Synopsis

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.

  • 4 stars "Fourth X-MEN movie is one of the best. Great special effects and a clever storyline push the series to new levels of daring; only debit is Rebecca Romjin, who appears to have really let herself go in this installment. Even so, this rates a solid 4 out of 5."
