Melbourne, Australia.

Yeah it would be a great shame if James' performance didn't make it into some countries' cinemas

I feel rather iffy about the "magic cure" as well, for the reasons you and Loganbabe mentioned. But to be fair, we're talking about an action summer blockbuster, not an inspirational character piece about dealing with paralysis, and Charles just could never keep up with the action and the rest of the characters if he's in a wheelchair all the time. I just hope that if he does walk at some point in the movie it's dealt with intelligently and not as some stupid fix-everything just to make a character active again.
