This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I can't tell if the artfulness of the reboot is actually the most stunning aspect of this movie?
While my ten-year-old self wanted this time traveling saga back in the day, instead, I got a solid, modern X-men flick with a little too much Jennifer Lawrence and not enough Michael Fassbender. Eh, who am I kidding? There's never enough Michael Fassbender.
In the original First Class, Fassbender and McAvoy go on a road trip looking for mutants. Now, that's the movie I'm still waiting for. More banter and laughs, and less despair. Quicksilver was a breath of fresh air in this melancholy affair.
