      This has to be the most cynical Nostalgic Critic has ever been, this review is NITPICK OVERLOAD, the problem he have aren’t big problems and can be easily defensible or don’t matter, usually when he’s reviewing a good we all like he’s at least funny but I laughed very few times and the rest of the time he’s just being a asshole for no reason. So in my opinion this the worst Nostalgia Critic review ever

          22:28 Thats fast moving water, I dont think Iceman could freeze it in time, Storm controls weather not water, Xavier is a telepath, not a telekinetic, thatll be doing two things at the same time especially in the confines of a plane.

              I still really think Xavier speaking for Jean to say goodbye was a reference to Stewart's part in Lifeforce. Not the first time he's been possessed by a hot chick. Granted, space vampire, but still.

              Also, you should totally do Lifeforce. The X2 reference is a gimme.

                    When you mock the movie for not respecting the sourve material while you dont understand the source material yourself. NC has done some good and bad reviews. Its ironic that channel has the same problems he mocks the movie industry for having.

                    And the channel really needs to stop doing several reviews on same movie same with different format. Spend that extra time on quality control.

                            In the movie novel I think Jean DID lift the plane from the inside of it ??? I dunno the writing was kinda dodgy.

                              Dude, for such a big X-Men fan, you seem very ignorant to the fact that Rogue wasn’t super strong and couldn’t fly until she grabbed onto Ms. Marvel and held on so long that she stole those powers permanently. She wasn’t born with these abilities

                                Watching this movie after Dark Phoenix released and hearing it sucked, makes me wonder....
                                Did NC predict Dark Phoenix, or was it just obvious to some people?

                                        That part where Wolverine gets shots was weird why did he go down and only get back up after the bullet came out it not like it hit his brain ? Does this bother anyone else ?

                                          I can buy Logan being able to start a car with his claws, since it's a pretty neat skill to have and he's got all the time in the world.

                                                      If he did, he would be flying everywhere instead of being confined to a wheelchair.

                                                                Listen to what brian cox says.

                                                                Far from it.
                                                                What hes telling logan is they were partners. "But he calls him an animal!" Ever consider the falling out came later? After all the work they did?
                                                                Im pissed at how this played out in later movies protraying wolverine as just another lacky/being unwilling.
                                                                Imagine had it turned out that logan was helping experiment on people. Maybe even helped start the project.
                                                                That He was the bad guy. That sometime after the experiment on himself that he had his change of heart turning on stryker- brutally murdering people in the proccess (starting stryker down the dark road of genocide his son would later make worse) and making him view logan as a monster and an animal.
                                                                This was all before strykers son would have been born and his sons psychopathic torturing of stryker and his wife was what drove him into wanting to kill mutants, rather than the experiments to improve them theyd done for so long.
                                                                Instead? We got xmen origins wolverine.

So in my opinion this the worst Nostalgia Critic review ever

I wanted to see cool mutants do cool mutant things, I’m still waiting to see that! All the X-men movies have one cool scene, but it’s short and you get nothing else. Does cyclops shoot more then once in a movie? NO! You see a mutant use their powers once and that’s it, lame! I wanna see an X-men movie where they go on SEVERAL missions and work together using their powers together in an awesome way! 6 movies and I’m still waiting! Logan is the only really good movie!
