X Men: First Class

We are the future Charles. Not them-from X Men.

I am a fan of X Men right from the day I watched the film on TV. So when X Men:First Class released, I didn’t want to miss the fun. Especially Magneto.

So there I was, on the second day it released in my city(we don’t have many good theaters here and good films don’t last forever).  I wasn’t disappointed.

What a film! Fantastic. I was equally thrilled to see the theater houseful with kids and parents alike and a couple of guys like me with an eccentric liking .Shame that they are dubbing it in the local languages. One ought to watch it in the original language to get the pun and sarcasm right. I don’t blame the dubbed version watchers-only one thing-improve your language.

The prequel keeps its pace very well in relation to the previous films and is faithful. We get to see young Xavier, Mystic, Eric et al. Delightful! And the line that seperates Xavier and Eric are well brought out by the narration and visualization, till the very last where with Xavier injured, Eric takes his own stand and forms the Brotherhood of Mutants-as Magneto(the last scene is a must watch)

The film is not just a film alone but imparts good values, if watched closely. If you had watched the entire set of X Men films-X Men, X2-X Men United, X Men The Last Stand, X Men Origins-Wolverine, and this one, you will find how against all adversaries, some mutants keep their cool and go on to help humanity in a great way while the others, equally gifted as they are, are doomed to fail(the last scone in X Men Last Stand where Eric is all alone pushing his chess pieces is a stunning scene)

Yes. It is a good one and you will love it. Do take time to watch all of them. And relax.

Here’s a scene I loved from X Men Last Stand for you:
