Like a toad being struck by lightning....,
This review is from: X-Men [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The same as everything else.....
In a world where both Mutants and Humans fear each other, Marie D'Ancanto, better known as Rogue, runs away from home and hitches a ride with another mutant, known as Wolverine.
Charles Xavier, who owns a school for young mutants, sends Storm and Cyclops to bring them back before it is too late.
Magneto, who believes a war is approaching, has an evil plan in mind, and needs young Rogue to help him.....
I know Bryan Singer was introducing a huge amount of characters to the big screen, and while the film is very well made, did it really have to be so boring in certain places? Stewart, Mckellan, Jackman and Janssen are blistering in this movie, whenever they are on screen, the film is at it's peak.
On the other end of the spectrum though, we have Berry, Marsden and Paquin, who are mundane on the verge of being offensive, which is what Singers major flaw is. He didn't think of the other characters, instead, just having somebody slightly 'big' at the time would make the more interesting, it doesn't work.
So all in all, it's not bad, just compared to other movies in the genre, it feels very lethargic and longer that it actually is.
