A pretty neat surprise, we all know it was gonna be a blockbuster movie, that it was going to be full of visual effects and loads of cgi and action. I wasn't expecting to be as entertaining as it was obviously the credit goes to Michael Fassbender it was stunning as Erik Lensherr the infant who lost his parents in WWII also as Magneto that quintessential outcast with that brutal sense of awareness capable of anything.
A good one must say, enjoyable being what it really is a summer blockbuster movie

For a blockbuster, it was good. Nothing fancy and pretty average CGI, but good overall.

First, I'd like to say that I don't know the original story from the comics. So, as a lay in this terms, all I can say is that I'm absolutely impressed. What most amazed me was how the story fitted perfectly in our history's context. It's just perfect.

As if the story wasn't enough, James McAvoy is a stunning Charles Xavier. Watching him in the night life is like knowing your father before he met your mother. In the other end we have Micheal Fassbender also in a better Magneto than I could ever imagine. Their acting allowed us to connect to both and, I have to admit, to actually like Erik Lehnsherr. And in the farthest end we have Mr. Kevin Bacon in a ridiculously amazing enemy. He is as Sebastian Shaw what seems to be missing in these last James Bond movies. A ludicrous yet feared super vilain, with the most luxurious henchmen, a detailed super-evil plan and a tuned submarine.

As I said, the story aligns perfectly with the world's history, but that's not all. Somehow, Matthew Vaughn was able to transport to outside the screen the debate about acceptance. It's not only a mere excuse to a superhero movie, but something much deeper. It is also impressive to see the good guy and the bad guy arguing their antagonic points of view with fully and well constructed bases. Afterall, who wouldn't be outraged by those nazis that killed your mother?

With everything I could come up now said - I didn't wanted to stop to think afraid of losing all those thoughts - allied with some of the most impressive special effects I ever saw, X-Men - First Class is in my top 3 superhero movies. Below The Dark Knight and above Kick-Ass.

10/10

Saw this and PotC4 on the same day. Lets just say maybe it would've been a better idea to watch PotC first because dayumm I enjoyed this too much.

The film is strongest when it confines itself to moments of discovery between only two or three characters. By contrast, it's weakened by overblown CGI spectacle (as in the finale). It's hip production design (indebted Connery's Bond era) and a setting during the Cuban Missile Crisis suggest a faux-gravitas that will be lost on many of this summer's popcorn munchers.

Many will remember the adoption of X-Men: The Last Stand as a metaphor for the gay community. That film asked "Is mutation illness or identity, sickness or signatue?" Should the franchise continue on course as 1960s historical fiction, I'd expect future installments to similarly address themes of the Civil Rights Movement.

Great storyline. Acting could've been a little better in parts. The Wolverine cameo was too short! Overall, I'd see this film again.
