    I loved this film,watching it 5x at the cinema!
    Famke J was superb & i cried when she sacrificed herself,...& then jumped outta my seat with excitement with the glimpse of the Phoenix at the end,& promising so much for the next film.
    We all know how that turned out eh! 😞😕

    Nightcrawler was able to save Rogue because she was free falling through the AIR. He is scared about teleporting into an object... since he has no idea what the room looks like inside, it's always possible he'll teleport into a control console, or a filing cabinet.

    I'm willing to give the X-Men the 007 pass- it doesn't necessarily HAVE to make sense. But the original X-Men TAS WAS better than ANY of the movies.

    For all the ones who say that Xavier doesn’t have telekinesis didnt xavier tell logan that jean had the same powers has him? I know he meant the mind reading thing but couldnt he just have been confused and taught that in this universe that they made it so that he had it

    Jesus this was a bad review. Some really odd complaints, many of which demonstrate either willful ignorance of the movie's story (Xavier isn't a telekinetic) and/or a lack of any basic research. Jesus man, what the hell happened?

    Everyone let’s just remain calm and chill. Good old critic isn’t making reviews, he is creating content through which to entertain you, usually with comedy. There’s no reason to get upset because he got a few facts wrong... although I pray to God he has enough common sense not to use wiki.

    Really Singer, did you read that line...out loud? did you ever you read that line out loud? You could have. I mean, you clearly could have. You just stated...That This Powerfully Telekinetic/Telepathic mutant, whose idea to save her mutant friends from drowning in a raging waterfall inside a jet by stepping out of the jet, lifting the jet and building a psychic wall towards the waterfall, waiting for it to claim her life while her mutant friends are saved...was THE ONLY WAY to save them.

      Xavier can lift the jet from the inside but...

    What I find ESPECIALLY amusing about this film is how everyone focuses on the Jean/Logan/Scott triangle (basically the 'romance' between a sex object, a whore and a sock puppet) when there isn't a SINGLE woman in this movie who Logan didn't have 'a scene' with :P

    No offense Doug, but you really feel like you were reaching with this one. I had my complaints too (Heck my friends and me even has the same questions about the scenario at the end with the jet when this first came out). But for the most part it was pretty well written. Here though most of your complaints felt like too focused nitpicks.

    Wolverine did date Mystique in WW2, later on she would date Sabretooth before settling down with Magneto.
    I know this because I have a copy of that particular run. It was a Sabretooth 4 issue miniseries from way back in 1993.
    I think she also had a thing with Mister Sinister but I'm not sure if it was mutual.

      Basically to also be able to hold off the water. She is neither super powerful nor super fast in the movie. She is also shown to direct her powers with her hands and in general needing to at least see the target for some time. It may not be totally like in the comics where she developed way past this level, but she was also not that powerful in the early comics as well.

    the thing about nightcrawler teleporting out of the plane is that it was in the air, there was no chance that he could teleport into somthing dangerous, he teleported roughly where he thought she was and caught her, i do admit him teleporting back inside the plane is a stretch, but you could blame that on stress, people can do crazy things when they are under a lot of stress, in the facility, nightcrawler wasnt under any real stress, at least not in the same way as before, so he didnt think he could teleport into a room where he could easely accidently telleport into somthing.

    When Rogue was fumbling with the seat belt on the jet, isn't she just having trouble because of her gloves (trying to use a cloth surface to grip smooth metal)? That's the impression that I got, and it makes MUCH more sense than "the seat belt on our super high-tech jet is broken".
