Response to Original message
2. I thought the end was also quite inconsistent
with the message. it DID stay somewhat true to the xmen's role in the comics which was basically to defend humanity, right or wrong against mutants that look to conquer mankind instead of live in harmony with them. so it wasn't so much the cure they were defending but humanity so that hopefully they'll see that not all mutants are evil. that was the essence of xavier's dream in the comics anyway. ok, yes I'm a scif/comic/fantasy geek in his mid 30's. probably shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who reads my posts lol. anyhoo wolverine kicked ass and i got to see halle berry in leather without having to lower myself to renting "Catwoman" so it was worth the 8 bucks. ;)
