Movie Review: "X-Men: First Class"


Ah the last super-hero movie review, and the best in the genre this year – in my humble opinion.

This reboot of the X-Men franchise (after the debacle that was X-Men: The Last Stand, and the disappointment of X-Men Origins: Wolverine) takes us all the way back to the start of it all.

And by start I mean Professor Xavier (Professor X to his friends) still had hair, could walk, and was a bit of a horny devil!










Like the first X-Men movie, we start out seeing little Erik Lensherr (Magneto to his friends) at his concentration camp. However, unlike the other X-Movies we see what drives him to become Magneto (and actually empathise with him). Although all the acting isn't top-notch, the overall story and action more than make up for it.

X-Men: First Class is rated a “Watch”.

QBF Rating: 4.0/5.0

PS: Wolverine has the best guest-appearance in movie history!

PPS: Xavier should have tapped that! After you watch you'll understand what/whom I mean.

PPPS: Why is Cyclops' younger brother (Havok) in this movie? Must there be a Summers family member in every X-Movie contractually?
