X-Men: First Class (2011)

X-Men: First Class, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men. More »

    The only word I can think of that describes this film is 'pleasant'. Nothing wrong with the film in itself, but doesn't push any boundaries or break new ground at all. In fact being a pre-quel it feels like a step backwards.

    Fact is that First Class is one of the top five adaptation films ever made however you cut it or whatever the other four films on your personal list.

    I thought I was going mad again for a moment, reading a few reviews with 5.0 I saw 'The Dark Knight' all over again. But then I hit the official review that rated it 2.0 and thought there is some sense in the world.

    Since I watched this from an angle of comic-book reading, I was quite disappointed in the role of Magneto, his essence was not captured here at all. The dimensions of his character was very poorly written. The good news was that they did a better job with Xavier, Havor with no Cyclops which was weird but i guess when it comes to Hollywood they are not concerned about tell the correct version of the x-men. Overall, I think it was okay, would I watch it again most likely not.

    Mutants did not just all pop up during the second world war and the Hellfire club was more quiet and more powerful than portrayed, plus their agenda's was not just down to Shaw alone, he was one of the the four strong members of the council, never even saw anything on the black queen or the other members.
