X-Men: The Last Stand
X-Men: The Last Stand (also known colloquially as X-Men 3 or X3) is a 2006 superhero film and the third in the X-Men series. Director Brett Ratner took over when Bryan Singer dropped out to direct Superman Returns. The Last Stand revolves around a "mutant cure" that causes serious repercussions among mutants and humans, and on the mysterious resurrection of Jean Grey. The film is loosely based on two X-Men comic book story arcs: writer Chris Claremont's and artist John Byrne's "The Dark Phoenix Saga" and writer Joss Whedon's and artist John Cassaday's six-issue "Gifted" arc. Following Singer's departure, the director's position was offered to Darren Aronofsky, Alex Proyas, Joss Whedon and Zack Snyder.

Violence is the most extreme part of this movie. I would put this at not quite an R. Blood is very limited, and the action is spread out of the movie. The movie does cover the conflict that results from the build-up from the previous two movies. I enjoyed this movie and will watch it again. There is one part where Mystic looses her powers and shows her laying naked (no nudity). The only part that could be risky.June 9th, 2011 · Details
This movie was a disappointment on so many levels, but mostly with the story. I'm sorry but this movie is a High 'B' because of how lousy the plot and story were. It was a movie trying to be epic but not quite achieving it. It had great affects but lousy acting.
I give it a low R rating for two reasons. The violence in a few parts was a little more than a typical PG-13 would be. The final scene where Jean is (Spoiler) killed by Wolverine was particularly disturbing.
The other reason is that Shape shifter. She is just too Risque for a PG-13. On top of this, there is a few bathroom humor jokes that were completely unnecessary. Like so many other third movies in a trilogy, this one falls short, waaaaaaaay short of the mark. Don't waste your time on this one.May 2nd, 2011 · Details
