I’ve watched all the X-Men movie franchise and I enjoyed them all. Who wouldn’t? It has all the elements of a superhero film with all the fight scenes and special effects. But when I watched X-Men: First Class recently, I’d say it’s beautiful and it’s my favorite X-Men movie to date.
I loved how these mutants with superpowers initially struggled with their abilities; and how they fought to hide their real identities because they were different. I enjoyed how the story did not capitalize on the characters’ powers and attitudes as superheroes/super villains. All throughout, the movie felt serene. It’s like a feel-good movie. The actors did a great job playing their characters too. Michael Fassbender did a great job playing Erick Lenssher who struggled to decide between good and evil. Kevin Bacon, playing as Sebastian Shaw, is in his usual good self acting as a villain. James McAvoy also did great in his role as the thick-haired Professor X.
If you haven’t, you better go see this movie. I’m glad I did. My only regret is that I watched it at the SM Cinema. Although they claim that Cinema 1 is digital, the sound was not very good. It felt flat compared to maybe had I watched it at the Cineplex of Gateway Mall. Or maybe I was just expecting too much.
At any rate, the movie is still shown all over the metro. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Get back here to share your experience. If you watched it already, share your thoughts below.
