X-Men: First Class movieChip Reece says:

Saw this last night!

I think it had the same feel as the first two X-Men movies, which may in
part be due to Singer being producer on this installation to the franchise.
Apart from a few cheese lines and a goofy looking Beast, I thought
everything looked great. There will of course be some hard core fans who
don’t like the changes made to continuity, or the fact that the only original
X-man is Beast in this flick. I felt like this movie was enough to please the
comic fanboy, and still not alienate the general audience. I would also like
to give props to Kevin Bacon for a job well done. Had my doubts about him
in that kind of role. I would rate this movie as a B+. Be warned if you take
children there are a lot of scenes with scantily clad women being seductive.

I thought this was great! Loved the way it was weaved into the Cuban missile crisis and dove tailed quite well into current X-Men movie “continuity” without getting bogged down by it. I got a little confused because I have just a passing familiarity with the X-Men and it took me a while to get used to the new characters I didn’t know well – I may have preferred to see more characters already in the franchise at a younger age such as a teenaged Cyclops and Iceman as a child. I also felt it took itself seriously enough to appeal to my intellect - especially with Magneto’s character arc – but did not overdo it on the gags and jokes. The funny moments it did have got big laughs with the crowd I watched it with. It’s a little long but I never got bored or felt that it dragged. All in all I don’t regret my money and feel this is one of the better superhero movies.

I saw it Friday. I liked it! Granted, it wasn’t perfect (did anyone else think Xavier seemed kind of like a pompous jerk…?) but I enjoyed it. Though, I’ll admit that I don’t know much about X-men (I’m a DC fan :P).

I really like Magneto! Especially in the first part of the movie. He’s a great character. Mystique was good too. I liked that they tied in what happens (happened?) in the first three movies into her back story.

But…why wasn’t there an extra scene after the credits? I feel cheated! And if Stan Lee made his obligatory cameo, I didn’t catch it.

Top 5 comic book movie of all-time. Possibly top 3 with just Dark Knight and Iron Man being above it for sure. In time, it might even pass Iron Man for me.

It passed my expectatations. Magneto and Banshee were the best characters. I love when they tried to get Logan to join, best part of the whole movie.  Kevin Bacon was great, I didn’t like how his power was represented in the movie.  8.7/10

Looks like this one’s a winner!
