When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
When a cure is created, which apparently can turn any mutant into a normal human being, there is outrage amongst the mutant community. Whilst some mutants do like the idea of a cure, including Rogue, many mutants find that there shouldn't be a cure. Magneto, who still believes a war is coming, recruits a large team of mutants to take down Warren Worthington II and his cure. Might seem easy for the X-Men to stop, but Magneto has a big advantage, which Wolverine doesn't have. Jean Grey has returned, and joined with Magneto. The Phoenix has woken within her, which has the ability to destroy anything in her way, even if that 'anything' is a X-Men. Written by
For the opening flashback, Visual Effects Experts created a special program that enabled "digital skin-grafting": with the use of old photos of Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen, complex keyframing (dissolving an image into another image, for example, older actors into younger-looking versions) was applied to the scene to make them appear twenty years younger.

I still don't know why *I'm* here. Couldn't you just make them say yes?
Prof. Charles Xavier:
Yes, I could, but it's not my way. And I would expect you, of all people would understand my feelings about the misuse of power.
Ah, "power corrupts" and all that. Yes, I know, Charles. When are you going to stop lecturing me?
Prof. Charles Xavier:
When you start listening. And you're here because I need you.

Ratner has taken the challenge to direct this new edition of the X-Men Franchise and has officially hit a home-run. Visually amazing, great plot twists, incredible fight scenes, and a final touch of humor. If you are a a Marvel fan or just a fan of the movies, then you will not be upset with X3. I could't turn away from the screen and I found myself hoping that it wouldn't end. I recommend to anyone remotely interested, go and see this flick. However I would be wary of taking the kids, this is rated PG-13 for a reason. Also a small tip, stay past the credits. I give X-Men 3: the final stand a well-earned 10 out of 10.
