    Default X-Men: First Class - impressions

    Rating: 4 of 5

    Story: different than early comics, of course, but it shows why people ended up where nicely.

    Cast: Michael Fassbender IS Magneto - PERIOD!!!! - and James McAvoy is far more than just credible as Professor X. Good casting up and down.

    Screenplay/Direction: slow in spots, what flick isn't?, but made up for elsewhere. Exciting where it needs to be.

    F/X: every penny is on that screen - very good

    Last word: a very successful reboot of the franchise, with just the perfect tone. Lots of room for sequels. One of the better Marvel themed films.

    just watched the movie last night, casting for magneto was perfect IMHO, and the cameo, he stole the scene for the few seconds he was there..
