Blunt Reviews Presents: X-Men: First Class (2011)

first class

This is the only X-Men without Bryan Singer as director that wasn’t a complete disaster. Because I care about the X-Men franchise I would rather see it handed to a director like Matthew Vaughn who has proven he is a talented filmmaker with respect for the source material, than to see it handed to someone like Gavin Hood who couldn’t direct traffic. This film wasn’t anything showstopping, but it was a half decent action flick that introduced us to a new side to characters we’ve loved for years. It’s quite cheesy in places but it could have been much worse.
