The X-Men seem like a nice group of fellas. With Professor Xavier at the helm, Cyclops leads the team of Mutants into battle, always successfully thwarting Magneto and other villains along the way. Well, that’s typically how it plays out. In Wolverine and the X-Men: Final Crisis Trilogy, Marvel’s latest X-Men DVD, it’s a much different world. Xavier has portrayed an apocalyptic future world, that needs the X-men, with Wolverine at the lead, to save it. The Phoenix is in danger, Magneto has launched the Sentinel army, Master Mold aims to track down, and kill, every mutant on the planet … yeah, doesn’t sound so fun. But, it makes for a darn good DVD! Especially seeing the heroes fight their way through this fright fest for the side of good. Take a look at the official write up below, then head to your local video store to pick it up
