This movie is trying to be (and mostly getting away with being) two films at once -- a Magneto origin film, and a prequel film about the titular First Class of X-Men, both of which would have been better off getting their own film. But this is the film we got, and whenever it is the Magneto origin, it is very, very good. Sadly, whenever it is the First Class film, it is bland and forgettable, stuffed with minor characters you never get neither the chance nor a reason to care about (and indeed, the next film in the series write almost all of them out again anyway). The result is an uneven film which begins spectacularly, drags in the middle, and then, thankfully, manages a decent-but-not-quite-great finale. ( )

Brainless, but fun. I can't help noticing that no one involved in making this movie gives a fuck that it's supposed to be set in 1962.
