Trivia

Hugh Jackman played Wolverine for seventeen years and nine films (if you count Deadpool 2 (2018), eighteen years and ten films), making him is one of the longest running actors to play a superhero role. See more »

Goofs

The stealth helmet that Magneto wears is supposed to protect him from Charles reading his mind or locating him with Cerebro. The helmet covers the thickest part of his skull, leaving the thinnest part fully exposed--his face. It is unreasonable to assume that this would not be a big enough area for the professor's powers to penetrate. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: [narration] Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.

Can your comic heros really come to life?
29 November 2000 | by cherry2xSee all my reviews

The answer to that question can be found in this movie with a resounding YES. Being a fan of X-Men comics and cartoons, I watched this movie with great skepticism. It was wonderful how the characters remained true to the comics.

The special powers that our mutant heros and villains possess are displayed exceptionally. It made me wish that I could have a special power of my own.

Enough can not be said of the phenomenal cast of actors that were selected for their roles. Not only did they fit their parts perfectly, but they made you believe. Bravo to Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen and a host of actors who were lucky enough to take part in this adventure.

Bryan Singer does a fantastic job of bringing it all together. The special effects in this movie, only enhance the great script and acting. After seeing the DVD with the outtakes, the editing was quite effective.

The true battle of good versus evil can always make for a great story but when a comic book is adapted to film and you feel that what you see is really possible, it is a true stroke of genius.
