2/10/2017: A pretty decent flick. A good story with an excellent cast.
½ February 9, 2017
Like many other excellent movie franchises, X-Men begins with a rough start, with corny acting, terrible effects, with the story only saving the movie to a small degree.

A good cast, a good plot and what you'd expect when comics are brought to the big screen.

A little stop-start but this is a well-cast beginning to the series and it definitely has a strong core of themes of prejudice and dealing with difference. Unfortunately it's a bit burdened by being the first in the series and as such has to lay down the platform for the rest, which takes up quite a bit of time and energy. Jackman is cleaner and not as gruff as he gets later in the series but is engaging as our somewhat anti-heroic eyes into the new world. Stewart and McKellen have an amazing energy together as rivals, and their years together as castmates outside of the series really shows. Janssen has a great edge of holding back on this part of the series, knowing that she has more to come. Paquin is a McGuffin but warmly sympathetic. Romjin-Stamos is also intense but has some very strange moments toward the end that detract from the whole.

X men is a good movie, it's definitely dated but at the time of its release it was amazing, but now it's dated, some could be an allegory for gay rights of women's rights but have mostly been a allegory for real world problems, but it's good, good acting, good special effects, good plot, good characters, good special effects sure now they look and the look of this movie is silly but is good

X-Men has some very good scenes, strong acting, solidly executed action sequences and it is groundbreaking being one of the first serious superhero films, but the direction, the script and the characters are never as sophisticated or as engaging as they will be in some of the later entries in the franchise.

A visually stunning start to a great series of X-men films!

X-Men is a definitive first step for Bryan Singer to make a X-Men franchise creatable. Some effects are not that good though amazing for the year starting a new decade of 2000. Casting is revolutionary with Hugh Jackman as a perfect Wolverine and Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen with Magneto & Professor X. Some cheesy dialogue fits into the X-men style, but too often there's a lot. Besides those, this movie is inferior to Spider-Man by Sam Raimi, but it will leave fans smiling after finish the film.

I have to say this wasn't too bad, for their first shot at this movie. I mean "yeah", Sabretooth was really stupid, Halle Berry gave a Storm portrayal on par with her Catwoman, and Rogue was absolutely NOT "Rogue". But it wasn't too bad.

Great start to a franchise with tons of ups and downs.

As one of the very first Marvel films, it definitely shows that but, it's one of the better comic book movies of the early 2000s. Having a great director like Bryan Singer, and a cast such as Jackman, McKellin, Stewart and numerous more started a great franchise.

WHAT I LIKED: How do you introduce multiple characters in one movie, who's relationships and experiences all feel real? Bryan Singer knows how, thus 'X-Men' is a big achievement. Thanks to his direction and a great script, your connection to each mutant is established expertly from the outset, to the point where you're so engaged with Wolverine and his associates, that you even get a bit emotional at the end. This connection you feel to everyone makes for an engaging movie, and it also ensures the whole film is more tense because you're so involved
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.
½ November 8, 2016
While not as great as later movies, this one holds a special place in my heart from launching some of the all time best MARVEL movies

It's worth seeing. The acting was great and Wolverine's badass.

Really GOOD Start to The Xmen Franchise !
November 4, 2016
A solid origin film for the X-Men. Misses a few beats here and there but nothing serious.
