I thought this was pretty good! Lots of fun and keeps it up until the last act where I felt it lost a little steam. One missing element is the humour which is much more present in the other X-Men movies. There is like one or two good jokes in the entire flick (which I would love to talk about here but it would be a big spoiler so I won't) Certainly a much better creation movie than that Wolverine: Origins one which was AWFUL. This at least pushes the ball forward, but isn't as strong a superhero movie as, say, Iron Man. In terms of casting, I found both Magneto and Mystique to brilliantly cast but I was surprisingly let down a bit by Professor X. Patrick Stewart leaves big shoes to fill, though. Still not as strong as X-Men 2 but a great entry nonetheless in the franchise. It's to make an X-Men movie that doesn't feature Logan but I found Magneto filled that gap nicely.
