WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Whilst the characters are served beautifully, the actual plot is fairly poor and confusing, as are some of the gimicky sets, action pieces and special effects
VERDICT: A sensetive and character driven superhero movie that begins a franchise (and arguably a genre) in the best way possible.
X-Men is a well-made spectacle that is sure to please fans as well as those unfamiliar with the comics.
Just watched it again and wowed once more.
Sometimes the initial movie to a successful series loses its luster when the subsequent movies improve - not here.

Bryan Singer delivers a hit from one of Marvel Comic's best teams, the X-Men, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Hugh Jackman killed their roles.
This movie had a solid plot with great action as well and is a must see.
