Batman : You are the walking definition of “loose cannon”, Harley. For all I know, you might decide at the last minute that Ivy’s plan doesn’t sound so cockeyed after all,because the wind changed direction. Or because it’s Thursday.

ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –

 

 

1) James Mangold teams up with Hugh Jackman & 20th Century Fox to make the best X-Men movie and perhaps one of the best superhero movie ever made.This joins the ranks of The Dark Knight, Spiderman 2 and Ironman.
2) The emotional factor is too high. Old and feeble Prof. Xavier counting his last days in a dilapidated water tank with an old rotting Wolverine in a dystopian X-Men universe.The final scene will leave true fans teary eyed.
3) Johnny Cash factor : From the trailer to the end credit, his influence is huge.
4) The Rated-R fast paced fight sequences (especially with X-24) are lesson for all movie film-makers.

 

 

Cons –
