I have never been a fan or fantasy or such like films, but after this film was recommended to me by a friend i thought why not just watch it and see if it was any good. So, i did, rather skeptically i will admit. However, before long i was really getting into and i was starting to grip the edge of my seat. By the end i was quite shocked at how good it was.
I mean, you can be really picky about certain things that they have missed out from the comics, but as i, and a large majority of others in the world have never read them anyway, i guess it don't really matter.
I have seen quite a number of films before, which have tended to be either action or martial arts, but suprisingly this really measures up. I would not hesitate to watch this again and i look forward to watching sequel and any others which they might make.
So, in answer to my original question, Has this film got the 'X' factor? Well, i would say YES definatly! And i would also say BUY THIS NOW!

2000's X-Men saw the first of the really high calibre super-hero franchises of the 21st century, The X-men, Spidey, the Hulk(come on it was all right!) to name but a few. Like the beginning of all great franchises, whilst being a film of small scope, it hints at huge back stories and since its character development was so interesting, the moolah that it generated financed the more detailed and excellent X2.

It opens to bleached rainy 1944 in the jewish ghetto where a young Jewish boy is wrenched from his parents in a tear jerking sequence. The wire gate bends and buckles to his anger, he is knocked unconscious by the butt of a rifle... The themes of discrimination could not be hammered home more bluntly. We move to the near future where a young girl in the first flush of love is agonisingly separated from her loved ones because she is different with dangerous powers. We move to a sweaty dingy cage where a feral young Clint Eastwood look alike dominates the ring, yet he is a tortured individual with a backstory. These miscreants are given shelter by Charles Xavier at his "special" academy. These mutants are feared and ostracised by society especially ambitious Senator Kelly who wants a mutant registration act. Charles Xavier believes in the good of mankind but Eric Lensha (our boy from WW2) is bitter and wants to dominate mankind. The film floats between super hero cheese but keeps a foot in reality and this is why it's been such a success with the outsiders in fact Bryan Singer feels it has a Gay connotation! This may or not be true but this is a very satisfying and thought provoking film with an occasional burst of humour. When Wolverine is asked to verify that he's the real deal and not a doppelganger by Cyclops he utters"You're a Dick!

Yes, yes, yes, yes. This movie rocks. In fact, I can't think of a single reason not to buy it.

Let's start with the cast. The two juggernauts Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are in the centre of this epos, going head to head against each other - one militant using force to establish a new world order where mutants are at the top, the other wishing to build bridges between mutants and humans for a better understanding; justice and peace for all. Then there's Halle Berry (hot as usual) as a quite convincing Storm, Famke Janssen as the graceful Jane Grey, Anna Paquin as the fugitive Rogue and Hugh Jackman as the wild and mysterious Wolverine. There is not - in my opinion - a single cast member who does not play his/her part well, and they are all well-suited for their respective roles.

The plot is what makes this film stand out. The focus is on the difference in philosophy between the two old friends Xavier and Magneto, the appearance of a new powerful mutant named Rogue and her encounter with the loner Wolverine. The film is an introduction to the story of the X-men, and is very well suited as the beginning of a trilogy. Wolverine is an important character: basically, he's a mystery. He doesn't remember much about his past, and throughout this film (and indeed in the next) he quests to learn more about himself while at the same time opening the door to his heart in one rare instance for the vulnerable Rogue, who is placed in the middle of the battle between two old friends who have different views on the relationship between humans and mutants.

The film will leave you with a desire for more. Trust me when I say you don't really need it. This film yields a preliminary result of a continuing battle between the two great old men, and that's the way it should be. You can always continue the story yourself, in your own imagination.

This film, along with ‘Blade’, could easily be the ones responsible for the current regeneration of the superhero / comic-book movie. Direct Bryan Singer brought a fresh look to a genre long since stale with exciting characters, cutting edge special effects and a cast of top name stars to deliver fun, fast and exciting action and story work for a franchise backed up with an extensive back catalogue.

Thankfully for tip-toeing into the make or break world of superhero adaptations with a wealth of comic book history to rely on, the plot relies on no previous knowledge of the X-Men to understand and follow. Of course there are plenty of nods to the Marvel universe for die-hard fans to note, but for the general audience it’s a simple story of good mutant vs bad mutant vs humanity in a fight to survive and save man-kind. It’s exciting and dangerous, but fun and witty at the same time thanks to the cast who embody the characters as if they were born to play them on-screen to make them far more likeable and enjoyable to watch than could be imagined.

It’s easy to see the growing appeal for Hugh Jackman making Wolverine a more likeable character than he could have played him, appealing to all audiences and paving a strong lead for the franchise. But you can’t knock any of the cast at all to be honest; Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen play old friends and enemies that you believe has just been ongoing for decades, and fellow X-Men Famke Janssen, Halle Berry, James Marsden and Anna Paquin equally show a great deal of raw emotion, wit and pathos in a story that is very tender and deals with the strong subjects of isolation, betrayal, loss and acceptance of who you are.
