Fresh: There's a lot going on in this film %u2013- too much, really...
- Brandon Fibbs, BrandonFibbs.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Though it's not the best installment of the series, with many, many present flaws, it sure is a very entertaining film...
- Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed, Thursday, April 29, 2010
Fresh: Yes, Ratners music-video attention span and inability to linger on a shot ... blunts the impact of some of the] big emotional moments. Nonetheless, he liked Singers films as much as you did, and he hasnt tried to fix what ain't broke.

What a tremendous failure. This movie was a flash flop. The acting was disappointing, the story sucked, and the effects were too flashy. They killed off almost all the cool characters of the X-Men universe or took away there powers and I felt really cheated becuase I love the first two X-Men a lot. Its just all the actors whining or being assholes to eachother, nothing more. I hated this entry in the X-Men films and will never like it, and I am very ashamed of the X-Men fans who did, becaus eit truly ruined the whole series.

The action and visuals may be good enough, but this entry in the X-men franchise lacks the heart of the previous two. The story lacks the epic feel of X2 and tends to be too busy with itself. The film is inherits the flaw in the first film, which was the plot being too Wolverine-centered. Characters like Storm, Jean Grey, or Xavier come across as one dimensional this time around. The introduction of characters like Angel(who does nothing) and Juggernaut just feel like shallow fan service. There are also many plot threads in this film that just feel like pointless filler. When Jean Grey turns into the Phoenix, it is supposed to be scary but it ends up being funny because Jean looks like she had a bad make-up job. The action and visuals are brilliant as always but the story is poorly conceived. All X-men 3 amounts to are cheap thrills and a disappointing conclusion to the X-men trilogy.

The final (?) chapter of the X-Men movies blends perfectly into the mood of its two predecessors, even though it had a different director. Seeing the crew again almost feels like meeting old friends, the characters of the X-men, both old and new additions, are humans just as much as super heroes and their interaction take this beyond the level of a pure action flick, causing emotions and feelings in the viewer. The great cast helps that impression, of course. The special effects are fantastic, the pace fast, yet not rushed and the showdown is very exciting and spectacular. A lot of fans didn't like some character's ultimate demise here, but at least the movie dared to go there and didn't play it safe as third part. Not flawless but very enjoyable, only slightly behind the greatness of part 2. Still the best superhero movie series, though.
