i loved how they made jean look, and followed the whole logan loses every girl he loves type deal. how close jean was to mariko in the comics...
hank turned out really, REALLY cool....and iceman at the end
i also like how the followed the ultimate universe in a boatload of shots. from the way the look to certain little things that happened. it's really kinda a coimc nerd's "i see what you did there" kind of thing that the typical movie-goer wouldn't notice or care about.
having said that, the way they killed cyclops was fucking RETARDED!!! oh wait...nevermind...it wasn't retarded because we didn't get to SEE JACK SHIT!! they acutally killed a lead character OFF PANEL! who the fuck does that? not even in the comics are writers THAT stupid.
and i knew the "cure" was a farce, i laughed when magneto moved the chess piece at the end (the cool laugh), i hated warren's character because he didn't do shit, why was marrow a man, why couldn't madrox have more lines (he's funny), and uh.... I'M THE JUGGERNAUT BITCH!!
yeah....so discuss...now that i've seen the movie
You're a comic fan and you just now see the movie?
last movie i went to see in theaters was harry potter 4, and i was dragged...and i love harry potter.
i think the last movie before that was matrix revolutions
i started to type out how killing charles was the dumbest thing ever...but it appears i didn't watch through the ending credits
i thought hte movie was quite horrible. some decent action scenes here n there but the story was horrible tried to fit to many storylines in 1 movie.. boo
The only lasting impression I was left with, all these months after watching it is how BAD the cable work looked in the action scenes. Especially Beast. Thats about the only thing I can remember about the movie.
there's two storylines in the movie, mixed in with a boatload of referances of certain characters to certain arcs. but that's it.
I hated it because Cyke was killed off in the first 10 minutes. Wtf was that? Oh yeah, and they find his glasses but dont even look for his body? And no funeral for Cyke? God I hate that stupid movie.
Not to mention that the ending was all about wolverine once again. Why even make a wolverine movie, they already did that three times over.
I don't think that Cyke died. He just dissapearred and only his glasses remained.
Wolverine movie so X4 won't have Wolverine in it.
The only reason they killed off Cyke was because he couldn't do the movie (he was working on Superman), and unlike the other achronal omissions of prior characters (nightcrawler et al.), they couldn't just omit Cyke. So they did the easy thing: kill him off early. But yes, it was gay.
All in all though, I felt this was the weakest of all the comic movies made so far, however, it was better than all the tv comic movies/shows ever. That said, I think it would have fared better as a made-for-tv movie, but then the budget wouldn't have worked out. But as much as the budget was, the special effects were SHIT.
Void, go see V for Vendetta, Sin City, Superman Returns, and Batman Begins. Now those are quality movies.
But in the end, they can't make a sequel to this. They'll have to go back and pick off where X2 left off, without the achronalogies.
i haven't seen superman returns yet, because a dvd rip hasn't been posted.
but i've seen V, sin city, and batman altogether about 40 times
i don't think you understand, i don't goto the theaters...i have over 600 DVDs
sure they can, the cure is only temporary...magneto with all his power could nudge the chess piece just a little after the incident.
and since i'm guessing they never found cyke's body, he's not "dead," so they could do something with that.
however, i don't think anyone's going to make another x-men movie for a long time. makes me wonder what they'll do after iron man and wolverine.
I'd rather see a Captain America movie before Avengers.
The action was good, but they didn't really flesh out anyone's storyline. They just kept jumping from character to character. If there wasn't the first two movies to support this one, I'd probably think even less of this one.
They have the two animated Ultimate Avengers movies on DVD. I enjoyed them.
I loved it because Cyclops got his whiny little emo bitch ass nuked.
Cyclops didn't die.
There were 4 alternate endings to the movie. The one showed in the movie after the credits is Prof X's voice in the man with the coma (the one in the TV where he's showing his students). He said "Dr. Moira"
1. The professor X ending, where a patient on the table calls out to Dr. Moira.
2. The Grave of Jean Grey shaking, and then a shot of it compleatly empty.
3. Mystique hands a case to Magneto, you don't get to see it's contents.
4. The red ray of cyclops explodes out of Alkali Lake before a rapid fade to black
Besides the Professor X ending, were any of the other endings ever verified?
Well according to wiki:
@ easter eggs
I had a feeling they didnt kill him...
but I wanna see these 'deleted' scenes to see wtf is up with the cyke/jean grey altercation
the theatrical version seamed rushed, everything thrown together to get it out in the slotted time frame
I'll probably pick up the dvd when it comes out
