Consensus: Faithful to the comics and filled with action, X-Men brings a crowded slate of classic Marvel characters to the screen with a talented ensemble cast and surprisingly sharp narrative focus.

The deft way that Singer and company have transferred the action comics to the big screen reps one of the best efforts since Superman II.

X-Men plays like a so-so middle chapter of an epic series rather than a fitting kickoff.

Globe and Mail

All these characters with their odd powers are inherently absurd and they throw a barrel of wrenches into the machinery of a coherent narrative.

A rarity, a comic-book movie with a satisfying cinematic design and protagonists you want to watch.

Of course, the wide-open ending practically shrieks "sequel," so rest assured this is only the beginning of a new super-franchise. Here's hoping Joel Schumacher doesn't get his hands on it.
