"Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning? [pause] The same thing that happens to everything else." - Storm, X-Men (2000)

Twentieth Century Fox, rated PG-13, 104 minutes.

Directed By: Bryan Singer

Cast:

Hugh Jackman - Logan / Wolverine

Patrick Stewart - Professor Charles Xavier

Famke Jansson - Jean Grey

Anna Paquin - Marie D'Ancanto / Rogue

Halle Berry - Ororo Munroe / Storm

Tyler Mane - Sabertooth

Rebecca Romijn - Mystique

Bruce Davison - Senator Kelly

Domestic Box Office Gross: $157,299,717

Synopsis: A group of people with special powers, mutants, under Professor Xavier try to stop an evil mutant mastermind, Magneto, who's trying to start a war with the humans.

Fact: Over 700 individual claws were used between Hugh Jackman and his 4 stunt doubles.

Trivia: Toad asks Storm "Don't you people ever die?" which is an inside joke because they have all died at one time or another in the comic books.

My Take: Before The Dark Knight came out I considered X-Men to be the best superhero movie to date, now it's second. I used this quote because, without a doubt, it's one of the worst movie quotes in the history of cinema and everybody can recite it! OK, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen had one worse with "Call me Ishmael." but this is really close. Great movie and if you liked the comic books as a kid than the movie is a slam dunk must.

      I would say that even if you weren't into the comic books the first X-Men delivers everything you would want from a super-hero movie.
