Possibly the best superhero film ever made at the time it came out, and while it can't claim that title anymore, it's still holding up extremely well after years of a massive output in the genre. The themes of acceptance, persecution, extremism, survival, identity and loyalty have never before nor since in this film franchise been explored with as much pathos and elegance as they did here, and the dialogue and action are both stellar as well. This movie, probably more than any other single film, is why I became a superhero film fan. ( )

X-Men United. 2003. Brian Cox plays the baddie who kidnaps Charles to help him with his dastardly plan to rid the world of mutants. It was OK, but I really can't warm to any of the characters and I thought Hugh Jackman looked particularly pointy. I just don't see the attraction there. I will soldier on though. 6/10 ( )

The US military tries to kill superhumans.

Pretty boring. Most of the ending is a mess. It could have been a lot worse, but it's sad that this is considered to be one of the better X-Men movies.
