A complete mess, and a massive letdown after the fantastic X2. If only Bryan Singer didn't have such a hard-on for Superman.

Took everything the second movie had established and crapped all over it. The thing was just a revolving-door of one-dimensional characters, and all the subtlety of the last one had vanished. The point at which the movie REALLY stopped making sense was when Magneto air-lifted the bridge to Alcatraz, and conveniently made sure to extend it to the mainland as well. You know, in case the army wanted to mount a counterattack and surround him. But hey, they killed James Marsden, so that's worth a 40!

Not as bad as I expected, but far from the brilliant X2. I don't think the problems are really Ratner's fault: the action sequences look fine, direction was adequate. The acting, too, is stellar, especially from McKellan. The fault is the writing: interesting and complex characters like Pyro are reduced to caracitures; some events happen for no particular reason, while others are left woefully underdeveloped; painful dialogue and unnecessary plot devices (e.g Mutant Class system), etc.

By far the worst. It was definitely the best looking film, and the money and SFX are far and above what we saw in the first one. The problem is (and I say this as someone who only partially enjoyed the first one) the script is non-existent, it makes no sense and there is no character development. I've sat here and mulled it over for a few hours and yes, a character literally flew by on screen for no reason. I like Ben Foster, but it's like they pasted him in just to get another mutant in.

Ok finale (?) for the x-men series. Due to the troubled production history, it was a wonder it wasn't a bunch of stock footage put together. Nonetheless, Ratner puts together some bravura action scenes surrounded by an extremely boring plot involving a possible mutant cure. It's a shame that Singer decided to leave this franchise...He would've had a field day with that plot. Unfortunately, Ratner drops the ball most times and only shines during those aforementioned action scenes.

I'm so bummed that I didn't find this movie on par with the first two. I thought the story lines were slightly lacking, and was not satisfied with the end. There were plots and characters that seemed to be in the movie for reasons that never got developed and the plots that were developed left me either confused or questioning if there were holes. Oh well, we can hope for another, better, one.

Quite possibly the best of the serries, this movie explores the depth of what it is to be exceptional and associated difficulty. Just like the orriginal works of Stan Lee this movie (though it doesn't hold the story-line quite faithfully) brings out his true style. Being different or conforming has little to do with the quality of your character, and even the best of us have our weaknesses.

Good action but it's really clear they switched writers. It's quite distracting to see established characters break character. On a personal note I was really disappointed that Ben Foster, Angel, didn't get more screen time because he's a great actor. With all that said, the action is still very cool and entertaining it's just disappointing that the story isn't up to par with the first two.

Brett Ratner isn't up to par with Bryan Singer in terms of the last X-film, but "X3" is a satisfying action-yarn that exists purely as popcorn entertainment with a handful of goofy lines, great action sequences, and a breakneck pace. I don't understand all the hate for this one. It introduces some stupid characters, barely scratches the surface of others and then kills off some favorites, but overall, it's an entertaining action ride with a plot that I liked. I think it's in tune with "X1".

The third installment of the X-Men series fails because they try too hard to introduce us to a lot of characters that fanboys and fangirls were salivating for. You can please some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but when you simply try to please every basement dweller on Earth all the time, you end up shooting yourself in the foot and letting people who enjoy movies down immensely.

"The Last Stand" punctuates some of the best and some of the worst traits of the X-Men films. The social commentary and the moral dilemmas (being afraid of anything different, being tempted to conform in order to belong and how someone can hijack your vulnerabilities or fears for their own interests) are at the forefront of the film's plot. This more intelligent side of the franchise is contrasted by the amount of corny or silly dialogues. In any case, the solid action is the film's safety net.

Definitely not the most disappointing movie in the whole franchise, but X-Men: The Last Stand doesn't try to tell a story worth telling. and it disposes of it's good characters to replace them with brown paper-bag mutants who aren't worth caring about. Story drags it down in some spots, even if it does end what is a good trilogy overall. Should have been way better. Post credit scene is hard to understand if you don't follow the comics too. Good acting and effects help make it better I guess.

X3 is definitely the worst film in the series. Brett Ratner doesn't have any understanding of the characters or material that Bryan Singer did. The series has lost the heart, plot direction and character development that first two films so brilliantly balanced. Instead more explosions and less convincing set pieces are added. With the result being a very dull third act. Too many original characters are killed off too soon and new additions are poorly introduced. An awful and forgettable sequel.

When I was in high school - high school, mind you - there was a moment I stood up in the middle of the theater in a "fuck you" posture and had to stumble over a couple of Professor X and Logan cosplays with their fake wheelchairs and toy claws in righteous indignation as I left the theater. I like to say I grew up since then, but this movie's still shit.

Last stand? More like "can't stand." Hack-a-licious director Brett Ratner tarnishes the legacy of Bryan Singer's above-average superhero series with this lazy, unimaginative bore. Forget all the subtlety and coolness from the first two X-Men movies, because Ratner's replaced them with cheap-looking FX, incoherent storytelling, and barely disguised misogyny.

The action is so heart-poundingly intense that it feels like exercise. That's a plus, but something else was missing. It needed more time to develop some bits that could have made it much deeper and more captivating. It had chances, but they fell flat. I blame Brett Ratner, who simply isn't Brian Singer, but overall, it was a fine and fun trilogy ender. Really good!

I liked everything that happened in this movie, and I thought the new director did a good job, but it was too brief. Things happen to quickly and without much effect on the characters. This movie could have used another good 10-20 minutes, just to let us see how the characters react to the events unfolding.

A disappointing finale; seemed to get away from the character-driven aspects of the first two films and ended up being a (generally lackluster) typical "action flick." Perhaps the change in director was at fault. In any event, it was interesting to see the conclusion but I wish it had been better!

After Bryan Singer's departure, this X-men film has the reputation of being the worst of the original three. It has well earned that reputation, however the film is more a disappointment than it is a bad movie. The direction lacks subtly with a script that lacked much depth, literally jumping the Golden Gate Bridge in the last 30 minutes. All that, on top of being a let down as a sequel to one of the best comic book movies yet. The movie feels more hollow than anything

Decent action movie, horrible X-Men movie. Sort of directionless in the first half. Kelsey Grammer delivers, but everything else was a joke. The end basically defeats the entire purpose of the plot, glaring flaws are noticeable (the immediate change from daytime to nightfall during the climax), and about a dozen things done purely for shock value. Comic fans will be pissed.

The movie catches a lot of flack for being a step down from the first two, which it is. It also catches flack for being too different from the comic stories its based on, which is also true. All that in consideration The Last Stand still works as a power filled X-Men action fest with some decent performances and worthwhile emotion moments to spare. Assuming one can accept the total mistreatment of the Dark Phoenix character.

Maybe not QUITE as bad as its reputation suggests, but it's definitely not good. When you think of what *could* have been in this movie, what we got - despite a strong concept and some good acting - was really quite disappointing. Way too many characters end up feeling totally inconsequential, and it's obvious that some of the actors had scheduling conflicts. Shame, but at least the series would recover eventually.

While it's more of the same of the previous contingent of x-men live action films, it somehow digs a little deeper in to the absurd of a comic book world. As a result, you have more of the comic book cheese, coupled with cursory characters that are just there. For instance, throughout the entire film the wings guy is just flying around. That's basically all he does.

There are good ideas here, but it's just so lazy. Lots of decent setups with no real payoff, dialog that is functional but doesn't really do much other than explain or give lines for a trailer, subplots that don't quite go anywhere. I mean, you've got wing guy, who shows up I think three times and does nothing of consequence, as though they couldn't be bothered to give him a story but also had a wing costume so might as well throw him in there.

There are some potentially compelling ideas in this movie, which are immediately shattered when Fox hired known hack and all around terrible person Brett Ratner to direct this.
