Did you noticed that in the Marvel movies such as "Fantastic Four", "Spider-Man", "Ghost Rider" and others... they all seem to be true to the comics and cartoon versions, all except for "X-men"... which is so watered down from the comics or 90's cartoon version.
Why in the world are they making the X-men movies in such a conservative manner? None of the X-men characters wore their original comic-book super hero uniforms in these movies. The X-men all wore the same black outfits, and the super powers have little special effect compared to the other Marvel movies.
Instead of Rogue being an attractive looking adult female, she is now a disturbed teenaged girl... and her powers has no special effects, except for when the person she touches skin shows a lot of veins. But that's her mutant power, she can't fly, nor does she have super strength.
Wolverine lacks the aggressive attitude and short temper he had in the comics and 90's cartoon. Although I alwayed believed Chris Benoit would have been a better Wolverine in the X-men movies because he had the aggression, looked like Logan, and he's a Canadian just like Wolverine/Logan... they even nicknamed him the Rabid Wolverine in WCW (but with no relation to the X-men character.) But the possibility of that happening went down the drain a couple of weeks ago.
If you've seen the Marvel movies then you should understand my concern with the X-men films being to bland. These characters are supposed to be Mutants, and yet, they act like regular people. Why?
Storm in this film is petite, this character should be about 5' 11". Halle Berry was the wrong person for this role, but they gave her the part to attract her fans. The "Storm" character should have been played by Niaomi Campbell or someone of the height with stunning good looks.
Magneto looked like a grumpy old man, and his personality was boring. I've alwayed viewed Magneto as a man in his late 40s/early 50s with white hair likewise with Professor Xavier. But the actor who played Magneto looked to be in his late 60s/early 70s. Also what happened to "Juggernaut" being Xavier's half-brother? There's no doubt the movie was hastely put together, Juggernaut was suppose to be a massive size like The Hulk was. Oh, well.
There is a lot of things wrong with those X-men movies, but people still pay to see these movies, and having Marvel believe that they've done an excellent job when the movie sucked. Tim Burton would have been a better director because he's excellent with directing fantasy films. Just look at the first Batman film from 1989 in which Burton directed, maybe Marvel should have put him in charge in the Marvel movie's outcome.
My favorite Marvel stories was always the X-men, but the movies completely blow. They are making the X-men films so serious that it's like watching Star Trek.
