This first movie about the X MEN is my favorite of all the trilogy, and the only one I was really excited to watch and I really liked of them all. There is not a better Wolverine then Hugh Jackman, and I cannot imagine Dougray Scott , who was the first choice to play Logan, in Hugh’s place. The 2000 movie with an all-star cast (namely, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, Halle Berry) started off a movie revolution, reinventing the X-Men franchise as we knew it forever. This is the one that influenced so many superhero films like Spider-Man 1 and 2, Iron Man 1 and 3, and Captain America. Thank you very much, Bryan Singer. X-Men is one of Marvel’s oldest superhero teams, launched in the early 1960’s. A comic interpretation of a ethnic or racial group that is met with bigotry, hatred and intolerance, X-Men continued Marvel’s tradition of featuring heroes that were decidedly more down to earth than their DC Comics brethren.
