Didn't stay for the scene after the end credits, though.
I realize everyone has different tastes, but I'm curious to hear your reasons for not liking any of the X-men movies - especially X2.

Generally, these films based on comic books have no plot and are filled with lame/cheesy dialouge.

I don't have X-Men 2 fresh in my mind, but I remember liking the The Last Stand more than the sequel.

I can agree on both Spider-Man films but I don't remember Batman at all. I must've been 5 when I saw it. I don't even think I spoke English back then!

just saw the movie, and I really liked it however it was very short so either an extended DVD is planned or they had no time to edit the movie properly.

a few observations...

The CGI was great except for Colossus who they nailed in X2.

they missed a fight between Colossus and Juggernaut !!

Shouldn't Wolverine had given Phoenix "the cure" instead of killing her??

oh and Angel need more scenes

ok that was the geek in me I used to collect X-men comics and my last storyline was the age of apocalypse

As a fan of the comics through the mid-90s (stopped reading in college, and they're too confusing to start up again now), I really liked X3. It wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed it.

I'm too lazy to write a full-on review here..maybe I will later. There's plenty of plot in the X-Men movies, and I think the high action-to-plot ratio of X3 is typical for movies that are third in a trilogy.

The sequel/prequels will be interesting. The Wolverine one should be best, as the character's awesome, Hugh is awesome, and there's a ton to play with. I just hope they give him as good a movie as he deserves ("he" being both Wolvie & Hugh!). There's talk of a Magneto movie, which could be cool. Rumors of a Storm movie....eh. I think Halle Berry would kill a Storm movie the same way she killed Catwoman. Anyway....

Perhaps the best line in the movie was, "Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!" It's highly likely the got that from this video:

The Spider-man flicks are full of cheesy dialogue - that's part of their charm.

Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins is probably the most serious and intelligent comic book film there is so far.

yeah, they do, but atleast they have strong plotlines and are enjoyable to casual moviegoers.

I was entertained and enjoyed it overall. The last clip (after the credits); although short was crucial...I think we'll most likely see a fourth installment!

$196 Million Worldwide, But Still No X4 Plans?
Avi Arad tells Variety that they are going to move forward with the two spin-off movies instead of X-Men 4:

A big second frame decline is thus likely. But with nearly $200 million in domestic grosses by next weekend a virtual lock, Fox execs won't be shedding too many tears.

More likely, they'll be talking to their partners at Marvel about the next step for the franchise, since "Last Stand" was supposed to be the final film in a trilogy.

"The first reaction, which we should discard, is here comes 'X-Men 4,'" said Marvel Studios topper Avi Arad. "We're working on 'Wolverine,' which is definitely a continuation, and we have a very interesting script about a young Magneto."
