X-Men: The Last Stand
Warning! Achtung! Spoilers present!
I’d really like to say that this movie was good. I really wanted to like it. I wanted to say that this was a great way to end the trilogy – a nice strong ending.

This was the Godfather pt.III of the series and we can only hope for better in the spin-off movies.
