X-Men (2000)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

X-Men (2000) I feel about this X-MEN movie pretty much the same as THE FANTASTIC FOUR movies. They're good but they're not great. It begins with a scene in a concentration camp during World War II, with a young boy separated from his parents. He begins to exhibit powers by bending the metal gates until one of the Nazis knocks him unconscious. Later on we learn this is Mageto's origin. Then the movie skips to present day. A teenaged Rogue (Anna Paquin of TRUEBLOOD) runs away from home, afraid of her powers, and hitches a ride up north where she runs into Wolverine, who fights for money. He agrees to give her a ride in his truck but they get in an accident set by Magneto's The Brotherhood of Mutants.

Then they are intercepted by Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey, who bring the two mutants back to Xavier's mutant school in Westchester, New York. Rogue hits it off with the other students, namely Bobby (Ice Man). Wolverine doesn't quite fit in, though he takes quite an interest in Jean Grey, much to Cyclop's irritation. The main focus of the movie is Magneto's plan to transform a group of politicians into mutants--but to do this it would exhaust all his power. So he kidnaps Rogue, believing that if she duplicates his power when she touches him that he can sacrifice her to power the device. The final battle takes place on Liberty Island, inside the Statue of Liberty. The mutants save the day, just in the nick of time. It ends with Wolverine leaving them, in search of clues to his own origin since Professor Xavier won't help him remember. Of course, this leads right into X-MEN 2: UNITED.
