X-Men: First Class (2011)

X-Men: First Class (2011)

First Class (2011) is a prequel to the X-Men series. the story started out by introducing Charles Xavier (Professor X) n Erik Lensherr (Magneto) during their childhood. while Erik was having his metal-controlling power exploited by the Germans, Charles, a telepath, was happily inviting Raven, a homeless shapeshifter, to live with his family. after growing up, Erik began tracking down those who were involved n taking revenge. at the same time, Charles graduated from Oxford, publishing his thesis on mutation. a CIA agent who happened to see the unbelievable confronted Charles, asking for the truth. from there, Charles met with Erik, who was tracking down an enemy they both shared. they recruited some mutants (Hank, Angel, Darwin, Havok, n Banshee) n trained together to stop Shaw, who wanted to turn all mutants against the humans.

from its casts, i honestly expect less from the film n choose to watch it because it belongs to Marvel. i was dead wrong, its casts managed to outshine each other at all times! the film took its time to thoroughly introduced each mutant, from their origins to their inner thoughts. it was so much fun knowing each n every one of them in depth! while death was inevitable, sadness easily overwhelmed us even when it was one of the least important mutant. it was so impressive how the film managed to capture both our attention n emotions!
