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

Well, Phoenix had her scenes but yes, after the house fight scene it was relegated to a second position which happens a lot in this kind of overpopulated movies.

I never realized that.

What were the 'subtle substance' in X2, if I may ask? I remember lots of action in that movie. The whole White House scene at the beginning was all for showing off how many cool special effects can you out in one scene.

In fact X2 forgot everything about mutants being social outcasts and it was another regular story of good guys vs bad guys. At least X-Men TLS came back to the original premise of the story.
