Loved some of the character redesigns and histories. Felt it could have been grander.

Magneto was by far the best bit of this movie.

One of the best characters in the franchise currently. He was originally an X-character, anyway.

I really, really enjoyed this film.

As is the problem with the X-movies, the cast is sometimes too big to focus on them all adequetely. I liked Jean, Scott and Kurt. The Horsemen aside from Magneto were pretty much non-characters, IMO.

Fassbender and McEvoy as Magneto and Professor X were fantastic as usual - they could pretty much carry the film by themselves. Evan Peters as Quicksilver (with a bigger role this time round) was a treat.

Disagree with the critics on this one. I think it may be the best of the new trilogy to date, though I've enjoyed them all quite a lot.

8.3/10.

FA was a good crossover, best read with the run up to it, though!

Did you make this thread simply to complain?

Here's a novel idea: why don't you actually read the new X-titles and decide for yourself if they're good or not? I know, there's a whopping 3 books at the moment, but I think you'll manage.

Also, Saga and Walking Dead are the only good comics coming out? Oh lord, spare me your off-handed, misinformed criticism.

Co-Sign

Tri-sign.

XX-Men wasn't great, either.

I really enjoyed both series but I think Uncanny X-Force takes it.
