Synopsis


X-Men: First Class
Set in the era before Professor Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr became mortal enemies as Professor X and Magneto, respectively, director Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class follows the two former allies as they lead a powerful team of mutants on a mission to save the planet from nuclear annihilation. Charles (James McAvoy) and Erik (Michael Fassbender) were just young men when it began to appear as if the world was careening toward destruction. As the Doomsday Clock ticks faster toward midnight, the time comes to take action. Realizing they could use their unique powers to avert a global thermonuclear war during the Bay of Pigs crisis, the two powerful mutants launch an intense recruitment campaign with the support of Dr. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) and the CIA. Before long, Charles and Erik have assembled a crack team that includes Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Angel (Zoe Kravitz), Havok (Lucas Till), and Darwin (Edi Gathegi). Meanwhile, the malevolent Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) plots to plunge the world into war with the help of villainous mutants Riptide (Alex Gonzalez), Azazel (Jason Flemyng), and Emma Frost (January Jones). In the process of saving humanity, however, Charles and Erik clash, setting the stage for Professor X to lead the X-Men in the fight for good as Magneto and the Brotherhood spread chaos and destruction on a global scale. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Surprisingly Great!

    I was a little skeptical when seeing the previews for this movie, because my opinion of the previous X-Men movies were enjoyable, to rather dull...they should have called them the Wolverine Show. Anyways, James McAvoy straight up stole the show. He sheds a new light on Xavier. Wonderful casting for him. Michael Fassbender as Erik was also pretty well done. Fassbender was pretty decent in 300, for his smaller part (Kind of comic relief) and I really enjoyed his Character of Lt. Archie Hicox in Inglorious B@sterds. Kevin Bacon really threw me off though, I did NOT expect him at all. He was decent. His side kick Emma Frost was utterly terrible though...VERY bland and boring. Lot of good special effects, not great but the story really made this an enjoyable movie. At least they didn't overdo the effects like most movies do these days. The best X-Men movie to date, can't wait to see some more movies like this!

    Better than any of the X-Men movies. If you are a fan of action and solid story telling, and can let the improbable roll off your shoulders, then you will like this film.

    just a few key points 1. This movie is awesome soo many great scenes soo many great actors everything about this movie was way better than expected + i got to see it twice at the IMAX for free! so you can't beat that.. 2. i have an awesome sony BDP N460 and a 120hz hd lcd tv that makes it look incredible.... i do have one iissue though which is the fact that i had to buy it at target because they were the only ones that had the blu-ray+dvd+digital copy combo pack...it was the first blu-ray movie that i did not purchase at best buy....btw best buy is charging the same amount for their 2 disk version as i paid for the 3 disk version at target $22.99....go figure... fantastic movie though one to watch again and again.... now for those of you having issues playing it on your blu-ray player go online and either download or order the newest firmware update for your player thats what i did 6 months ago now it plays everything no problem at all...

    This is an X-Men reboot starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbener, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Kevin Bacon, and Jennifer Lawrence. It was a summer blockbuster from a few years ago and an easy addition to any movie lovers collection. This version also comes with an ultraviolet copy that can be redeemed and streamed through various apps like Vudu, CinemaNow, and others.

    If you are an avid fan of comics, then you'll find this movie to be a good buy. It covers how some of the oldest X-Men characters learned about their powers and developed them to become heroes. Being based partially on actual historic events makes it even more interesting to wonder whether mutants really do live among us and how we would treat them if they did.

    This movie has it all: It takes place in the '60s, there was great acting, the special effects were amazing, there were special appearances by Hugh jackman and Rebecca Rojman, and by the end in the movie Erik Leshser finally Magneto. My favorite part of the movie most of all was when Erik threw the missles back at the american and the russians. Of all the X-men movies I've seen this is the best yet. I can't wait fo rthe sequel.
