Movie review from The Movie Snob
X-Men: The Last Stand (B-). Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart, Logan) and his merry band of mutants are, once again, the only thing standing between Magneto (Ian McKellan, Mr. Holmes) and a massive war between mutants and normal human beings. The flashpoint this time is a “cure” for mutancy being developed by the United States government. Some mutants view this development as a godsend, while others (like Magneto, naturally) view it as normal humanity’s latest attempt to eradicate the mutants forever. Complicating matters, it appears that Jean Grey (Famke Janssen, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), last seen getting killed at the end of X2, may not be quite dead yet. Of the new mutants introduced in this installment, Kelsey Grammer (Down Periscope, TV’s Frasier) does a nice job as Beast. I thought this was a decent action pic, although frankly it does have sort of a been-there/done-that feel to it. We’ll see if it does well enough to justify a fourth installment.
P.S. I did not stay through the end of the closing credits, but I have since learned that there is one final scene that rolls after the credits are finished. It’s not going to make me see the movie again, but I kind of wish I had stayed….
