User reviews on X-Men: First Class
see review of green lantern, I feel the same on this movie too.
A must see, simple as that! This film was excellent.A perfect cast indeed and such wicked background stories of the mutants and their early life.It left me wanting to know more, I certainly recommend this film.
I just plain loved it. The movie keeps you wanting more.
This is the fifth film in the X-Men series and second prequel that is directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence. I was pleasantly surprised with this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film felt very original and fresh and it definitely breathed in some life into the X-Men franchise. It was really fun for me to watch my favourite characters in their earlier life and see their progress and development. I think that James McAvoy is excellent as Xavier and he shined in this role. Overall, I really liked this film.
I really liked this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was fast-paced, interesting to watch and perfectly casted. The film was smart and ambitious and I was very surprised because the previous ones kind of bombed. Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy did a great job with their roles, I really enjoyed watching them. I enjoyed the story and the character development and I think that many questions i had before were answered. Overall, I really liked this film and as a fan I am very happy.

Long running time. 2 Thumbs up!
A must see movie dont wait go see it u won't be disappointed
My first thoughts on this movie is, "A little less talk and a lot more action please". The back story was interesting, if not a tad bit repetitive. I enjoyed how they brought in the hellfire club, which was a a group (in the comic world) that seemed to have mutants that could cancel out the X-men's abilities with equal precision. However, the story itself took so long to get going, I ended up looking at my watch. That is not a good sign. The action really only got going toward the end of the movie and then as with all things, it was great but not nearly enough.
What I enjoyed in this movie was the character development, the back story revealed on Magneto and Xavier's friendship and revealed also is how Charles lost his ability to walk.
Overall, the movie did not meet expectations and dragged on needlessly. The action scenes were great. There was no extra scene after the credits (even though about half the theater waited for one).
Let us hope that upon the next installment, they will honor the request of a little less talk and a lot more action.
P.S. Look for a brief cameo of WOLVERINE!!!
The summer of awesome comic book films continues with X-Men: First Class. This origin story makes you forget about that horrible Wolverine movie and get back to what made the first couple of X-Men movies cool: a bunch of mutants with different super powers. Directed by Matthew Vaughan, this film allows him to bring the kinetic energy and fun he brought to Kick Ass to this Marvel franchise and inject some life into it.
After a short stop in Nazi Germany where we meet Erik Lennsherr, the boy that will become Magneto, it's off to the early 1960s, where Vaughan takes full advantage of the style of the times to create almost a superhero James Bond movie. You've got ladies dressed in a lot of skimmpy outfits (which I was perfectly OK with), and the Cold War as a backdrop. Lennsherr and Francis Xavier (the future Dr. X) come together to fight Lennsherr's nemesis, the Nazi Sebastian Shaw. They bring together a lot of the characters who will later be known as the X-Men, as well as some of their enemies.
Vaughan directs this film with a much lighter feel than the earlier X-Men films, and the series is much better for it. There's a few too many characters to keep track of, but all of the actors do an excellent job emulating actors from the previous films. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender especially do an excellent job as the future Dr. X and Magneto. And, of course, I'm always happy to see Kevin Bacon in anything. X-Men: First Class makes me (and I fear saying this) actually look forward to seeing Captain America when it's released next month.
