X-Men First Class Review

Updated on June 12, 2011

The New X-Men

X-Men First Class is definitely one of those few movies that can be defined in one word: “mind-blowing.” The new X-Men movie is definitely one that was a long time coming. Fans have been waiting for the full story, the full background, and now they’ve got it. The new X-Men is definitely First Class.

A Whole New Experience

All sorts of questions and theories have been answered. It’s really interesting to see how the characters relationships developed, and how they got where they were when the original X-Men movie came out. The movie really goes in depth with this. It turns out that there were some hidden passions that were only hinted at before. Personally, I thought that the emotions would be underplayed, as usual, but I was wrong. And that’s a good thing.

There is also a huge, and I mean huge, amount of graphics in this movie. There was rarely a second without a plane blowing up, or a submarine being flown through the air by Magneto. It was truly amazing. It was almost as I you were there yourself. The miracles of computer animation at their best.

There were plenty of new and old characters in X-Men First Class. Besides the usual Professor X, Magneto, and Mystique, there is a whole team of new mutants. With names such as “Darwin,” and “Angel,” you know it’s going to be good. And with new mutants, there is, of course, going to be new powers as well. Be prepared for laser blasts, sonic screams, and devilish teleportation at the very least.

All in all, X-Men First Class is a definite thrill-ride, and is not lacking in any aspect. The only thing I was left wondering was what happened between the end of the movie and the beginning of the original X-Men. But, besides that, I was satisfied. It filled a lot of gaps that were left when X-Men came out. To tell you the truth, I went to see it expecting to be disappointed, but instead I was astounded. And on a rating of 1-10, X-Men First Class gets a solid rating of 9, and only that little simply because I don’t feel like giving out a full 10 just yet.

      Definitely considering going to see this movie since I enjoyed all the rest of the series, but wasn't so keen on #3: Last Stand or the Wolverine movie.
