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

3.0 out of 5 stars "Well, it certainly is a big, round room." Feb. 3 2005
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly disappointed. May 18 2004
By rumi
Format:VHS Tape
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Beginning Feb. 2 2004
Format:VHS Tape
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best adaptations of a comic book ever Nov. 11 2003
Format:DVD
X-Men was a great movie in my mind. It may not have followed the comic completely, but people have to realize that is going to happen when you have hundreds of individual X-Men titles and only a two hour movie. I do not care that Angel and Beast where not in the movie, or that Iceman was just a kid. The only characters I missed were Gambit and Psylocke. Wolverine is the most popular X-Men character, which makes sense why the film (and the second one) revolves around him, but I think they did a great job in making all of the other characters individuals as well, and not just there. And for all the people who disagreed with Ian McKellan as Magneto I just have to say that I too did not think it was a good casting choice to begin with, but I quickly changed my mind upon seeing the movie. McKellan is a superb Magneto. For those who complained that he was too old, do not forget that Magneto was a teenager during World War II back in the early 1940s. He WOULD be in his late 60s early 70s at this point (McKellan himself is 64 and was born in 1939, the year the war BEGAN). Do not be led astray by Magneto's youthful appearance in the comics. He is an old man.
In close I just have to say that the best is yet to come in the X-Men world. As cool as I think Magneto is, I believe the better X-Men villains, Mr. Sinister and Apocalypse, will make for an even better movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks like a pilot for a series.
This is interesting, as I never read the X-Men. So I did not have any preconception or know if any of the charters are important or known.
The story is clear. Read more
