The pace is great and the action is unbelievable. I couldn't believe that almost two hours had gone by when it was over. It's not as complex as Iron Man or Spider-Man 2 but it's loaded with intense fun. Everything in this movie is exceedingly better then what we saw in X3. Characters find their own distinctiveness and just flat out kick butt.
Visually, it's a sight to behold, with good effects and a dynamic sense of presence. I was very impressed with the direction and cinematography. The final showdown was a standout and will be remembered as one of the best comic book confrontations of all time. It's wonderful action mixed with nice drama. It so fits the main characters. The cast was used remarkably well and Hugh Jackman simply shines as Wolverine. Overall, I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this movie.
