..it's director Vaughn who emerges as the true hero here (the less said of January Jones' leaden performance, the better), using a breathless pace and off-kilter compositions to mask the story's many gaps in logic.
It's the best X-Men film since the original, and while it's no match for either The Dark Knight or the 1978 Superman, it still ranks among the top 10 movies to date in this specialized genre. It's that good.
This blockbuster superhero movie is the best and brightest of the franchise. A definite must-see drama on a large screen that wipes out the disasters of "Last Stand" and "Wolverine" and seamlessly ties back in to the first two movies.
Smart, witty and fun. Perfect summer viewing and a worthy entry to the higher echelons of the Marvel cinematic pantheon. A fine reboot for the franchise and I'd happily look forward to another blast from the X-Men past.
