It's kinda lame. There's slightly more to it than that, but basically, that's what X-Men: The Last Stand boils down to.

Judging by this third and purportedly final installment, the X-gene has been tapped out.

It is a shell of its predecessors, a technical exercise that is utterly devoid of substance.

When other mutants approach Leech, their special talents vanish. It's much the same effect Ratner has on actors.

Nothing really feels at stake other than box-office opening-weekend numbers

Oppressive overkill can suck the life from any hallowed institution. Even, dare say it, the X-Men.

Never really achieves its full potential...doesn't live up to the expectations set by the previous movie.

A couple of mutants die in X-Men: The Last Stand but not nearly enough to save this boring mess.

A dreary species of empty pomp and circumstance, far too similar to many of its summer movie brethren and disappointingly dissimilar from its superior predecessors.

Disposable entertainment that passes the time with flickering images of flashy camera cuts and explosions before disappearing from memory before the popcorn is digested...

It has no passion, no connection to where we are now, and in a series whose stories have heretofore spoken dark truths about American intolerance, that matters.

I can't say I was entranced this time round.

Ratner tries desperately to mimic the style and substance of Singer's movies, but imitation is all it is.

The nuance and complexity of character that made the first two X-Men movies more compelling than the typically mindless summer blockbuster are gone in X-Men: The Last Stand.

Sadly, "X" didn't mark the spot convincingly this time around. Ratner directs with all the urgency of a nervous Nellie with a bladder problem.

This is a stupid, hateful, ignorant movie, one of the very worst comic book films ever made.

The results are less than x-citing.

The film exists solely to give the Comic Book Guys of the world a chance to see all their favorite action figures, life size and in full form.

Watching the actors is like watching Elton John try to make out with Anne Heche. They go through the motions in a totally disingenuous display, except Wolverine doesn't break out into an impromptu "Rocket Man" to ease the awkwardness.

Wolverine takes it personally when hit below the belt with a sucker punch. As a paying audience member, so should you. It's a vending-machine movie all the way, with none of the mood, charm or style that has preceded it.
