X-Men ★★★

STRESS RATING: 🌀🌀🌀 ½ 
Mild action with a surprising amount of near-death experiences. Not exactly thrilling, but it tries.

Personal Rating: 6.5
A pretty average movie on the whole, though I probably enjoyed it a bit more than I should’ve thanks to my soft spot for the X-men (I had a few comic books of them when I was younger and liked a lot of the characters). I don’t think it’d be that hot of a take anyway to say that X-men was at least entertaining, despite its just-okay story and lackluster effects, thanks to just how fun the mutants  are. I mean, they’re a little cardboard-ish here, but they’re fun! And that’s all that matters. Hoping I get to see Beast and more Kitty Pryde for the future films.
