X1 and X2 both had tight storylines, focused character development, and knew where to spend its money.
Not to mention that by the time of the climatic battle at the end of X3 two of the lead heroes were dead, the third was on the wrong side and the fourth (Storm) never was developed enough for anyone to care about. That left the audience to root for Wolverine and a lot of second stringers like Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Beast, etc. Sure, if you knew the comics they held value to you but within the confines of the movie they had about as much value as Star Trek red shirts.
