X-Men: The Last Stand


As a “cure” for genetic mutations is found in a boy, Magneto (Ian McKellen) declares war on those who want to use the antidote against mutants. Oh, and Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) is back. The third chapter in this series is inferior to the predecessors, but still well made. The undertones of the story are very political, and the condemnation of conservatism is obvious. The story sags at times, but director Brett Ratner delivers the goods, particularly in a stunning sequence involving the Golden Gate Bridge. The mutants and their talents are fun to watch.

2006-U.S. 104 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Brett Ratner. Cast: Hugh Jackman (Logan/Wolverine), Halle Berry (Ororo Munroe/Storm), Ian McKellen (Eric ”Magneto” Lensherr), Patrick Stewart, Famke Janssen, Anna Paquin… Kelsey Grammer, Rebecca Romijn, Michael Murphy, Vinnie Jones, R. Lee Ermey, Ellen Page.

Trivia: Bryan Singer was originally set to direct this movie, but ultimately decided to make Superman Returns (2006) instead. Followed by The Wolverine (2013) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
