X-Men III; The Last Stand
A "cure" for mutancy threatens to alter the course of history in this sequel to the two earlier X-Men films. For the first time, the mutants have a choice. They can either retain their uniqueness, though it isolates them, or give up their powers and become human. The opposing views are voiced by the mutant leaders Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart TV's "Star Trek: The Next Generation"), who preaches tolerance, and Magneto (Ian McKellen "Lord of the Rings"), who believes in the survival of the fittest.

The ultimate conflict begins when the crusading Warren Worthington Sr. (Michael Murphy "Manhattan") claims to have a pharmaceutical "cure" for their afflictions/attributes. Naturally this sets off a showdown between Xavier and Magneto which further alienates the mutant society and which could trigger a mutant civil war. Meanwhile, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman "Van Helsing"), is thrown for an emotional loop when the telepathic Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) emerges from what was believed to have been a watery grave with her powers intact. Also returning in this second X-Men sequel are Halle Berry ("Monster's Ball"), as Storm and Rebecca Romijn ("Rollerball") as Mystique, who are joined this time by Kelsey Grammer (TV's "Frasier"), as a hairy Blue Beast.

Director Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour") keeps things moving with lots of fast paced comic book action and spectacular special effects, but the script doesn't quite find the tone of the two earlier films, even though fans of the genre will still enjoy the rush.
