Trivia

It's ironic that Sir Ian McKellen, who plays the Jewish character Magneto, had earlier played a Nazi in Apt Pupil (1998). Michael Fassbender, who would play Magneto in this prequel X-Men: First Class (2011), had earlier played Allied Forces soldiers in Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Band of Brothers (2001) (thus going the other way from McKellen).

When Wolverine is at the mansion after the initial car accident. We see him removing the sticky electrode pads from his chest which leave circular red marks on his skin. These marks remain on his skin for the rest of the shot, though they should have healed seconds or less like his other injuries in film. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: [narration] Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.

X-cellent!
13 July 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A tale of super-evolved mutants in a struggle against human oppressors, X-Men is an instant sci-fi classic, combining impressive special effects with an involving plot to create a truly memorable cinematic experience.

Lacking the tongue-in-cheek camp of the later Batman films and other recent comic books-turned movies, X-Men draws the audience into its world of mutants and superpowers, and prevents it from becoming tacky or absurd. Not to say that there isn't any humour in the film, in fact it delivers some of the best one liners in a film this year.

It is a rare thing for an action blockbuster to feature great acting, but with a cast that among others involves both Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen is bound to be above average. Both Stewart (as Professor Charles Xavier) and McKellen (as Magneto)deliver stellar performances, and their onscreen chemistry is compelling as they play two old friends turned arch enemies.

The rest of the cast deliver solid performances, including Hollywood newcomer Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Oscar-winner Anna Paquin as Rogue, and another rising star Rebecca Romijn-Stamos as the seductive but deadly Mystique.

A classic tale of good versus evil, with heroes, baddies, and great special effects, I don't think it's going too far to say that X-Men is destined to be mentioned in the same breath as Star Wars and other all-time sci-fi greats.
