Movie Review: "Astonishing X-Men: Gifted"

Taken from the critically lauded plot of the comic book series, Astonishing X-Men: Gifted doesn't feature your usual team of merry mutants.

Sure you've got Beast, Cyclops and Wolverine -- but unless you've been keeping up with the X-Men, you would probably be surprised to see Emma Frost (White Queen) and Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat) on the roster.

While this was a nice enough show (and very adult Marvel Knights fare), you can tell that it's part of a much larger story -- so that kind of limits its enjoyment as a standalone feature.

However, the interaction and banter between team members is priceless! (Thank you Joss Whedon.)

My final verdict is that it's still NICE TO WATCH!

QBF Rating: 3.5/5

PS: "Surprise" appearance by Colossus!

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
