This week's reviewed movie is:
X-Men: The Last Stand




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



X-Men: The Last Stand is a fast-paced 3-quel with impressive action scenes and strong performances.

In addition, the film includes plenty of references to both classic and recent storylines that will delight fans of the comics.

I think it continues to make this one of the most grown-up comic book movie series ever made.

Oh, and whatever you do, don't leave before the credits have finished.

I think you'll be very pleased.

X-Men is typical summer fare--a mindless, entertaining popcorn muncher with no deep meaning, hidden agenda, or social commentary (well maybe a little).

It's well directed with outstanding special effects (the Golden Gate Bridge scene is marvelous).

It's a movie that stands on its own, whether you've seen the others or not and works--despite Wolverine's constant one-liners.

I liked the almost non-stop action in this comic book sequel.

I also liked the political & social issues that were injected in the story that are currently being talked about in today's news, such as gun control, stem cell research and abortion, to mention a few.

There's a lot of variety in this film, with 16 super heroes to entertain you with their specialty mutant powers.
