Last week I was out of town and didn’t get to see the X-Men First Class on opening weekend so I thought I would catch it this week. I had heard amazing reviews about this one and some people even said this was the best X-Men movie. So needless to say I was excited about this one. Well I am happy to report I have more good things to say about this one then bad.
The Good- Professor X and Magneto were amazing, I loved seeing them work as a team and seeing how certain things with them happen. James McAvoy I thought stole the movie, alot of people think Michael Fassbender did and he was awesome but I really just love the Professor X character.
Also Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique was very good and well acted. However I did have a slight problem with her. I thought she looked a bit weird in the costume and couldn’t get Rebecca Romijn out of my head. But Lawrence is a great actress and proved it once again in this film.
It just felt like a good comic book movie with some good action and cool mutant powers!
The Bad- Beast’s costume was terrible, I mean really bad. I don’t know how they could make beast so cool looking in X-Men: The Last Stand and he look so crappy in this one.
Emma Frost- Alot of people said January Jones acting was terrible and I didnt really pick up on that. What I did pick up on was the terrible CGI when she was in her diamond/ice transformation or what ever the hell that was called. It was straight out of an early 90’s straight to video movie and is completely laughable that it is in a big budget movie.
Overall I loved the movie, I don’t this it was the best X-Men film but certainly wasn’t the worst!
That’s all I got for now so until next time………Remember, Mutants really are not that bad, although they could be…!!
