Not as disturbingly dark as Batman, but yet it still has the hard gritty edge that keeps the audience riveted to the screen.
| Original Score: 4/5
All these characters with their odd powers are inherently absurd and they throw a barrel of wrenches into the machinery of a coherent narrative.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Singer was wise enough to keep the fight scenes silent instead of featuring the usual inane banter of most comic-book movies.
| Original Score: 3/4
X-cellent, X-citing, X-quisite, X-hilarating. Shall I go on?
| Original Score: 5/5
Entertaining and reasonably intelligent.
A rarity, a comic-book movie with a satisfying cinematic design and protagonists you want to watch.
Should be the blueprint for all super-hero films to come.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Somebody, at least, made sure that a movie based on a comic book wasn't a comic book on screen, but instead, thankfully, just a really good movie.
It's not as good as Superman II and certainly nowhere near as good as the comic book; but it's good enough to raise hopes for the sequel.
After seeing this film, I am looking forward to seeing more from this sleek new breed of action hero.
A kick *** flicks that does justice to its comic book inspiration, a wild ride that has a much brains as it has thrills, and easily the best damn movie of the summer.
| Original Score: 4/4
For a certain kind of fan -sadly, the most loyal, passionate and alert kind of fan - X-Men is bound to be a disappointment.
| Original Score: B
It's a model of discipline in that respect.
X-Men delivers the goods.
| Original Score: B+
It's obvious there's enough material here for several movies.
It does right by its source material without dumbfounding people who have never set foot in a comic book shop.
| Original Score: 3/4
Ao decidir acrescentar toques dramáticos ao seu filme, Bryan Singer elevou 'X-Men' a um nível superior a outras produções do gênero.
Surprising subtlety, complexity, and human interest; deserves to be taken seriously.
| Original Score: A-
A sci-fi thriller that taps into the reservoir of feelings we have about diversity, tolerance and exclusivity.
A far-above-average comic book movie.
