X-Men 3: The Last Stand rounded off the X-Men trilogy in style. The superhero genre has found a place amongst the greatest films ever made with Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, Bryan Singer's X-Men and X2 and Jon Favreau's Iron Man. The third installation of X-Men is directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2) and is by far the most electrifying and fun of the three X-Men movies.
Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Famke Janssen, Anna Paquin, Kelsey Grammer, James Marsden, Rebecca Romijn, Vinnie Jones, Ellen Page, Ben Foster... it's like a wish list cast for the X-Men franchise. They don't all have the screen time they would have wanted, but all-in-all it makes a great team effort.
The performances, costumes, special effects and visuals are comic book heaven to the X-fan. While the film was downplayed due to Bryan Singer's choice to discontinue in the capacity as director, it still remains faithful to the comic series without the ability of Singer. Ratner's direction is suited to blockbusters, which makes his movies loud, colossal and above all fun.
X-Men: The Last Stand introduces characters such as: Beast, Leech, Juggernaut, Multiple Man, Spike and Archangel to name a few. These new X-Men characters just add to the already large cast. The cast and popularity of the series could easily warrant the need for a TV series, yet Ratner manages to rein this beast of a movie in with an epic conclusion and loads of action along the way without taking 3 hours! If you like action blockbusters, you'll just love X-Men 3: The Last Stand.
