... hums along at a brisk pace and should appeal to fans of the series. It manages to wrap up some stories while leaving others open for future films.

Magneto is the source of terror, although how much can you fear a villain with "neat-o" in his name?

My mutant power (and the boxoffice tingle of $199 Million in one week) tells me "The Last Stand" is anything but last. It's not even likely to be penultimate.

The third time is definitely not the charm

An acceptable -- albeit mindless -- sequel that should placate fans of the series.

It is a shell of its predecessors, a technical exercise that is utterly devoid of substance.

Here's your blaring headline in the Daily Bugle: 'X-MEN SQUASH SPIDER-MAN LIKE A BUG.'

'What it lacks is the rich layering of character details that made the previous films soar beyond genre filmmaking.'

Rather than deepen the group dynamic, Ratner's movie is just overcrowded.

X-Men: The Last Stand is popcorn entertainment best left, except for the fans, as a curiosity for DVD rental.

There were moments when I considered whether this is Brett Ratner's best film. It's really too flawed to allow the word "best" to be used. How about, "it doesn't suck?"

Incoming director Brett Ratner is interested in one thing and one thing only: action. And he's very good at it.

Noticeably less time is spent on building atmosphere and personalities; more footage is dedicated to high-impact stunts and lavish visual effects.

All the wreckage doesn't make the choices seem more informed or more resonant. They just seem louder.

There are plenty of boneheaded decisions plaguing X-Men: The Last Stand ... yet there's also enough of merit to earn it a passing grade.

This is a stupid, hateful, ignorant movie, one of the very worst comic book films ever made.

It's not just a matter of its failing to live up to the standard set by the second film; it's that it isn't good enough by any standards.

Howlingly bad cliches, transparent exposition and plot holes large enough to contain the continent of Africa -- with room left over for Ratner's judgment and an artichoke.

Ratner haters and comic book purists should probably stay home - a fun superhero popcorn movie that delivers nearly two hours of solid entertainment
