Storyline Heading
A “cure” for mutancy threatens to alter the course of history. For the first time, mutants have a choice: retain their uniqueness, though it isolates and alienates them, or give up their powers to fit in. The opposing viewpoints of mutant leaders Charles Xavier, who preaches tolerance, and Eric Lehnsherr, who believes in the survival of the fittest, are put to the ultimate test – triggering the war to end all wars.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Fantasy Sci-Fi - Like the first two films, this is an effects-laden, action-filled superhero adventure. However, those looking for more of the deeper character drama of the first two films may be slightly disappointed by the more action-centered approach of this one.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good X-Men: The Last Stand is the first blockbuster of the 2006 summer season that hasn't caused me to shake my head with disappointment. It delivers pretty much what's expected.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good I liked the action, I liked the absurdity, I liked the incongruous use and misuse of mutant powers, and I especially liked the way it introduces all of those political issues and lets them fight it out with the special effects.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average X-Men: The Last Stand expands on the themes of discrimination and alienation explored in the first two films, and still retains the franchise's signature kick-butt action features.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 222 moviegoers:Children and teens, both male and female, LOVED "THE LAST STAND." The twentysomething and adult male opinions are a bit weak for this high profile movie, but still very good. The problem is that there aren't as many "Fantastic" opinions as I like to see and there are a little too many "Good" and lower opinions.

The ladies enjoyed it more than the guys. Their level of "Fantastic" opinions is very high and is what I expected from the guys. But, like the guys, there were a few who didn't think this was a great movie.

Overall, I have no problem highly recommending this latest, and hopefully not last, X-Men movie to everyone. I can't imagine a true fan of these movies to be disappointed in "The Last Stand."
