X-Men: The Last Stand

X-Men: The Last Stand is a perfect example of a movie that juggles too many plots and characters. Instead of following both Jean Grey's transformation into Dark Phoenix and the creation of a mutant "cure," the third X-Men entry should have dedicated full attention to just one of these narratives. Even if that had been the case, that may not have been enough to shift The Last Stand from a mere action-fest to something compelling. The treatment of certain fan favorite characters (I'm looking at you, Cyclops and Juggernaut) certainly didn't help matters. The Last Stand did have a few bright spots, like Kelsey Grammer's Beast, but overall, it was an underwhelming conclusion to the original X-Men trilogy, making us all the more glad the series didn't end with that.
