    Everyone let’s just remain calm and chill. Good old critic isn’t making reviews, he is creating content through which to entertain you, usually with comedy. There’s no reason to get upset because he got a few facts wrong... although I pray to God he has enough common sense not to use wiki.

    Really Singer, did you read that line...out loud? did you ever you read that line out loud? You could have. I mean, you clearly could have. You just stated...That This Powerfully Telekinetic/Telepathic mutant, whose idea to save her mutant friends from drowning in a raging waterfall inside a jet by stepping out of the jet, lifting the jet and building a psychic wall towards the waterfall, waiting for it to claim her life while her mutant friends are saved...was THE ONLY WAY to save them.

    What I find ESPECIALLY amusing about this film is how everyone focuses on the Jean/Logan/Scott triangle (basically the 'romance' between a sex object, a whore and a sock puppet) when there isn't a SINGLE woman in this movie who Logan didn't have 'a scene' with :P

    No offense Doug, but you really feel like you were reaching with this one. I had my complaints too (Heck my friends and me even has the same questions about the scenario at the end with the jet when this first came out). But for the most part it was pretty well written. Here though most of your complaints felt like too focused nitpicks.

    Wolverine did date Mystique in WW2, later on she would date Sabretooth before settling down with Magneto.
    I know this because I have a copy of that particular run. It was a Sabretooth 4 issue miniseries from way back in 1993.
    I think she also had a thing with Mister Sinister but I'm not sure if it was mutual.

      Basically to also be able to hold off the water. She is neither super powerful nor super fast in the movie. She is also shown to direct her powers with her hands and in general needing to at least see the target for some time. It may not be totally like in the comics where she developed way past this level, but she was also not that powerful in the early comics as well.

    the thing about nightcrawler teleporting out of the plane is that it was in the air, there was no chance that he could teleport into somthing dangerous, he teleported roughly where he thought she was and caught her, i do admit him teleporting back inside the plane is a stretch, but you could blame that on stress, people can do crazy things when they are under a lot of stress, in the facility, nightcrawler wasnt under any real stress, at least not in the same way as before, so he didnt think he could teleport into a room where he could easely accidently telleport into somthing.

    When Rogue was fumbling with the seat belt on the jet, isn't she just having trouble because of her gloves (trying to use a cloth surface to grip smooth metal)? That's the impression that I got, and it makes MUCH more sense than "the seat belt on our super high-tech jet is broken".

  • Reyquiem
    Reyquiem 3 dias atrás +3

    I will say that I have four issues with this review.
    One: It was pretty obvious from the start that Pyro was going to join Magneto. I don't think you should be claiming it was a surprise, unless you weren't paying attention.
    Two: The opening fight scene and, yes, the airplane scene you keep referring to both imply, at least to me, ahead of time that Nightcrawler doesn't actually *need* to see where he's going to teleport there, because at least once in both scenes (though it's hard to tell in the fight scene, so I may be mistaken) he isn't looking at where he ends up. The exact wording of his explanation suggest this too. All he actually needs is a general idea of the direction and distance to the target point. He's just afraid (perhaps justifiably so) of ending up inside a solid object. When mind-controlled and when operating on reflex, i.e. when he isn't thinking about it, he pulls it off with no trouble. But this is mostly just my own theory; I don't know if anything else corroborates it.
    Three: Xavier can't lift planes. His power is purely telepathic in nature. You really should know that.
    Four: Not even a single mention of the many gratuitous boob shots of Mystique? I like boobs as much as anyone, but even I have to admit they went overboard. I mean, just look at 16:39 for ONE entirely unsubtle example. And not even a single joke about it? I'm disappointed.
    But everything else, I'm with you on. I wouldn't call this the best X-Men movie at all - if Logan counts, I'd definitely pick that, otherwise I'd say probably Days of Future Past. Probably.

Iceman uses his power to create a wall for Wolvie and Stryker to look at each other lovingly through instead of , I don't know, freezing the damn guards that were standing there?!?
