When Bryan Singer brought Marvel's X-Men to the big screen, Magneto and Professor X were elder statesmen, but Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) travels back in time to present an origin story--and an alternate version of history. While Charles Xavier (Laurence Belcher) grows up privileged in New York, Erik Lehnsherr (Bill Milner) grows up underprivileged in Poland. As children, the mind-reading Charles finds a friend in the shape-shifting Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and Erik finds an enemy in Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon), an energy-absorbing Nazi scientist who treats the metal-bending lad like a lab rat. By 1962, Charles (James McAvoy) has become a swaggering genetics professor and Erik (Michael Fassbender, McAvoy's Band of Brothers costar) has become a brooding agent of revenge. CIA agent Moira (Rose Byrne) brings the two together to work for Division X. With the help of MIB (Oliver Platt) and Hank (A Single Man's Nicholas Hoult), they seek out other mutants, while fending off Shaw and Emma Frost (Mad Men's January Jones), who try to recruit them for more nefarious ends, leading to a showdown in Cuba between the United States and the Soviet Union, the good and bad mutants, and Charles and Erik, whose goals have begun to diverge. Throughout, Vaughn crisscrosses the globe, piles on the visual effects, and juices the action with a rousing score, but it's the actors who make the biggest impression as McAvoy and Fassbender prove themselves worthy successors to Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. The movie comes alive whenever they take centre stage, and dies a little when they don't. For the most part, though, Vaughn does right by playing up the James Bond parallels and acknowledging the debt to producer Bryan Singer through a couple of clever cameos. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

X-Men: First Class brings together the epic scale and action of a classic blockbuster with a character driven story that unveils the beginning of the X-Men saga--and a secret history of the Cold War and our world at the brink of nuclear armageddon. As the first class discovers, harnesses and comes to terms with their formidable powers, alliances are formed that will shape the eternal war between the heroes and villains of the X-Men universe. The British dream team behind Kick-Ass--director Matthew Vaughn and writer Jane Goldman--are joined by a stellar cast including James McAvoy (Wanted), Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds), Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man) and Jason Flemying (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) in one of the biggest comic book blockbusters.

By Wayne Klein VINE VOICE
Wildly entertaining "X-Men: First Class" works amazingly well as both a prequel to the trilogy (there are inconsistencies between this film and the third one but it's also been suggested by the makers of this that it is a reboot since Professor Xavier and Magneto are working together in the third film and Professor X can walk in the third film and "Wolverine")and on its own even if you haven't seen the other films. It's refreshing particularly after "X-Men: The Last Stand" which had some major dramatic flaws.

I'm going to skip the plot of the film because that's been well covered elsewhere except suffice to say that this is where Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender)first meet and try to stop Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon)a mutant determined to wipe out humanity.

Evidently "X-Men: First Class" doesn't play on all Blu-ray players (most notably some of the 3D players and Samsung)so be aware that until they develop firmware updates it will be a problem for some players. I'd suggest shutting off your BD Live if it is Playstation related as that sometimes will also slow down the loading of the BD.

The image quality for "X-Men: First Class" is top notch with a brilliant, sharp and colorful presentation.

The Blu-ray features a number of cool extras including "Cerebro: Mutant Tracker" allowing you to track your favorite mutants and see exclusive videos, profiles, etc.

"Children of the Atom" a multi-part documentary on the making of the film focusing on the origin of the story and the obvious James Bond influence on many sequences of the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The re-birth of the X-Men 3 Nov 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw the movie at the cinema on the first day of release and was blown away, the DVD although very light on extras, just a few extended scenes, is superb.
Forget about the Marvel comics history and any time-line inconsistencies with the other X-Men movies and just enjoy it for what it is, a valiant attempt to knit together an original version of the birth of the X-men and what drove Charles and Erik apart set against the backdrop of the Cuban missile crisis.
It ties in well with several elements from the first movie, the concentration camp scenes and the fact that Charles and Erik were once close friends but to its credit it delves into the past of other major characters especially Mystique and Beast but also Banshee, Havok and not forgetting Emma Frost and Moira MacTaggert.
Kevin Bacon is well cast as Sebastian shaw, no Hellfire Club but a credible background story of an attempt to kickstart nuclear war in order to create mutations, the children of the atom. I won't grumble at the lack of others from the club as most of Emma Frost's appearances are quite memorable.
Not all the new to the screen mutant characters work but most fit into the movie fairly well.
There's lots of nods towards the X-universe with brief appearances by Cyclops and Storm as well as noteable cameos by Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Romijn.
Not sure where the X-Men franchise will go from here but the way the movie pans out means that there is plenty of scope for a sequel with the emergence of a new Brotherhood.

4.0 out of 5 stars School for mutants 27 Nov 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Continuing on from X-Men Origins: Wolverine [DVD] in telling the back story of how characters in the X-Men [DVD] [2000] got to the point where they were at the start of that one, it's now time for the story of everyone who isn't Wolverine.

We thus start with the concentration camp scene from the beginning of x men, but played from a different angle. As a nazi who has a slightly different bunch of eugenics theories to his comrades takes an interest in the abilities of young eric.

Meantime in a big house in america young charles xavier and a young girl both find that they're not as alone in life as they thought.

Flash forward to the 1960s and a hirsute charles is on the verge of a professorship, thanks to his theories about evolution. Telepathy comes in very handy when youre trying to chat up the ladies.

Eric is all grown up and on mission to get revenge on those who did for his parents.

CIA agent Moira Mctaggart, a lone lady agent amongst men who think women should stay in the typing pool, is fighting hard to do her job and be taken seriously.

A certain nazi hasn't gone away. And has his own plans for the future of the planet.

And the Russians aren't taking kindly to nato putting missles into turkey.

A missile crisis is upon us. With hidden forces pulling strings behind the scenes, it might be up to charles and his band of special people to save the day. But not everyone may agree on the way to do that. Or think that humanity is worth saving.
