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

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.

All these characters with their odd powers are inherently absurd and they throw a barrel of wrenches into the machinery of a coherent narrative.

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

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.

X-men is fitfully satisfying.

It's darker, more complex and far more substantive than anything in the Superman or Batman cinematic series.

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

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

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.

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.
