Mutant and Proud: All 10 'X-Men' Movies Ranked

Mutant and Proud: All 10 'X-Men' Movies Ranked
From Slashfilm - March 20, 2017

Now that Logan has been in theaters for a couple of weeks, we figured its a good time to take stock of all the films in the X-Men universe. Outside of the coreX-Menseries and the Wolverine spin-off films, the Marvel Comics universe at 20th Century Fox has expanded to include Deadpool, giving us 10total films that all exist in the same world, and we collaboratively ranked them all.

To make this list, we had as many members of the /Film crew as possible submit their own personal ranking of each of the X-Men movies from one through ten. The film in the top spot was given 10 points, the second got 9 points and so on and so forth until the final movie gotjust a single point. What follows is the result of tabulating all of the points for each of the movies after looking at lists submitted byPeter Sciretta, Jacob Hall, Ethan Anderton, Jack Giroux, David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, Christopher Stipp, Ben Pearson, and Hoai-Tran Bui.

There were two clear runaways at the top, while the films that followed were a little more varied in their ranking among the team. However, there were no scruples about which were the worst three films in the entire series. While we all had different opinions about where those movies fell at the bottom of the list, none of them earned more than 3 points on any one of our lists.

Anyway, without further adieu, heres /Films collaborative ranking of all the X-Men movies. Lets start with the worst of them.

10. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (13 points)

It should come to no surprise to anyone with a single shred of respect for X-Men that this is the worst film in the entire franchise (its three points away from having the lowest score possible). While many had hoped this movie would give us the deep dive into Wolverines history that fans of the character wanted, all this did was drop a big steaming pile of garbage on not only our comic book movie dreams but also Hugh Jackmans career.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine goes far back into Wolverines past, and while the dynamic between him and his brother Sabretooth (played by Liev Schreiber) might have been compelling in another movie, here its just hollow fodder to give Wolverine one of several lame villains to face throughout the movie. Sure, the opening credits that span decades are cool, and there are a couple of solid action sequences. But theyre all dwarfed by an abysmal script that turns Wolverine into a two-dimensional character who has a bunch of dumb one-liners, not to mention some of the most awful visual effects ever seen in a tentpole of this scale.

9. X-Men: Apocalypse (19 points)

8. X-Men: The Last Stand (22 points)
