X-3. My honest opinion. (spoiler free)

Ok. So I saw the film last night and I've been processing it since then in my mind.

I've always been a comic fan and then the cartoons and movies so I tend to watch who's in the background of every scene to see if I can name them. I really didn't need to do that this time though because the director kept shoving the camera at them as if to say... 'look, look at the powers, look'.

As a fan I enjoyed the film, the effects are great and there are some really OMG moments.

As a critic the directing was a little off and the writing left much to be desired. Bits of conversation was stilted (although this could mean deleted scenes) and there were too many 'profound lines'. By this I mean, when a character has a moment of realisation and says something like 'May God help us'. Once or twice? Fine. Repeated instances of this? I begin to question the script.

Overall I enjoyed it and will be seeing it again and buying the DVD, but as an example of film-making the director should have a serious paycut... I know you have pretty/handome actors/actresses, but a round of close up reaction shots after every major event is not necessary.

Inner fan girl liked the effects, loved the darker storyline and is still somewhat in awe of the film.

Hmmmm this is quite long, maybe I should post a thread?

I think they just had the director or producer on CBN this morning, he was talking about how his faith influenced the film, maybe that had something to do with it. Also, I'm seeing it in theaters and probably buying it when it comes out.

Hey thanks. I've been going back and forth on whether to see it or wait...guess I will see it then as my inner fan girl is really excited...and may I just say Wolverine is sooo hot ( I have always thought so even when he was two dimensional)
