THE trilogy of the Marvel comic animation wont disappoint those seeking action and special effects in the latest installment of X-Men 3: The Last Stand. Closely following from the second X-Men film, X3 introduces audiences with a flashback of the first encounter between a young Jean Grey, Xavier and Magneto about 20 years ago. To date the X-Men team are still mourning the loss of Dr Jean Grey (FamkeJanssen)whowasapparently obliterated in a freak flash flood in a previous battle against the power greedy Magneto (Sir Ian McKellen). But (as there always is with a sequel) Dr Grey comes back from the dead. It turns out Dr Greys mutant gift of telekinetic powers, readingminds and the ability to lift objects with her mind, has a dark side. On a bad day she switches onher evil alter ego whichwreakshavoc andkills people. This makes for an interesting plot. Meanwhile Storm (Halle Berry) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) are helping the Professor (Patrick Stewart) teach young mutants at the school for the gifted. The government has finally captured bad-girl favourite Blue Mystique (Rebecca Romijn) hoping to lure Magneto and behind the back of the Secretary forMutant Affairs, Dr Hank McCoy aka Beast (a big, blue and hairy Kelsey Grammer) cunningly concocts a cure, which suppresses the mutant gene permanently. Whilenon-mutants think the cure is the best thing since sliced-bread, mutants are outraged and insulted and Magneto plays on this to rally together a mutant army. Magneto has plans to use the cure against other well-to-do mutants such as the elite X-Men team and kill a small boy whose role in the move this reviewer was still quite unsure of. X3 director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour) can expect many X-Men fans to mutate with rage and turn into the likes of one of his characters for killing off some old-time favourites. But at the same time Ratner is given the thumbsup forall thequick witty one liners that he gives to Wolverine who is played fabulously by Hugh Jackman time and time again. While X-Men 3 may sound all a little too technical it isnt and is still an enjoyable action-packed flick. X-Men 3:TheLast Stand is now showing at the Alice Springs Cinemas.
