X-Men Review

I watched the X-Men 3 premier last nite at GSC Midvalley. Thanks to tailo for the tickets. The place was packed with people, I think there were 2 screenings of X-Men going on last nite. For those who have not watch take note to stay till the credits finish rolling out. I know it may take sometime, but I guess it’s worth it. Only 4 of us remained to watch it, everyone else emptied out the cinema damn fast.

In this movie, Magneto and his army were trying to destroy a hospital that invented a medicine to transform mutants back to normal people. And the X-Men of course were trying to stop him.

Warning: Spoilers ahead. You have been warned.

What I always look forward to when watching X-Men movies is the introduction of new characters. In this new movie, we see a lot of new faces (some from the comic, some created for this movie). In the movie posters for X-Men, the character ‘Angel’ can be seen clearly. You would have thought he would play an important role in the movie, but turns out otherwise. He just says a few line and flaps flies around the rest of the time. And the part when he was young and trying to cut off his wings…damn geli!!

Warning: More spoilers ahead, read at your own risk!!

I think the highly anticipated character (for some people) has to be Phoenix. (She sort of died last episode and was supposed to transform into Phoenix). She’s the most powerful mutant of all (Class 5). I was expecting loads of fire….but sadly only shown one same move throughout the movie, but damn powerful (and horny!). She did kill loads of people (Scott and Professor Xavier among them) and had to be killed in the end as well. (Scott’s no big loss is he? Hehe..).

Throughout the movie, a lot of mutants were jabbed with the medicine to turn them back into normal humans (some while fighting and some voluntarily). One of the victims was Magneto…shocking to think about him without his powers.

All in all, the movie was nice…just don’t expect it to be the same as the cartoon/comic and you will like it. I’m looking forward to the 4th movie, as it seems like there will be a fourth. As I said, stay till the credits have finish rolling!
