Professor Charles Xavier, who owns a school for young mutants, sends Storm and Cyclops to bring them back before it is too late.

(at around 11 mins) When we see Wolverine's first full cage fight, every hit he took or made should have sounded metallic due to his adamantium enhancements, but we only hear the sound when Wolverine himself hits his opponent. See more »
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier:
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?
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.
