|Only people with no clue of X-Men can call this the best in the series|

James.Speed: Being a huge X-Men fan, I highly anticipated the latest X-Men movie. However, Cyclops, Mystique and Rogue - who all had big roles in the first two - were highly underused in this film. Although Beast looked extremely cool, he was almost pointless. If you dont play video games (and i dont), you wouldnt have a clue that Nightcrawler left the X-Men off screen after X2. Iceman was also underused, as was Kitty Pryde, which was pointless to have in the film, expect to tease the Rogue and Iceman's relationship problems. I hated the fact that Cyclops was killed off. I can use that point alone, to say why I dislike the movie, because Cyclops plays a big role in the Dark Phoenix storyline in the comics. I praise Hugh Jackman, and Famke Janssen for their respective roles. Ian McKellen, Kelsey Grammer, James Marsden, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore also did well with their roles.
