MARVEL COMICS' X-MEN A SCI FI WINNER

Marvel comics lives! Adapted from the popular comic books, "X-Men" from all accounts does justice to the 1990's comic series.The X-Men are a group of genetic mutants with amazing abilities, organized by Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) to realize his dream of a world where humans and mutants can live in harmony.
But, wouldn't you know, it's not that easy. Lurking in the wings is evil Magneto, Mutant Master of Magnetism (Ian McKellen) with his own ideas about how folks should live. And into this confusing state of things we have two beguiling mutants, Rogue (Anna Pacquin) and her older, powerful companion Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).( Moviegoers will remember Pacquin from the unforgettably somber and moving role for which she won an Academy Award, in "The Piano.")
Rogue, a love-seeking teenager who is just becoming acquainted with her mutant powers, suffers an almost unbearable burden. She cannot touch a human because doing so would suck the life out of them. In her isolation, she clings to Wolverine and learns to trust him implicitly.
Rounding out Xavier's little band of merry mutants, among others, is Storm (Halle Berry) and Cyclops (James Marsden).
The movie has a twist, in that the X-Men are striving to protect the very humans who fear them from the brutal and nasty Magneto. Whatever will happen? Will Good triumph over Evil? Don't be silly.
The movie is directed by Bryan Singer.
It is rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence.
It is playing at Market Square East.
