FRI­DAY X-MEN: THE LAST STAND

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, TDT ★★★

A rein­vig­o­rat­ing re­turn to form for the fran­chise af­ter the sec­ond-episode slug­gish­ness of X2. This time around, Pro­fes­sor Xavier (Pa­trick Ste­wart) and his School for the Gifted are com­ing to grips with a back-from-the-dead Jean Grey (Famke Janssen), while sworn foe Mag­neto (Ian McKellen) and his Broth­er­hood are up in arms over a sup­posed “cure’’ for their ge­netic supremacy. Hardly the most mem­o­rable film of 2006, but fe­ro­cious fun while it lasts. Co-stars Hugh Jack­man, Halle Berry and Kelsey Gram­mer.
