A solid entry into the superhero genre, X - Men lands some solid punches while missing some as well. The prejudice theme was well done and the intellectual mutants are great as played by McKellen and Stewart. That plus an awesome Wolverine. But the CGI scenes are what spoil it, making it look way outdated and kinda silly. Regardless, a good start to a franchise.
Made on smaller budget than superhero films today, X-Men suffers from rushed writing and sometimes crap effects (even for its day). Still, the Wolverine/Rogue relationship holds up very well at the heart of the movie.
I was putting off watching this film as I just assumed that it was going to be bad, along with all the others. But it was surprisingly really enjoyable.
