Superhero action prequel to the first three 'X-Men' movies. The film charts the beginning of the saga, following Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) through their formative years in the 1960s as they come to terms with their newfound superpowers. Initially close friends who work together to fight against evil, the two men are driven apart by a conflict of opinion that ultimately leads to the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men. Kevin Bacon, January Jones and Rose Byrne co-star.
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

Well hell yes, X men First class, is now my favourite along with our Egyptian Friend! I found How Charles Rounded up Bunch of kid Mutants As I saw it, quite funny at first, except of course Eric who remained sullen and out for revenge against Shaw (Evil Kevin Bacon)............The scene where they all playing their powers, is the first time I seen Raven actually laughing and having a ball. The cute younger Raven / Mystique with now, her long life friends Charles was compelling. To cut a long story short, this is based around the Missile crisis in Cuba in err 1962? Some characters I didn't know, (not being the comic fan) that the tall girl, made of some kind of ice or crystal and a mean Devil with a tail. I just loved the device new fangled toy, "Beast"Built called "Cerebro".... To cut to the chase, end sequence was quite emotional, with Moria trying to stop Eric firing back the missiles to the ships, she fires her gun at Erik, but puts one bullet in Charles, no wonder he erased her memories of that fateful day, Which I guess is how he ended up in a wheel Chair. Very satisfying film to plug the gaps I never knew. only part of this Xmen title I found a bit irritating was Shaw's tacky submarine, and what he had in mind, if a WW3 had occurred. He should have been cut out after the Auschwitz scenes.Read more ›
A well made film about x-men origins.
Best adaptation (no pun intended) since Hellboy.
Best cast and villains (super or otherwise). Special credit to the "super" humans -Raven, Azeeasel(?), Angel and Banshee getting enough personnae to show their feet of clay (include Xavier and Magneto).
Nicely nuanced, fast paced and well produced.
Hugely entertaining and great merging arcs of plot and characterisation. A great romp and the extras suggest what appears on screen was a fairly good rendition of the cast and crews expectations.
