After a nice weekend in Barcelona I sat down together with my better half to watch X-Men 3, which was finally released on DVD. My overall impression: another kick-ass superhero movie and a worthy series finale (I do hope they really stop). Some minor gripes: there were quite a few new characters (which is good) but they didn’t get enough time to build into full-fledged personalities. Most notably Archangel. I also felt the movie started to buckle under the weight of the huge epic action sequences by the end. I prefer smaller scale battles like we had in the first two movies, where you can clearly see the individual mutants use their powers (a huge part of the fun of these kinds of movies). All in all: recommended.
