X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
It was great!!! Awesome!!
I was concerned that Routh wouldn't be able to pull it off, but he brought Superman across really well. The scenes with the plane plummeting toward the earth are fantastic as was the scene with he bullet bouncing off of Supe's eye. Just awesome!And that was just the trailer!
X-men 3? In one word - Disappointing. Here are my reasons for saying so.
First, I agree with others that there were too many mutants and not enough character development. Seconedly, I noticed a few continuity problems, but won't go into detail. Thirdly, Halle Berry's character had too much of a part. I realize that she wanted more, but has it occurred to her that people don't want to see that much of her? Give the character enough of a part but then step kindly away because your big ego gets in the way. Fourthly, they just killed Cyclops and Xavier off too early. I didn't grow up reading X-Men so I don't know if this happened to them in the comics, but I felt at least that it was too soon in the film. I kept saying to myself,"Surely not, Scott and Prof. X are in some sort of stasis or dimension. At the end, I hear that Prof. X does come back. Hmmm. Lastly, the story was too rushed. The crammed two story lines into an hour and 40 minute time slot.
In all, the movie just left my wife and I with a sagging depression. For me, partly because so many characters I loved about the first two films were killed off in this one. Even if they did make a fourth movie, I wouldn't want to see it if they weren't there. Maybe that's just me. It's also partly because a potential good movie was ruined by a rushed storyline and...lousy director? Fox definitely should have waited for Singer to return. This is where impatience gets you - a sagging depressing movie. Thanks Rattner, thanks a lot!
