X-Men: First Class

Sci-Fi . Adventure . Science Fiction . Action

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were arch-enemies, they were closest of friends, working together with other mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known.

More Info:
  • Justin Chang

    After undergoing some unfortunate mutations in recent years, a beleaguered Marvel movie property gets the smart, stylish prequel it deserves in X-Men: First Class.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    In this cheerfully perverse origin tale of Magneto, Professor X and their mutant team, Vaughn delivers a fireworks display of action, smarts and fun, plus a touch of class from actors who can really act.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Most of the actors live their roles, and Fassbender (Rochester in the last "Jane Eyre") is superb as the wolflike, undisciplined assassin.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    McAvoy and Fassbender are a casting triumph. These two have, yes, real star magnetism, both individually and together: They're both cool and intense, suave and unaffected, playful and dead serious about their grand comic-book work.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    It's not the artistry of X-Men: First Class that's particularly striking; though it's finely crafted, the film feels less the product of a visionary director than of the Marvel movies machine working at maximum efficiency.

    NPR Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This prequel draws new energy from supersmart casting, plus the shrewd notion of setting the beginnings of the X-Men saga in the early 1960s.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Audacious, confident and fueled by youthful energy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    At least Erik/Magneto, as played by Michael Fassbender, is, well, magnetic.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    That's partly why X-Men: First Class is such fanboy fun, as the script departs from official Marvel lore to invent a whole new "origin story" for the mutant ensemble.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This X- Men is indeed first class: an exciting, bold and thoroughly enjoyable summer blockbuster.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    First Class happily delivers on the escapism and rich narrative texture the best of its predecessors have promised.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Fassbender plays Magneto as a supercool assassin with a completely understandable set of beefs. I spent most of the movie rooting for him, and would watch a "Magneto, 1960s Nazi Hunter" sequel in a second.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Another crowd-pleasing comic-book film designed to bring in new fans while gratifying the old ones.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    An uncommonly polished and sophisticated superhero movie.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Director Matthew Vaughn, who did last year's delightful "Kick-Ass," doesn't do witty this time around, but he does keep up a spiffing pace while making the action blaze.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Perfectly fine summer folderol, epic enough on its own terms if not quite big enough to expand beyond its genre and matter to people who find it difficult to care about characters who spit gobs of flaming phlegm. I realize there are fewer and fewer of us, but we're a hardy band and stubborn.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    X-Men: First Class still sings the praises of Marvel Studios' marvelous quality control of comic book movies. It's good, clean summer movie fun where the money they spend is up on the screen - with actors and effects - so that we won't mind spending our money on it.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    So while X-Men: First Class at first takes its source material with just the right amount of self-deprecating seriousness, it founders in the second half, when it becomes overburdened with squirrelly plot mechanics and an excess of self-evident dialogue.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    With its spy-on-spy globetrotting, old-fashioned villains, flirty but prematurely swinging minis and fan-boy bits (look for an eye-blink-fast tribute to "Basic Instinct" and a cameo from the cult actor Michael Ironside), the whole enterprise has an agreeable lightness, no small thing, given its rapidly moving parts.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    X-Men: First Class isn't anywhere close to being a genre classic like "Spider-Man 2" or "The Dark Knight," but it is good enough to rejuvenate a franchise stuck on idle.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Todd Gilchrist

    What the film does well, however, is grasp the tone and rhythm of the original comic books.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    It's all vastly superior to Brett Ratner's scorched-earth "X-Men: The Last Stand," of course.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The easiest way to summarize my reaction to X-Men: First Class is with a shrug.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    X-Men: First Class is a mutant movie, half fun and half fearsome. For those who have developed an immunity to fanboy hype, the contradictory traits may seem to weaken rather than strengthen this beast, but readers of the "X-Men" comics will hail an origin story as satisfying as "Thor."

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    An elaborate origins story with more datelines than an issue of Condé Nast Traveler (Oxford! Miami! Argentina! Poland!), X-Men: First Class has some fun trying to explain how Professor X, Magneto, and all those mopey mutants came to be.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    X-Men: First Class is competent weekend entertainment. It is not a great comic book movie, like "Spider-Man 2," or a bad one, like "Thor." It is not in 3-D, which is a mercy.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Still, the deadliest single element in this film can be traced not to Bacon's character, but to composer Henry Jackson, whose music seems determined to kill us all with waves of dramatic nothingness.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ben Sachs

    Like Bryan Singer's X2 (2003), this fifth entry in the X-Men franchise is noteworthy for its gay-rights subtext and for its noted actors delivering comic book dialogue with Shakespearean portent. Otherwise it's indistinguishable from most other recent blockbusters.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It's big, bright, savvy, and so expansive you'll undoubtedly leave feeling you got your money's worth.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    All you'd expect from an X-Men film (or spin-off, or prequel), but not all you'd hope for. It smacks of rush and compromise, but there's thankfully enough to make you feel optimistic about the series' future once more.

    Empire Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    Uneven, occasionally silly, true, but it's also an improvement over 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    These ludicrous but endearing moments of bro-bonding are all that sets this otherwise stock-issue superhero movie apart from its mass-produced brethren.

    Slate Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I was startled to look up the running time and discover that X-Men: First Class is only 104 minutes; the second half is so clunky it feels much longer. Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    It's just another franchise nonstarter to toss in the superstore superhero deal bin.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Too bad that First Class torpedoes its lofty intentions with flights of idiocy so wrongheaded as to be almost endearing.

    Time Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    A tedious two-plus hours. There were such possibilities in the origins idea.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jaime N. Christley

    Despite his apparent comfort with F/X-heavy projects, the obligations of duty to the brand are too much for Matthew Vaughn's strange, singular voice, which rarely has the chance to shape the film unmolested by a curiously bland script.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    A cameo from an old-school X-Man only serves to remind how stylish and witty the first installment was a decade ago. Lacking a single memorable joke or striking image, First Class is as perfunctory and passionless as would-be franchise resurrections get.
