I'm of the opinion that if a movies good then it doesn't matter whether its a sequel a fresh original story a drama an action film or sci fi if its good its good.End of.
I also don't think you have to be a fan of the comic book. A film should stand up in its own right. While I was watching this film all I kept thinking was, is this the Bryan Singer that directed The Usual Suspects a film so full of suspense originality and pace that it kept you hooked till the final frame, it couldn't be.X-Men 3 is so bad it represents everything that is wrong with current movies.Bad script, no story and half arsed effects(asides from the floating bridge).Mr Singer must have been under pressure to deliver the third film because what we are left with is so dull and uninspiring I really didn't care what happened to any of the characters.As for a fourth film.Get real.
As good as the last two - take that comment whatever way you like! If you loved or hated the first 2, you will react the same. Compulsory watching for the fans. Some freshness in the story, so a better than average sequel.
Well worth it...

I've seen X-Men & X-Men 2 but couldn't really remember them so wasn't sure if I would pick the 3rd film up with what had happened previously. I couldn't have been more wrong, within a few minutes I'd remembered the previous films. This is definately not one of those sequels where the story is wearing thin. It is an easy film to watch and very entertaining. As with most sequels though it has been left open for a 4th!
