Movie Summary

Director:
Brett Ratner
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13

Picking up where the second one ends, mutants are still feared, Cyclops is devastated by Jean Grey's death and goes back to investigate the site where she disappeared, but, when Storm and Wolverine follow, they discover her unconscious body. She is different now, she's even more powerful but refers to herself as "the Phoenix" and is distant and mentally disrupted. Meanwhile a scientific cure is released to the world made from the blood of a mutant boy that can cancel out the mutant gene. Magneto wishes to kill the boy and prevent any mutant to go so low as to become human again. With Jean Grey unstable, both sides of mutants fight to control her unbridled power for the fate of man kind. Mutants will die, people will suffer, the X-Men will fight for our protection.

    I'm not a huge fan of Hugh Jackman, but Hugh Jackman as Wolverine - Woof!! Anyway, he's a terrific actor and plays across the spectrum in this film, oozing emotion and playing the tough guy with the heart of gold to perfection.



    I like the story, too, as it ties everything together nicely, but leaves us with the feeling that it's not quite finished. All the actors play good parts and it's a movie I can watch over and over again.moreless
