    Ironically Daredevil and Hulk were released in theaters the following year.

  • Nathaniel Foga (4 days ago)

    Who else agrees that Alan Cumming as NightCrawler was the highlight of the film 😄👌

  • Mcgewgler Tims (7 hours ago)

    This particular version of this particular character jumpstarted puberty for me and it’s so cringeworthy lol

  • 8L00DY R3G1M3 (4 days ago)

    I think that the scene where Magneto escapes is actually pretty badass

  • randygelion (19 hours ago)

    It's almost elegant

    +Carstea Florentin she put an actual metal in his blood. The iron in blood was just a cheeky joke

  • freakboy186 (4 days ago)

    How can you claim that Pyro's change in allegiance isn't justified? Pyro clearly shows hostility towards humans in the opening scene at the museum and when he literally tells the police to fear him before he attacks them at Iceman's house. He's following along and keeping his head down while he's at the school, but he clearly doesn't agree with Xavier's ideology. So when Magneto tells him that he's a god and that his mutant identity is more important than his human identity, he finally feels validated ...

    +Vorile DeWise I have it queued up for later, but that's what i'm worried about he gets so hung up on pacing issues and gets so critical of minutiae he can't appreciate stylistic novelty until the end when he winds up forgiving all the problems and admits the movie still works... i love x2 and the idea behind jason's mutation... ripping the bandaid off later

  • Vorile DeWise (1 day ago)

    I'm halfway through and this review is really lacking, even for Doug. He brings up "plot holes", that aren't even holes at all, like Xavier appearantly should be reading every single human mind he comes across to avoid traps, Nightcrawler teleporting outside of a plane is the same as teleporting inside buildings (where if he teleports into something he fucking dies) Or complains about storytelling methods that are industry standards (going from fast action scene to slow scene is a problem Dou...

    THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING TO 12 YEAR OLD ME. and honestly i think its still holds up really well.

  • Arkrilix Art (4 days ago)

    The Nightcrawler attack scene is one of the best action sequences I've ever seen

  • Dauda András (1 day ago)

    +Arkrilix Art meh

  • Arkrilix Art (1 day ago)

    +Dauda András They were awesome as well. But I really liked the story line in Days of Future Past, like the stakes and the hunt for Mystique and such.

    "Xavier couldn't have lifted the plane from inside?"....No....no he couldn't have.

  • Alia (20 hours ago)

    Александр Михайлов In Jean's case I think it's more like Typhoid Mary. It's not herself, but someone her mind created taking over.

  • ranwolf76 (22 hours ago)

    +Scorch 215 it's part of the reason I stopped watching Cinemasins

  • alexisandraphaithe (4 days ago)

    No. Xavier could not have lifted the plane from inside.

  • Ocean Surgeon (1 day ago)

    He's got telekinesis in some comics so I don't blame his confusion

  • James Ayewale (3 days ago)

    He has had powerful telekinetic abilities in some comics.

  • Stefne H (4 days ago)

    Doug you love X-Men! Why would you think Xavier has telekinesis??? I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

  • dannyboi451 (14 hours ago)

    He doesn't have telekinesis he stops by using his mind to stop people to a halt

  • Beerbottles123 (1 day ago)

    His 1610 counter-part has minor telekinesis, he usually use it to lift his wheelchair up the stairs.

  • Aldo Vallier (4 days ago)

    Cyclops doesn't have any speed feats in any media, you want him to dodge a pointblank shot? I mean you usually reach a bit but that was a lunge.

    +d daveCyclops has betrayed the X-Men on various occasions throughout the comics.Cyclops has cheated on Jean several times throughout the comics.Cyclops has murdered a handful of people throughout the comics.Cyclops accepted The Pheonix into himself and attempted to kill Xavier in the comics.Cyclops was used as a prophet of sorts for a mutant rebellion in the comics.Cyclops is an arrogant prick.Yeah, Cyclops is an asshole. He's always been an asshole.
