Critic Reviews

Consensus: Director Brett Ratner has replaced the heart and emotion (and character development) of the previous X-Men films with more action and explosions. The film should still provide ample entertainment, but viewers may truly wish this to be the Last Stand.
  • Sillier than the Singer versions, Ratner's movie is also -- for this less-than-reverent X-Men fan -- more satisfying. More...
  • X-Men: The Last Stand has shifted the shape of the franchise from pretty good, if uninspired, to terrifically entertaining. More...
  • [I] found myself strangely moved by the sense of relationships, friendly and unfriendly, coming to an end in a dull return to normality in the world of humans and mutants. More...
  • What a comedown, after the weirdly beautiful things Singer and his technicians did in the first two movies. More...
  • The Last Stand is a hugely ambitious picture, and it would have been far more successful if Ratner had scaled it down to focus more on the interaction between the characters. More...
  • [Director] Ratner makes a hash of the story and characters his predecessor brought to such complex, sympathetic life, delivering a pumped-up exercise in mayhem, carnage and blunt-force trauma. More...
  • True, Ratner is no Singer, but in The Last Stand he delivers the goods with gusto. More...
  • To anyone more discerning, and certainly to those fans who cherished the way the first two movies took pains to honour what made the X-Men such special mutants, the final blowout will seem like a blown opportunity. More...
  • Of the three X-episodes, Ratner's is the least involving. More...
  • How many distinguished veterans of the Royal Shakesepeare Company does it take to make a bi-g-budget trashy movie? Well, two. More...

  • The first X-Men gave us promise. X2 made us proud to be comic book fans. X3 makes us want to cower down and cry. It's crap from the opening shot...
  • So what happened to the Nightcrawler? he was a good soft centred character with potential in the last film, what the Hadoken?? So yet again after the...
  • The third film in the franchise is hard to compare to the others, because it feels distant and sloppy. This movie has great thrills, however fails to...
  • Not the best film in the series by any means, in fact its proof that it is close to impossible to make a perfect X-Men film due to the large amount...
  • The character development which was key to the other two's success was lost in the midst of this anti-climactic explosion. Goes against comic books,...
  • To be honest there are none of the X-men movies I like, except for Last Stand, especially since this is the one X-men film that everyone seems to hate...
  • [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] Brett Ratner's climax to the X-Men trilogy is an insult to it's...
  • There is a cure for mutants. Do they choose to be unique or fit in with humans?
  • This is real action....cool action....it's not fat explotions and cars going really fast....He moved the fucking bridge...A great ending to the...
  • Sadly not as strong as the first two, still full of action though.
