‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ finds us returning to the world divided : humans and mutants and mutants. The humans have developed a “Cure” to the mutant phenonmenon and this divides mutant kind. Some mutants want the cure and other feel that human should be more tolerant. Magneto feels humans will impose the cure on to mutant kind and Professor X feels than mutants can make their own choice and humans must be defended from humans.
This one has the conflict reaching its boiling point and the pot boils over. There will be casualities on all three sides. Finding no real resolvtion found. To me the movie felt rushed and ending abruptly. Its still entertaing and a well told story. It felt like the closing chapter of the series where the pull out all the stop to appeased the fan base.
Character not making to this sequel is Nightcrawler. Stay until the end, there is a surprise at the end. Leaving a door open for a 4th. Hopefully they will add the only noticable character not shown, Gambit. You check X-Men and X2: X-Men United.
I give it a 3/5 Gs.
