X-Men First Class

Director: Matthew Vaughn, Main cast: James McAvoyMichael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence
Every myth has its origin and, after Lucas, everyone does the prequel thing. That said, this story of the X-Men beginnings and how they saved the world from nuclear holocaust is pretty good, mostly due to the casting choices: McAvoy and Fassbender are great younger version of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen and make believable that they were good friends before being enemies. Special mention goes also to Jennifer Lawrence as a young, conflicted Mystique.
Kevin Bacon is clearly enjoying himself playing the villain “du jour”. There are also a couple of interesting cameos — 7.5/10
