Rated 4.5 out of 5★ by 19reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by TheOmegaMan Most Impressive The Good: This film was much better than I had expected it to be. Kevin Bacon does a better job than Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) would have done with the role of Shaw. Michael Fassbender portrays Magneto in a way you can really get with emotionally. He shows Magneto's anger as a young man in this X-MEN Origin story. Cameos are awesome, especially concerning a tie-in with an upcoming movie. Interesting alternate history of the early 1960s Cold War era.The Bad: This film needs you to ignore certain things from the X-MEN trilogy. Sometimes the continuity with other films exists and other times it doesn't. Doesn't follow the comics (but that can be said about so many comic movies).That's the good, the bad and here's the ugly: It's a great movie. Despite the things I saw that irritated me, I still liked it. 08/22/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Oliphant OK but not exceptional What can I say not as good as I thought then it's a movie not a durable goods product. Each person has there own idea what makes a really good movie. 09/24/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by UndrcvrNrd This movie's content and quality are exceptional. It will be a welcome addition to my X-Men video collection. I truly love the SFX. 10/03/2011

Rated 2 out of 5★ by adventpisces Beware Movie Buffs This was a positively dreadful film primarily for two reasons.1) Casting choices as per Chuck and Erick; they look, act, sound nor resemble (in any other fashion) Pat or Ians' characters in prior films.BOO to the director, and BOO to casting.2) Timeline If you have fanatically observed the ages regarding Original Xmen Trilogy & Wolverine You will notice that in 'Last Stand' chuck (who is OLD and WALKING) and eric (who is just old) visit the noticeably young Pheonix (Jean Grey). ALSO notice that eric and chuck are still very much good friends.... at 50-something. This does not look to be the two 20something futile acquaintances in 'First Class'.Boo to Writer(s) and Producer(s).I am not an avid reader or appreciator of the original X-Mens'. I am, however, a pretty big movie buff, and as far as this one goes; Hollywood Hype Trash. Thank You, and Good Day. 09/21/2011
