We watched "X-Men 3: The Last Stand" [When scientists develop a miracle drug to treat unwanted mutations, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and his heroic band of X-Men must battle a group of mutants known as the Brotherhood, led by Xavier's former ally (Ian McKellen). Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen, Anna Paquin, Rebecca Romijn and James Marsden reprise their roles from the first two films, with the addition of new recruits Kelsey Grammer and Ben Foster.] This is an exciting movie with excellent acting and incredible special effects. The story is very sad at several points, and X-Men fans may find themselves wet-eyed. It is a great movie, and I highly recommend it.
