Two mutants, Rogue and Wolverine, come to a private academy for their kind whose resident superhero team, the X-Men, must oppose a terrorist organization with similar powers.

με τα σημερινά στάνταρντς είναι σα να βλέπεις indie ταινία. έχει άγνοια κινδύνου το φιλμ και είναι απολαυστικό να το βλέπεις αυτό σήμερα. έχει σκηνές μάχης χορογραφημένες, με ηθοποιούς σε δερμάτινα να ανεβοκατεβαίνουν στον αέρα και να τους κρατάνε σκοινιά, ξέρεις. έχει 20 λεπτά στην αρχή πριν εμφανιστεί ειδικό εφέ. είναι όλη κιόλη μιάμιση ώρα. μιάμιση ώρα!! κάνει ένα σωρό πράγματα σωστά στο πώς εισάγει τους χαρακτήρες και το σύμπαν τους. έχει τι, τρεις σκηνές δράσης σε όλη την ταινία; όλα μοιάζουν τόσο λίγα και περιορισμένα στα απαραίτητα, ο magneto έχει τρεις ανίκανους henchmen, το όλο scale είναι διασκεδαστικά μικρό. και πόσο περίεργο (και αναπάντεχα αποτελεσματικό) το να είναι δραματουργική ραχοκοκαλιά της ταινίας η σχέση…
"I will bring you hope, old friend, and I ask only one thing in return - don't get in my way."
There was a time when comic book films where toss a side and label as kids films or studios didn't have faith in them (showed in there shoe string budgets) and when they made one it was so dark that the essence of the characters was completely lost , until Fox and Bryan Singer come out with X-Men. A film that balance well the fantastic elements and reality, that not only appeal to fans of the comic, but kids and adults alike.
This was possible in part by the cast Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen are heavy…
"Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward."
And with that, Patrick Stewart went on to star in a second massively-popular geek franchise.
Whilst not quite on the same level as X2, this is still one of the best superhero movies around. Which is fitting really, being as it revived the comic-book movie genre which, even today, doesn't show any signs of slowing down.
What this film does brilliantly is to introduce you to this world and the characters which the later films,…

Before Spider-Man came along and busted all kinds of blocks at the box office, it was Singer's take on the X-Men comics which put Marvel on the map as the first "well known" comic book movie based on their comics was brought to life.
A combination of excellent casting (particularly Stewart, McKellen, Jackman, Janssen and Pacquin) and a certain sophisticated style to proceedings meant that this was a comic book film which was a whole different beast to the Blade movies and the Spider-Man behemoth to follow. This was a film which wasn't afraid to start in Auschwitz, followed swiftly by a political hearing. It doesn't exactly sound like fun and games does…
Funky facial distortions and even funkier CGI effects meet the X-Men. A team of mutant 'superheros' whose varying abilities conflict with a rival team of mutant 'villains' led by Ian McKellen as Magneto: an old guy with an ability to magnetize and essentially control metal. He leads the Brotherhood, a small team that basically do whatever he says (I'm not sure if they're getting paid, or if they're just stupid). Members include Darth Maul and former professional wrestler Big Sky (Or Michael Myers - whichever is best).
It's pretty standard really, the X-Men has always been fun but here the story is weak, the development thin and too much focus on an irritating rivalry between Cyclops and Wolverine.
Bryan Singer's film is the 2nd comic book movie after Blade in 1998 to put the genre on track after Batman and Robin shitted on the party, with its great cast including : Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and a star-making turn from Hugh Jackman..X-Men is a X-Cellent (sorry) movie and a great start for the series.
"You actually go outside in these things?"
"Well, what would you prefer? Yellow spandex?"
One of my favourite childhood movies, but it lost it's touch after 8 years.
The action was mediocre and okay, but the humour was more of a standout to me; I can't remember Wolverine being so wisecracking.
X-Men was good superhero squad fun; my re-watch was definitely worth it.
Interesante filme sobre el grupo mutante que no consigue explotar correctamente todos sus puntos como sí lo harían otras franquicias superheroicas posteriores. A pesar de sus múltiples defectos, esta cinta es conocida por dos motivos: el primero por llevar a Hugh Jackman a la fama y segundo por hacer lo propio con las películas de superhéroes animando a los estudios a desarrollar este ¿subgénero? que tanto me gusta.
P.D. ¿A alguien le gusta Cíclope? El personaje digo. Es odioso, tanto en los cómics como en las películas.
Although i believe Cyclops and Storm were miscast i think this still holds up as a good SuperHero movie.
Back when the first "X-Men" movie was released in theaters, the storyline made me curious, but I didn't get to watch it until it came out on DVD (or was it still VHS back then?) and a friend of mine showed it at her birthday party. And this movie got me intrigued right away. I guess it was a good thing I've never read any of the comics before, because that way, it was easy to "get to know" the characters as they were portrayed in the movie. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) became one of my immediate favorites, as did Rogue (Anna Paquin) and the greatest "archenemies-that-used-to-be-best-friends" in movie history, Charles "Professor X" Xavier and Erik "Magneto" Lehnsherr (portrayed by the…
Long time since I watched this last.
In comparison to the current wave of superhero flicks, this is incredibly understated.
It zips along at just over an hour and a half (10 minutes of credits notwithstanding ), in that relatively short time, telling stories of outsiders trying to find acceptance in different ways.
It's a pretty satisfying romp, with punchy bits and some flips thrown in.
Not bad at all, really. Some funny bits.
With mediocre acting, uninspired action sequences and a plethora of absurd moments, X-Men takes itself seriously but is nothing more than an average superhero film. It almost seems like it's spoofing itself at times especially as it hasn't aged well.
A great way to introduce X-Men into a film. This film is really fun to watch especially during a time when superhero movies weren't a big thing. I love the casting of Hugh Jackman and I love the story of Magneto and Xavier who are probably on the top ten for my favorite comic book characters. A thing i would change though is the character of Toad, which I wasn't really fond of how the character was made in this film.
X-Men is an enjoyable (and more importantly successful) superhero comic book movie. The highlight is the rivalry between Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, but it's the themes this movie hints at which make it really interesting. Hally Berry feels a little miscast as Storm - or it might just be that the character doesn't really come across as being particularly interesting - but everyone else feels well cast. Good enough special effects but nothing spectacular.
Singer's X-Men might have been made five, ten years before the effects to make superhero movies really good were there but that doesn't excuse the dreadful script, poor casting or surprisingly lax direction.
