Outcasts since birth, the X-Men are the next step of human evolution, each born with a unique genetic mutation that gives them extraordinary powers that they've learned to harness for the greater good.

With the hindsight of all the superhero films that have followed in the decades since, this is, dare I say it, an important film. It showed the way for all those huddled super-powered masses yearning to breathe free.
The first part of the movie lays out all the mutant characters. Although the X-Men was the title, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) was obviously the lead since he was always the favorite character in the comics. Then there’s Magneto’s plan and of course the big confrontation at the end.
The movie does a good job balancing out the characters, the story and the action. This made it a very good introduction to what would become a very successful franchise.
For the movie itself, five stars ALL THE WAY for the superhero movie that started it all! I've loved this movie since I saw it in the movie theater and will continue to love it for the rest of my life!
So in using the installer for the digital copy, I selected the iTunes version and was greeted with the message, "This application requires iTunes 7.6 or higher". 7.6? Whoa. That version was released in late 2008. I tried redeeming the code directing through iTunes with the DVD inserted as the device, but that resulted in an odd message, "This code is for an offer not yet available. It cannot be used yet."
So one last shot and contacted Fox Connect customer support, but after a few rounds of emails and only getting canned responses back, I gave up.
I gave this product 4/5 stars because it is still a great bundled value. Although it can't compare to today's films such as Avengers, it still holds a valued spot in my collection as one of the early pioneers in the revival of the super hero movie genre.
Update: Thanks C. Holzschuh! I called FOX digital copy @ (866) 520-6606 and they were able to issue me a new code that worked.
