In the process of fighting the common enemy and saving humanity, Magneto and Professor X clash. Magneto and his men use their powers to cause destruction while Professor X and his team fight for good.
The movie is engaging and captures the attention of the viewer from the first minute to the last. It is based on solid acting from all the actors, and the visual effects used draw out the emotions of the viewer. Not only does the movie succeed in showcasing the extraordinary capabilities of the mutants but also allows the viewer understand the motivations of the actors in the film.
1. A mutant who does not look like a human cannot remain to be human. Based on Freud’s notion of the Uncanny, when familiar things undergo change, they become frightening and become a source of worry. Based on this fact, a mutant who does not appear like a human will in fact become frightening, ceasing to be human. If I looked like Mystique, I would conceal my natural blue form into a human disguise in order to fit and interact with other humans. Otherwise, I will not fit into society.
2. Normal human beings cannot treat mutants who do not like humans equally. There unique appearance will definitely make them different, and based on the notion of the Uncanny, will be seen as a source of threat. If Mystique in her blue form walked around a grocery store, people are likely to run away from her, and perhaps attack her.
3. I believe that Shaw’s plan could have worked, considering the power and the long term effects of nuclear poisoning. Those mutants who disagreed with his plan would be destroyed by Shaw and his team, as they would most likely stand by humans and protect them.
