He still has hope for Erik, that is what makes Xavier who he is.

Me too, it's my only criticism about the script. It's just "yeah umm, JFK was a mutant right"

I think JFK revelation blew Charles' mind so much he had to re-asses his view of Erik and needed some down time.

I give it a solid 9.

This is an instant favorite of mine.

I love the action set pieces, the gripping drama, and most of all the message.

The message is what elevates the film to classic status for me. That along with the swiss clock execution. Evetything unfolds beautifully.

I think it's silly that the poll results are ruined when a thread gets continued to another page.

Is there a way to fix it?

I had a problem with that as well. It felt like a clumsy attempt to shoehorn the Vietnam War in more than anything else.

I'm generally down on this movie a lot on these boards, but I have to say, considering the premise it turned out to be very watchable and entertaining. I'm just frustrated that after the promise of the first half it just kinda fizzles out for me and none of the character drama hits as hard as it should.

They'd probably get out the same way they got in. Unnoticed.

It's 1973. The whole idea of everyone thinking about DNA won't come around for another thirty years with CSI.

That makes since. Charles is pacifist. He's not teaching X-men to be soldiers and fight yet. Just to control their powers. It would probably break his heart to see his students leave to go fight a war and using their powers in such a way.

Now he has nothing. He can't walk, no Mystique, and the founding belief of school is being abandoned.

Agreed. The concept was solid. Going back in time to first convince people and then make a difference is great. I liked how it was a large scale film with an intimate focus - Charles and Raven prodeminantly with Erik in the mix as well. Plus I liked the Sentinels, how they made even the most powerful mutant afraid and effectively nullified. A serious threat that could not be stopped, but delayed briefly.

I don't get the complaints about Charles' suppressed powers giving him the ability to walk.

I think the subtext was that he used drugs to feel normal but in doing so he gave up his unique gifts.

Probably the strongest criticism of drug use I've ever seen in a comic book movie.

This is how I saw it, too. Absolutely. It was the trade-off. Have the needle and suppress your greatness - but walk. Or don't have the needle, be crippled but be who you really are.

3. It does not matter if it sorta came from FC. what matters is its purpose. Its a lame device the writers needed to undo what they had done.

I was listening to a podcast and I'm wondering if they took notice in the film or previous films (they'd done a retrospective of the whole series), two of the things they had a dig at:

- Future Xavier been back in his own body, X3 explained this with some exposition earlier in that film and the post credits scene
- Future Xavier said he wouldn't have his powers in 1973, this was explained in this movie because he obviously remembered at that time he was suppressing his powers with the serum

Really annoys me when people pick at stuff and its like if you paid attention you'd see the answers are there

Overall, I thought this movie was fantastic. The finale was one of the most tense I've seen in a comic book film. The finale was getting so bleak and brutal that for a minute there, I was honestly starting to believe that we weren't going to get a happy ending. It's pretty rare when comic book movies can do that nowadays!

There were two things that really bothered me in this movie (hint: they involve Emma Frost and Rogue), and there were some plot conveniences (such as Kitty's powers), but the good easily outweighs the bad. The acting in this film is something to behold, because the actors brought in their A-games. James McAvoy was the standout actor in this; I believe this is his movie. And Michael Fassbender has dethroned Ian McKellen as the definitive Magneto, as far as I'm concerned (I've been saying this since First Class, actually, but this movie further solidifies my opinion).

Also, that Quicksilver scene is probably the single coolest thing I've seen in any of the X-Men movies. He was hilarious and fun to watch. I didn't think I was going to say this, but Joss Whedon has something to worry about for Age of Ultron, because X-Men's Quicksilver was awesome.

This is my favorite X-Men movie to date, with First Class coming in a close second. Twentieth Century Fox deserves some kudos, because I'm excited for the X-Men movies again! As far as 2014 comic book movies are concerned, though, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is still my favorite for now.

I think I really have only one major nitpick. You can't even ****ing drown Wolverine now. The one sure way to kill him, and even that doesn't work anymore.

I have a feeling that he would've died if not fished out so quickly. Don't know why.

That was anything but quickly. He was probably there for half an hour or longer, before Mystique arrived to fish him out of the water.

I know. I meant "as quickly as it happened", not quickly in general. I just imagine his healing factor would've slowed down enough allowing him to die if he'd been there longer.

I wonder if he drowned several times or just that one time? Imagine coming back to life just to drown again.

Wolverine can't be killed even without his healing factor (in The Wolverine), despite being shot, beaten, falling from heights and performing open heart surgery on himself...

The thing about Logan in these movies is, sure he survives constant horrible injuries - but he is the only character who gets horrible injuries. No one else gets stabbed, shot etc but Logan.

...and that's what I appreciate. All kinds of maiming, mutilation, burning and the works. Yes, I am an idiot and I like to see some gruesome violence in my movies. Especially against a character who can take tons of it, and it always hurts. It's like a wonderful circle of violence that never ends.

In my dreams, all X-movies are R-rated. Please do not alert the police or mental health institutions.

Mystique has been both shot and stabbed in these movies.

He still had his healing factor in TW, it was just severely weakened. That's why he can still survive all of the injuries, but can't just shrug them off like he could before (he passes out due to blood loss at one point).

Yeah, Wolverine stabbed her in X1. And this made her want to have sex with him, somehow? And she was shot with the cure darts in X3.

Mystique isn't a wallflower. She considers extreme physical damages attractive. I bet she couldn't stop thinking about Mags after that bullet wound.

Oh yeah if ever there was a woman who enjoyed men who treated her badly its Mystique, she loves the crap out of that. Xavier's fault really.
