Ripley's movie review

Loved Nightcrawler's method of transportation, Mystique's boobs were in too many scenes (they're impossible to ignore), Wolverine has gone from a sexy bad attitude to just a bad attitude, Rogue was pretty much absent, most of the attempts at humour fell a bit flat, Storm still bugs me, and wasn't that Harry Potter I saw?

It was entertaining and I liked it.

Newt's movie review

Call me demanding but I expect telepaths to be able to tell me a little more than "There's something wrong".

You don't have to have read the comic series to follow what's going on here, and it might actually help if you haven't due to the deviations from the story arch. The effects were cool, the continuation from X-Men was great, the story itself was standard Marvel, and the setup for X3 was blatantly obvious in a number of areas. It's good, and it does make me look forward to the next instalment, much like waiting for next month's issue.
