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.

X-Men Trilogy is a great combo pack in a Blu-ray format. With this combo pack you get the original first three x-men movies ( X-Men, X2, and X-Men: The Last Stand). If you are not familiar with these films I have included a quick summary of each movie.

- X-Men is a 2000 Co-written and directed by Bryan Singer, the film stars Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Famke Janssen, Bruce Davison, James Marsden, Halle Berry, Rebecca Romijn, Ray Park and Tyler Mane. It depicts a world in which a small proportion of people are mutants, whose possession of superhuman powers makes them distrusted by normal humans. The film focuses on the mutants Wolverine and Rogue as they are brought into a conflict between two groups that have radically different approaches to bringing about the acceptance of mutantkind: Professor Xavier's X-Men, and the Brotherhood of Mutants, led by Magneto.

X2 is a 2003 American superhero film, based on the fictional characters the X-Men. Directed by Bryan Singer, and stars Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Alan Cumming, Famke Janssen, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Aaron Stanford, Brian Cox, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, James Marsden, Halle Berry and Kelly Hu. The plot, inspired by the graphic novel God Loves, Man Kills, pits the X-Men and their enemies, the Brotherhood, against the genocidal Colonel William Stryker (Brian Cox). He leads an assault on Professor Xavier's school to build his own version of Xavier's mutant-tracking computer Cerebro, in order to destroy every mutant on Earth.

X-Men: The Last Stand is a 2006 American superhero film that was directed by Brett Ratner and stars Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great transfers, two great films and a good one 28 May 2009
By Mr. Blu
Format:Blu-ray
Congratulations Amazon for deleting the 1 star review from someone who seemed to have bought a pirate copy on a Chinese market stall before the official release! The films all have superb picture quality, especially X-Men 2. And the sound quality is superb across the range with the last film even stretching to a 6.1 HD soundtrack. It would be nice to see more releases in 7.1 HD formats, but I appreciate the effort to improve beyond 5.1 at least.

My favourite film will always be the first, the best plotted, with the firmest grip on tempo and plot. The last film is a little diffuse although not without its good moments, but at times it seems to try and pack too much in, at times it lumbers along somewhat. X-Men 2 is literally in the middle, much better plotted than "The Last Stand" but maybe a little overlong.

The film also has great extras. It's a shame to hear that some customers have had compatability problems, because a lot of the best stuff is Profile 1.1 and shouldn't overtax many players. The picture in picture options are great where you can, for example, watch a mini-docu about the making-of while watching the scene in question. Great value, great BD quality, and two pretty great films. "The Last Stand" suffers from the curse of the second sequel felt by so many recent film series. It happened to Spiderman, it happened to Pirates of the Caribbean"; our prayers are with Christopher Nolan....
