X-Men: The Last Stand

X-Men: The Last Stand
The final in X-Men trilogy, based on the mutant characters from the most popular comic of the last couple of decades. And, it's the first not to be directed by Bryan Singer who's off doing the new Superman movie.

A mutant "cure" has been developed. Now our mutant friends have for the first time, a choice between retaining their uniqueness which alienates them, or giving up their powers and become normal, respectable human beings. The opposing viewpoints of rival leaders Charles Xavier (Stewart), who preaches tolerance, and Magneto (McKellen), who believes in the survival of the fittest, are put to the ultimate test - triggering the war to end all wars. Jean Grey's back from the dead also.
