X-Men, First Class is not quite first-class
Just when you thought it was the end to the X-men series, another one comes along. Unfortunately, too much of a good thing can’t be good for anyone. That includes movie-makers.
“X-Men: First Class” rewinds the clock to when it all began.
The prequel set in 1960s, tells the story of how both Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Eric Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) met, became best friends and then archenemies as Professor X and Magneto as seen in the later series, that came much earlier in the movie timeline if you haven’t been following the series.
Confused? Don’t be. “X-Men: First Class” give a clear idea of how X-Men began, while filling in missing pieces in the series such as why Professor X is stuck in a wheelchair and just how old Wolverine could be – a natural reason to have Hugh Jackman make an appearance alongside Rebecca Romjin who reprises her role as Mystique.
