I found it decent. Great action,but not much else. Beast and Kitty Pride were pretty good.

Yup, a limp ending to a great series. Shame things turned out like this.

Lots of action but there was no soul to it as in previous films. And why start killing off main characters, Cyclops deserved a better death scene(if he is dead).

Truth. But I did wind up enjoying it in a "well at least it looked cool and there were some good moments" kind of way.

Yeah, but it makes sense from a movie stand point that his death occurred off screen. If they would have shown what happened to him, Xavier's death would have had less, or no impact.

I myself was surprised at how many main characters died as well. Maybe it was the studio's way of saying"Yes,this IS the final film in the series." Let's kill everyone off! Of course,the killed Jean Grey off in X2 and she came back as Phoenix. Plus,don't forget that little clip at the very end of the credits. Wink

This thread is missing something. Hmmm, what could it be?

Ratner can't direct. I don't know how he still gets work. The movie was OK, but I've only seen it once, so maybe I'll think less/more of it upon repeated viewings.

I had fun, but it's typical Brett Ratner:

Rushed, cheesy, vapid, superficial, short, and features non-stop action.

I had a lot fun with it, even with the flaws, and Ellen Page is to die for. Amazing how she could make Kitty Pryde so cool.

It's admittedly a weak "end" to the franchise, but it's nothing you can't expect from Brett Ratner.

There's a lot of praise for Page in these boards, but is it just people more into hwho she is in regasrds to her role in Hard Candy or actually as Kitty Pryde. While Page did well with what little material she had in X-Men, I can't say it really stood out enough. And it's not her fault. Kitty Pryde was just another under-developed character simply there as a plot device to create a inbalance in Bobby and Rogue's relationship leading to Rogue's search for the "Cure". Then there was the whole the "race" against the Juggernaut which was cool but only made me want more. In between were minute scenes of her sadness toward Xavier's fate, but those scenes are so rushed and empty that there is very little impact.

I just wished they treated the character with a little more importance to the X-Men universe and to the Xavier school than they did.
