X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Frank's take)
02/05/2009. Talented Australian song-and-dance man Hugh Jackman scored big when signing on to assume the role of the clawed, hairy mutant breakout star of the X-Men film franchise, says Frank. Naturally, Jackman embodied the angst-ridden Wolverine with a distinctive fierceness that satisfied the most ardent fan of the Marvel comic book character.
X-Men The Movie
01/08/2000. One of my most cherished possessions to this day remains the NM (Near Mint) copy of X-Men #4, for which I overpaid about a decade ago (according to my dad), but which today, makes me look like a friggin' financial genius! I love comic books.
X-Men: First Class (Mark's take)
01/07/2011. The fifth "X-Men" film is an origin story for the X-Men. It is a secret history of super-mutants becoming a powerful force from 1944 and the Holocaust to 1962 and the Cuban Missile Crisis. That crisis, we learn, was actually orchestrated by opposing forces of mutants.
X-Men: The Last Stand (Mark's Take)
01/07/2006. In this film Mark discovers that The X-Men face off against the Brotherhood of Mutants in a fracas over a government-sponsored cure for mutant-ness. Are mutants going to savour their special unique natures or are they going to try to be like the "normal" population. It could be an intriguing idea, but the film does not develop the issue in any detail. And this third instalment in the series does not stand well on its own as a film. Viewers who, like me, have only passing knowledge of the X-Men will find that they may be at rather a disadvantage.
XXX: State of the Union: Frank's Take
01/06/2005. In Rob Cohen's numbing hit 2002 action-packed spy thriller xXx, muscle-bound misfit Vin Diesel played an extreme sports athlete turned risk-taking secret agent named Xander Cage. Naturally Diesel's trademark monosyllabic persona and the excitable recklessness of that movie's aimless mayhem helped turn this visually boisterous actioner into a hyperactive sensation.
