X-Men has more substance to it than you might expect, and it has a message.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
January 1, 2000
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.

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

X-Men is not only a superb action film, but also an impeccably woven character drama with a profound emotional dimension.

January 1, 2000
In keeping with its attention to such serious cultural themes, the film's special effects are good enough to make the characters' powers appear realistic but not outlandish.
January 1, 2000
The latest failed attempt to build a cinematic franchise on the popularity of a superhero comic.

January 1, 2000
Long-time fans of the comic book might balk at the liberties taken with the character chronologies, but there are just as many scenes that have deftly been transferred from the realm of pen-and-ink.
