Reviews will be mixed. There is no possibility of a complete positive reception. Not even masterpieces of filmmaking have that.

So: relax and let them talk.

The movie is well worth all its best comic book origins and was done with both courage and great ability by Vaugh and his more than talented cast.

We all know the value of that.

I hope now that:

1) Vaughn is locked in for a sequel

2) Singer stays on board for story input, producer duties

3) The next film has a less nightmarish production schedule. Allow more time so we get perfection in acting/accents/FX. (It would also allow January Jones to hone her body and look a bit stronger/curvier)

4) we get better posters next time!

Agreed. If there's anything I hope Fox doesn't take away from this is that the studio can fast track a movie and come up with a good product in less than a year. Also, I've given up on #4. Haha.

Yeah, I count it as rotten in my book. He called Charles a "mind-reader" and that was it. And why would you cut one of the main actors out of the group picture?

Dropped to 92% now...
I really hope it can fix between 90 to 98.

That Salon review just really irritates me. But still happy with the overall consensus.

There are bound to be a few negative reviews, but here's hoping it gets a flood of good reviews to bring it back up to the mid-upper 90's.

Even when I agree with their conclusions, I dont think I've ever read a Salon review that I liked.

That Salon review was just too pretentious for its own good. It was almost like a diatribe on how pop culture will destroy us all. Mostly the guy just went on and on about how distressing it was having to seat in dark for two hours to watch such a dumb movie when he could have been reading "Ulisses" or something.

I loved the commentary in which the reader says "Well, it's your job to sit in the dark and watch movies and you talk as if you have to break stones under the sun for two hours for a living, douche" Haha, perfect comment is perfect!

So 92% and a 7.5/10 average. Eh, can't say this suprised me. People expecting any superhero film to stay in the 95-100% range were just whistling dixie. No live action SH film has ever finished there. Only The Incredibles is in that range and it's animated.

I'm still impressed with percentage still being that high. I know several look at the number out of ten, but still, I'm impressed.

I have to agree, the Salon.com review is absolutely pointless and really frustrating because it needlessly brings down the RT score. All the other rotten ones actually review the movie and say what they did and didn't like.

It essentially says that the movie is good but then gives it a rotten because he thinks the subject matter is stupid and below him. What a pretentious jerk!

Peter Travers loved it

Didn't realize he was switching over to video blogs but it is a very good review if you can stand his craziness at the end of the video.

Even if this drops down to the 80s I will not be crying myself to sleep. I'm very pleased with these results.

Ebert gave it 2 1/2 stars. The same he gave the first X-Men I think. Then again, he gave X-Men: The Last Stand 3 Stars. So...I don't care.

2.5/4 should probably still count as a fresh review. We'll see.
