Four feature-length action adventures based on the 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 fascist US senator Robert Frank Kelly 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 the sequel, 'X-Men 2' (2003), Professor Charles Xavier, Wolverine and the X-Men find themselves in the firing line after a failed assassination 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 foes, including Magneto, if they are to stop him. In the third film, 'X-Men: The Last Stand' (2006), the mutants are given the option of giving up their powers and becoming human after a private laboratory supported by the government finds a way to use the DNA of a powerful boy to correct the mutants. However, Magneto 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 herself to the evil forces of Magneto, making them almost invincible. The fourth film in the franchise, 'X-Men: Origins - Wolverine' (2009) is a prequel to the other three films. Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine, who, some 20 years before the action of the original 'X-Men' movie, is seeking revenge on his half-brother Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) for the death of his girlfriend, and eventually signs up to the ominous Weapon X programme.

The special features don't all work, but the main movie title does.
These are not my favourite movies by a long shot and don't think I would have bothered or it even to have crossed my mind to have upgraded these from DVD to Blu-ray if it wasn't for the price , but certainly wouldn't buy them if I really didn't think the films were ok.
Unlike some reviewers who seemed to have had a gun pointed at their heads and forced them to purchase a film they really hate and despise , then moan endlessly about it !
Unless they didn't buy them and make out that they did just so they can complain to a larger audience.
Picture and sound are excellent. Loads of features with two discs per film , except for Wolverine Origins , which is probably my only gripe about this Box Set as it really does seem to have been a last minute after thought to include it.
What with its thin reedy cover compared to the other three standard cases and only has the one disc , but hey , for £14 I feel as though I've bought the bargain of the century and not going to moan to have replaced them , which back in the day would have cost nearly that per film on DVD...And probably more on VHS !
I've already tried to review this once but for some reason it never got through....so....to the Amazon screeners: I bought this item from Amazon. I have it in my hot little hands! Everything below is the truth!!! (I know, 'cos I can see it with my own eyes!!)
This boxset contains the following:
X-Men - this is the 2 Disc version with all extras from the Trilogy edition.
X-Men 2 - see above
X-Men: The Last Stand - see above
X-Men Origins: Wolverine - this is a single-disc edition (no digital copy etc) but has all the extras from the separate release.
The discs are in HD-Slim cases, Wolverine is in a very-slim-case! The outer case in simply a cardboard slip-cover.
So, all-in-all there are SEVEN discs in this set and NOT, NOT, NOT the 4 discs that Amazon state.
Amazon...maybe if you got your information correct more people would review/buy your products!!
X-Men - well written, acted - above average comic transfer - great picture quality - ok soundtrack
X-Men 2 - for me the best of the lot - sharp picture - impressive soundtrack with great rear speaker action
Last Stand - ok film - good picture and soundtrack - I was entertained
Wolverine - by far the weakest film in the pack - my blu ray had terrible grain in quite a lot of scenes - basic stereo soundtrack dressed in DTS-HD overcoat
I felt Wolverine had the makings of a great flick. It started well and then drowned in its own cgi mire. Hugh Jackman has a permanent grimace - jaw-jutting must be a sport somewhere with Jackman is its current world champion. I can just hear the conversation where Jackman - the film's producer - laid down the chemical formula of a money-making film - lots of kiddy violence (no blood or actual suffering) , lots of super-power stuff, lots of opportunity to show the benefit of Jackman having spent a year in the gym - one big-love-killed-by-baddy-then-avenged sub plot - Wolverine must cry ...... He was the producer so Jackman's motivation was to appeal to every demographic he could - the writers had the job of creating something which appealed to the demographics and somehow make the cgi set pieces link together in some way. That is business I suppose.
At this price I cant complain. Well , not complain, just moan a little.
X-Men - The first film sets up this part of the Marvel universe and inroduces us to its heros and villain's we meet Wolverine Professor X Cyclops Storm Jean Grey and there evil adverseries led by Magneto. The story is about the differing veiws of former friends Magneto and Professor X as where they fit into scoiety. This is a fantastic movie a deffinate 5 out of 5.
X-Men 2 - The second movie is a little different as the majority of the focus for this is about the origins of Wolverine and as such some of the important cast members may as well not be here. But new mutants fill in nicely as the evil Striker is trying to rid the world of mutants once and for all. X2 is another great film in some ways better then the original but due to the fact that some of the established heros from the first are pushed out for really no other reason then to show off with improved cgi (Night Crawler) from me it gets a 4.5 out of 5.
X-Men The Last Stand - The final Xmen movie seems very rushed to me I heard somewhere that the directors job for this was offered to the guy who went on to do Xmen First Class if only he had excepted. What you get here is the shortest of the Xmen movies. Basically there is a cure that some want and some don't that is the main reason for the fighting. Add to that some of the main characters are killed off withing the first 40 minutes and then its Wolverine to the rescue. Its good but its not as good 3.5 out of 5 for this one.Read more ›
