X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
Lacks the heart and soul of the original...lacks Singer (possible spoiler)
Okay....I was really wanting to give this movie a chance. I have had no beef with Bret Ratner until actually seeing this movie. I actually enjoyed the Rush Hour movies and Red Dragon, however...now I'm overjoyed to say that I know Superman (my favorite superhero ever) is going to be wonderful.
The core concept of this movie...that there is a cure for mutants...needs exploration and delving into the way it affects the characters more. Singer would have done this. With Ratner it seems to be that all the characters are sitting around saying "this sucks....okay whose ass can we kick now?" I read the novelization and it actually had me excited...and pretty jazzed about the movie...the tone was slightly different...but I thought if Ratner did it right....it could be pretty good and a fitting conclusion to what could have been an excellent superhero trilogy.
That being said...things were slightly different in the novel...such as Rouge's fate. All in all...this movie left me....disappointed and even more excited for Superman Returns, a superhero movie that will be done right.
