    Please, consider reviewing other movies. If you have a youtube channel to do so I'd love a link.

    I liked the movie but there is just something about X-men movies that just makes their plot holes extremely easy to spot as if it was directed by Michael Bay. For example Mystique turns into Shaw to distract Azaezel however she had never seen his picture or his silver helmet....

    Havoc hand't even been born yet

    Sebastian Shaw was never a Nazi, that experimented with/on Mutants, Mr. Sinister however, was.

    Magneto getting his helm from Shaw was lame

    Darwin's power doesn't make any sense. Adaptation means you adapt to your environment. So him growing gills made sense but him adapting to absorb a bullet? Nope, shouldn't have worked that way.

    Angel the Pixie that shoots flaming hairballs was lame, so many much better characters to have chosen

    Emma Frost is too young to have been there too

    Beasts makeup after he mutated was LAAAAAAAME!!!!!!! >

    Magneto did NOT help build Cerebro

    Mystique was a little ho, falling first for Charles, next for Beast, and lastly for Magneto

    All in all it was an enjoyable movie but like the OP stated, it was NOT made with fans of the comics in mind.

    So if you've seen the movie, and have noticed the many parts of it where it's completely against canon, post them here, and say why you didn't like it, or why you didn't mind it. I'm not going to post any in the first post, and many may include spoilers.


    Edit: Since many can only think in black and white, let me emphasize something. No one expects a movie to follow the comics completely, but I would expect at least an effort to stay true to the characters. There's a middle-ground between being 100% true to the comics and disregarding everything that doesn't suit the movie execs desires.
    The superhero movies are supposed to appeal to people who have no knowledge of comic book related heroes whatsoever.

    Iam utterly fed up with all the Super Hero movies. Its just Hollywood trying to make money off a cash cow. And comics were huge at one point and still remain a big market. So they bought up all the rights to the Super Hero characters back when the first Spiderman made a huge success and were just waiting on the production companies to shovel them out. I mean the Green Lantern, come on. I apologize if your a fan but I remember growing up and thinking the two weakest Heros were The Flash and the Green Lantern. Nobody I knew liked them and they seemed like a joke Hero to me. Now they spent 300 million dollars to produce a movie about it with Van Wilderer as the Hero. It just seems stupid to me, people ran out of ideas for movies so now their buying the rights to comics and video games that people love so they can make a movie about it and squeeze what little money is left in it out of it.

    You guys know this movie was originally intended to be a prequel to the previous X-Men trilogy, which was very different from the comics?

    Stop acting like everything before the Iron Man movie happened, despite how bad they might be.

    So because I'm critical of this movie, I don't enjoy anything?

    Well, I'm happy I at least entertain you. Do you mind actually specifying where I've made "exaggerations and conspiracy style logical leaps"?

    Most folks that have seen it have said it is much better than the train wreck that was the wolverine move. I haven't yet cause to be honest, I'm just a little tired of xmen movies at this point

    It was a decent-good movie, much, much, much better than that pondscum scraped from a boot and put on film that was the Wolverine movie. Some of the characters were just...no....but overall, they were relatively faithful. McAvoy actually pulled off a decent young Charles Xavier, goofy at first, but you could see him maturing in the film, which is only natural. Probably the best of the Xmen series so far (it gets major bonus points for not having Halle Berry in it, one day, she'll realise she's not cut out for acting and retire...and on that day, humanity will throw a bloody party to celebrate), and that scene in the bar was worth the entrance fee alone...you know the scene i'm talking about.

    I cant believe this many people Liked that god awful pile of shit Wolverine origins movie. That movie was the exact opposite of a good comic book film, the script was stupid retarded, the acting (Hugh did ok) was horrific, and the CGI-action sequences where one of the worst I have ever witnessed in any action film. They completely butchered Sabretooth,Deadpool, and Gambit, and tried to make Wolverine 1000x stronger than he actually is.

    First class was good in my opinion. Sure they tried to cram way to many characters in at once, but overall they did a pretty nice job with it. I will say that it is the best Xmen film yet (Although Xmen 2 comes in at a very close second), but they still need to work on a better comic adaption.

    I had to watch it with friends and didn't expect too much as i had not seen any of the X-Men movies nor read the comics. However, it turned out to be quite nice so I wanted to watch the prequels as well. They in turn weren't as good as I had expected both technically and in terms of plot so I as a superficial X-Men viewer consider First Class to be the best one (though I haven't watched Origins yet).

    What? The movie was terrible, but Sabretooth was actually really well done. Don't give me any crap about him not being Logan's brother in the comics, the core of the character is still there untouched.

    You can make a film inspired by the story, or you can make a film that is a reproduction of the story.

    But don't ever try to rewrite the story.
