Product Description

Special Features

Ten minutes of X-Men deleted scenes (most of them superfluous) are viewable separately or integrated into the complete film, with an onscreen symbol to mark when a deleted scene has been inserted. "The Mutant Watch" is a 23-minute promotional featurette originally broadcast on Fox TV at the time of the film's release, and combines interview clips with a "mockumentary" news profile of Senator Kelly (Bruce Davison) and his campaign to promote "mutant registration." Excerpts from Charlie Rose's interview with director Bryan Singer are worthwhile but too brief: the entire interview should have been included. Hugh Jackman's screen test (with costar Anna Paquin) provides an interesting glimpse of the casting process. The DVD's features are rounded out by a standard variety of production and costume sketches, two computer-generated "animatics" showing the preparation of action sequences, plus TV spots and theatrical trailers. --Jeff Shannon

The first X-Men film is not really perfect, but in terms of it's timing and what it meant might be coming down the pike with regards to cinematic interpretations of comic books (specifically Marvel comics) it is pretty darn close to perfect. Lets face it, this is the harbinger of the comic book movie age that has, like it or not, made some exciting and high-grossing films. I personally think the majority of comic book movies fail and could care less about how much money they make, but X-Men is a bit more than that. It's a very good movie too.

I didn't get a chance to see this in theaters but that actually served the film well in terms of how I viewed the hype. I didn't care because so many did...that's the old punk in me in guess. So I waited and received the film as an early Christmas gift the following year. I actually watched it Christmas eve and found it to be incredibly refreshing and enjoyable.

It begins by showing us a young boy being separated from his parents at a German concentration camp in Poland. His parents are going into the camp and will be killed. The boy is desperate to save them and as the German soldiers hold him down he reaches out and somehow begins to bend the metal gates that close in his parents before being struck down by the [...] of one of the soldiers' guns. The boy is Eric Lehnsherr, one of the great all-time Marvel comic villains known as Magneto. In one fell swoop, Bryan Singer does something that I've always been glad X-Men writers did consistently, and that is allow us to sympathize with this villain.

We are then introduced to the primary plot of a modern day Senator bent on the granting the government the ability to force registration of all mutants.

This movie is decent, but hardly measures up to the great superhero movies Batamn and Batman Returns, or even either of the Spiderman movies.
Givent the scope of the x-men universe, I understand that the movie can only include a certain number of characters and that the storylines have to be changed considerably. I was disappointed, however, that Rogue was shown as a teenager, before she gains Miss Marvel's powers. Rogue is a character that works better as an adult than a teen. Rogue seems to be a cross between herself and characters such a Jubilee (regarding her relationship with Wolverine). Her teenagerness also doesn't allow for Gambit to appear, with their uncomfortable relationship. Anna Paquin, however, is a wonderful actress, and Hugh Jackman is superb as Wolverine. Professor X and Magneto were also excellently cast, although I wish Magneto was a bit buffer.
Halle Berry is a terrible Storm. She lacks a certain dignity intrinsic to the character.
The special effects, action sequences, and makeup are all pretty cool.
The main weakness of the movie is really its cheesy script. Perhaps if Joss Whedon's rewrite had been kept, it would have been better.

First off, I'm not going to say anything about the quality of the video or anything, because I'm not concerned with things like that.
I got X-Men and X-Men2, along with another movie, at a Used Sale, all for about $10. I had never seen any of these movies, and, as a fan of the recent animated series, X-Men Evolution, I decided to give the movies a try.
And maybe my expectations were too high, but I thought that they were both horrific movies. The acting was okay. Hugh Jackman was an excellent choice for Wolverine, and he did a nice job. Ian McKellen also did very well as Magneto, I think. The rest of the acting was mediocre to upsetting.
Not only that, the characters barely had any personality. All the viewer knows about Jean Grey is that she's smart and pretty and nice. Scott Summers (Cyclopes) loves Jean. (That's really the only emotion that he is allowed to show.) Rogue is a little girl frightened of her powers. Logan (Wolverine) is a tough cookie. Everything the movie tells us about them is just simple, stereotypical, on-the-surface facts. The characters have no individual personality. They all seem to have the same sense of humor, say the same things... blah blah blah. So the script was terrible.
The one thing I can give you is that the story was great, but credit to that goes to the comic. So. I'll have to take that compliment back. There was absolutely nothing good about this movie.
Well... the computer graphics were pretty good.

World`s favorite mutants get their first movie and the result is convincing enough to deserve a watch. Bryan Singer, a repectable and innovative director ("The Usual Suspects", "Apt Pupil") shows enough respect and knowledge about the franchise and creates an entertaining and meaningful action movie, wich steps above many run-of-the-mill empty blockbusters with repeated ideas. The director expertly showcases the X-Universe, setting the mood and tone for the sequels to come.
Although this is sci-fi material, in a way it`s depicted in a realistic, believable manner, as the characters and their envoironment seem credible and not too fantasy-like creations. Singer developed a serious tone for this universe, avoiding the childish and irritating tendencies of the latter Batman movies. The plot focuses mainly on Wolverine and Rogue, so unfortunately the rest of the characters aren`t too developed, but given that this is the first movie of a series it works well enough.
"X-Men" is intelligent, creative sci-fi, a solid movie with good direction, competent special effect (used just when necessary, avoiding useless explosions and fights), an efficient plot and a talented cast. Not a masterpiece, just a good comic-book adaptation (in fact, it`s probably one of the best).
The ending result should please fans and non-fans alike, altough it would be surpassed by its sequel, "X2", a better and more sucessful movie. Worthwile entertainment (and though-provoking, too).
