The explosive X-Men motion picture trilogy officially draws to a close with this release that finds Rush Hour director Brett Ratner stepping in for Bryan Singer to tell the tale of a newly discovered mutant "cure," and the polarizing effect it has on mutant/man relations. With the pressure on mutants to give up their powers and pledge alliance with the human race reaching a critical turning point, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) urges tolerance and understanding as his nemesis Magneto (Ian McKellen) gathers a powerful resistance in preparation for the ultimate war against humankind. Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, and James Marsden return to reprise the roles they played in the previous two X-Men films, with Kelsey Grammer and Vinnie Jones joining the cast as Beast and Juggernaut respectively.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The X-Men trilogy draws to an eminently satisfying conclusion with this highly emotional, action-packed installment focusing on the final showdown between the "good" mutants led by Dr. Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and the "evil" ones led by Magneto (Ian McKellen). The latter's carefully calculated rebellion against human society gathers momentum when the government announces its plans to implement a recently discovered "cure" that neutralizes the mutant gene, but the X-Men (and -Women) remain steadfast in their defense of the status quo -- even though it poses risks to them as well. Director Brett Ratner, who made his bones helming the Rush Hour movies, demonstrates his mettle by steering the complex story line through a maze of plot complications and new characters. He also shows himself more than equal to the task of staging elaborate action sequences that rely heavily on cutting-edge special effects, and the film's climactic donnybrook is one that X-Men fans will long remember. One thing, though: Prepare yourself for a high body count. Several major characters in this franchise won't make it to the final fadeout, although colorful new ones -- including Kelsey Grammer's Beast, Ben Foster's Angel, and Vinnie Jones's Juggernaut -- take their places. Of paramount importance is the fate of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen), resurrected from the dead as the aptly named Phoenix; her character is the linchpin of the whole story. As superhero movies go, X-Men: The Last Stand is top shelf in every respect, and it’s sure to hold up in repeated viewings.
All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
As a conclusion to the arcs of the first two films, X-Men: The Last Stand is a serviceable entry that is breezy fun, yet without the depth that has come to be expected from the series. It's actually amazing that the film is as good as it is -- director Brett Ratner might have had some tremendous box office weight under his belt, but most of that was due to his stars rather than his proficiency. That said, he manages to do an admirable job of mimicking previous helmer Bryan Singer's style and feel, which set the franchise apart from its big screen comic contemporaries. The movie's main problems stem from its unfocused script -- a mish-mash of comic mythology that tries to tackle too much in one film, never mind do it in 100 minutes. While some characters are handed a few juicy moments to relish in throughout the picture, there are loads of others that consistently get short-changed, most of whom are new to the franchise. And for such a short film, they sure do tackle a heap of main-character deaths throughout the picture; never mind that Wolverine (once again played to perfection by Hugh Jackman) has practically been defanged as a family-friendly feral hero with a heart of gold. All of this is blanketed under a limited budget and hastened schedule that's terribly apparent in the big final showdown at Alcatraz. So why is the film still worth half a hoot? Part of it has to do with the cast and their continuing fine work, though there is something to be said about the flick's blend of humor and action that will keep it palatable to most audiences. While there might not be too many "wow" moments, the third film is okay enough for summer movie escapism, though nowhere near the bar set by Singer in the two installments leading up to this.

I thought the first two x-men were great. They were well written for comic book movies and the action was top notch. However, in this one i felt like it was you average comic book movie. The action was poorly executed and some of the scenes were done poorly. For example, in one scene, the brotherhood is moving the Golden Gate bridge to Alcatraz while it is still LIGHT OUTSIDE. However as soon as the bridge is down, it turns to NIGHT all of the sudden!!!!!!!! Now that is just a bad editting job! Watch it again people and you will see what i mean!

X-Men 3 was a serious letdown after the series original director, Bryan Singer, produced two excellent films. The production values suffered, the script and dialog were atrocious, the new characters were barely developed and the continued characters were stagnant. Yeah, we're talking about an action flick and the effects and battle scenes were impressive. But it did not live up to the first two films by any stretch of the imagination. Rent if you must see it, but pass on adding this one to your collection. . .

X-Men introduced us to a wonderful concept that comics could become good movies. X2 continued this with flair, and while strayed a bit from story stayed true to it's comic book heritage. X3 showed us that when people know something will make money they will not put any effort into it. The movie focuses less on what the Xmen stand for and more on whom Brett Ratner decided to focus the movie on, mainly Storm and Wolverine. Deaths are thrown in for shock value and characters who had less than two seconds in the movie only to show that they are there, along with a plot that that seemed sewn together just to get it done, make this the worst comic adaptation of a movie ever. Those of you expecting the Dark Phoenix will have to accept a campy watered down version of Joss Whedon's Dark Willow instead, for those of you asking what that shining thing in the water was at the end of X2, you will never know because it was never used. Do yourself a favor don't watch this movie instead hope that Bryan Singer will redo this horrible let down.

No. Just no. This is the worst of the three movies, as several others have pointed out. It feels like alot of it was cut and the rest was just mishmashed together. I had to see it because I am a fan, and a fan of the Juggernaut. The Juggernaut was altered considerably from the comic version by the way, for anyone who cares. There was one really incredible scene with Magneto ripping up the Golden Gate bridge, but the needless killing and general sloppiness of this movie gives it such a strange feel compared to the earlier two. I suppose that should be expected when it has a different director.

I lost my mind when the X-Men movie series first started, I've stayed with it through its worst movies. X3, this one, is one of the worst in my honest opinion though. Second on that list is "Wolverine Goes to Japan" aka The Wolverine. I don't like to speak of either, but this one is at least, slightly, better than that one. The rest of the series is amazing for the most part though. Origins gets iffy and I can't talk about Deadpool, but still better than this one.. I agree with most of the other negative reviews. Lol Nothing against the casting,  But the storyline...and the ending...just....no.

In the final X-Men movie which also ends the exciting trilogy, a "cure" for mutants has been made turning them human. Also, to make matters worse Jean Grey is resurrected from the dead as the Dark Pheinox and joins Magneto and his brotherhood of mutants. This sets up one side of the chess board and the other side are Xavior's regime of mutants, Wolverine, Storm, Collossis, Beast, and others that try to fight Magneto. In the end it is Magento's botherhood of mutants VS Xavior's X-Men. This is the best X-Men movie that is the most emotional and exciting and is without a doubt the best. See this one. And also see the new X-Men movie Wolverine which shows the events before the original X-Men. The movie should be coming out next year durning the summer.

XMEN: The Last Stand was probably the best film in the XMEN trilogy. I'm a fan of the comics and I fully enjjoyed this film. Thumbs up!

This movie has awesome effects and a way cool story! I give it a 5, it's definately the best of the 3! And I hear next year they are making another one.

While this latest, and possibly last foray into the world of X-Men is better then many comic book movies, and perhaps exceptionally good for most viewers, to those that know anything about the comic book world of X-Men this movie was a vast disappointment. It's true that many new characters were added, but they weren't used to their full potential, nor were those of the carry overs from the previous two movies. And the final climactic scene, well it just didn't deliver what this movie promised. It wasn't a 'last stand' in any way other than the obvious of being the last in a trilogy. Fun to watch but I for one expected more...

Although I personally felt X-Men 2 was the greatest comic book movie ever made, X-3 is the perfect closure to the trilogy. The mutant saga hits a fever pitch in this film of epic proportions. Do not miss this one, this is truly a must for X-Men fans and then some.

Yeah, so I rush to get the DVD today, and what do I shoot for? The self-proclaimed "Collector's Edition". But guess what? There is nothing different from this version and the regular release other than a Stan Lee comic and a nice shiny case. So why did I pay $10 more for this? I have no clue. Don't buy this edition, just buy the regular release and save the money. I wish I did. Wow way to really rip people off. Thanks...

X-Men the Last Stand is a great movie! X3 is the Last movie in the X-Men Trilogy! Brett Ratner did a great job directing this movie! Jean Grey returns from the beyond to become Dark Pheonix! Wolverine and the X-Men tries to save Jean Grey from becoming evil. Highly Recommended!

With the departure of director Bryan Singer (of X-Men 1 & 2, and The Usual Suspects fame) and the addition of Brett Ratner (of...Rush Hour 1 & 2 "fame"), the X-Men series took a huge a blow. Although some of the parts in the movie are entertaining and the effects are good, you are better off reading the comics or rewatching X-2.

X-2 was so wonderfully done that the poor quality of this one is more than a disappointment, it is a shame. The plot is sketchy, the acting is poor, and the characters, for lack of a better phrase, act completely out of character. It gets so bad that a few people die and the rest of them don't seem to care until the last five minutes. The only good things in the movie were the special effects, but that doesn't make up for a bad movie. I definately do NOT recommend X-3.

The first movie was a reminder that not all comic book movies suck, such as Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. I am a big fan of X-Men and loved the first two movies. Then this abomination came out. I didn't even have high hopes for this after lose some of their amazing staff. Anyone liking this wasn't watching the same movie I saw. First the Golden Gate Bridge scene was badly editted. It went from light to night in a matter of minutes. The fight scenes we not bad, but the anticipated Pyro vs Iceman fight was so disappointing. It was such an anticlimactic fight that it made me sick. One final thing and this is from a comic fan stand point. Leech should never have been able to take Juggernauts strength away because Juggernaut is not a mutant. He had nothing to fear of anything. So watch this movie to get you closure but nothing more. I also do not have many expectations for any upcoming X-men or Wolverine movies.

The movie was bad from the begining the whole idea of taking the mutant abilitys away, was kind of well dumb. I thought that the acting was mediocre, and the new characters were performed badly. All thre movies were ironicly on a lake in the last battle scene. The movie was also edit wrong in one scene. Were it turns from day to night in a matter of minutes. The special effects were ok not mind blowing. However the worst part were the fighting scenes. I don't recomend the movie seeing how abysmal it was.
