X-Men: First Class

Rated PG-13 130 minutes 2011

X-Men: First Class continues with the origin stories that began with the widely panned X-Men Origins: Wolverine, going way back to show us the beginnings of Professor X, Magneto, Mystique and a few other mutants who aren’t half as interesting. Director Matthew Vaughn (maker of Kick-Ass) does a fantastic job with the origin stories of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr, aka Professor X and Magneto. Charles is free of his wheelchair, with a head full of hair; he’s played with boatloads of charm by James McAvoy. Michael Fassbender is chillingly cool as the man who shall become Magneto. As for the other mutants (including Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique), the film feels like a Harry Potter rip-off. Still, Fassbender and McAvoy, along with a Cuban Missile Crisis subplot, make this worth watching.
