In the 1960s, superpowered humans Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr work together to find others like them, but Erik's vengeful pursuit of an ambitious mutant who ruined his life causes a schism to divide them.
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.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN.Written by

The Coast Guard cutter in Miami has "US Coast Guard" painted on its hull. Coast Guard cutters didn't add the letters "US" to their hulls until the 1990's. Before that they just said "Coast Guard" See more »
Mother. What are you... I thought you were a burglar.
I didn't mean to scare you, darling. I was just getting a snack. Go back to bed. What's the matter? Go on, back to bed.I, I'll make you a hot chocolate.
Who are you? And what have you done with my mother?
[telepathically in her mind]
My mother has never set foot in this kitchen in her life. And she certainly never made me a hot chocolate, unless you count ordering the maid to do it.

Part of the closing credits take place in a sequence of X-symbols, chromosomes and DNA strands (reminiscent of the opening credits to Dr. No (1962)). See more »

usually I am not a fan of marvel comics, but i made an exception for this one :) If you followed the comic book series, it uses similarities from the comics to the movie. And we also get a cameo appearance from Hugh Jackman(Wolverine). I may have not noticed the infamous stan lee appearance that he always makes in the movies that deal with his comics. But I am sure it was there. I think its a great movie for ages 5 to adult. It has history, very mild violence, some comedy, drama, and romance. All the elements to live up to the X-Men franchise. It is not at all disappointing if you have knowledge of the other movies or the comic book series. That is the only flaw I see. It is definitely a tribute to the fans of X-Men. Personally I am a DC comic books fan, but if you are a comic fan or just a fan of the movie series your in for a treat :) but if you have no knowledge of either of those things you will be disappointed.
