      Jarrah E Hodge Bitch Media The acting, special effects, and writing were excellent, except possibly the two times Xavier tries to hit on women in bars by saying they have "groovy mutation[s]". Jan 7, 2021 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express First Class can safely be watched by first-timers, but old faithfuls of the franchise will get a little more, tracing the origins of their favourite characters. Rated: 3/5 Apr 2, 2019 Full Review Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online If you didn't see the previous movies, you may not be able to appreciate some of the subtle references, but that won't make you enjoy the movie any less. Check it out. Rated: B Sep 8, 2017 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... Jennifer Lawrence is superb as the young blue-skinned shape-changer Mystique, trying to reconcile her identity crisis with Xavier’s sometimes oblivious idealism. Sep 9, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review A summer movie where audiences will leave talking about the performances and the ideas, not the mindless battles. Rated: 3.5/4 Jun 7, 2023 Full Review Cory Woodroof Lumination Network This is an immensely fun, engaging, stylish superhero film that I fully recommend for your viewing pleasure.

      Marcus M This movie is great. Professor X and Magneto are fleshed out really well in the story, and a lot of the unknown characters really get to shine in this film. It's great, but not on the level of other films that I've seen. There's an emotional payoff at the end, but it didn't exert any emotion out of me. The plot was also incredible, and the visuals and look to the film really shines. This film is almost-perfect. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review Adrian G Asombroso, la verdad esto es refrescante, después de la anterior película. sinceramente aveces la veo un poco simple, pero sigue siendo una buena película de mutantes, lo que más me gusta es la relación de Magneto y charles Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Jonathan H This X-men "reboot" (if you call it that) was excellent in the theater. It nailed everything! Great visuals, great sound, a moving score, and casting the perfect actors for the younger version of these well-known characters. It had been a while since I'd first watched this so it was time for another re-watch, and it is just as entertaining & moving. There is probably more emotion throughout this film than in most of its X-men counterparts. The chemistry and dynamics between McAvoy & Fassbender is true movie magic. The characters are humanized instead of just being goofy comic book personas. You can relate to many of them and understand their thoughts & feelings. Kevin Bacon was a great villain, too. Overall, this film holds up very, very well, and I found the story even more interesting with the tie-ins to real-life events. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Gabriel F Fantastic prequel. 👍🏻 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/24 Full Review Idan Charles L A welcome return for a wonderful franchise Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Mariana R la mejor película de superhéroes de hecho la única Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
