"X-MEN 3" was the first of the film series to not have Bryan Singer, & is the fifth highest opening day in film history, & I find both of those facts very sad, because "X-MEN 3" must be one of the worst super hero films ever made.
(Contains spoilers for "X2"!) The plot involves a "cure" for mutants, & the controversy following it. Obviously, Magneto & his the rest of the villains decide to take matters into their own hands, & the X-MEN have to stop him. Also, Jean Grey (who died at the end of "X2") comes back as "Phoenix", & then joins Magneto.
First off, THEY KILL CYCLOPES! It's not even a spoiler. I swear, he must less than five minutes of screen time!
Second, WERE IS NIGHT CRAWLER? Wasn't the most popular new character in the second film? I know, in "X-MEN: The Official Game" they explain why he's not in the third film, but I didn't get to finish that game.
Also, Rogue is whiny, & has very little significance to the story. It's hard to believe that in the first film, she was (ignoring Wolverine) the main character, but in the third film, she has very little to do with the story, & was almost useless.
The acting is also bad. I never thought that Hugh Jackman would ever give an average performance as Wolverine!
There's also this one scene I don't get were Logan (Wolverine) is in the back yard of the Xavier mansion, & in the next scene, he's in the woods. I can't even remember if the film even stopped to explain how this happened, it just happens!
But the worst thing is how there's too many characters. They try to fit in Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Angel, Leech, Beast. Just too many to count!
But is there anything that I like? Well, Patrick Stewart is still great as Professor Xavier, but it's just to bad that they (SPOILERS!!) kill him off!! Well thank you, Brett Ratner! Thank you for destroying the one good thing about this movie! Top notch!
Patrick Stewart's acting
Too Many Characters
OVER ALL: As you know by now, "X-MEN 3" SUCKS! But it's at least better than "Batman & Robin", "Cat Woman", "Highlander 2", & "The Spirit".
G-MAN gives "X-MEN 3" a "Poor Four" out of "Ten"!
