The X-Men are really cool and over the last few years, I’ve begun to actually get involved in the story of these characters. Today, I’m going to share my ranking of the X-Men movies I’ve seen so far.
5. X-Men: First Class
I’ve seen enough of this movie to know it is really bad. The CGI is so horrible I thought it was made in 2009. Not 2011! The prosthetics for Mystique and Beast are atrocious compared to the sequels and Kevin Bacon does not make a convincing villain.
4. X-Men: Dark Phoenix
The acting was meh. The storyline was okay. But the action was pretty good. This isn’t as bad as people say it is.
I saw this movie for the first time last night and while I didn’t see the whole movie I saw enough to understand why so many X-Men movies have been made following this film. These characters are awesome and this is the classic cast who brought the characters to life; Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, etc.
2. X-Men: Days of Future Past
I saw this movie in the movie theater with my father and sister. The first time I watched this film I enjoyed it. The second time, I still enjoyed it, just not as much. However, it is undoubtedly one of the better X-Men movies, for sure.
If you ever wished for an austere, brutally violent depiction of a Wolverine movie this is it. It was the first superhero movie nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and deservedly so. It’s pretty good…if you can get by all of the blood and the extreme violence.
