      This has to be the most cynical Nostalgic Critic has ever been, this review is NITPICK OVERLOAD, the problem he have aren’t big problems and can be easily defensible or don’t matter, usually when he’s reviewing a good we all like he’s at least funny but I laughed very few times and the rest of the time he’s just being a asshole for no reason. So in my opinion this the worst Nostalgia Critic review ever

    The best X-Men movie. It's still a terrible one.
    Seriously, most of what Doug says is right.

    - Green screens are too obvious. Overall, the fx were so cheap, even back then! Only the Nightcrawler scenes are worth a damn, and Wolverine vs DeathStrike.
    - The characters are all so flat! That's what Doug meant about Pyro: sure, his changing sides does not come out of nowhere in the movie. BUT it's not developed at all, so in the end, it's just "he wants to change side, so he does". No development _at all_ here. The same for the so-called romances, all so empty and out of place. The same for Iceman's family, the same for Striker, the same for DeathStrike, the same for everyone actually.
    - I'm disappointed Doug didn't mention how one-dimensional Lady DeathStrike is, _even_ compared to the rest. She has ONE important scene, a short one, the rest of the time she just stands there doing absolutely nothing. It's like Darth Maul, without Darth Maul's charisma. Terrible, terrible character.
    - Overall the film is so slow it barely tells anything. And what it tells is so unstructured...
    - Cyclops' return to normal off-screen... it's just ridiculous. That, plus the fact that his battle with Jean is what causes the climax.
    - I forgot the enemies' HQ was actually where Logan was looking for in the beginning of the movie. Man, that was SO stupid!

          I know it’s a cliché, but I actually think Magneto saying “You should of killed me when you had the chance!” Kinda works.
          Most villains say it as a taunt, but I feel like Magneto genuinely means it. For all their differences, he would rather die then betray his friend. He’s not taunting Xavier, he’s speaking out of guilt/remorse.

              Wait, Wolverine used one of his claws to start a car? Wouldn't that mean he had to keep his claw in the ignition the entire time he was driving? When you use a key to start on a vehicle the key has to remain in the ignition in order to keep it running so he was just sitting there with his hand stuck in that position the whole way or did he break part of his claw off... You know what? Whatever... I'm not exactly very knowledgeable about the X-Men or cars but I just thought the logic behind that scene was stupid and confusing.

                  I usually trust your judgement, it pretty much overlaps with mine and is usually quite fair. This is one of the only two times (the other being when you defended those unholy abominations that were the Spiderman movies with Andrew Garfield) where I think your personal taste got in the way of a fair review.
                  Clearly, you disliked the way they chose to go with this movie, i.e. dark, gritty, almost thriller-like. That's legit, but it shouldn't get in the way of an objective review.
                  I argue that there are few if any actual plot holes in this movie. There are a couple scenes that raise questions, but nothing that actually threatens suspension of disbelief on relevant plot points. Yeah, maybe Nightcrawler's mid-air rescue was far fetched... but come on, no relevant plot point hanged on that particular scene, and anyway, we know for a certainty that Nightcrawler *can* teleport without seeing his destination, he is just scared of doing so. It was just a scene someone thought was cool, it is hardly noted and quickly forgotten if you overall enjoyed the movie.
                  Jean's sacrifice... was it necessary? Ok, please, take note that the Marvel Universe's magic system (yes, mutant powers are basically magic) is very "soft". We are rarely given very precise details on the full range and potential and reach of their abilities. Maybe Jean needed closer contact with water in order to block such a huge mass *and* at the same time raising the plane in the air. Maybe Bobby's freexing powers weren't that strong either... But... seriously, should we be arguing about this? It's a frigging' superhero movie!
                  In parenthesis: I don't know whether mutants are persecuted outside of the USA too, but since they are an obvious metaphor for LGBTs... yeah, I guess in Saudi Arabia they'll be killed but the thousands after the events of the movie. But that's not the focus of this story; again, who cares?
                  And about the scenes with Xavier and Jason Stryker in the corridors... they are not supposed to be thrilling and exciting and full of action. They are supposed to be creepy and build tension. Also, it's not like controlling Xavier's mind is a piece of cake, Jason does that gradually by using his illusions. The movie lets us know how that works step by step. When I saw the movie I found those scenes very very creepy and tense.
                  Almost none of the criticisms raised in this review are more than simple nitpicking. Very disappointing. Ok, you liked the cartoon a lot.... this series was not like the cartoons. It took a different directions. You're free to hate it for that, but I think that if you know you can't be objective because you so disliked the very concept behind the movie, the safest choice is not to review it. There so many actual bad movies out there, no need to rage against a good one.

                            Sigh. Yet another guy who shows why indeed "everyone is a critic", or perhaps, how everyone can be a critic. FYI, calling yourself a critic doesn't mean you're right.

                                      "Animal Farm" is one of my favorite books as well. But "1984" takes the cake. EVERYONE should read "1984", and once you have, you will feel horrible but will also know exactly why I said you should read it.

BUT Phoenix can lift the plane.. definitely^^
