My sister wanted me to watch X3 this Friday with her, so I decided to watch the first two moview of X-Men, and I actually enjoyed it, not just for the effects, but even the allegory behind the story line caught me (and Nightcrawler being a Catholic was also a favorite).
Has anyone noticed what I'm talking about?
The main theme is obviously what to do when you evolve. In Evolution, it's always about competition and survival of the fittest. This is what Magneto and his followers want. But Dr. Xavier wants to protect humans while at the same time protect the mutants.
To me, this more than just ending racist lines, but also spiritually, one can see Dr. Xavier's mission as a mission that can only be justified if one believes in God. To put our lives on the line for the sake of the lives of others is the true Christian love we all seek.
Also, the end of X2, something amazing happened. Gean (or was it Jean, I don't know) seemed to have died in the midst of a sea of water and saved the rest of the X-Men. However, in the end, she rose from the dead, from the water, as Phoenix (or that's what the next movie implies). Doesn't that have a link to baptism? Is this a "Narnia" type movie, or am I looking too much into it?
Feel free to add any more of how you portray the X-Men movies.
