I finally watched the latest X-Man saga which technically is the first one – the story of how it all began starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. McAvoy portrays Charles Xavier who is the good and Fassbender is the young Magneto. It’s funny how they both get a long in the movie, as two friends, brothers even and it makes the other movies rather interesting.
Despite the action and the explosions, I mostly enjoyed the story-lines although there always could be much more to a story but here’s a short summary of all the plots that the First Class had (one sentence summaries).
James McAvoy – a mind-reader who has an inner strive to find all the mutants and show them the “way”.
Michael Fassbender – a human magnet who looks revenge for his mother.
Kevin Bacon – who wants a mutant world while Fassbender is out to get him.
Zoe Kravitz – a butterfly who hasn’t got a back-bone.
Jennifer Lawrence – a body-shaper who is in love but makes the wrong choice in the end.
Nicholas Hoult – a smart animal who can’t accept himself.
And in short, this was the movie – every little story-line that had some meaning to First Class and some I even enjoyed more than the main story. Putting that a side I think that the cast was better than I imagined, I kind of enjoyed the McAvoy and Fassbender together – they make a lovely couple. As for the points, it’s hard to say cause I waited for this so long and no after all that waiting I seem a bit disappointed but not enough for a low score. I’m thinking 3,5 out of 5 for movie itself but 4 out of 5 for the cast – I just can’t help myself not liking the guys being all mutated and all – just lovely.
