The most beautiful, strange, and exciting comic-book movie since the original Batman.

The deft way that Singer and company have transferred the action comics to the big screen reps one of the best efforts since Superman II.

These are superheroes who largely regret their powers because of the trouble that they bring.

Austin Chronicle

Of course, the wide-open ending practically shrieks "sequel," so rest assured this is only the beginning of a new super-franchise. Here's hoping Joel Schumacher doesn't get his hands on it.

X-Men's myriad of positive attributes generally compensate for its less-than-enthralling stretches.

Sacramento News & Review

A superb cast and spotless direction from Bryan Singer make this one a summer must-see, and a film that goes right alongside the first Batman and Superman as genre bests.

As summer movies go, X-Men is remarkably crisp and economical.

Relative newcomer Hugh Jackman is a real find as the brooding Wolverine.

X-Men plays like a so-so middle chapter of an epic series rather than a fitting kickoff.

Apart from the brushed metal production design and pin-sharp camerawork, this offers only moderate excitement.

Simply a fluffy, big screen version of a simple comic book -- nothing more, nothing less.

Looking Closer

What makes this film such a success is its seriousness on the subject of proper and improper responses to oppression, its unique and memorable characters, its cleverness and visual imagination, and its refusal to degenerate into a bloodbath.
