Re: X-Men 3...seriously fans/people--WHY all the hate?
Major characters dying is fine, if done properly. But here it felt rushed, and at times they didn't seem to care. Cyclops apparently dies off screen. No characters really seemed to care, beyond "oh, Scott's dead". It didn't affect anyone. Xavier's death was abrupt, but at least there was a little mourning. Hell, it's hard to get invested in any of these characters. Remember Colossus? Did he even have dialogue in this movie? Most of the X-Men never even spoke to each other. They killed off Cyclops just so Wolverine could be leader. That I found forced.
In the first movie, Magneto was a sophisticated, mysterious figure, they built him up to be a menacing threat. A guy with big plans. In the third movie, he just wanders around with a poorly organized gang of mutant delinquents. In the first movie he had a very ambitious scheme that threatened the entire world. Here he and some hoods flash mob Alcatraz… That's the entirety of his plan. Surprised they didn't say genius Pyro was the one who came up with that master plan.
