The Last Stand
The sad fact is that the general public is burnt out on X-Men, especially with how poor the previous two films were. It's just a shame that this excellent film has to pay for the sins of its predecessors.
wasn't a poor film, it just killed off characters that were assumed by the audience to have impenetrable character shields, and was consequently demonized by a vocal minority.
I've not encountered a single person who liked The Last Stand
. I think the people who actually liked it were part of a quiet minority. Aside from killing off characters for no good reason, which is a legitimate complaint, the story was just complete nonsense and spat in the face of the set up from the previous movie.
