    Actually I liked this X-Men movie. The fact is that the other movies rode on this story and after its events. It also makes X-Men and the Days of the Future Past have more of a punch as well as it fixes the issues the movie had. If you watch this movie and continue on with the other movies it actually is good.

    I always hated how one-sided the characters are on this, like maybe mutants like Rouge who kill everything they touch or Beast who have deep-seated selfsteem issues could benefit from the cure, but no, let's demonize everyone who wants to take the cure because how dare them reject something that impacts their life negatively.

    It's like body positivity, going far beyond "It's okay if you don't look like a model as long as you're healthy and happy" and way into "If you don't chersh your morbid obesity that will result in early death then you're a bigot with internalized hatred!!!"

    Of course mutants like Storm and Iceman think like that, for them their mutation is not a problem, it's all about controlling climate or making ice sculptures while being in perfect control of their abilities and appearance, but what if one day Storm just started generating storms anywhere she goes without wanting to, or what if Iceman suddenly couldn't return to his human form after transforming and had to live in a freezer for the rest of his life? Something tells me they would then have a different perception of this issue.

    Their position is akin to telling you you should be okay with your malignant tumor just because they happen to be okay with their dimples, both are mutations but only one is a shit deal.

    Not gonna lie, the gag about The Wizard of Oz made me laugh.
    "What you would do in these situations."
    Give Mutants equal rights and create special divisions in both Law Enforcement and the Military for Mutant Enlistees with higher pay than the humans Cops and Soldiers?
    Offer a special analysis service of Mutant Powers for Volunteers and for those with particular power that benefits certain fields, potential set them up with special jobs in construction, labs, engineering, etc and make sure to emphasize it's on a Voluntary basis.
    Likewise, Create American Equivalent of French Foreign Legion for Mutants for Mutant Refugees and Immigrants, again on a Voluntary basis.
    Like I can think of several ways I'D do it, I would focus on the positives my Mutant Countrymen could benefit our country and themselves
    .....Isn't Juggernaut a Dude empowered by a War God, not a Mutant (Basically a Chosen of Khorne.)?
    "Haha! Now I'm gonna be arrested, thrown back in jail, and probably have my powers taken away- Why did I agree to this?"
    Even as a Kid the first time watching I wondered that exact thing.
    Another part that bothered me Critic doesn't bring up, that part where he sends in 'The Pawns' who then get gunned down en masse by the cure guns.......only for him to send in the mutant who can make a sonic boom and make them drop/lose their weapons.
    I went when I saw that "WHY DIDN'T YOU DO THAT FIRST!? Your pawns would be doing better if you did!"
    Zhuge Liang would be ashamed of these levels of tactics.
    Also what they did to Spyke from X-Men Evolution, like everything about him.
    And Yeah, Kelsey Grammar as Beast was perfection.

    I liked this movie as much as X2 and almost as much as X1.
    Cool battles include Wolverine vs juggernaut, storm vs the other brotherhood mutants at Jean's house, Magneto attacking the convoy, Wolverine attacking the brotherhood camp, the alcatraz battle.
    Like doug says, the cure conflict is good simple story with high stakes, as opposed to more convoluted and cartoonish doomsday plots in many of the more popular xmen movies.
    I didn't have any background with the comics and cartoons, so I didn't mind how this movie handled the Phoenix. I think adhering the source material story where the Phoenix came from an outer space being would have made the movie outlandish(even for xmen movies). It would have been a jarring shift from the first two movies set on earth. I didn't even like the time travel in DOFP.
    They definitely could've given the Phoenix more screen time, since the runtime wasn't even 2 hours. I was also disappointed with lack of payoff with the iceman vs Pyro subplot. It was built up over the whole trilogy. Then the whole battle is one shoots a freeze beam, the other shoots a fire beam, and the beams fight to overpower each other. Then Pyro almost wins, then iceman headbutts Pyro with an ice helmet and knocks him out. Lame. They could've made that fight a couple minutes longer. Have them move around, dodge shots, land a few shots each, then have Iceman win.
    With the short runtime, they also didn't need to kill cyclops offscreen. It didn't bother me that they killed professor x, cyclops, and jean. It was the last chapter of the trilogy and it gave the whole story some weight. But with storm and new leaders, xavier's school will go on. I also liked that Rouge took the cure. "This is who I am" would have been a total cliche. It is exactly what she wanted and its happy ending for her to not have be physically isolated.
    There were a lot of cheesy lines for
    sure though. That said, I forgave that in star wars prequels and matrix sequels in exchange for cool action scenes, more world building, some new good characters, and adding to the story.

She's the one person who probably should have her powers taken away. Her life would be miserable. It's not like Storm who can control the weather, Rogue freaking kills anyone she touches and cannot have any sort of human contact ever

    And, voila.
    And to clarify, this was before I realized shirtless Hugh Jackman was a trend across all of these movies.
