Movie Review: X-Men: The Last Stand


My Rating: 2Stars

This evening I went to see the movie “X-Men: The Last Stand” at JP Theatre, Causeway Bay.

After seeing the Mission Impossible sequel only a month ago, this sequel of the X-Men series was definitely a disappointment. The plot was weak the story-line was not believable. The acting was mediocre in my opinion.

One of the most ridiculous thing in the movie was when the villain actually lifted Golden Gate Bridge so that he and his followers can reach an island off San Francisco Bay, called “Alcatraz Island”. As many of you who had been to San Francisco or live there, already realize that taking a 15 minute ferry ride to the island is a daily event. The writers could have made the villain and his followers take some sort of futuristic “fast” boat to the island and it would be more believable and equally impressive.

Aside from this there were many other scenes that are neither believable or necessary to the plot, but those other scenes were not shown in the trailers so I do not want to blow it for any of you would want to be defiant and venture to spend the value of a movie ticket to find out.

Although the title of this latest sequel suggest it is the last of the series, now there is rumors that a forth sequel may be ready to go into production. I hope that the movie goers will reflect their opinion readily so that those movie investors would spend their money on sequels that may have much better plots (ie. “Indiana Jones series”, etc.).
