plot-wise, if you are a fan of the comics and are hoping the film will be true to them than you're probably going to be disappointed. it's not that the story is bad necessarily... just not good. one gets the feeling they didn't know exactly where they wanted to go with it or what they wanted to say and everything they did say was already done to satisfaction in the previous movies. however, to be fair, coming up with a finale to an x-men series, that works, is extraordinarily difficult. considering the massive amounts of story arcs, characters, and the fact that the actual story isn't going to end anytime soon... this isn't the worst job they could have done. overall, while it doesn't work remarkably well, it's a decent film.
on the other hand, where this film really distinguishes itself (and indeed the whole trilogy for the most part) is it's casting choices. half the appeal of a comic book adaptation is seeing your favorite characters portrayed in a live-action presentation and, in this, the film succeeds remarkably. Kelsey Grammer is wonderful and very fitting as The Beast, Vinnie Jones does a smashing job as the Juggernaut, and whoever came up with casting Ellen Page as Kitty Pride should be given a medal. her performance is probably one of the only really outstanding things about this film. of course the other actors from the previous films do great jobs too and seem to really want to bring their characters to life (especially Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart). unfortunately, the script and story just doesn't give them much to work with.
basically, as long as you aren't looking for anything amazingly faithful to the original idea and come expecting a hollywood interpretation, it's a fine film. not mind-blowing or astonishing but not a disaster either.
