This movie was about the beginnings of X-Men. It tells us about the beginning of the mutants and especially the friendship between Charles Xavier/Professor X (a charming James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr/Magneto (an impressive Michael Fassbender). They even become close friends and Professor X helped Magneto harnessed his power through other emotions other than anger. Due to differences in visions and ideologies, alliances were then formed between the heroes and villains of the X-Men universe. The story plot did a great job incorporating historical events as well as portrayed a convincing 1960s motif. Bring on the prequel II and III.
James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender on-screen chemistry is electrifying in every scene they were in. Jennifer Lawrence was a perfect fit for her role. January Jones was an eye-candy and as hot as she can be. I just never realized how blue and mesmerizing James McAvoy’s eyes are.
Make sure you pay attention to two cameos. Shhh, I’m not telling.
