Movie Review: The Last Stand

X-Men The Last Stand is effing awesome.

Here’s the synopsis:

The X-Men, mutant heroes sworn to defend a world that hates and fears them, are back! This time, with the help of new recruits The Beast and Angel, they must face evolution itself in the form of their former teammate, Jean Grey. Possessed with the cosmic power of the Dark Phoenix, the resurrected Jean Grey has become a danger to herself, her mutant comrades, and the entire planet. To stave off this imminent threat to humanity, a potential cure is discovered and processed to treat -- and ultimately eliminate -- genetic mutations, once and for all. Now, as the battle lines are drawn, the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, must contend with both Jean Grey's world-consuming powers, as well as the malevolent Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.

Full of awesome special effects, shocking deaths, destruction of long standing characters, love and love lost, this movie is a must see. I was looking forward to this movie, but I was in no way prepared for just how good it actually was. Also, the DVD comes with three, that’s right three alternate endings and a ton of deleted scenes.

Rent it, own it, steal it, whatever just watch this movie.

Rating: 5 Star.

James! Welcome back from the land of the Missing. I thought we might have to send Wolverine out to find you!
