Did you like the first two X-Men movies? Me too. X-Men 2 is one of the best comic-book movies of all time in my opinion. Let’s not kid ourselves though, the last third of those first two X-Men movies weren’t great, turning into a muddled mess that was poorly edited and directed, making the first two thirds almost feel like a different movie. X-Men: First Class, on the other hand, doesn’t have any such trouble. From spectacular beginning to unfortunate end, X-Men: First Class stays consistent and puts X-Men 2 to shame.
