After two not so good X-Men films in a row I can report we're back on First Class
Though then on the opposite spectrum we are introduced to a young and much different Charles Xavier than we're used to now played by James McAvoy (Wanted) and he's walking. Not just walking but drinking and attempting to use clever pickup lines on girls in bars.
In these two or so opening scenes I was hooked because I knew here was the X-Men film I never knew I wanted but I needed. To see the two main characters evolve at a young age is much more interesting as to when there fighting with the whole team.
After all that praise I must point out the most annoying thing that I struggled with in the original X-Men movie the most as well. 'Goon Mutants' or simply the mutants that the bad guy has that never have any character in them at all but are on screen enough to deserve it. Please give these guys some personality, some lines, some something that'll make them seem less like simply 'Goon Mutants'
