Bryan Singer – 2000.
Bryan Singer‘s X-Men is a comic book movie which really delivers the goods in a big, big way. A strong screenplay, good character development and a top-notch cast (Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen and others) help make X-Men a real cinematic treat.
Jackman is the standout and his performance as Wolverine is a real star-making turn. He might not have the stature of the famed Marvel comics character, but he more than makes up for any short comings with charisma and screen presence.
It’s a real shame that more blockbusters aren’t like X-Men – in a word, it’s X-cellent!
