First off lets just say this movie is worth seeing. Great action and characters with some depth. That said, much like J.J. Abrams' Star Trek is just full of F@!k You moments for any real X-Men fans (and I'm not talking about fanatics, but any one who once picked up a X-men comic and thought oh that was cool), but is still a great action / adventure movie. But unlike the J.J. Abrams piece the characters have a depth and all of the ones with speaking parts are interesting. Kevin Bacon does a very good job especially as his 1944 version. The 60's super spy style (In Like Flint), just oozes from every seen. The cameo's are great and surprising. There a some really bad movie Cliches (one that today might be considered racist). If this had come out first (before the original X-Men) even with the "F@!k Yous" it would probably be considered the best of the series. The only other problems (and I'm sure these aren't spoilers) is that there is no Stan Lee cameo and NO end trailer sting.
