10. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Well… This one is pretty obvious. Even if they hadn’t screwed up Deadpool, this movie would still suck. The screenplay was bad, the cgi looked unfinished, and why the hell was Will.I.Am in this!? Um… At least Hugh Jackman was pretty good in it.
9. X-Men: The Last Stand
“I’m the Juggernaut, Bitch!” I have to say, I don’t HATE this movie as much as most do. The cast mostly does a good job and there are some cool ideas, but Director Brett Ratner left out the depth of the first two, making everything feel kind of hollow, and much of the dialogue is really lame and forced. Hopefully Fox can finally get the Dark Phoenix Saga right with X-Men: Supernova.
8. X-Men: Apocalypse
This was pretty disappointing for me. I was really looking forward to it and it was just kinda “Meh.” The Magneto stuff was great, but the plot was a mess and Apocalypse was a pretty weak villain. Also, the subplot with Stryker felt shoehorned in so there could be a Wolverine cameo.
7. The Wolverine
I like this movie. It has slow moments and the third act is a jarring change in tone, but the action is really well done and the Japan setting is cool. Not the most memorable X-Men movie, but overall very entertaining and a little underrated.
The one that started it all. The very first of the franchise is a very enjoyable and groundbreaking comic book movie that does a great job at making you care about its characters. I do think that it’s a little dated, but overall it’s still a good movie.
Crass, violent, and self-aware, Deadpool is a comic book movie that is truly faithful to its source material. (Unlike the last on screen appearance of Deadpool) But you don’t even need to be a fan to love this movie, thanks to its hilarious script and Ryan Reynolds’ performance as the Merc with a Mouth.
4. X-Men: First Class
Easily the coolest, most stylish X-Men Movie, Matthew Vaughn does an excellent job as the director, as do James Mcavoy and Michael Fassbender as stars. Plus, it has Bacon, which makes everything better. Kevin Bacon that is!
3. X2: X-Men United
Bigger and better than the first, X2 is a great sequel. The action is fun, the characters are well developed, and the plot is engaging. The ending still gets me excited for X-Men 3, until I remember how that movie turned out.
2. X-Men: Days of Future Past
One of the most entertaining comic book movies for me. The time travel aspect is really cool and the visuals are impressive, but most importantly, there’s depth and humanity in its characters.
The newest X-Men film is also the best. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart give the best performances of their careers, Dafne Keen is fantastic as X-23, and James Mangold directs magnificently. A Truly Emotional and thrilling cinematic experience.
