Never ceases to amaze me how people can dismiss a movie out of hand without good reason. The thing to remember is that it's a 'movie' and it can't always follow a printed story to the letter. I loved this movie despite all of the criticism levelled at it, and it was as good as any other X-Men movie. Good effects, good cast, good story (I never did get to read the comic version) and a tribute to the franchise. I loved it for what it was, nothing more, nothing less.
