    The best kind of summer blockbuster -- the kind that makes you immediately crave a sequel.
  2. Balances brains, brawn and heart in ideal proportions. The actors - some first-rate, all enjoyable - never get overshadowed by the special effects, which dazzle us without gory excess.

    Recedes to a string of mere action exploits. These are proficiently executed but, for all their visual authority, not much more than routine.

    Stylish, exciting and an occasionally poignant sci-fi adventure spectacle.
  7. Isn't juvenile, it isn't even infantile. It's prenatal!

The cast is OK, but they sure do their best to bring life to these uncanny characters. The story is pretty easy to follow, which is good too. Director Bryan Singer does a great job on creating empathy, and the tone feels just right. Unfortunately, the movie strays a little bit from the comics, specially considering looks and relationships, but nonetheless, "X-Men" proves to be an interesting and exciting film for the general audience.
