Opposing views of mutuant leaders Charles Xavier, who preaches tolerance and Eric Lehnsherr, who believes in the survival of the fittest, are put to the ultimate test - triggering the war to end all wars. Margaret: The theoretical last of the X Men trilogy has a possible answer to everyones problems, a cure for the mutant X gene which has produced individuals with singular physical and telekinetic powers. But is being one of the mutants a disease to be cured? Opinions are divided. After dying in X Men II Jean Grey, (FAMKE JANSSEN) returns miraculously to life with all her powers, a fact that causes concern to Xavier, (PATRICK STEWART). But Wolverine, (HUGH JACKMAN) who loves her, believes in her ability to control herself. Meanwhile Magneto, (IAN McKELLEN) is gathering forces to fight the supposed cure and he wants Jean as part of his team. This Marvel comic based series has spectacular special effects but they seem a bit soulless. Its not enough to be dazzled by the pyrotechnics of contemporary technology, you need a bit of heart. And somehow this film doesnt seem to have as much as the previous one in the series. This is B-grade popcorn entertainment, so you dont expect miracles, but a bit more concern with the dare-I-say it? Human values of the mutants who are an ethical breed for the most part, would have enhanced the film enormously.
