No mention of Angel? Sounds like the reviewer was weighing his words carefully considering the time frame we're in pre-release. He may update this review afterwards with more details. So far though it sounds positive.

7 out of 10 is above average AKA 3 out of 4 stars. Now, if it were 6 or below I'd be worried.

Convenient that he didn't want to spoil anything! He could've used specific examples, not necessarily spoiler filled ones, of scenes from the movie to back up his opinions. It just seems a bit too superficial and vague for me that's all.

Again, everyone make their own judgements. Don't let the review get you down.

Everyone has different tastes.

Sometimes reviewers are restricted as to what they can say.

Overall though, this movie sounds just...underwhelming.

I think it's fake and that a no name like this site would have a review before more legitimate media is also suspicious. The review could have been written based on the clips and internet news already known.

And I think its VERY possible that there are different versions out there. I think Scott will live and this review implies that he doesn't.

And I think the deaths will be Xavier, Magneto, Jean, and Mystique. Cyclops really should be around to lead the next generation of X-Men.

I think any reviewer would get into detail for at least one of the fx or make up, having a lot of challenges in that area in this movie (Angel's wings, Beast make up, young Xavier/Magneto, the Bridge scene). The fact that he mentions none of those makes me think it could be fake.

From the same reviewer, on "V for Vendetta":

Quote:
Like this movie would be too inflammatory, and too challenging to have it have been set in the country it was meant to lampoon. (huh huh he said poon). Can I also say I loved the way this flick stuck it to that complete and utter douchebag Bill O'reilly. That guy is like an infected zit on the sphincter of humanity, and I love to see him get his.
A real Roger Ebert, then? I'm not sure why this review should change people's opinions; I've never heard of this site before now. Critics are not objective; they have personal tastes about what makes a film decent or not.

For example - in the reviewer's opinion, Storm has "no personality". Isn't this one of the issues that was brought up when Halle was considering coming back? Didn't she agree to return because that problem was fixed in this script? He might not think she has a personality, but that's his opinion. I'm more interested in what more well-respected critics have to say - people who, at the least, I can judge in terms of their taste compared to my own.

"Downhere" posted this in the 2-hr thread - this person who apparently saw it at a screening in Chicago (I think that's what he said) thought it was "awesome." TONS OF SPOILERS.

>>Here's another link with someone who "supposedly" have already seen it...

I thought "reviewer" screening began yesterday with "advanced"(for average joe) screening starting the 22nd I think.

People, some critics don't get into the details of the films that much. Some just say whether they liked it or not without getting into specifics. Some are very general like this one.

And there are others that do go into depth....

I won't be impressed until they screen this for Roger Ebert.

Doesn't sound all that great. Rushed along? Jean doing 'something' to somebody? A lot of deaths? Effects look unconvincing? I hope this guy isn't right...

Yes, this is a distinct possibility. I was at a private screening for the Jamie Foxx film Ray several weeks before it's premiere. It was a "tester" to guage audience reaction. Aftewards, we filled out a survey on what we thought of the film. When I saw the film again in theatres, there were a couple of scenes that were missing, and the entire movie was spruced up to be a bit more fluid.

This is pretty standard business folks. FOX is getting a pulse for the film, and the feedback they receive from exit polling will tell them how to proceed with whatever is planned for May 26th's release.

"Effects look unconvincing."

OK, class. Hold your hand up if the effects you've seen in the trailers have been unconvincing.

I don't know about this review... I'm not saying it's fake, but I'll wait for further reviews.

This line seems a bit forward:

The movies actually has a lot of death’s in it, and so with certain characters out of the way, Storm and Wolverine take control of the team.
