X-Men: First Class ★★★½

There are some great moments in X-Men: First Class - in particular, Michael Fassbender's superb performance throughout - and the 1960s James Bond aesthetic is a unique and clever interjection into the comic book movie genre. These various elements really make the movie what it is, and allow it to shine in spite of some flaws and detractions. On the whole, the film is a clever experiment that succeeds at introducing a new chapter into an existing franchise.
