100-Word Review: "X-Men 3: The Last Stand"
X-Men 3: The Last Stand
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Famke Janssen
Directed by: Brett Ratner
Written by Simon Kinberg and Zak Penn
Released by: Fox
Theatrical Release Date: 05/26/2006
Run Time: 107 min.
Much better than the train wreck I was expecting. Not in the league of X-Men and X2, but still a worthy film on its own. Think Terminator 3.
Too short. Too many mutants, not enough time. Can we get a little more Kitty and Colossus, please? What happened to Scott?
The action was much better than in the previous two films; Singer's action scenes were always a bit lackluster.
Thanks to Joss Whedon for the Cure.
Phoenix: unbelievably scary.
"The Juggernaut, b####!"
X-Men 4 by 2009? Please say yes. And say it's 2 hours and 15 minutes long.
