Actually, to be technical about it, it’s probably the best super hero move ever made (X2, I mean).
The nightcrawler scene alone is one of the best special effects shows ever.
So… if you combine those awesome effects with a good plot written by a good screenwriter, one of the best directors around (Bryan Singer), and a sweet cast (Ian McKellen is gay too… that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. The majority of the cast acts well), and you have a ‘good’ movie. it really can’t be argued.
Just because you liked Kill Bill more and you’re hopelessly committed to defending Quentin (hey, I am too), doesn’t mean you should just go around and criticize movies like that.
