Saw it tonight. In a nutshell, cheesy, but fun. Gotta say I'm shocked to see so many people rating this higher than X2 (my all time favorite superhero movie.) I found X2 to be a much better written and acted movie. First Class is rather ham-fisted by comparison. Doesn't quite have the coolness and elegance of X2. But don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it a lot and liked seeing the origin of things from the past films (despite some continuity errors
) and it was great seeing Professor X and Magneto in their prime. LOVED the Wolverine cameo. Totally unexpected and hilarious.
My ranking of the films:
Oh yeah, I don't read the comics so... What's the relationship between Azazel and Nightcrawler, considering their similarities?
