A short review of the film. Nearly perfect except for Cyclops at the end, he seemed out of place. Now I say at the end because for the rest of the film I really enjoyed his moments. Esp when they begin gasing Prof X and Cyclops tries to free him. Now I fail to see how Magneto was weak, the field force is unrealistic so that doesn't exactly count. If by being weak you mean getting tortured and revealing the mansion? I think that he purposely allowed that to happen to him. Magneto was always protrayed as the "puppet master" in the comics. Remember that he knew about Stryker's plans even without going into Wolverine's thoughts, ect. He also was obviously keeping in contact with Mystique and she already had the information on Cybro and Stryker's designs as well. Magneto knew that Stryker was pushing the war further and what he was doing with Prof X. So in reaction he played everyone into wipping out the human race. Doesn't seem weak to me.
