X-Men: First Class

X-Men: First Class (2011)

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: James McAvoy, Kevin bacon, Michael Fassbender, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence

Synopsis: Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN. Written by Twentieth Century Fox.

Guess who's back, back again. Glen Live is back, tell some men...
I had high hopes for this film particular. I was one of the few, who liked Origins (even though it had major plot holes), but with First Class they were really high. I'm glad to say that all my hopes were matched and surpassed. I truly enjoyed this film. The acting, the visuals, the story, everything, it was just amazing. The story - the only thing I had doubts in. When I finally god home I started reading to find out how close it was to the original comic book version. I'm not a hardcore comic fan, but I like my stories straight. Well fuck me... It was pretty good. They took bits and pieces and put them all together. I like how they tied all the loose ends. (Spoiler alert) Xavier losing the use of his legs and Mystique going with Magneto. Even though the comic version is different, I still liked it. I'm not quite sure what else to say. It is truly a great piece of film. Even if you're not a comic book fan than you should still see it. You'll mind will be blown.
Final Verdict?? What are you waiting for? DVD rip? Fuck No, go see it!
