X-Men is a 2000 comic book action film. It's directed by Bryan Singer and stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Halle Berry.
The story is about a group of people with mutated DNA, which has given them different abilities. Some of these abilities are invisible and some of them are very obvious. Professor Charles Xavier runs a school for "gifted youngsters", a home to young mutants who not only want to learn but also want to develop their special talents. When a group of opposing forces seeks to disturb the peace, Professor X forms the X-Men to fight back.
This was one of the first modern day comic book adaptations. Although it was quite good for its time, I don't feel as though it's aged quite as well as some other films from the same genre, or even from the same series. I certainly don't feel that it's a bad film at all, and you can still find some enjoyment in watching it.
The veteran actors bring great charisma to the film and are very entertaining to watch, whether they're on the side of good or evil. Hugh Jackman makes an excellent Wolverine and this is just the starting point of what has continued to be an iconic role and performance. Some of the other casting choices are a bit questionable, suchas Halle Berry as Storm. She never really did a good job in the role, in my opinion.
This is a good film, not a great one. It's worth watching at least once. The film is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 104 minutes.
X-Men is a great series, and this was definitely action packed. I really enjoyed watching this.
I surprisingly liked this. I tend to sway away from comic book movies but this was actually really good!
Omg im a huge fan of comics and this movie is so amazing ! Need to watch !
Hard to believe it's been almost 15 years since this movie came out. Based on the Marvel comic by the same name, X-Men takes place in the near future. A young runaway mutant named Rogue and Wolverine, a bad-tempered, quick-healing mutant with retractable metal claws, are attacked by the powerful Magneto and his lackeys. Fortunately, students of the Professor Charles Xavier interfere and bring them back to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Here they learn about the conflict between Xavier and the militant Magneto, who wants to power a device that will genetically alter humans, with possibly deadly results. Only Xavier's students can stop Magneto's plans. Pass the popcorn...
