X-Men: The Last Stand (review)

as promised .... my review of X-Men: The Last Stand in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

"Here's the nickel review: Ratner, who directed the "Rush Hour" films and "The Family Man," among other slick Hollywood efforts, has turned in a fast-moving superhero adventure that's long on killer special effects, if short on offering characters that viewers might care about."

How'd it do? Smashing, according to Variety.
"X-Men: The Last Stand" used Wolverine's claws this weekend to slice through plenty of domestic box office records. Fox's superhero sequel grossed an astounding $120.1 million over four days. "X-Men" beat the previous Memorial Day weekend record -- $96 million for the official second weekend of "Shrek 2" in 2004 -- in just three days."
