More Info:
  • Cody Clark

    The best kind of summer blockbuster -- the kind that makes you immediately crave a sequel.

    Mr. Showbiz Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The film's strength and its entertainment lie in John Myhre's production design, its generally appealing cast...and, perhaps most importantly, a canny degree of self-parody.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Jeff Giles

    For diehard fans, X-Men is full of in jokes and sly references -- For everybody else, there's the thrill of the unknown.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It's a rich, impressive comic-book fantasy -- easily the summer's best "blockbuster."

    Slate Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Balances brains, brawn and heart in ideal proportions. The actors - some first-rate, all enjoyable - never get overshadowed by the special effects, which dazzle us without gory excess.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • J. Rentilly

    One of this year's most dazzling entertainments, not to mention one of the best comic-book movies ever made.

    TNT RoughCut Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Singer deftly crafts a sleek, unusually tight film that balances comic-book adventure, pulp opera and the fear of being different.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A distinctively absorbing entertainment, offering just enough popcorn thrills for mass audiences and just enough chewiness for hardcore sci-fi fans.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    When it comes to stoopid fun, X-Men could be the summer movie to beat.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    While X-Men doesn't take your breath away wire-to-wire the way "The Matrix" did, it's an accomplished piece of work with considerable pulp watchability to it.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Exciting mainly because anything can happen and does, the movie drags a bit as it approaches a climax set atop the Statue of Liberty.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The most enjoyable piece of pop fantasy of the summer; sleek, elegant, exciting and wildly, outrageously imaginative.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    A solid action story with inventive battles (one on the Statue of Liberty) and satisfyingly gooey special effects.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    Spectacular special effects and sets.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Doesn't match up against the new millennium martial artistry of "The Matrix," nor do the special effects - but he knows how to establish characters and relationships.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Bob Graham

    This feast of fantasy is worth it.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    X-Men flies to the rescue with superheroes who have real substance.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Loaded with fine performances, traffics in audacious images and generally comports itself with a great deal more grace and gravitas than most movies with roots in fantastic themes.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Robert Horton

    Nearly the perfect balance between straight-faced pulp action and amused wonder at the outlandish world of comic books.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    The film's greatest strength lies in its ability to view itself as a modern moral fable of sorts.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    I started out liking this movie, while waiting for something really interesting to happen. When nothing did, I still didn't dislike it; I assume the X-Men will further develop their personalities if there is a sequel.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A mixed bag with the promise of a better sequel.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    Recedes to a string of mere action exploits. These are proficiently executed but, for all their visual authority, not much more than routine.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Steve Simels

    Stylish, exciting and an occasionally poignant sci-fi adventure spectacle.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Plays like a so-so middle chapter of an epic series rather than a fitting kickoff.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The mood is awfully dark for an escapist fantasy, though, and the high-tech mayhem gets repetitious.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Andy Seiler

    Missing are well-choreographed action scenes, likable characters and involving plot twists.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    When the film version isn't assaulting you with gizmos, it's an awkward, depersonalized piece of hackwork.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    A very odd cinematic creature.

    Film.com Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Clumsy when it should be light on its feet, the movie takes itself even more seriously than the comic book and its fans do, which is a superheroic achievement.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Superhero comic book movie with a script so feeble it might have been written with crayons.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    An ambitious, frustrating drag.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    Isn't juvenile, it isn't even infantile. It's prenatal!
