reason we now see at least one superhero film released each year, but really Blade wasn't mainstream enough due to its higher rating (despite being an extremely entertaining film). No, if you trace it back, the first of the mainstream superhero films of this generation was probably X-Men. And it's definitely a quality film, focusing largely on character and setting up the motivations, relationships and tensions of the main characters, with a decent (but not great) collection of action sequences. As a story it works very well, and as an intro to the series it's one of the better ones around, but you get the distinct feeling something more is coming.

X-Men 2 (or X2 as it was marketed) delivers on the promise of the original. Without sacrificing story or character development, it adds stunning action and some great twists into what was at the time one of the best superhero films ever made. In fact, until The Dark Knight was released, it was difficult for me to decide which was the best superhero film: Spider-Man 2 or X-Men 2. Really, this film does have it all.

X-Men: The Last Stand is generally regarded as disappointing by many of the fans, but I think the criticism is a bit exaggerated. I agree, it's certainly not as good as what came before it. However, there's enough action and comedy on show to engage, even if The Dark Phoenix Saga isn't given enough time to be developed properly. That really is the main problem with the film; action is successful at the expense of the story.
