In the 1960s, superpowered humans Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr work together to find others like them, but Erik's vengeful pursuit of an ambitious mutant who ruined his life causes a schism to divide them.
The human government develops a cure for mutations, and Jean Gray becomes a darker uncontrollable persona called the Phoenix who allies with Magneto, causing escalation into an all-out battle for the X-Men.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN.Written by

(at around 8 mins) When a young Erik gets angry and starts destroying the lab room through the glass in Shaw's office, you see the metal table with the one large, central, cylindrical leg, moved, flipped over and flung twice. See more »
Mother. What are you... I thought you were a burglar.
I didn't mean to scare you, darling. I was just getting a snack. Go back to bed. What's the matter? Go on, back to bed.I, I'll make you a hot chocolate.
Who are you? And what have you done with my mother?
[telepathically in her mind]
My mother has never set foot in this kitchen in her life. And she certainly never made me a hot chocolate, unless you count ordering the maid to do it.

Part of the closing credits take place in a sequence of X-symbols, chromosomes and DNA strands (reminiscent of the opening credits to Dr. No (1962)). See more »
I believe most people understand the concept of the x-men by now. If you have seen the previous 3 x-men, you will definitely say this blows them away completely.
I have got to say, I found the previous 3 x-men films really boring. This prequel definitely has the edge and the director got it right! It follows how the x-men started and who these two main characters are.
The female characters are really sexy! Really sexy! I can't believe the cleavage in this film. Where did they find these characters.
This is a definite watchable film.
Anyway, without boring people - please watch it! It is on the same wavelength of batman alike. Very nice and good film at it's best!
