I really don't understand a lot of peoples grip with x3. It's not as good as x2 granted but better than part 1. people who claim this is up there with the travesty of elektra/batman and robin etc are way off the mark. Yes there are probs,mainly in the short running time as a lot of new characters have been shoehorned in and theres not much time to develop their characters in 99 mins. X2 was over 2 hours long!! The action is the best of all 3 and thats what carries this along with oomph all the way through. Brett ratner does an ok job..people either don't know or are ignorant to the fact that first director matthew vaughn left the project and fox head honcho tom rothman made all kinds of demands and created probs with this fim. Ratner does a good a job as he could with an already troubled project.
People that give this 1 star are prob the comic nerds who demand every last ounce of character detail and detail make it on the screen! Comeon guys things have to be changed and sacrificed for movies all the time. Normally i'm the one saying how naff something was when others rave over it,but on this occasion im the reverse..go see x 3 its actually quite good.
