Its been a long time since Ive done one of these which is ridiculous because I'm a media Arts student I watch at least 3 films a week 0.o lol
Any way this film (excuse the pun) is First Class! actual awesomeness. It goes back to the origins of the X-men, when everyone was young and sexy, and you understand how everyone gets to where they are. Plus! Nicholas Hoult is in it, the guy who played the boy in About a boy, and the lead in the UK Teen drama Skins. He is hot, even with his geeksheek and American accent 0.o damn dude.
Yes, its informative, thrilling action packed, but not mindlessly action packed its got roots and motive and depth. A friend of mine always related X-men, the feud between Professor X (who's younger self is played by JAMES MCAVOY!) and Magneto - to reflect the relationship between Martin Luther King an Malcolm X and I can really see it.
After seeing this I had to have a X-men marathon, I mean how could I not? And except for the whole saber-tooth mystery the whole thing adds up nicely :) top stuff
I give it **** and a half stars
