There have been so many bad comic book movies (the Mikey award for the worst is Batman and Robin, which not only had fucking Jim Carrey in it, but they decided Batgirl was Alfred's niece!) that I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. The results are in - X-Men is fantastic. Focusing mainly on Wolverine (which everyone likes most anyway) and Rogue, we still get to know the main group of heroes without any long drawn-out flashbacks. The action is cool and the effects are great. If you haven't read the comic, you'll miss very few inside jokes.
