X-Men 3 (or X-Men: The Last Stand) concludes the first trilogy of mutants vs humans stories without director Bryan Singer while still trying to capture his beats. In this film, a "cure" for mutants is available, which divides loyalties and causes Magneto to again seek war against humankind. Cue appearances by Angel, Psylocke, Juggernaut, Shadowcat, Callisto, Multiple Man and others to jump in just in time for their 15 mins of fame and a big, noisy climax as Jean Grey embraces her dark side and becomes Phoenix! With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, can the heroes save the day? Not without some sacrifices and a few wasted characters, sadly. Some good elements, but not the best way to end the series...a bad turn which repeats itself again unfortunately in 2019's Dark Phoenix.Erik M.
Eric Lensherr: Charles Xavier did more for mutants than you will ever know. My single greatest regret is that he had to die for our dream to live.
