X-Men: First Class

  • Nothing like the comic it's supposedly based on. All the better for it.
  • Fassbender and McAvoy were brilliant as Xavier and Magneto. So so good.
  • The single, allowed use of the F-word in the film was brilliant.
  • While Rose Byrne didn't have much to do, she sure was nice to look at.
  • The roots of all the other X-Men films are clear and as a fan of the comic I enjoyed a lot of the references.
  • Made me hope for an X-Men: Second Class film.
  • My favourite of the X-Men movies. Just outclassing X2.
  • So far Matthew Vaughn has done no wrong. First Class, Kick-Ass, Stardust. Yet to see Layer C4KE.
