X-Men: First Class

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

Written by Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz

2011, USA

Bryan Singer’s X-Men (2000) was arguably the moment where comic book movies grew up and is largely responsible for the endless slew of adaptations that siege our multiplexes year after year. Certainly his 2003 follow up X2: Mutants United showed a level of maturity and austere charm that the genre is rarely afforded and is hailed to this day by most sane people as possibly the finest graphic novel film of all time. It’s a shame, then, that Singer handed the reigns over to the amicable but far less talented Brett Ratner (Red Dragon, Rush Hour) for the finale The Last Stand, which turned out to be a fun but ultimately muddled and unsatisfying end to a stellar series.

Five years later and Singer is back. Some may lament him being reduced to producer detail »
