Russelling Reviews Rankings: X-Men series (updated February 2017)

We find ourselves at the presipise of another superhero franchise launching a new chapter in their anthology. With Logan about to rage with vengeance into theatres, Russelling Reviews thought it might be worth revisiting a previous list of the best X-men films. 

The list will include the prequels, since they have been intermixed throughout the franchise. It might cause some fans to get anxious, but a little controversy never hurts a good conversation. Since this dates back 16 years, this will be based on entertainment value opposed to quality of effects. 

What is your favourite? 
Some have asked, 
"What about Deadpool?" 

Russelling Reviews has changed the stance on this film. 

Prior X-men lists did not include Deadpool for two reasons. 

1) The utter mistreatment of the red suited figure in the Wolverine film and at the time 2) The comparison did not seem to be fair to the franchise, Deadpool was in a different strata than this franchise had experienced. 

Now with the release of Logan, it would be worth including Deadpool in this franchise. Also, it lifts the quality of this franchise considerably. Not quite to the level of the Marvel Universe (yet), but definitely lifts it above the current DC Universe output
