X-Men: The Last Stand

The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Satur­day, seven, 9.45pm, M (2006)

The third in the Mar­vel Comics fran­chise sees the long-time stand-off be­twe en Xavier (Patrick Stew­art) and Mag­neto (Ian McK­ellen) boil into a full-scale war over a new “cure” for mu­tant be­ings. Bryan Singer, who was be­hind the first two films, signed off from the series, mak­ing way for an im­pres­sive Brett Rat­ner (Red Dragon). The ir­re­press­ible Hugh Jack­man (pic­tured) once again owns the screen as Wolver­ine, and Famke Janssen re­turns as Jean Grey, who had sup­pos­edly di ed in X2. The stel­lar en­sem­ble cast also in­cludes Halle Berry, James Mars­den, Re­becca Romijn and Anna Paquin. More ac­tion than ever and a break­neck pace bring the tril­ogy to a thrilling close.
