Audience Reviews for Generation X
To think I spent weeks in anticipation for this movie so long ago.. This movie is crap, but many 'trailblazers' are. The mistakes learned here made X-Men and X2 the successes they are. One thing that wasn't a mistake was casting Finola Hughes as the redeemed White Queen.
While it's not that bad on it's own, Generation X can't really hang on to its own plot. The colors make for a interesting experience but parts of the film feel really bleak because of it. The ending is slightly corny, and none of the characters really stand out from each other. Some parts work, others just don't.
Kind of interesting as a pre-Bryan Singer 'X-Men' artifact, but the film lacks a coherent plot, and the acting is mostly pretty bad. Matt Frewer is entertaining in a campy way -- the whole thing's a bit campy, really. As a low budget TV movie, I'll cut 'Generation X' some slack and say they might've been able to develop it into something worthwhile, had the pilot been picked up for series... maybe.
