Indeed, even Hugh Jackman was not cast in this role for his neon-lit global fame among the youth... although he earns a place in the starry firmament of cinema with this well judged performance.

What makes X-men an enjoyable film is the really fine work from many of the actors.

It's good, damn good.

What is most surprising and wonderful about director Bryan Singer's X-Men is how skillfully it avoids all of the myriad potholes placed in its path.

Joss Whedon wrote two lines of dialogue, and one of them is very good!

The X-Men comic books have spawned a cottage industry of mutant characters, and the movie helps make sense of these legions while offering the established fan base something new to cheer.

Exciting mainly because anything can happen and does, the movie drags a bit as it approaches a climax set on top of the Statue of Liberty. But once there it revives.

The best news is that you don't even have to know what a Marvel Comic is to enjoy X-Men.
July 15, 2015
This is a film that should satisfy fans of the hugely popular comic book and audiences who can't tell one uncanny X-Man from another. Mutants rule.

July 15, 2015
The Marvel Comics characters are well realised, and Singer mixes the classic values of good storytelling with liberal amounts of digital magic. On the down side, this plays a little too much like the beginning of a franchise.

X-Men is a terrific piece of summer entertainment that's going to heat up the box office like a mutant's eye beams.
July 15, 2015
The movie is respectful of its source material without being the least bit self-important. X-Men may have hit the Platonic ideal of comic-book movies, coming across as lightweight, sophisticated, wacky and straightforward all at the same time.

The script could be a lot snappier, particularly during some virtually unexplained rivalry banter between Marsden and Jackman, but X-Men is a decent start to what will no doubt be an immensely profitable series of negligible but enjoyable summer movies.
April 15, 2013
The most beautiful, strange, and exciting comic-book movie since the original Batman.
June 3, 2011
The deft way that Singer and company have transferred the action comics to the big screen reps one of the best efforts since Superman II.

These are superheroes who largely regret their powers because of the trouble that they bring.

X-Men, it must be said, has only a few truly thrilling moments. This is not a picture that tries to blow you out of your seat. But more than any other big movie this summer, it has a consistently inventive vision.
July 6, 2010
Of course, the wide-open ending practically shrieks "sequel," so rest assured this is only the beginning of a new super-franchise. Here's hoping Joel Schumacher doesn't get his hands on it.

X-Men's myriad of positive attributes generally compensate for its less-than-enthralling stretches.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 12, 2010
Comic-book adaptation has brains, brawn, and style.
