Movie: X-Men First Class

In this fifth installment, which is a prequel, we meet a young Professor X (James MacAvoy) and young Magneto (Michael Fassbender) before they become mutant superheroes and turn into enemies. The setting is the 1940s through the 1960s … in the middle of the Cold War. This movie has all the elements of a big summer movie: Great action sequences, nice special effects, young actors and a wonderful human element. The Flick-o-meter (a non-scientific analysis meter based on my years as a critic)  gives “X-Men: First Class” five out of five.

So now you know before you go. See my video review (above) for more details on this film, then head to the movies!
