Product Description

X-Men 1.5

From Amazon.co.uk

Although the superhero comic book has been a duopoly since the early 1960s, only DC's flagship characters, Superman and Batman (who originated in the late 1930s), have established themselves as big-screen franchises. Until now--this is the first runaway hit film version of the alternative superhero X-Men universe created for Marvel Comics by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and others. It's a rare comic-book movie that doesn't fall over its cape introducing all the characters, and this is the exception. X-Men drops us into a world that is closer to our own than Batman's Gotham City, but it's still home to super-powered goodies and baddies.

Opening in high seriousness with paranormal activity in a WW2 concentration camp and a senatorial inquiry into the growing "mutant problem", Bryan Singer's film sets up a complex background with economy and establishes vivid, strange characters well before we get to the fun. There's Halle Berry flying and summoning snowstorms, James Marsden zapping people with his "optic beams", Rebecca Romijn-Stamos shape-shifting her blue naked form and Ray Park lashing out with his Toad-tongue.

The big conflict is between Patrick Stewart's Professor X and Ian McKellen's Magneto, super-powerful mutants who disagree about their relationship with ordinary humans, but the characters we're meant to identify with are Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Anna Paquin's Rogue. There are in-jokes enough to keep comics fans engaged, but it feels more like a science-fiction movie than a superhero picture. --Kim Newman

On the DVD: X-Men 1.5's two-disc set offers little more than the original X-Men release. The six extended scenes which can be incorporated into the feature on Disc 1 were already available on the initial DVD version (though they're cleaned up a bit here), and when played within the film's original cut they seem disjointed and tacked on, adding very little to the overall story.

Disc 2, meanwhile, will have little appeal to any but the most diehard of fans. The X-Men 2 Sneak Peak, the X-Men 2 trailer, the Daredevil trailer and the Activision Wolverine's Revenge trailer are little more than adverts. The four-part documentary, meanwhile, is impressively interactive (with multi-angle segments and two play modes), but unfortunately it's also a bit dull and self-congratulatory. --Robert Burrow --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars **** VERSION 1.5 **** 24 April 2003
By Mr. N. Carnegie HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
As most of the world knows by now, X-Men is the live-action version of the of the Marvel comic strip, directed by Bryan Singer (of the Usual Suspects fame). Set in the not too distant future the X-Men are humans who thanks to genetic mutation have inherited special powers. A box office hit back in 2000 taking in over $157m at the US box office alone, 2003 sees the sequel imaginatively titled X-Men 2 hit our cinema screens and as something of a pre-cursor the X-Men DVD has been repackaged and re-released complete with a host of new extras. But is it worth buying?
The Extras:
Disc 1 contains seven behind-the-scenes featurettes and six scenes deleted from the final cut of the theatrical release. Director Bryan Singer also provides an audio commentary (previously unavailable on the original DVD release) in which he discusses the movie, the difficulties filming it and provides the odd insight into the sequel. Plus Disc 1 also includes six extended scenes which can be incorporated into the main feature although these are not new, having been previously available on the original DVD version.
Disc 2's main feature is a (making of) documentary Evolution X, which pretty much covers the complete process of making the movie from pre-production meetings, costume fittings, through to the Ellis Island premiere. This, for many, will be a very interesting insight into the process of how a movie of this scale is brought together and exactly what goes on behind the scenes, with plenty of stress and gnashing of teeth from the film-makers.
Additional disc 2 also includes Hugh Jackman's screen test and a promo for the sequel. Whether you feel this enough to tempt you into buying X-Men 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars "What do they call you? Wheels?" 22 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
Being a long-term fan of the X-Men comics, I greeted the news of an X-Men movie with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. With the possible exception of the Superman movies, superheros hadn't exactly been portrayed in a positive light. I was most concerned for Wolverine, the team's feisty Canadian bruiser. He is my favourite character and I was desperate that he should be portrayed right, but knew of no actor who would be able to pull it off.

By coincidence, the first photo I saw from the new movie was of Wolverine, battling on a train. I was astounded, everything seemed to be in place - the trademark upswept hairstyle, the claws, even the leather jacket. Things began to look up!

But I digress! For those of you who have not seen the film, here is a brief plot synopsis.
Humanity is starting to evolve, producing individuals with amazing powers and abilities. These individuals are split into two main groups - the X-Men, led by Professor Xavier, who believe that humans and mutants can live together peacefully, and the Brotherhood of Mutants, led by Erik Lensherr aka Magneto, who want to rule humankind. Magneto is willing to go to any lengths to achieve his aim and therein lies the problem ....

This is an extremely intelligent and well thought out movie - not the usual fluff and nonsense superhero outing we have previously been subjected to. The movie begins with the young Magneto's parents being herded into the Nazi gas chambers and explains why he is so determined that mutants will not go down the same road, despised as they are by normal humankind. Xavier's solution is a school, where mutants can be taught how to use their powers safely for the good of all humanity, while at the same time providing a safe haven from the outside world.

Format:DVD
Ok, lets cut down to the thing that you need to know straight off the bat. If you have the first film, be it on VHS or DVD already and am happy with what you've got then atleast borrow this from a friend before you pay another £20 for this DVD.
I actually do have the first film and I fall into the second catagory of person, someone who has £20 and is willing to spend it on another copy of the film.
With the special edition DVD I am getting 2 discs, and an unpresidented amount of extras.
I loved the first film and am happy to look at getting the special edition because of its extras.
Lets make no mistake, this is easally a £30 special edition for half that price.
This double DVD pack is well worth looking at if you are either a die hard fan or just someone who came across X-Men for the first time with the release at the cinemas of the first movie and liked what they saw.
I must stress that this DVD, namely X-Men 1.5 is better than the first standard edition release by a long way.
If you are the type of person who goes into a shop and looks down the isle and looks for something that stands out from the rest, be it in colour, picture or in price then there's a stronge chance you've already seen this on the shelves with it's crystal red cover. It stands out from everything else on the shelf because of the way it's been designed. There is a very good reason for this, it IS better than everything else on the shelf, it has the one thing that you can't get an P.R company to add, CLASS. The whole measmo of the DVD shouts that you've got something special infront of you.
