X-Men 3



Lots of mixed reviews so far. The most popular opinion seems to be that the first two were better, but others have said that it blows the first two out of the water.

Has anyone seen it yet? Thoughts?

I really can't wait to see it

There was a review by the local news movieguy and he says that like MI:3, it's all action without any plot or character development...

It looks good to me though, so I'll reserve my judgement until after I've screened it for myself.

I really couldn't care less what the "critics" think about any film, I'll make my own mind up, I'm taking the wife & bin lids to see it this afternoon, if its anything like the first 2 I'll be more than happy.

Must see

Thing is with trilogies, directors and co can generally rely on the previous two films for developing characters and attachment to them.....so they just let all hell loose in final film....I still expect to really love this film though...because well Wolverine is just badass.

Trilogy? I'll be amazed if there isn't an X-Men 4 somewhere in the future, probably 5, or 6 years away, after the Wolverine, & Magneto spin-offs.

Jonathon Ross, interviewed Hugh Jackman, & Halle Berry on his show last night, he says probably the last 1, she says probably another, depending on success at the box office, according to most sites I've seen about the potential success of 3, No.4 will be a definite!

I saw it last night and it entertained me for sure. There WAS a lot of action. A few characters were develped and a few were not. Overall, enjoyable. I heard that it did not follow the comic at all, so fans of the comic would not enjoy it. I loved seeing all the different mutants. The ending left it open for a possible fourth movie. The fourth movie would have to be very different after all that happned in the third. I say if you liked the first two, you will be entertained by the third. Go see it.

Saw it yesterday. I would say X3 is better than X1, but not as good as X2.

I read somewhere that a fourth X-Men movie would have to depend on the box office sales of the third won (I'm crossing my fingers that Apocalypse, Omega Red and Gambit would make appearance in future sequels...if there are any).

A 4th movie would have to be a lot different...very enjoyable film...I especially like Jean's and Logans scene at the end. I would be happy if the movie just featured 3 hours of Wolverine doing his thing

It was pretty much all action though, some characters I thought left the movie a bit too early otherwise as I said good film. I think I like the first two overall...it is not much of a stepdown though.

By the way any comic book types know Wolverine's age? From the bits I know, he is meant to be pretty old...since his body constantly repairs itself at such a fast rate he doesn't age much.

I thought it was tight. The bridge scene was just badass.

Plus Wolverine is hot

however possibly the best part about going to see X3 was the preview to SNAKES ON A PLANE!!

When that preview came on, the entire theatre burst into laughter. ...What a joke.

I've been kicking myself for not staying through the credits though. From what I've heard, it leaves some interesting possibilities up in the air.

I think I'll go back and buy the 1st and 2nd on DVD. Xmen continues (and hopefully will continue) to be a solid series.
