Storyline

When a "cure" is created, which apparently can turn any mutant into a "normal" human being, there is outrage amongst the mutant community. While some mutants do like the idea of a "cure", including Rogue, many mutants find that there shouldn't be a "cure". Magneto, who still believes a war is coming, recruits a large team of mutants to take down Warren Worthington II and his "cure". Might seem easy for the X-Men to stop, but Magneto has a big advantage, which Wolverine doesn't have. Jean Grey has returned, and joined with Magneto. The Dark Phoenix has woken within her, which has the ability to destroy anything in her way, even if that "anything" is an X-Man. Written by rsanchez

Did You Know?

Trivia

(At around one hour and twenty-two minutes) Cain Marko's line "Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!" was inspired by a popular web parody movie that made use of scenes from X-Men: The Animated Series (1992). Throughout the parody , the Juggernaut character repeatedly says, "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!" According to wikipedia.com, Brett Ratner has a link to this parody on his own website. (Whether or not the parody was inspired by a misheard line from an old X-Men video game, is irrelevant to this movie's usage of this line, since it's clearly an homage to the web parody). See more »

Goofs

The two opening scenes are established as taking place 20 and 10 years ago. Then after the opening credits, the rest of the film is said to be taking place in the not too distant future. While the exact date of this future is never exactly elaborated on, neither is when exactly the 20 and 10 years ago scenes take place from. Either from the then present day of 2006 (when the film was originally released) or the previously mentioned not too distant future. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Eric Lensherr: I still don't know why *I'm* here. Couldn't you just make them say yes?
Prof. Charles Xavier: Yes, I could, but it's not my way. And I would expect you, of all people would understand my feelings about the misuse of power.
Eric Lensherr: Ah, "power corrupts" and all that. Yes, I know, Charles. When are you going to stop lecturing me?
Prof. Charles Xavier: When you start listening. And you're here because I need you.

No Emotional Weight, But Not As Bad As People Say
26 February 2019 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

Continuing my plan to watch every Hugh Jackman movie in order, I come to X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)

Plot In A Paragraph: The human government develops a cure for mutations, and Jean Gray becomes a darker uncontrollable persona called the Phoenix who allies with Magneto, causing escalation into an all-out battle for the X-Men.

I like the moral conflict in this one, but it focuses too much on the action set pieces over the emotional storyline of the chance to be "cured" of their mutant gene. To start with Magneto has a valid point, but he essentially becomes a terrorist.

All the returning cast are fine, whilst Kelsey Grammer is a welcome addition, as was Ellen Page, Vinnie Jones however is not.

Rouge (such a big part of the first movie) is left in the background again in this one, which is a shame, as her story could have added some much needed emotional weight to the story.

I don't think it's as bad as people say, but is easily the weakest on the three.

X-Men: The Last Stand grossed $234 million at the domestic box office, to be the 4th grossing movie of 2006.
