When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a "Super-Soldier serum". But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization.
Samuel L. Jackson
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
Josh Holloway was offered the role of Gambit, but turned it down as it was too similar to the role he was then playing on Lost (2004). Consequently, the character was written out, though Gambit showed up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), where he was played by Taylor Kitsch. In 2014, it was announced that Channing Tatum would play the character in future installments of the franchise. 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.
