“X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006)

IMDb

zero content, worse effect

it’s a sad thing when a franchise like this scrambles the foundations of the comic mythology to the point of making it unrecognizable in its general elements. I feel comfortable writing about this because i never followed the comics, my contact with x-men always came from TV animated series, or the films.

The x-men were based on a basic metaphor of being different. because you have a different characteristic, that doesn’t mean it is bad. You have to learn who you are, and live with it. Ultimately, we’re all mutants, who just have to acknowledge who we are. Understand our “difference”, and our weaknesses, and explore them. So, the ordinary human being in the series, is the guy who normally won’t cope with the difference. They simply won’t understand it. That’s where the mutant vs human thing comes up. And of course, mutant vs mutant, because some mutants won’t understand and deal with rejection. Along the way, we’d get lots of effect, different characteristics, wings, adamantium, weather controlling powers, psychic mutants, magnetic ones, etc etc. the possibilities were endless.

But here, everything is messed up. mutants manipulate mutants, and apparently every faction is “just” covering their own ass. There is no larger aspiration, no grander intentions. We are even taken away the mentor of the “ideology of difference” early at the beginning, Xavier. It’s turned into a simple action flick, emptied in its original cosmology content, rather poor in terms of visual sequences, but still so expensive that one can not see it as the honest work of some b series lovers. So, we’re left with nothing.

My opinion: 1/5
