Rated NR

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Thriller
An all-star cast, featuring such great character actors as Bruce Davison (who played Willard in the original Willard), Brian Cox (the first actor ever to play Hannibal Lecter), Alan Cummings (who, in spite of having played The Great Gazoo in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas is really an excellent performer), Patrick Stewart (who played the bald Captain Kirk-type guy in that TV show about outer space) and Ian McKellen (who is best known for being the only cast member of the elf-drenched Lord of the Rings to be openly gay) overpowers this movie, which has too many parts to do any of them justice. The plot, about an attempt by the U.S. government to wipe out all of the super-powered mutants in the world, is certainly the basis for a workable superhero movie, and the effects and action sequences are really top-notch, but ultimately there’s too much plot, too many characters and not enough depth to make this movie entirely successful. Still, if you like seeing blue, super-powered naked people with guns, I can think of no better movie for you.
