Cast overview, first billed only:


When a cure is created, which apparently can turn any mutant into a normal human being, there is outrage amongst the mutant community. Whilst some mutants do like the idea of a cure, including Rogue, many mutants find that there shouldn't be a cure. Magneto, who still believes a war is coming, recruits a large team of mutants to take down Warren Worthington II and his cure. Might seem easy for the X-Men to stop, but Magneto has a big advantage, which Wolverine doesn't have. Jean Grey has returned, and joined with Magneto. The Phoenix has woken within her, which has the ability to destroy anything in her way, even if that 'anything' is a X-Men. Written by rsanchez

Did You Know?


The Worthington Labs building in San Francisco Bay (where Angel breaks free and flies off) is actually the Sheraton Hotel Wall Centre in Vancouver, Canada. In a remarkable coincidence, it is just across the street from St. Andrew's Wesley Church, the same church where Jean and Storm find Nightcrawler in X-Men 2 (2003). 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 »


[first lines]
Eric Lensherr: 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.
Eric Lensherr: 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.

User Reviews

I miss Bryan Singer
29 May 2006 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This film is a perfect case for why Hollywood isn't doing well at the box office. The film takes a franchise of two good films and regurgitates generic Hollywood crap.

The dialogue in this film is full of cliché statements, and corny attempts at statements with deep meaning.. The dialogue sounds like the script of a novice, offering nothing to the characters.

Another failure of the film is character development. While the comics provide histories for the characters, none is given for the newly introduced characters. The viewer is left to simply accept the character at face value, without any explanation for their character, their history, or their power. Even the developed characters lack any depth of the previous films.

Overall the story seems rushed. The director seems to push the film forward through the action and thus the film suffers.

If you like the first two films then I would suggest not seeing this one. You would miss nothing.
