It has been several months since The X-Men stopped William Stryker, but that victory came at a price: they have lost Jean Grey when she tried to save them from the collapsed reservoir. Scott Summers (Cyclops) is still grieving about her loss. One day, he comes out to the place where Jean Grey sacrificed herself. Jean Grey appears right in front of him. Meanwhile, the rift between humans and mutants has finally reached the boiling point. Humans have discovered what causes humans to mutate and have found a cure for the mutation. The X-Men are appalled at this idea. When news about the cure comes to Magneto, he decides to organize an army of mutants and wage his war against the humans. When Jean Grey evolves into the Phoenix, her new mutant powers are so strong that she can not control her own body. Then, she kills off Professor X with her new powers. Now, The X-Men must stop Magneto again and put an end to the war against the humans, as well as stop Jean Grey's Phoenix powers.
|nudity||A woman is seen naked, lying on the floor, you see her entire backside bare from the hip down, butocks as well.|
|violence||This film easily has the highest body count of the first 5 films of the franchise. Though the violence is not gory, there is always some blood involved, from characters being hit, scratched, thrown around, or stabbed with knives. The fights and violence are always shown from quick cuts so no extreme detail is seen, but it is still very brutal and intense to watch. A young boy is seen with wounds on his back and holding a bloody knife, as he has cut off his wings. In one scene a woman kicks, punches and chokes several men. Vehicles full of government agents are destroyed. A woman snaps a man's neck with her legs. A man pulls spikes out of his body which had been thrown into him. His shirt is bloody but no other gore is shown. Several people are killed with slicing weapons, not much is shown. One mutant has the power to regenerate severed limbs which reappear after they are cut off (no blood). A woman is electrocuted and people are shot with tranquilizers that take away mutant powers. One mutant can turn people into dust and does so repeatedly. In one scene this disintegration is seen as someone's skin being shredded, with muscle & skeleton visible; bloody portions of his body are shown).|
