I liked the movie much better than the last two entries into this series. LAst Stand and Wolverine were quite bad. Last Stand more so. Wolverine suffered most from what appeared to be unfinished special effects, specially noticeable in the bathroom scene.
But last stand was just very disjointed and incoherent in its story telling, and for no apparent reason kills off 2 of the major players in the franchise, and moves on as if nothing has happened.
I agree that the producers for this one simply made this movie to be a prequel to X-Men and X-Men United, and ignored Last Stand and Wolverine all together. Which is a good thing, a very good thing.
I think it was a very good movie, not on par with Dark Knight but that's a tough act to follow so no worries there.
The movie manages to intertwine actual historical events with the X-Men mythos quite well. I had fun overall even if it was a 2 and half hour movie.
As far as Angel Salvatore, yes she has nothing to do with the Warren Worthington Angel from the comics who was part of the original team.
I did enjoy the small cameos by Rebecca Romjin and Hugh Jackman, by the way his remark was just awesome.
My only real gripe is with the Alex Summers character, seeing as he is supposed to be Scott's younger brother it kind of kills off that relationship completely. Perhaps they'll turn him into a hybrid of Alex and Corsair a.k.a Christopher Summers (their father). Considering the first X-Men movie was released in 2000 as was supposed to be set in the near future. Lets call the near future 2005 maybe 2010 tops, and making Cyclops about 25 or 30 years old puts him to be born around 1980, ample time for Alex Summers from the 1960's to get a girlfriend and procreate.
I... have the power!!!!
