Film.com | X-Men: First Class Review

Film: The damage inflicted on the X-Men franchise by the poorly received X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine wasn’t quite as extensive as the harm done to Batman by the infamous Batman & Robin, but the brand was definitely in need of similar revitalization. Unlike Batman Begins, though, X-Men: First Class doesn’t start from scratch. Instead, it uses the themes of the previous movies to build an intelligent, fast-paced, and highly entertaining prequel. It also re-raises the bar for superhero flicks in general, which have gotten complacent lately.

The story is too old to be commented.
