#9- MAGNETO TURNS THE TABLES – (X-MEN) 2000
Let’s face it, as much as I liked the first film and it was groundbreaking for comic book movies, it wasn’t all that spectacular. Like most first installments, “X-Men” was mostly set-up. However, a stellar cast and fan fervor really elevated the movie. Despite its mediocre story and lack of “WOW” moments director Bryan Singer was able to capture the spirit and texture of the characters Magneto, played by Ian McKellan, displayed the master of magnetism’s effortless power and underlying humanity perfectly in this scene.
