X-Men: First Class

I just saw this movie today and loved it. It's set during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the plot is riveting and fun with just the right amount of humour and drama. This documents how Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) met and developed their friendship that is often alluded to during the original X-Men trilogy. The two lead actors are superb, and Fassbender is very sexy as a bad-*** Magneto who shows surprising emotional depth. We get to see why he becomes what he is in the original X-Men trilogy.

Bonus: Hugh Jackman makes a cameo as Wolverine! I almost squee-ed out loud in the cinema when I saw him. Also, Rebecca Romjin, who played Mystique in the original trilogy, has a cameo as well.

Can´t wait to see it It opened yesterday here and it has great reviews already. Although everyone was talking about a terrible geographic mistake concerning a place from my country which appears in the film. So funny

I was surprised by how much I loved this movie. After the last 2 X-Men movies I thought this franchise was done with but I would rank this one up with X1 and X2 and James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender were fantastic in their roles.

I want to see this so bad, but with my new work schedule it makes it so hard to do anything.

I really enjoyed the film! I didn't know who Michael Fassbender was before seeing this, and he is quite compelling! He made an excellent Magneto.

My cousin and I both agreed if you're a fan then you need to see it, the cast was fantastic! The movie and story were just as great.

Magneto is played by Michael Fassbender and apparently he's going to play Mr Rochester in an adaptation of Jane Eyre. Or maybe he's already done it...?

I don't know if you're interested, but if you've ever seen the movie 300, he plays a guy named Stellios.

Ugh, I made it through 30 mins of 300 and that was it for me. I couldn't get into it, which is sad because I love that era. The movie was...well I have nothing nice to say I will keep it silent haha
