The third part of the X-men trilogy continues the story of the rivalry between Magneto and Charles Xavier as they seek to control the diverse powers of the mutants. The film moves to a visually impressive climax as the two armies battle for supremacy on the Golden Gate Bridge.
Yet this film lacks the strength and integrity of the two previous films. The carefully constructed dialogue and attention to the details of character is replaced by action sequences and CGI-imagery. New characters are introduced but are not explored, serving only to deflect attention from the rivalries and affections of the leads. Crucially, three important characters from the previous films are eliminated well before the climax.
The film does boast some effective scenes, mostly when McKellen is onscreen and once again his scenes with Patrick Stewart generate an energy and tension that other scenes lack. The battle sequences are imaginative and well-constructed and the ending is fine. However, compared to the previous films in the trilogy, this movie does feel somewhat soulless and lacking the same passion for the source material.

Having enjoyed the first two films immensely - and I consider them brilliant examples of converting comic heroes onto the big screen - I was excited at the prospect of the third being released at the cinema.

However, I will not forget my disappointment in this film when I first saw it. I was amazed at the absence (for most of the movie) of many central characters, for example, Rogue, Xavier, and Scott. Also, the storyline implied that it was unlikely that the X-men would continue. Personally, I felt it was a wasted opportunity - it didn't bring more recognisable characters to life, for instance, Gambit; other characters like Beast and Juggernaut were introduced but not fully developed. Further films could have really explored these mutants.

For a long time, therefore, I was put off from viewing the film again. In fact, I have never made any effort to buy it, which would complete my collection of the trilogy. However, last night I watched it for the second time. I actually found that now that I know what happened, I found myself enjoying the movie and many of the qualities that I liked in the first two films became visible in this one.

Although I wouldn't buy this DVD at full price, in all, this second viewing has encouraged me to complete my trilogy (at the lower cost)!

When I watched this film the first time in the cinema, i made the mistake of watchin X-men 2 just before i went. This was really stupid because in no way is X3 as good as X2 and I was really disappointed with how X3 turned out.
Now, a few months later I watched it again and realised what an amazing film it actually is. The special effects are fantastic, the acting is great, and the cast is brilliant. The only thing that let it down was the weaker storyline, which in comparison the the other two films was rubbish. My advice is to watch this film but dont start comparing it to the other two - watch it when u havent seen the other films for a while because it is BRILLIANT!!!
Its a shame that cyclops AND xavier had to die though.

Not the greatest of the X-Men films, but not too bad nonetheless. I enjoyed it, some of the action set pieces are very impressive. On the down side the characters are underdevloped and the casting Vinnie Jones as Juggernaut was a bad move. On the plus side, Kelsey Grammer does a good job as Beast and the effects are mostly very good. The film would have benefitted greatly from more screen time for Collosus and Angel, and the absence of Nightcrawler was disappointing (although I did hear that Alan [...] did not want to reprise the role).
So not quite up to the standard of the previous two, but enjoyable enough. X-Men 4 the Absolute Final Last Stand anyone?

3.5 out of 5

When a cure is developed to rid mutants of their unusual abilities, the mutant community is torn in two, with some more than happy to get rid of what they view as a curse, while others are vehemently against it. Outraged at this development, Magneto makes war on the humans for trying to rid the world of mutantkind and the X-Men stand in the gap to stop him.

This movie has a lot going on and seems to serve as an ending to the previous two movies, bringing to fruition a major confrontation between the X-Men and the Brotherhood. These two teams, while having skirmished in the other movies, never had an all-out battle and this flick shows that. It also brings to pass a version of the Dark Phoenix storyline with Jean Grey returning from the dead as the Phoenix and working for the bad guys.

From an action standpoint, this movie has tons of it and it’s really cool. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) kicks butt as usual, while having the Juggernaut (Vinnie Jones) running around and smashing into things makes you cheer. Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen) ups the metal-controlling ante in this—I mean, lifting a bridge? Flipping semis? Awesome!—and even having Beast (Kelsey Grammer) beasting it up adds a level of excitement that makes this comic-book-come-to-life a thrill. And when Jean Grey lets loose and destroys her childhood home while a bunch of X-Men and Brotherhood folks are fighting inside it? That was some jaw-dropping stuff!

From a story standpoint, it kind of falters. In a general sense—the overall story, I mean—it’s fine as is. That is, the “what it’s about.” The delivery, however, seems to suffer from the same thing Spider-Man 3 did: too much going on and not enough time to tell it in.
