December 30, 2011
One of the five worst films of 2011. Inexplicably acclaimed, incredibly dumb.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 29, 2011
A first-rate action film with great special effects and an effective origin tale to tell--perhaps the best of the X-Men series so far.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

With so many characters to introduce or reintroduce, Vaughn has a lot of ground to cover, and he does it in a way that at once feels retro and modern.

October 20, 2011
There's something to be respected about a film that doesn't spend most of its time in mindless action
Full Review | Original Score: B
October 7, 2011
As X-Men films go, this one gets the job done and is certainly better than Last Stand or Wolverine. But there are still just too darn many X-Men.
September 15, 2011
While it never reaches the intelligence or character richness of the first two X-Men films, it's still the superior superhero spectacle of 2011 to date.
July 15, 2011
As a story of the founding of the mutant academy, First Class delivers on the double meaning of its title, twice.

In Matthew Vaughn's pitch-perfect, fluid, sparklingly edited movie, we learn about demons. And wouldn't you know it? It's all about Jewish revenge.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
July 9, 2011
Its attributes and weaknesses can be broken down into two categories: the relationship between Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and everything else
Full Review | Original Score: 46/100
July 6, 2011
In a summer unfortunately glutted with superhero movies, every one an origins story, X-Men: First Class not only eclipses its competition, but also each of its franchise predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
July 6, 2011
First Class might even be too good for its predecessors' comfort. An unintended consequence of its sure handed grip on character is the retroactive tarnishing of the original films.

Not only the best X-Men film to date, but the best superhero flick yet.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 27, 2011
Looks and feels like a very cheesy Cold War-era B movie...
June 26, 2011
It speaks to the pathos in front of and behind the camera that so much is done with so lethargic a script.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
June 22, 2011
Smartly grounds the genre's pop-fiction and flashy effects in an era of clashing superpowers and political paranoia. And refreshingly refuses to say it's so super being human.
June 22, 2011
January Jones ... in a James-Bond-style white catsuit, probably sums up the tone of the film as it should have been the whole way through.
Full Review | Original Score: 2 1/2
June 22, 2011
Wow. That was really, really good.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 16, 2011
Easily chimes in as the best, most engaging and visually impressive X-film so far.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 13, 2011
Xavier's mutants go all prequel on John F. Kennedy's presidency.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.0/4.0
June 12, 2011
Instead of being all about people discovering or earning their new powers, X-Men: First Class is all about the relationships. And it is a much better movie for it.
