It has been several months since The X-Men stopped William Stryker, but that victory came at a price: they have lost Jean Grey when she tried to save them from the collapsed reservoir. Scott Summers (Cyclops) is still grieving about her loss. One day, he comes out to the place where Jean Grey sacrificed herself. Jean Grey appears right in front of him. Meanwhile, the rift between humans and mutants has finally reached the boiling point. Humans have discovered what causes humans to mutate and have found a cure for the mutation. The X-Men are appalled at this idea. When news about the cure comes to Magneto, he decides to organize an army of mutants and wage his war against the humans. When Jean Grey evolves into the Phoenix, her new mutant powers are so strong that she can not control her own body. Then, she kills off Professor X with her new powers. Now, The X-Men must stop Magneto again and put an end to the war against the humans, as well as stop Jean Grey's Phoenix powers. Written by
Budgeted at $210 million, this was at the time the most expensive film ever made. See more »
(at around 1 min) When Jean takes off Scott's glasses and asks him to open his eyes, her own eyes have changed from the previous movies; they are black. But in several shots it's clear she's wearing contacts; you can see the edges on her left eye. See more »
I still don't know why *I'm* here. Couldn't you just make them say yes?
Prof. Charles Xavier:
Yes, I could, but it's not my way. And I would expect you, of all people would understand my feelings about the misuse of power.
Ah, "power corrupts" and all that. Yes, I know, Charles. When are you going to stop lecturing me?
Prof. Charles Xavier:
When you start listening. And you're here because I need you.

It may be because this movie fits my demographic or perhaps because i love scifi and fantasy genre movies as long as they are good.
Any way you swing it however, if you do not want to go see X3 in theaters but wish to see only the DVD when it may came out you're missing the whole experience.
The emotional twists and turns that the film puts the viewer through cannot be summarized in one word...i don't think at least.
I laughed, i almost cried and i shivered as the movie reached its climax. The lines were told at the perfect time, the acting was on par and the special effects were right up there where they should be.
For the 1 hour and a half this movie has lasted everyone embarked a ride they have enjoyed throughly and to the end. Best money i spent this year and that's for sure.
PS: Make sure you stay after the credits...another emotion i felt. One which ill leave to you to discover.
