X-Men 1.5 Bryan Singer

X-Men 1.5 Bryan Singer
X-Men 1.5 acts as a warm-up for X-Men 2. It contains the original film loaded up with a second disc of featurettes, deleted scenes, and a sneak peek at the sequel in which director Bryan Singer drops hints and guides a tour through the Vancouver-based set. In a genre where the special effects seem dated in mere months, the visuals are still captivating. But what makes X-Men better than its competition is more focus on the social implications that being a mutant amongst the human race can create and how a group of "superheroes" save the lives of the people who have shunned them from society. With everyone from The Incredible Hulk to Spider-man getting the Hollywood treatment, the X-Men are definitely among the more complex big screen heroes. And with the long list of unused X-Men characters still up for grabs (we get to see a peak of Alan Cumming as Nightcrawler) the well won't be drying up anytime soon. Extras: four featurettes, deleted scenes, commentary with Bryan Singer, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart and more. (Fox)
