"What would you prefer, yellow spandex?"
Made my brother watch this. He was pretty into it. I loved sharing the experience with him, especially Mystique as it took a while for him to get his head round and he kept saying everyone was Mystique!
Watched this for WHM. Such a bore. It starts off okay before turning into every other shitty CGI fest subpar superhero movie out there. Kind of worth it to see Frasier as a superhero and to laugh at Hugh Jackman wig. Some scenes it looks like someone bumped it up from the back but no one told him. I hope it's a wig, I mean if that's a real do then the stylist should get the axe. I laughed out loud a few times. Side note, I couldn't stop trying to figure out if miles was in lost when this came out or if this got him lost. Also sopranos, that was his big break right? See, can't help but not think about this movie.
Whilst short of some of the more explosive set pieces we are used to from recent superhero films (not you terrible 2015 Fantastic Four), this is still a triumphant beginning to the X-universe and is perhaps the film responsible for the continuing success of the genre (not you 2005 Fantastic Four).
A respectable treatment of the comic and a welcome antidote to the Batman movies of the previous decade (dark and wonderful; bright and awful).
