      It's definitely the worst of the first three. I thought it was the worst until
      X-Men: First Class came out. I hate that movie so much.

      Logan was written and performed better. X3 was a total mess. The first 2 were the best. The end.

        And this has told me why Doug lost my respect as a critic.

        To paraphrase - “Out of the original three, I’d watch this one cause it’s the most entertaining cause it has action ‘n stuff”

        Wow. Seriously, wow.

                        Actually I liked this X-Men movie. The fact is that the other movies rode on this story and after its events. It also makes X-Men and the Days of the Future Past have more of a punch as well as it fixes the issues the movie had. If you watch this movie and continue on with the other movies it actually is good.

                                                                I always hated how one-sided the characters are on this, like maybe mutants like Rouge who kill everything they touch or Beast who have deep-seated selfsteem issues could benefit from the cure, but no, let's demonize everyone who wants to take the cure because how dare them reject something that impacts their life negatively.

                                                                It's like body positivity, going far beyond "It's okay if you don't look like a model as long as you're healthy and happy" and way into "If you don't chersh your morbid obesity that will result in early death then you're a bigot with internalized hatred!!!"

                                                                Of course mutants like Storm and Iceman think like that, for them their mutation is not a problem, it's all about controlling climate or making ice sculptures while being in perfect control of their abilities and appearance, but what if one day Storm just started generating storms anywhere she goes without wanting to, or what if Iceman suddenly couldn't return to his human form after transforming and had to live in a freezer for the rest of his life? Something tells me they would then have a different perception of this issue.

                                                                Their position is akin to telling you you should be okay with your malignant tumor just because they happen to be okay with their dimples, both are mutations but only one is a shit deal.

                                                                                      I get, and even agree with, a lot of the criticisms of the movie, but I think it's worth the occasional watch because this Beast is far better than the pseudo-prequel films. And I've got a massive man crush on Hugh Jackman. Seriously, I sat through Movie 43 because he was in it...

                                                                                          "What you would do in these situations."
                                                                                          Give Mutants equal rights and create special divisions in both Law Enforcement and the Military for Mutant Enlistees with higher pay than the humans Cops and Soldiers?
                                                                                          Offer a special analysis service of Mutant Powers for Volunteers and for those with particular power that benefits certain fields, potential set them up with special jobs in construction, labs, engineering, etc and make sure to emphasize it's on a Voluntary basis.
                                                                                          Likewise, Create American Equivalent of French Foreign Legion for Mutants for Mutant Refugees and Immigrants, again on a Voluntary basis.

                                                                                          .....Isn't Juggernaut a Dude empowered by a War God, not a Mutant (Basically a Chosen of Khorne.)?

                                                                                          "Haha! Now I'm gonna be arrested, thrown back in jail, and probably have my powers taken away- Why did I agree to this?"
                                                                                          Even as a Kid the first time watching I wondered that exact thing.

                                                                                          Another part that bothered me Critic doesn't bring up, that part where he sends in 'The Pawns' who then get gunned down en masse by the cure guns.......only for him to send in the mutant who can make a sonic boom and make them drop/lose their weapons.
                                                                                          I went when I saw that "WHY DIDN'T YOU DO THAT FIRST!? Your pawns would be doing better if you did!"
                                                                                          Zhuge Liang would be ashamed of these levels of tactics.

                                                                                          Also what they did to Spyke from X-Men Evolution, like everything about him.

                                                                                          And Yeah, Kelsey Grammar as Beast was perfection.
