The Cinematheque Reviews: X-Men: First Class

Being a self-admitted comic book nerd from way back (though these days my reading of them is much more sporadic) I can honestly say, even though this new X-Men: First Class plays a bit fast and loose with the long and convoluted history and iconography of the comic created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, it is a fun piece of pop entertainment.  This remark may seem rather snarky (just my natural way of putting things perhaps) but is meant in total sincerity.  Anyway, my quite long-winded review of said fun piece of pop entertainment (there I go again appearing quite snarky) is up and running at The Cinematheque.

It may not be subtle, but it is a return to what made the series so good in the first place [and is] the first X-Men movie to contain some truly spectacular action/special-effects set pieces. Also, McAvoy and Fassbender are great as Professor X and Magneto. Good Review! Check out mine when you can!
