Slate
It's a rich, impressive comic-book fantasy -- easily the summer's best "blockbuster."

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Singer deftly crafts a sleek, unusually tight film that balances comic-book adventure, pulp opera and the fear of being different.

Village Voice
When it comes to stoopid fun, X-Men could be the summer movie to beat.
75
Miami Herald
The most enjoyable piece of pop fantasy of the summer; sleek, elegant, exciting and wildly, outrageously imaginative.

The film's greatest strength lies in its ability to view itself as a modern moral fable of sorts.

Boston Globe
Recedes to a string of mere action exploits. These are proficiently executed but, for all their visual authority, not much more than routine.
50
Christian Science Monitor
The mood is awfully dark for an escapist fantasy, though, and the high-tech mayhem gets repetitious.

A very odd cinematic creature.

USA Today
Missing are well-choreographed action scenes, likable characters and involving plot twists.
38
Superhero comic book movie with a script so feeble it might have been written with crayons.
