X-Men First Class will “WOW” the audiences this weekend. The movie chronicles the origin of the first set of mutants becoming the X-Men during the 1960’s. The story itself had similar plot lines to the original 2000 hit X-Men but with new storylines. The actors in the movie are very well talented and highly in tuned with their characters. The plot in general, was put together better than I had expected. The pacing of the film was well done, First Class was never boring in any part of the film and was excellently put together giving enough time for character development.
James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have great on-screen chemistry together which shows through Charles and Erik’s relationship on screen.
James McAvoy extremely captures the same essence of Charles Xavier like Patrick Stewart did for the original “X-Men”. If you look at this movie and the original “X-Men” you would think that Stewart is McAvoy but younger, hipper and wiser.
Jennifer Lawrence really captured the sexiness and physique of Mystique. Her character was like putty in the hands of a child which showed a lot during the movie.
Kevin Bacon surprised me with his performance as Sabastian Shaw, he really caught me off guard and while watching his character, i saw many connections to the Magneto character through Shaw which the “Magneto” fans and audiences would enjoy.
The movie overall was the best “Marvel” movie next to THOR which is saying much. I give the movie a 9.3
