VIEWED: X-Men: First Class

My recommendation for this one was...

I heard through the grapevine that Dr. Manhattan and Mystique were dating.  Big screen viewing.  

I finally got around to seeing X-Men: First Class.  I loved the 60's feel and the historical context.  The Cuban missile crisis stuff was cool.  It had all the elements, drama and acting that I expected, and brought some context to the franchise, but it just didn't deliver on the action.  While it had it's moments, it didn't live up to my comic book movie adaptation devotion. 

So, what would I say to the makers?  It isn't you, it's me... Was anyone else disappointed in this one?


  1. Nope. Quite pleased with this one. Not sure it was true down to every detail of the storyline, but its always hard to match details perfectly with remakes.

    Did think the Americans and Russians deciding to just fire all missiles on the mutants made no sense. I just can't see that. Americans aren't Attilah the Hun.

  2. I meant its hard to match details perfectly with "prequals" not "remakes."

  3. Hey Lightening, I understood. Thanks for the comments. Always appreciated.
