The events that end the movie are sort of anticlimactic, and the special effects, while energetic, are not as persuasive as they might be.

X-Men lacks the style and substance of such top-drawer science-fiction movies as The Matrix or The Empire Strikes Back.

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

...done with such remarkable visual style, you might not notice its want of substance.

I'm sure that regular fans of the comic book will find some inside jokes amusing, but I didn't find much humor and grew weary of the effort.

Clumsy when it should be light on its feet, the movie takes itself even more seriously than the comic book and its fans do, which is a superheroic achievement.

Had it simply ignored or abbreviated the inescapably hackneyed origin stuff, the movie might have been in a position to break some ground.

What X-Men offers are outrageous makeup and costumes, gaudy overproduction and that bland, dopey dialogue.

The film is a mixed bag with the promise of a better sequel.

It sucks that this choppily edited film appears rushed and incoherent in ways that cheat the story of its human resonance and the stunts of their anticipated pow.

Singer offers barely a whisper of a film, one that's likely to disappoint fan boys and bore the uninitiated.

Chuck Rudolph
Matinee Magazine

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.

These days, with technology being what it is, we really shouldn't be as willing to forgive slapdash storytelling in the face of amazing visuals,

Die-hard action fans may cheer, but if you're looking for the romantic verve of Superman or the dreamlike edginess of Batman, this isn't the comic-book movie for you.

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

The film is stranded between too many poles to be effective on any level.

X-Men fights a skewed, rerun version of yesterday's battles.

The latest failed attempt to build a cinematic franchise on the popularity of a superhero comic.

With so many of the mutant heroes so outrageously gifted, it's hard to believe that anyone is ever in any real danger.
