    The second half was awesome. The first half was a snooze fest and Magneto not killing Kevin Bacon in the beginning made no sense. And parts of the plot didn't add up with previous movies (yes, I am referring to the ones First Class's director directed, not the others he specifically said he was disregarding). So, it was prequel and also somewhat of a reboot but ended up just being a reboot because of the plot holes. And so many characters were just so worthless and/or forgettable.

    So, overall it was an okay movie.

    And lol at Nostalgia chick and her friend thinking the world's oldest profession wasn't around in the 60's. You girls had some REALLY sheltered childhoods.

    I only agree with part of it. I think that him not even trying to kill Kevin Bacon was stupid (honestly I think having him attempt to kill Bacon then just cut out would have been better), and I agree with the character assessment (notable exceptions are Shaw, Magneto, Mistque, Beast, Emma Frost, Professor X, Moira MacTaggart, and Oliver Platt). I think that was the film's biggest flaw. If they had instead of Angel (bug girl), Storm; Instead of Banshee, Siren; Instead of Riptide, Sabertooth; instead of Darwin, Styker's Son (the catatonic guy from X2); instead of Azazle (sp?), Vanisher (X-Men villain from way back, mercenary with teleportation powers), and just completely wrote Havok out of the movie, it would have been a lot more interesting. Also maybe include Magda (Magneto's late wife), as the reason he doesn't turn evil at the end of the movie... I want my sequel bait.

    Other than that, I really loved the movie.

    It's Magnetos helmet, they had to get it in there somehow.

    Also no, the movie's major flaw is in it's complete sexism and turn on a dime allegiances. Also the "dead bro walking syndrome" well into the 2010s is inexcusable! Of course being from a country where women are practically unable to file sexual harassment charges, maybe the sexist treatment of women in this movie is difficult for you to understand.

    Actually the portrayal of women in that movie is pretty accurate. I'm actually surprised they had a Moira in the CIA for that movie.

    You have to remember this movie takes place in the 60's where women were just starting to actively fight for their rights to equality (not to be confused with the right to vote fought for in the 1920's)

    Plus, Emma was a stripper and the HellFire Club was always portrayed as a "Gentleman's Club" in the original comics.

    The only thing I disagree with is how the movie makes Emma and Mystic nude when they transform. In Emma's case it makes no sense given her mutation (which shouldn't affect her clothing) and in Mystic's case, she's just supposed to have blue skin so she's really just a naked woman running around in the end. The comics always had her clothed in a special dress.

    So what's the excuse for the previous movies?

    You realise that this movie takes place in the 60's right? A time where sexism was basically the norm? Would you like it more if it completely ignored that part of history and presented the 60's as the pinnacle of gender equality?

    I agree that there were many reasons the movie was flawed, was uncomfortable to watch and just made me want to punch the screenwriter/director immediately afterward (Unfortunately I watched it with white straight 30 something boys who didn't get why it was rile-worthy)

    But to boil it down to just one of the points, if Mystique had slept with Charles she would have been an X-Man. Really, really movie?

    Must go watch Thor, Green Lantern or Captain America and re-find my happy place

    Just because we wish it didn't happen, doesn't mean we can make it go away when you have a movie that takes place in that time period. It would be like doing a movie that takes place during slavery and saying " there will be no slavers and they say nigger in my movie. " Yeah I frown upon such a period but it happened. To ignore historical facts dishonors the people who strove to change the injustices of the world and tried to make the world better.

    And I loled at Benzaie's 5 second movie. That was funny, man.

    Was that a joke from Family Guy? Because if you wanted this to be funny, the very last thing you should add is a joke from Family Guy that isn't so much a joke as it is a Pop culture reference that is only funny because the viewer thinks "Ah hah they're talking about Kevin Bacon, ha hah hah"

    my two least favorite parts in the movie were the two of them
  • HankMan  - NO!
    No No No! The Kevin Bacon does NOT suck! That is six degrees of bullsh*t right there.
  • Ameberr1675  - YES!!
    buhahaha! Loved it, I honestly didn't like this movie, glad to see I'm no the only one.
  • Bradman1978
    Thank you, I thought I was the only one who thought it sucked.

    The broke physics and powers way too much, as well as, Xazvior telling off the younger mutants for a little party and steam releasing, when 6 minutes ago he was chugging yards of lager and picking up women.
  • Pazuzu42  - On the other hand...
    I strongly disagree about your criticism of Xavier. I was a moment of character development. For the first time in any of the films, we saw Xavier as a hypocrite. First to condemn and first to break his own rules. However, notice how he became more serious and goal orientated after the attack made the situation much more real. I don't think you can fault the movie for character growth.
  • VinnyBastos  - About Xavier being a hypocrite...

    I really didn't felt it, 'cause I too thought it was character development, nut beside that, in the comics Xavier was always kind of a prick. A good guy, but very manipulative sometimes. That's the reason why Scott left the X-Men and started his own group. (I don't know if that is still going on, kinda stopped reading the comics for a while).

    I detest the way Mystique looks in these movies. I miss the flowing red hair, smooth skin, & white dress.
