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.
It's simply a great adaptation to the comics, has a balance between story-telling and action, The casting for each character is surprisingly well-done, for example, could you tell me an actor who would fit as Wolverine better than Hugh Jackman? Or Professor X who is portrayed by an actor other than Patrick Stewart? I don't think it will work without them. Moreover, the plot is organized, and there was justice between every character and their abilities. All I can say is that movie is in my opinion underrated and it's the best one out of the trilogy, and its one of the best comic movies ever. Thank You Bryan Singer.
Overall score: 8.5/10 (Great).
As a fan of superhero movies, I'd probably rate this a 9/10
but from a filmmaking & casual movie go-er's perspective (Meaning realistic) I'll stick with a 8.5/10, Recommended.
It doesn't hold up too well, but X-Men is still a fun and entertaining superhero movie, that was the beginning of the superhero obsessed world we live in today.
