    Why does everyone seem to hate Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde so much? I thought that she was a perfect casting choice, and felt exactly like the comics to me. She was one of the few good parts from the Last Stand....

    People don't like change... but worse yet, people don't like it when another girl steals Rogue's boyfriend ;)   
     
    I genuinely think it's not the actress or the performance that people hate.  It's the role.

    I didn't know she was on the list of movie complaints. She was huge for a while, and has been fading since X3

    Ellen Page was the highlight of that crapfest of a film. 
     
    Cyclops dying in the first 15 minutes? An X-Men film without Cyclops is like a Batman film without Alfred, Gordon, the Batmobile or Gotham City.

    Nailed it.
    Rogue fans felt sorry for the way Bobby seemed to be pushing her aside because of Kitty, this led to a lot of people hating the character.

    I didn't have a problem with Ellen Page as Shadowcat . hell I was pissed they didnt go more in depth with her character.  
     
    Oh yeah i was one of the people who didn't think she was stealing Rogue's boyfriend. Bobby keeps coming in her face asking to do this and that. Kitty just took it as Bobby was being a friend. If anyone paid attention you can see that she was looking as Bobby like an older brother she never had. Most of the time in movie Kitty was just hanging out and going with the flow. Close to the end in the blackbird when everyone was getting for the mission, Kitty was just sitting there thinking about not messing up. Hell Kitty nor Bobby didnt even sit together. Kitty didn't look over to Bobby and be like "oooh this might our first and last mission togther. i wish i would have kissed you on the frozen water fountain. I just want you to know I-I-I love you. Kiss me! Nom nom nom"

     

    Rogue was just being a jealous ass making things complicated. To be honest I didn't really see Bobby do anything wrong. he was trying to be the good boyfriend but Rogue kept pushing him away so he got the hell out of dodge and went to someone else who appreciate his company and kept it plutonic. Kitty was no fool, she also saw what's going on. She knew that Bobby was going thru some shit and they used each other as comfort blankets to get by until Rogue could come back acting right.

    That is the problem with Bryan Singer he has his head up his ass so much that he doesn't realize with the changes he makes really messes up a movie. If had just stuck with Kitty and Colossus romance in the first two and bump Rogue and iceman trying to do something, the poor girl wouldnt get heat she doesn't deserve at all.   
     
    One more thing I do think the chick who played Kitty in the first movie was more attractive than one from 2nd one and Ellen Page. I like Ellen Page and I think she is sort of attractive but I feel they should have stuck with the first one. That's just me.

    I know you made this comment five months ago but this is the first time I've seen it... so...

    I'm guessing you haven't seen the 'extended' version of the movie where Bobby and Kitty kiss? Out on the ice...

    I agree with you about sticking with the first actress. I think Ellen Page is great, I just don't think she'd played Kitty right... Kitty is supposed to be a genius (literally), and is just very different then what Ellen Page portrayed. But to be fair, Kitty (Ellen) really didn't get much air time to develop the character...

    Rouge fans had more to be upset about--primarily for the fact that the movie version didn't do justice to the character at all. She was horribley miscast and conceptualized since the first movie.

    An extended cut? When was that put out? Far as I understand Ratner said that the theatrical version was the only one. I have heard that there are extra scenese but unconfirmed, Like after the Professor and Moria scene at the end credits,  Cyclops is also found unconscious in some ragtag hospital then he open his eyes and the screen goes red.

    Jubilee was in the first movie? Pics? And I didn't hate EP... didn't like her either though, she seemed a bit bland. I'm used to Kitty Pryde being a little more bubbly.

    I was talking about this with another user i really liked page as kitty. i thought she kinda worked well as Kitty. whenever i read kitty i always heard a voice like that. Kitty's the kinda dorky girl who can also dish out total sass and I think that's why page just fits the mold for kitty. she's one of those girls who's adorable and really pretty in that respect but not straight-on pretty, she's like the ultimate dorky girl next door.

    I love Ellen Page and I love Kitty. Anybody who has a problem with it should burn.

    I thought she did well as Kitty Pryde. But personally I would have actually prefered to see Summer Glau as Kitty Pryde (She actually did audition for the role). One thing I would have liked about Summer Glau playing Kitty was that she was closer to the character's actually height and build. Kitty Pryde is around 5'6 and has Black belt fighting skills, Summer Glau is roughly that height (I believe she's a little taller) and as seen in Firefly and Terminator she can kick ass as well. Ellen Page is only 5'1 and I doubt she could really fight.

    I do not think Ellen Page did a bad job, I just think the script didn't work with the character

    Not hate, but disappointment within the script for her character in the movie.

    I love Ellen Page but I don't even remember her as Kitty.Jean Grey was pretty much the only thing I remember from that god awful film.
