    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Okay this is outstanding compared with the previous film. 

    I was massively pleased to see the New X-Men era costumes, they look fantastic. 

    Of course it’s not the same story as the comic but it has many familiar notes. Xavier’s arrogance and the idea that he might have been manipulating his friends; fantastic. 

    Raven’s death was unexpected and brutal. 

    This is the best First Class era film. They ended on a high note.

    Ugh. This film is way too long. 

    All the references to say ‘hey this is 1983’ are painfully over the top. I read x-men in 83 and it did not look like this. Seriously It’s like the Wedding Singer. 

    I only watched it yesterday but how come the real Stryker has Wolverine now when it was just Raven disguised as Stryker at the end of the previous film?

    It’s not completely terrible but this film is dull. It’s a special skill to make these characters dull. It takes itself too seriously. 

    The only good things are the cast and Raven’s continuing redemption.
