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.
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

During a rehearsal, James McAvoy's double, along with all the other doubles, walked on set. The sight of James's double caused him to interrupt rehearsal, walk over to his double, and bear hug him in excitement. This amused Jennifer Lawrence and she said, "Why are you hugging your double like you know him?" James's double on this film was also his double a year prior on The Conspirator (2010). 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.

SPOILER: The X-Films' title sequences features a weapon used by the villain of each film, backed by the X-Men's Cerebro device.
In this film the title appears on the side of the Nazi coin Shaw gives to young Erik Lensherr, which he later uses against Shaw. Also, as this is a prequel, Cerebro does not appear. See more »

Best Xmen film yet!
Xmen: First Class is simply fantastic. Strong emotion and explosive action. The acting is top notch. Delivery from every actor is at it's best, more so from Mystique, Beast, Xavier and Magneto.
The story is more character based than action, however the action sequences are still superb. Personally i'd have liked to of seen it being a 15 and have a more adult but it wasn't a big issue. Also some more background story from the bad super's would have been good but again this wasn't too much of an issue and would leave some nice room for upcoming xmen movies.
I don't want to say too much but to break it down... Go see this film no matter what you are into. There is something for everyone. 9/10 easy
