X-Men: First Class ★★½

I like the X-Men films, even though I think I probably shouldn't. Heard great things about this prequel, and it was certainly good fun, but seemed to lack some of the intellectual clout of the others, and some of the casting seemed a bit off. MacAvoy and Fassbender both fine, but some of the others were a bit limp. On the plus-side... Kevin Bacon.
