X-Men — The Last Stand

(USA, 2006, 105 minutes)

The discovery of a possible cure for genetic mutations threatens to spark a full-fledged war between renegade mutant Magneto and his crew and the integration-seeking X-Men under professor Xavier. Third episode in the big-screen adaptation of Stan Lee’s comic books, neatly wrapping up any loose ends left by the two previous instalments; as thoughtful and provocative as the predecesssors, but generally less somber, being more focused on the spectacular action setpieces and visual effects to the detriment of the characters' interaction.
