I recently purchased X-Men 3:TLS and opened it eagerly. It starts out well, providing some background to key X-Men like Jean Grey and Warren Worthington III (aka Angel), and an old alliance with Magneto. However, as the action built-up, so did my disappointment. The farther the movie progressed, the farther the movie strayed from the franchise.
My most major disappointments include killing off major titular characters. You just don't do that to a comic book franchise because majority of the movie's audience will be comic readers who have their own personal favorites. There are repercussions on killing personal heroes especially that for which the movie is named! The X-Men is not a tragedy. It is a celebration of being different. My personal favorite is the Phoenix, but although I know that such a character can never ever be given extended existence, one like Charles Xavier should be timeless. Another is Scott Summers. You do not kill off Cyclops after killing Jean Grey (in the previous film). It's simply not right. I could think of a million other ways the film could run parallel to the comic book lines, on how Scott could have dealt with grief and actually move on.
On the issues of the Phoenix, I can probably write a book. Jean Grey's resurrection at Alkali Lake, is acceptable. What follows in the immediate scenes with Cyclops are not. Although the the movie's depiction of the Phoenix as a particularly insidious succubus is not distasteful, Ratner fails at capturing the essence of one of the world's most popular X-Men characters. The Phoenix is an entity and not a subconscious. Even the effects are bland. The Phoenix is called that because of the stylized fiery bird that engulfs Jean Grey when she is in that persona.Read more ›
When a cure is developed to rid mutants of their unusual abilities, the mutant community is torn in two, with some more than happy to get rid of what they view as a curse, while others are vehemently against it. Outraged at this development, Magneto makes war on the humans for trying to rid the world of mutantkind and the X-Men stand in the gap to stop him.
This movie has a lot going on and seems to serve as an ending to the previous two movies, bringing to fruition a major confrontation between the X-Men and the Brotherhood. These two teams, while having skirmished in the other movies, never had an all-out battle and this flick shows that. It also brings to pass a version of the Dark Phoenix storyline with Jean Grey returning from the dead as the Phoenix and working for the bad guys.
From an action standpoint, this movie has tons of it and it’s really cool. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) kicks butt as usual, while having the Juggernaut (Vinnie Jones) running around and smashing into things makes you cheer. Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen) ups the metal-controlling ante in this—I mean, lifting a bridge? Flipping semis? Awesome!—and even having Beast (Kelsey Grammer) beasting it up adds a level of excitement that makes this comic-book-come-to-life a thrill. And when Jean Grey lets loose and destroys her childhood home while a bunch of X-Men and Brotherhood folks are fighting inside it? That was some jaw-dropping stuff!
From a story standpoint, it kind of falters. In a general sense—the overall story, I mean—it’s fine as is. That is, the “what it’s about.” The delivery, however, seems to suffer from the same thing Spider-Man 3 did: too much going on and not enough time to tell it in.Read more ›
I bought this version because it seems that all Widescreen DVD edition of 'X-Men 3: The Last Stand' over here have only the 13 deleted scenes / alternate endings rather than the 24 which some (- very rare (??) -) DVD editions have been known to have.
(Why have only 13 bonuses when you can get 24 bonuses, right?)
I thought the Collector's Edition would be the fancy version.
It is actually the same Widescreen version, with the same crappy, inferior selection of bonuses, only packaged with a never-before-released comic book (by Stan Lee, which is a nice addition, but I guess I don't appreciate it as much as other fans might).
Same case, same disc, same factory-produced imprint on the disc inside. No different disc look whatsoever!
And, of course, the old Widescreen DVD plus the comic book are packaged together into a rather-nice-looking plastic exterior cover (with top and bottom openings). Which is what you are seeing in the main pic here.
So don't expect major differences, like between 'X-Men' and 'X-Men 1.5'!
And certainly don't expect the 24 deleted scenes if the Widescreen release from the same zone has 13 deleted scenes. They're the same discs, so they'll have the same bonuses.
I ended up going to watch "X-Men - The Last Stand" this morning, because my sister wanted to see it. I had a very welcomed surprise. This movie is probably the best in the series, at least so far. Of course, you shouldn't expect too much: this is a movie designed merely for entertainment purposes, and it is quite far from being a classic or anything similar to that. That having been said, it engages the audience easily, and it entertains.
This movie doesn't pretend to be more than what it is: a blockbuster with lots of action and not too much character development. However, that is all right in my book, at least in some of the films I watch. Yes, "X-Men - The Last Stand" could have been better, but it is nonetheless a film you will probably like, specially if you are already a fan of the series.
The inspiration for the plot is taken from the "X-men" comics, even though the story has been substantially modified. In a nutshell, a cure to treat mutations has been found, and mutants react differently to that discovery. The Brotherhood, a group of mutants whose leader is Magneto (Ian McKellen), plans to destroy the cure. The X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), think that every mutant should be able to choose without pressures whether to remain one or not. In Prof. Charles Xavier's words "Since the dawn of existence, there have always been moments when the course of history shifted. Such a turning point is upon us now" (...) "I do not know if victory is possible. I only know that great sacrifice will be required.Read more ›
