Ranking X-Men Films

Marvel’s mutant series ‘X-Men’ has been one of their most popular stables of comic book franchises. The first feature-film debuted in 2000 and was labelled as the first superhero film to break into mainstream success, since the downfall of the superhero genre in the mid-90’s. As of 2016, the ‘X-Men’ series consist of 9 films (with 3 being spin-offs), so here is our countdown in ranking the ‘X-Men’ films, however like other countdown lists, we haven’t reviewed all the ‘X-Men’ films.

1) X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – 97

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ reunites the original cast with the prequel characters for an action-packed time-travelling film with stakes and plenty of tension.

2) X-Men (2000) – 80

‘X-Men’ may be short for standard superhero fare, although despite that, it is an exciting action-packed film that introduce this mutant universe.

3) X-Men 2 (2003) – 80

‘X-Men 2’ is a sequel that is equally as good as it origin predecessor. It improves on character development and action sequences.

4) The Wolverine (2013) – 77

‘The Wolverine’ improves from its disappointing first outing and creates a solo film that is filled with action sequences within the film’s setting of Japan.

5) Deadpool (2016) – 72

‘Deadpool’ pushes the boundaries for R-rated superhero fare filled with meta-humour, strong acting and solid action directing.

6) X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) – 70

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ may not have raised the bar that the previous films have, but it checks enough boxes as an entertaining superhero flick, just slightly messy.
