Default Re: X-Men 3...seriously fans/people--WHY all the hate?

Okay, so how exactly is major characters dying a bad thing per se? Didn't Hamlet die at the end? Was that bad?

And then again, Wolverine of all was the one who had a biggest development, passing from the classic individualist to the leader. How is development forced is a mistery to me. Plus it was him and Storm who became more the spiritual leader as Logan became the battle leader.

So, all Magneto did was organizing all the mutants that were against the cure and give the hell of an attack against that facility. Not to mention to keep the uncontrolable Phoenix workinmg for him.

And yes, the bridge thing, and how he rescued Juggernaut and Mistique wasn't bad either.

I cannot grasp this Magneto's 'lack of threat' or how 'little' did he do.

How so? It addressed much more important issues than X2 and had far better action and character development - which X2 had little of.
