Synopsis


X-Men: The Last Stand
The explosive X-Men original motion picture trilogy draws to a close with this release that finds Rush Hour director Brett Ratner stepping in for Bryan Singer to tell the tale of a newly discovered mutant "cure," and the polarizing effect it has on mutant/man relations. With the pressure on mutants to give up their powers and pledge alliance with the human race reaching a critical turning point, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) urges tolerance and understanding as his nemesis Magneto (Ian McKellen) gathers a powerful resistance in preparation for the ultimate war against humankind. Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, and James Marsden return to reprise the roles they played in the previous two X-Men films, with Kelsey Grammer and Vinnie Jones joining the cast as Beast and Juggernaut respectively. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Worst movie in the Franchise...until Origins...

    With several deviations from the comic book canon in the plot and a noticeable shift from the character development that took place in the first two X-Men films toward a faster-paced, more action-oriented, and choppier film, this film got mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike. Even directors of other movies in the franchise, Brian Singer and Matthew Vaughn, as well as the movie's own script writer, Simon Kinberg, criticized the movie for treating the Dark Phoenix story arch too superficially in a melange of characters and scenes that was either packed with too much material or lacking adequate length to present properly. Having gotten that off my chest, I still like this film, and even Ebert and Roeper gave it two thumbs up. If you check your expectations for a canon portrayal of the X-Men at the door, and enjoy a good action-packed comic book movie, then this is a fun choice! My brother--a complete novice in comic book lore--saw this movie for the first time in 2017 and really liked it. For those who continue to harp on the fact that it isn't as good as X-Men and X-Men United, I direct them to the next installation--X-Men Origins--to see what an actual terrible movie with no redeeming qualities looks like.

    Ordinarily I would have already viewed this movie, but this time the steel box csmre out at the same time as the plastic box so I got to save a bit of money. The movie is all right, just another sequel to a movie franchise. Got some interesting footage, CGI stuff, just more sci-fi and fantasy, which seems to be the thing that Hollywood is producing today.....mostly to make money with little concern for more than what used to be termed 'wasting film'. I guess that with electronic recording and storage it is a bit cheaper than with film, but they spend many ties as much as the older, film versions of Hollywood fare when they have to hire hundreds of technological staff to get the CGI done and create the 'gee-whiz' fantasy stuff.

    Should have stopped at 2

    X2: X-Men United was a fine example of how to stay true to a franchise while extrapolating enough from it to make a good movie. The themes dealt with in the second installment were resonant, relevant and well played out. Sadly, X-Men 3 denegrates into a sub-par action movie. Instead of really exploring the symbolism that the X-Men mythos embodies, the filmmakers instead choose to see how many mutants they can cram into one movie. None are really fleshed out and you have to wonder if this is just an attempt to market as many action figures as possible. Coupled with the pointless deaths of major characters and plot holes so big the Golden Gate Bridge could be floated through them and you get a movie that just throws away everything great its prequel was. Do yourself a favor and stop at X2. Pretend this one never happened.

    Jean's woeful reborn storyline is X-Men's fatal flaw. Sloppy writing. When reaching the point when Jean's miraculous survival from the impact of the water needs to be explained by some brainy scientist (in this case Xavier), he simply offers the explanation: "Her powers wrapped her in a cocoon of telekinetic energy." Poor Famke Janssen gets to inhabit a truly badly-written character as The Last Stand plays on, and she plays it badly too. Most of the film she is not really doing anything, but stands aside looking imposing while the other characters remark how superhuman she is and how powerful she has become. When she finally does get to shine, she does not really shine at all but her scene becomes completely over-the-top and desensitizes you to the action.

    Great Movie!

    It was so lame that Professor X actually died but at the end of the credits it makes you wonder. I liked how they actually added Juggernaut and a few others buy they crammed them all together. Also, Angel didn't really have much of a part in it. It would be cool if they didn't try to put so many characters together. They could have done a better job on this movie but was still good with all the cool action in it. Also, it's cool how they actually added The Pheonix on there. It would be cool if they had Apocalypse in there but it would completely change the storyline. Anyway this was a great movie, i recommend anyone to see it.

    I think that "X3: The Last Stand" was once again one of the greatest X-Men films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite X-Men films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also really enjoyed all of the X-Men films of the first X-Men trilogy including "X-Men" and "X2: X-Men United". I also think that "X3: The Last Stand" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, mystery and suspense including really great and amazing personal storylines as well.

    How do end a money franchrise at its peek, kill off all or most of the main characters. I love this movie because it kinda stayed with the base of Marvel's concept but Hollywood adds a little of their magic. If I were to have a problem with this movie it would be that once again they stayed on the Logan too much and not on younger mutants. This is probably the last of the X-men movies, but if they decide to squeeze one more, can we have a storyline with the younger mutants (Iceman, Shadowcat, Rogue) either fighting the Morlocks or the Brotherhood...just a suggestion

    I do not like this movie at all. It's awful in my opinion. Definitely the worst of the X-Men and X-Men affiliated movies. I only bought it because I own all of the others on blu ray with the collectable steelbook case, and I have a thing about having COMPLETE collections. Haha That being said it is cool as far as collectable cases go, thus the 3 star rating instead of 1 star.
