Very violent, gripping sequel has positive messages and a bit of swearing

This was a really great ending to the first two X-Men movies! An emotionally strong movie with lots of violence, but good messages and some diverse representations. The moral of the movie is positive, but can be harsh, with heroism, love and sacrifice, but in a not-so-nice way. The role models are worse than the first two movies, with a character sacrificing another character's life, and one character going mentally insane. Mentions of cold-blooded child murder are present, however nothing more than mentioned. Violence is much stronger than in the first two movies, with one character wiping out dozens of people in a brutal way, arsenal is committed, and lots of fire, ice and destruction, but nothing a tween can't handle. Sex isn't as big of a subject as in the first two, there is one scene where Jean and Wolverine kiss passionately on top of each other, but nothing very intense. Swearing is not very present, with the word b--ch coming up a few times. Drinking, drugs & smoking isn't present at all, but the movie revolves around a cure for the mutant gene which could give a bit of a drug-vibe. Diverse representations make an appearance for the first time in an X-Men movie, with what seemingly seems like a transgender man and some interracial mutants. Overall a great movie, definitely four stars!

3rd installment has mixed feelings

X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) rsanchez When a "cure" is created, which apparently can turn any mutant into a "normal" human being, there is outrage amongst the mutant community. While some mutants do like the idea of a "cure", including Rogue, many mutants find that there shouldn't be a "cure". Magneto, who still believes a war is coming, recruits a large team of mutants to take down Warren Worthington II and his "cure". Might seem easy for the X-Men to stop, but Magneto has a big advantage, which Wolverine doesn't have. Jean Grey has returned, and joined with Magneto. The Dark Phoenix has woken within her, which has the ability to destroy anything in her way, even if that "anything" is an X-Man

Mildly enjoyable finale is best for older kids

Parents need to know that X-Men: The Last Stand is the third and final instalment in the X-Men film trilogy. The movie follows the X-Men trying to build alliances to fight against the villainous Magneto and also to help fellow X-Man Jean Grey from being fully enveloped by the Dark Phoenix force. Sounds great, right? But no, this movie was only fine, it had much too many characters and loose plot ends that were never tied up. A convoluted storyline, and this time around the actors don't seem as interested in the film. As for iffy, stuff expect some moderate action violence ansd swearing include hell, damn and s--t

The weakest X-Men movie out of the first three.

Disappointing, compared to how good the other ones were. I was, however, stirred (not shaken XD) by Wolverine’s decision to kill [SPOILER]. “Grow those back” was also an enjoyable moment. Cinematography/Visuals: 3/5 Special Effects: 3/5 Acting: 3/5 Dialogue: 2/5 World-Building: 3/5 Humorous Moments: 3/5 Emotional Moments: 4/5 Soundtrack: 3/5

X Men The Last Stand is a thrilling conclusion to the original trilogy. Like the others, there's a lot of "comic book violence." There's very little blood, but it is still intense. There is brief swearing, and a couple sexual scenes (kissing, but no clothes are taken off). Overall this is a great movie!

An unneccessary scene!

The movie is great! But there is an unneccessary scene!!! Jean Grey and Logan kiss themselves a lot in a "bed", with her legs on his body. Is just jump the scene, is complitely unneccessary!

Lesser X-Men film is still enjoyable, but a step down from the first two.

I watched the X-Men movies before a few months ago, and I remember really liking X-Men: The Last Stand. But after coming back to it, it’s not too great. Sure, it’s not bad, but after the excitement I got out of X-Men and X2: X-Men United the second time, this one is dull in comparison. And I wanna talk about the reason I think it’s weaker, so strap in. First off, the acting. It’s not horrible by any means, but compared to the performances the cast gave in the first two to the performance they gave in here, it’s just dull. The characters felt emotional in the first two, but here, they just feel stiff and hard, like they weren’t humans. Next is the story. Now, the story is great. The people finding a cure for Mutants and the Mutants discriminating against it, while the main characters have to stop Jean Grey from unleashing her power onto the world is really clever, and may have the best storyline in the first three X-Men movies. But the story felt rushed, like Brett Ratner wasn’t giving the story enough time to become a fun story. Educational Value: 1/5. Intended to entertain rather than to educate, but there’s some solid lessons about courage, embracing who you are and doing the right thing. Positive Messages: 2/5. Some strong messages about teamwork, embracing who you are and doing the right thing. Positive Role Models: 2/5. Most of the characters promote mixed messages. Wolverine spends most of the movie after Magneto, but he does promote some good lessons about caring for others and courage. Charles Xavier is still a smart and resourceful man who does his very best to keep mutants safe. (Possible spoiler: Most of the main characters are loyal and courageous, but some people leave the X-Men.) Violence: 3/5. Since the movie ties into the Phoenix saga, be prepared for mountains of action. There’s lots of destruction, explosions and combat. Wolverine cuts his way through villains with no mercy, involving intense but not bloody or gory deaths. In a simulation, Wolverine and the X-Men must fight a giant robot, leading to Wolverine decapitating it. Jean Grey slowly turns into the Dark Phoenix, and she attacks people in her way. (Spoiler Alert: Some key characters are killed or de-powered, which may upset people who are fond of those characters.) Sex: 3/5. Near the beginning of the movie, Cyclops and Jean kiss. Later, Logan and Jean make-out, resulting in the two removing their jackets. Jean also un-does Logan’s pants in the next scene. Mystique walks around naked, but her blue, scaly skin cover her private parts. There is one scene of Mystique without her blue skin, but she’s curled up, so no private parts are shown. Language: 3/5. Infrequent uses of “s**t”, “a**”, “b**ch”, “hell” and “damn”. Consumerism: 3/5. Some product placement. Drinking, Drugs & Smoking: 2/5. Wolverine is still a drinker and a smoker, and there are some scenes of him drinking and smoking. Overall, X-Men: The Last Stand is still an enjoyable movie, but fans of the first two will probably be disappointed.
