   Movie Summary: [Action/Adventure, Sci-Fi/Fantasy]

    Adapted from the most popular Marvel comics of the 1990s, The X-Men are a group of genetic mutants with amazing abilities, brought together and trained by the world's most powerful telepath, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) to help fight for his dream - a world where the mutant minority and human majority can live together in harmony - to be judged not by the fancy powers they posess, but by the content of their character. However, the Mutant Master of Magnetism, Magneto (Ian McKellen), scarred by the human brutality he's experienced, has come to believe the mutant race is superior to humanity, and should rule over them as their betters, and he's amassed a brotherhood of like-minded mutants to help achieve his goals by any means necessary. With anti-mutant sentiment prevailing at every turn, the X-Men strive to protect the very humans that fear and hate them.

Editor's Notes: Funny gag segment.

Editor's Notes
The DTS track on this disc has been dropped by Fox for quality reasons. The video quality was compromised too much with the addition of the DTS track. Look for the DVD to contain gags and outtake footage (one performing a sting with Spider-Man).
