I didn't think Storm in the Danger Room was too bad. Jean Grey looked a bit stiff though and the group of mutants leaping on the island looked a bit phoney, partly because they did it so slowly. It should have been a moment of 'bullet-time' slowness to show them airborne then speeded up to normal for impact landings.

Wirework hasn't always been the best in the X-Men movies, although McKellen managed to make it look elegant and effortless most of the time. I thought the flight scenes in First Class were excellent, though Magneto's descent from the submarine also looked a little stiff. Vertical levitations/descents are the trickiest, it seems.
