"X-Men: First Class" - FIRST REACTIONS
 

 

So, X-Men: First Class has two incredibly tough tasks ahead of it. Which is to make audiences forgive X-Men 3 (which I don't hate), and to make audiences forget about Wolverine (which I DO hate). It's hard not to be excited yet skeptical all at once about it. But, apparently, some very truly lucky bastards around the world have managed to see it, and while there is an embargo on official reviews, bloggers have chimed with their initial reactions... And the word seems to be positive... VERY positive.

...There is all the excitement, pace and spectacle that you would expect and want from an X-Men film, but what makes X-Men: First Class a film that I can’t wait to see again is the people in it. Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) is one of the true marvels. Vulnerable and fierce, Lawrence’s Mystique has extraordinary depth and much of it is portrayed with no need for words. Whether blue and proud or white and ashamed, this Mystique reflects better than most here the blur between good and evil. But alongside Lawrence we also have fantastic performances from James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Kevin Bacon to name just three. For creating this new X-Men world, from which one sequel at least should be demanded, we should be grateful to director Matthew Vaughn.

I can’t wait to tell you more about X-Men: First Class…

 ‘X-Men: First Class’ – Kate’s (Spoiler-Free) View

I saw the film Friday morning, and while the rest of UK press is embargoed until 25th May, I can officially reveal that Matthew Vaughn's prequel is tremendous.

...Continuing with the Bond comparison, it's fair to say First Class has done to the X-Men franchise what Casino Royale did to the flagging, dated 007. To say it's been revitalised would be an understatement.

...First Class is an incredibly respectful piece of work. Relentlessly entertaining, with a cast of the finest actors working today, it's pure joy from start to finish. Way better than X2, and probably most recent blockbusters.

After two very good movies, that used superpowers as a background to themes of isolation, discrimination and acceptance, we had two less good films, let down by poor storytelling, and bad CGI. It’s rather pleasing then, that X-Men: First Class takes the series back to its roots, both figuratively, in terms of the character-focused drama, and literally, as we open with an almost shot-for-shot recreation of the beginning of Bryan Singer’s first X-Men film. In doing so, the film makes itself instantly familiar, and also, instantly engaging.

 X-Men: First Class – Our Initial Thoughts After Seeing the Completed Film

First Class contains some of the briskest and most efficient storytelling I’ve seen in any recent blockbuster. An awful lot happens, and awfully quickly at times, but it’s all clear and while some nice moments might be over in the blink of an eye, this can only reward repeat viewers.

... I don’t think you can really call the star of a film a scene-stealer, but McAvoy is the best thing in more or less every sequence he’s in, which translates to more or less all of the film. He even gets the opportunity to pull off some great little comedy bits and, when necessary, packs just enough emotional punch.

...So… Is It Any Good?

Oh, hell yes. I really would recommend you go see it.

Simply put I loved it. It’s a superior, exciting, and intelligent comic book movie. McAvoy and Fassbender are brilliant (Fassbender in particular – he is if you’ll excuse the pun, magnetic), and beyond the movie’s expected grand action Vaughn has managed to instill X-Men: First Class with a real emotional core, complexity and a huge amount of style. Taking the X-universe back to its 60′s roots was a stroke of Bryan Singer inspired genius. There’s a classic cameo, and plenty of new faces. Basically I pretty much stopped taking notes after the first 15 minutes as I just wanted to sit back and enjoy…

Damn I'm 3 for 5 so far on movies I thought were going to be good (Limitless, Lincoln Lawyer, Xmen: First Class) actually being reviewed good.


Transformers I'm still skeptical on, because of the second one (Still in love with the first one) but it's gotten some good reviews & Sucker Punch I really thought was going to be a good film but boy was I wrong...

X-Men First Class is better than you think. It does for the X-Men franchise what JJ Abrams did for Star Trek. Video blog upcoming.


Saw xmen first class today. Its fantastic. Great story, great acting, great action, and its everything you hoped it would be. need to see it again to be sure, but I think its my favorite of the series.

I kind of figured it was going to be aight. The period piece aspect was intriguing and looked like they could do a lot with it.

I am happier overall with "X-Men: First Class" than with any other film released so far in the "X-Men" franchise at Fox. And I suspect that when I see it again before my full review, I may find even more to like about it. Right now, I'm still sort of in shock at how much of it works, and how ambitious the entire thing is.

...In fact, there's nothing that I would really call "average" about this. It uses your expectations about the genre to set you up one way, then time and again, reaches for something a little bit more perverse or a little bit more eccentric or a little bit more heartfelt. "X-Men: First Class" is almost desperately sincere, and I mean that in a good way. Everyone in the film plays it like they're holding nothing back.

...this isn't a case of managed expectations, either. "X-Men: First Class" is a genuinely good movie, not just a good superhero movie. Big and bold and aggressively told, it feels to me like this is the first film in a brand-new franchise, and even the few very wicked and enjoyable references to Singer's films that are hidden in this one don't tie it down. This is ground zero, and I think Fox just got it right, really right, in a way I can't say it feels like they have on any of their Marvel films so far. With the right support, and with this film's key creative team onboard, a sequel to this could well be the "X-Men" epic we've been waiting for since day one.

I was somewhat skeptical, but Vaughn doesn't disappoint. I'll be seeing this once it comes out.
