"With all of these knocks against the movie, it should be easy to tell people to stay away and save their ticket money, right? Well, it would be if not for one thing. Despite the rough effects, the underused talent, and plot holes that'll leave even the most experienced comic fan scratching his head, the fact remains that the movie is fun. Pure, unadulterated, geek filled, testosterone enhanced, popcorn movie fun. This isn't Citizen Kane, and it was never meant to be. It's an unapologetic action flick, with just enough tidbits of comic book goodness to keep fans' interest until the next flick in the X-Men franchise can make its way to the silver screen."
