While this review has attempted to assess the negatives, the truth is that the film is an exciting and engrossing reboot of the franchise, which delivers new life into what was becoming a tired formula. The CGI is big and boisterous, but it never approaches overblown, and there’s enough humanity injected into the piece to make it engaging. It won’t be the best experience you’ll have at the cinema this year, but it’s worth going for Michael Fassbender’s performance alone. X-Men: First Class is, as headline-writers nationwide were hoping, first class.
