Matthew Vaughn guides the film with a sure hand, allowing plenty of room for the dramatics to unfold without getting too dark or serious

Killer Movie Reviews

by concentrating less and less on the humanity of the story as the film progresses, and more and more of cheap tricks and flat supporting roles, [it] shortchanges itself and the audience

The best "comic book" movie I have seen in some time. Good cast, good acting, good special effects - the whole production was first class.

Good effects and themes overcome a glaring plot hole.

The characters are well-drawn and the story is compelling. The acting is solid and the special effects and action scenes are well-done.

What's next? How about a flick where the D-Day assault on the beach at Normandy is led by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Gruelingly antiseptic... an exercise in the ill-paced, the redundant, and the flat-out boring.

Lessons of Darkness

Serviceable but seems more dutiful than dynamic, and is muddled by all sorts of random false notes.

The entire film is a hackneyed exercise.

It reinvigorates the series with a sense of purpose and direction. It's exactly what the professor ordered to make the heroes of 'X-Men' seem super again.

The Scorecard Review

Fassbender, McAvoy, Lawrence, Bacon and the mutants they play make this something more than just an ordinary superhero flick.

The result is a weird and unstable experience, and I wish I could say I gave in to the lightweight escapism.

X-Men may not take your breath away - director Matthew Vaughn is a kinetic director but he lacks personality and still can't handle emotional beats - but it has enormous pulp watchability.

A marvelous achievement, and one that fixes the mistakes Bryan Singer made...

It may not be subtle, but it is a return to what made the series so good in the first place [and is] the first X-Men movie to contain some truly spectacular action/special-effects set pieces.

It's evident how much detail and time the CG team has invested into making the audience believe what they see is real.

Jeff Meyers
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

..it's director Vaughn who emerges as the true hero here (the less said of January Jones' leaden performance, the better), using a breathless pace and off-kilter compositions to mask the story's many gaps in logic.
