    "The heavily expository dialogue aside, "Last Stand" is "Fantastic Four" done right, taking the super-powers seriously and making the Marvel Comics panels come to life. This is where the avalanche of seamless special effects really works, making the battles possible and indulging in requisite homage to the source material. More ambitious, though not as sophisticated as "X2," "X-Men: The Last Stand" is an unexpectedly muscular curtain call for the movie franchise that made superheroes super on screen again."

    Hi guys, just found this, happy reading! GO X-men!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is it just me , or does everyone think this movie is good? Some love it , some think its just good. I've read MORE Positive reviews then negative so far


    On X2's level and much better then X1.

    im loving all these positive reviews. Most compare it to X2, and most say its different, because its got more action and less thinking, but that its not bad at all, some say its on top with X2. Though none have said its better than X2, having it compared and even on top with the second is really reassuring. And i love it.

    In my mind I still don't think any comic book will ever top X2. Just knowing all this buzz, negative and positive, means that people care. I for one can't wait till the 25th at 11:59 p.m. Anybody going to the mountain view, CA opening??????

    X2 is one of the most well done scifi films ive ever seen, and youre right.. everyone positive or negative cares about this sagas fate.

    I got an 11:59 at Oakridge Mall in San Jose.

    Cool to notice some other Bay Area people around here though, recently. I thought I was alone.

    It's not just you - except for a couple of dodgy ones at the start most reviews have been more positive than negative. I still wait for the magical Rotten Tomatoes Holy Grail.

    2 fresh reviews, but if you read the reviews, the film is about a 3/5.

    They've been very good so far--raves about the story, the action sequences, and the performances. I hope it continues when the more mainstream reviews hit next week. :up:

    Question is how many of these Reviewers are Comic Book Fans & know how much they actually changed from the Main Story one big part of this Movie is based on. Good to know it seems the General Non Comic Book Geeks will like this Movie though.

    most of the reviews seem to be coming from people who only know of the movies. this guy name drops appropriately (lee, claremont, morrison, and whedon), but he did call xavier "Dr." so it's hard to say.

    Alone is being one of the few people who graduated from George Mason University, and trying to find a pocket of alumni in SF to watch this past Final 4.
