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?

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
