In the near future, "mutants" are the next link in the chain of evolution. Each are born with a genetic mutation that manifests into extraordinary powers. Under the tutelage of Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), the world's most powerful telepath, these "gifted" students have learned to control and direct their respective powers for the greater good of mankind. But when the Professor's former colleague and friend, Erik Lehnsherr a.k.a. Magneto (Ian McKellen) wages war against them and society, Xavier brings together a special group of mutants called "X-Men" to protect the world that fears them.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It sucks that this choppily edited film appears rushed and incoherent in ways that cheat the story of its human resonance and the stunts of their anticipated pow.
Fresh: A distinctively absorbing entertainment, offering just enough popcorn thrills for mass audiences and just enough chewiness for hardcore sci-fi fans.
Fresh: It ain't saying much but, when it comes to stoopid fun, X-Men could be the summer movie to beat.
Fresh: The most beautiful, strange, and exciting comic-book movie since the original Batman.
I think this is a good superhero movie. What I don't understand is why all the good movies are only available for rent!?
I really like all the X-men movies. I actually like a lot of the movies that are available on itunes. But (I know I'm not the only one saying this) all the movies should be available to rent or buy. All the good movies are only available to rent. By now I would have already bought Super Troopers and Dodgeball, but I'm not going to rent them.
i think they are taking advantage of renting movie im getting tired of it i was extremely excited when i saw the x-men cover once i pressed it guess what i saw the rent movie i was P***** p.s. NOW THEY ARE CENSORING REVIEWS j.k.
