X-Men was a great movie. I loved the movie and saw it numerous times in theaters - granted, being the X-Men didn't hurt at all but this quickly shot up as being one of my favorite movies of all time. Sure it could have done one or two things better (like getting rid of Storms awful line to Toad) but it just presented such a great story and did it with so many characters that it worked out great and everyone had a role in the movie. It seems very few movies (and not just comic ones) can get this down right and X-Men did it throughout the entire movie.
"Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."
