A distinctively absorbing entertainment, offering just enough popcorn thrills for mass audiences and just enough chewiness for hardcore sci-fi fans.

If you're feeling indulgent, you may find some of the movie's stunts entertaining, but its loftier ambitions are laughable.

Singer spins nearly supernatural wizardry in negotiating harmony between character depth and comic book dynamics.

X-Men might be a lumbering entertainment instead of a pretentious social drama, but that doesn't give Singer the right to throw forward such irresponsible messages.

the obvious result of endless script rewrites from a parade of big-shot Hollywood writers who were never in sync with each other

In keeping with its attention to such serious cultural themes, the film's special effects are good enough to make the characters' powers appear realistic but not outlandish.
