X-Men: First Class – Review

X-Men: First Class (12A)

Reviewed by Rachel Geeson

Score  3 / 5

If you’re going to see this film then I would advise that you see the other three films first, however you can still understand the main plot if you have not seen the previous movies. The film begins with the same opening scene from the first X-Men film, at a German concentration camp where Erik Lensherr, later to be known as Magneto, uses his mutant powers for the first time. Meanwhile in New York, the young Charles Xavier, later to be known as Professor X, who has telepathic powers meets a homeless young shape-shifter named Raven who he is overjoyed to realise that he is not the only one that is “different”. Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together; with other mutants to stop the greatest threat the world has other known.

The mutants that join Professor X and Magneto are both new and old, with characters such as Banshee and Darwin and the recognisable character of Dr. Henry “Hank” McCoy. In the process, a rift between the friends opens and begins the war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men. For X-Men fans this film gives you answers to how the memorable characters from the film’s franchise meet and create their identities. As with all X-Men films there are great special effects throughout and a line-up of amazing actors that make the film good to watch.

Stars: 3 out of 5
