It's complicated... I really like the directing, acting and writing but, there are issues with the way it's shot that I just can't deny. As much as I love the storytelling and the fantastic performance but, there are also certain scenes that didn't need to exist.
I am only giving this movie a 1 for the great cast, though I can't imagine what any of them were thinking. This movie was horrible
Fanciful, disturbing, and wildly original, it announces the arrival of a fresh, bold voice in American cinema.
The story-telling is good with flashbacks.The film is both funny and heartbreaking. You smile in a scene and get a soulcrushing revelation in the next.
The series' bigger fans seem to be unable to acknowledge that some don't mind the differences from the comics, and just think it's a good show that doesn't do it for them. Let me be clear, I like this series. I haven't watched it all, and that might sway me in some way. But I just can't get into it. The characters and stories are good, but not great. No spectacular arcs, but overall enjoyable and entertaining.I have an opinion regarding the dissimilarities with the comics: The series is so different that there isn't any reason to use the usual X-Men favourites, aside from money-making. Most audiences will be familiar with the names and faces, but the fans of the characters will find little to grab onto. What I'm saying is that the people behind the series should've built up the courage to just use different or even original characters. Although different interpretations of characters are welcome, there isn't much reason for it. I can also relate to those fans who are even the least bit tired of the lack of attention that this series receives due to the popularity of the '90s series (which is also great, but overrated in my opinion). I would check out Wolverine and the X-Men for a different interpretation that really works well.
X-Men as kids...a good idea I'd say. I'm really quite fond of the show, it comes every weekday and, though I'm a teenager, I usually watch it. To be fairly truthful, I do like shows about people with superpowers. Which is one reason I like the snow. I hear there are people complaining of the characters not being involved in enough of the original story arcs, maybe the reason I like it is because I don't know of any of these story lines (save maybe the whole Dark Phoenix thing) but I really don't think an adaptation of a comic book should be down put by some die-hard fans who can't stand the idea of every single detail from the original comic not being in every adaptation.
Xmen: Evolution rocks & definitely deserves more than a 6/10 ! its deserves a 20 ! Its an awesome show, trust me. & from someone like me who used to not like 'comic stuff' , i think this rocks :D The show's just full of everything the audience wants to watch ! I even heard from somewhere that they're wondering whether or not to make a 5th season, which is totally unacceptable. There should be no doubts ! The show is GREAT, even adults are watching it, its no longer a kid/teen thing alone ! Albeit there are DVDs sold, sadly in Singapore, there not, and i find that absolutely annoying because there are crazy fans here, one like me ! And besides watching it on cartoon network, we'll never get to watch our favourite episodes again. And i have no idea why am i writing this, but seriously, there should be no reason for Xmen: Evolution to stop or for people to rate it 6/10. However, its is your opinion though my opinion is that you are dumb.

I've seen the majority of the 1992 X-Men series of cartoons and I much prefer this version. Now, I'm in my 30's and have read the X-Men books for years. This includes the Ultimate X-Men, which X-Men Evolution bears more resemblance to than the original series. So I take exception to certain comments that this series is only for children of 10-12 years old. I liked the original series on Fox, but this one has different story lines showing the maturing of the mutant group.The animation is cleaner, character development actually occurs and most importantly of all - in X-Men Evolution, Storm doesn't make a speech every time she uses her powers!!! (This REALLY annoyed me in the Fox series!) In the Fox series Cyclops had had a personality by-pass and was seriously uninteresting and the X-Men Evolution has actually managed to give him some sort of interesting personality. So much so that he was one of my favourite characters.The stories in this series are all fresh, whereas the stories in the Fox series were just retreads of stories from the comics, where you knew the end result without watching the cartoon (occassionally there would be slight variations but not many).I would therefore recommend this series to anyone who like the X-Men and to remember this is the X-Men as teenagers in modern times.Out of 10 I would give this series 10, with the original series 7/10
