The movie that both put mutants on the big screen for the first time AND introduced the 21st century to the superhero genre, "X-Men" might appear dated to some, but I prefer to use the term "retro."

Good adaptation of the classic comic book and fantastic casting of the mutants. Visually cool with only one flaw- needed a little bit more action scenes. All in all good intro to the marvel universe

A definitive superhero film..... Probably. It does unfortunately mention evolution not creation by God, and also the enemy does say stuff against God. But he is an enemy, although you are supposed to forgive your enemies and tell them about Christ and be in Christ and surrender to him and accept him. Jesus is our only hope, God Bless, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:7, Genesis, Revelation.

X-Men contains interesting themes and theses, a tight plot with a nice pace and zips entertainingly through its short run-time. If it's a little unpolished, the dialogue especially could have done with another pass, it's forgiven for the impressive way it introduces a fully realised world. While never leaving New York, the political backdrop makes it feels much less insular than many comic book films, which tend to develop a single city. The villainous scheme is pretty nonsensical, and the climatic action is not the most spectacular, but it features clever use of powers and its small-scale means focus stays on characters, a lesson few films in the genre would learn. And that's where the real strength lies; a wonderful cast brings great representations of the key relationships and antagonisms associated with the property; Magneto and Xavier, and the triangle between Cyclops and Wolverine and Jean Grey.

Great casting, good acting. Entertaining movie with solid cgi. This movie does have a lot of weird scenes that don't really make sense and weigh this movie down big time.

Bel film di supereroi, gli X-Men, dove spicca ovviamente Wolverine interpretato da Hugh Jackman. Mi piaciuto e mi ha intrattenuto tutto il tempo

X-Men successfully gave life to the modern superhero genre as we know it. To this day, even it's a little cringy sometimes, it remains the most clever specimen of its genre. A really well-told story about racism and its consequences. Also, the cast perfectly fits their roles.

To put it simply, X-Men was absolutely fantastic. For a movie made in 2000, the special effects were amazing and the story and characters were both well thought-out. The end result was a film that succeeded on multiple levels.

X-men is an amazing start to the amazing successful series about mutants walking the Earth. It's very well adapted from the comic books giving fans something they'll really enjoy! It also tells the story of a specific mutant, the one and only Wolverine. It gives great performances by Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and the rest of the cast as they kick off the series with a great movie to begin with.

We have come a long way. In 2000 a group of mutants gathered to fight another group of mutants over a mutant registration law while an ambush on UN meeting must be stopped. Well...this happened in 2000 long before the Avengers Civil War happened. It's cool how this film looks of possible ways to solve a problem. With the X-Men as the good guys who wanna have a conversation about mutants living besides humans. Meanwhile there is Magneto who wants to transform humans into mutants (in his mind the next step of the evolution) and a Senator who thinks mutants are living weapons and who wants weapons in a school? (see what they did there? he's bad, but is arguing is kinda okay). The whole movie is about people fighting for the right cause with the wrong means. And btw. all the actual fights are taking place without annoying one liners by the participants. A fight is a fight. That feels so good!

if this film was not made, where do you think superhero films would be right now? i have the same question...

Hugh Jackman really brought Wolverine alive for the first time on the big screen, with mostly a great casting of Professor X, Storm but Sabre tooth and a few were not as good as we had hoped versus the other well cast ones.

Great casting.Love the Magneto and Xavier dynamic...good story and pacing.

Pretty good, but still lacks the punch that many superhero movies have.

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.

X-Men not only houses epic action, combined with deep storytelling, but also remains a benchmark for future superhero movies, and features a stunning cast portraying badass and memorable characters.
