Thrilling and entertaining movie that nicely caps off the X-Men trilogy while still leaving room for more story. Yes, there's lots of special effects (even more so than in the others), and yes, there's plenty of mutant battling (especially in the last thirty minutes of the movie). Don't expect to be bowled over by Kelsey Grammer's Beast, though; I kept waiting for him to call someone Niles. Swapping out Nightcrawler for Kitty Pryde was a great move, though; she provides tension between Rogue and Iceman PLUS steals several scenes. I will also warn you that if you are a fan of the comic, you will NOT anticipate some of the events that happen...One major nitpick with this film that I can't help but mention is notice what time of day it is right before the final attack...and then what time of day it is during the final attack. Bleh. Anyways, great popcorn film, awesome fights, and most of the new mutants are interesting.
