XMEN First Class - Movie Review

Blurb from IMDb: In 1962, Charles Xavier starts up a school and later a team, for humans with superhuman abilities. Among them is Erik Lensherr, his best friend... and future archenemy.

Before their changes:

After they became Baddass:


Oh, yeah, this one really surprised me. I’m a comic buff. Hey, I can’t help it. My dear hubby has been brainwashing me on comics for years. Not to mention – I got a thing for super heroes. Anyway, this one has some great character building. People with serious attitudes are out to get the US and they are trying to start a world war. This one was probably the best mainly because it stuck real close to the original comic story. The characters in this were vivid and there was plenty of action and the movie was just plain super fun. I give it a 4 out of 5 Magnets. This is a great summer movie if you like super heroes, comics or the X-men. My only issue was that they only teased me with Wolverine…that guy has my heart.

I've been hearing good things about this movie and you aren't the first person to mention the great character building. I may have to check this out.

I'll probably go see this, as I've always had a soft spot for the X Men, plus you gave it a good review!

I cannot wait to see this. This weekend!!! The hubby even wants to see this and he doesn't always like the superhero type movies but for some reason he has loved the entire X-Men colloection of movies, especially, Wolverine's story. Thanks for the review!!!

thanks for the review! i always trust your movie reviews and I have to say that I'm relieved by this one because from the commercials, i was worried that it may be borderline cheesy. But, if you say it was good, then i believe you and look forward to seeing it!
