  • In this cheerfully perverse origin tale of Magneto, Professor X and their mutant team, Vaughn delivers a fireworks display of action, smarts and fun, plus a touch of class from actors who can really act. show more

  • This prequel draws new energy from supersmart casting, plus the shrewd notion of setting the beginnings of the X-Men saga in the early 1960s. show more

  • An elaborate origins story with more datelines than an issue of Condé Nast Traveler (Oxford! Miami! Argentina! Poland!), X-Men: First Class has some fun trying to explain how Professor X, Magneto, and all those mopey mutants came to be. show more

    X-Men: First Class was amazing. I don\'t care what anyone said. James McAoy and Michael F. were just wonderful. I really wish they would have a second part to this. It would rack in so many viewers if you ask me. :D It was epically perfect!!
