Something I first got wind of seventeen years ago, when I was a rabid fan of the comic. Apparently it took twenty years all told to finally get this thing onto the big screen. My criteria for judging it: would my fifteen-year-old, X-Men-loving self have liked it? Yes.

musicaljon sez, "Nothing is really resolved, and there's obvious room for a sequel." Ah, but this is where the filmmakers were right on the money regarding their source material - nothing is ever really resolved in comic books either, and the next issue is only a month away.
