A story about this — 7 years ago
The third installment of the X Men films is an action packed one, it has scenes that many fans wish the first two had, just straight on mutant on mutant action (a mutant smorgasboard of fighting scenes), but the creators just took too many creative liberties, the whole story centers on a cure for mutants, so there are some main characters that get “cured” and some die and I don’t mean some background characters like Jubilee or something, these are characters that you’ll be shocked they actually had the balls to kill off, I respect that, but still, why?why?why? In the start that was what many fans after reading the script feared and it was true, and plus Brett “Rush Hour” Ratner being the helmer didn’t make things for the X Men look to good, some thought we had another Schumaker on our hands (of Batman & Robin fame). So if you take it at face value, Brett Ratner actually did a decent job, albeit with your usuall cheesy line here or there and a highly ridiculous scene involving the Golden Gate bridge. The film is enjoyable mainly because it has more muties, it has the feel of the comics as well as the 90’s cartoon, chaos and mayhem and most really sweet special effects, just enough to recomend it, if only they would get rid of some useless characters, some storylines where just unnecesarily overlapping.
