X-Men is a great introduction to the characters and world of the X-Men franchise. Magneto (Ian McKellen) is a very understandable villain and the issue/conflict in this movie is very well laid out. Logan (Hugh Jackman) is a very likeable character and his chemistry with Rogue (Anna Paquin), Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) and Cyclops (James Marsden) is just great to watch. The CGI is pretty average but the practical effects are amazing. Overall X-Men is a great start to the first X-Men trilogy and the entire franchise as a whole.
Biggest thing I hate about it - I hate how Cyclops makes fun of the Comic Book costumes like these cheap black leather suits are better, Cyclops in these X-Men movies has always been held back. How is The Punisher 1989 a piece of shit? Because he doesn't have the Skull? But X-Men is a Masterpiece? Lmao, suits have no color & they make fun the comic book costumes. I guess Critics & Audiences are Hypocrites. A decent movie, Bryan Singer understands Mutant Discrimination, he gets that right the most out of all 4 tries at X-Men. Good Comic Book movie.
