I loved it. I thing the score really helped pull the emotion of various scenes adding to the intensity, Michael Fassbender's accent seemed to go in different directions. Otherwise the film really put forward a touching, light heartted introduction to the X-Men's origins with plenty of humorous moments.
Although there are some bad parts to this movie and some corny lines, I still really enjoyed myself while watching this movie, and was at the edge of my seat during most of the action. Although this movie didn't have The Wolverine in it, I was fine with it while watching the movie and didn't bring the movie down in any way.
With Matthew Vaughn at the helm, X-Men: First Class is a classy, fun time that brings the best out of it's strong cast. The action scenes and dialogue pop with a ferocity, and breaths life into a incredibly engaging storyline.
It just works. And there are few scenes as dramatic and effective in any comic adaptations as the one with Magneto in the bar in Argentina. The casting is superb - although, something was a little odd about Mr. Bacon.
This movie totally rebooted the franchise, in my opinion. It was so well made, and had such a great plot. The production did a great job creating a 60's environment. Everything about it clicked, it was such a good time, and is totally reawatchable.
