X-Men: The Last Stand

Overall Rating: # # # # (4 Buckets o' Popcorn)

(Merlin) More yummy X-Men goodness! I thought Kelsey Grammar made an excellent Beast as well as Ben Foster (remember him from the Punisher?) as Angel. Great exploration of the "mutant cure" idea. They also went pretty dark in this one, further letting loose of Wolverine and death/mayhem in general. I really would have liked more with some of the other characters.. Colossus especially, and some of the "Phoenix Saga" plotline didn't develop or seem to go anywhere, with what seemed like a lot of loose ends. Overall an excellent movie, hopefully they'll keep serving up great comic-based films like these.
