I was watching the trailer today, while seeing MI:3, and I must admit...I was blown away as I watched Magneto lead his army up against the X-men. It looked fantastic. When Wolverine was telling Iceman about war, and the chance of them not coming back, I felt blown away by the sense of urgency. Lately a lot of people have been complaining that the movie is too short to develop characters and the plot will be lacking with all of the action sequences...and I am going to say.......So what? We have had two movies that took character development to the extreme. We never got to see a full out mutant war. We got to see Wolverine kicking someone's ass. I am beginning to look at X3 as the climax to a one part story. X1 and X2 built up the characters well enough, that I do not need character development in X3 to care about them. I already do become of its predecessors. This is the final chapter of a three part story...and it is going to be the climax. There will be action...there will be death...there will be less plot...but basic story telling usually does have the third act focus less on plot and more on the payoff. That is exactly what X3 will give us...a payoff from what was developed in the first two. I personally can't wait.
