It's not as good as Superman II and certainly nowhere near as good as the comic book; but it's good enough to raise hopes for the sequel.

A kick *** flicks that does justice to its comic book inspiration, a wild ride that has a much brains as it has thrills, and easily the best damn movie of the summer.

For a certain kind of fan -sadly, the most loyal, passionate and alert kind of fan - X-Men is bound to be a disappointment.

It does right by its source material without dumbfounding people who have never set foot in a comic book shop.

Ao decidir acrescentar toques dramáticos ao seu filme, Bryan Singer elevou 'X-Men' a um nível superior a outras produções do gênero.

A sci-fi thriller that taps into the reservoir of feelings we have about diversity, tolerance and exclusivity.

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.

If you're feeling indulgent, you may find some of the movie's stunts entertaining, but its loftier ambitions are laughable.

Singer spins nearly supernatural wizardry in negotiating harmony between character depth and comic book dynamics.

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.

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