Long gone are the days where a big budget and a plethora of flashy CGI meant you were in for a full-on cinematic treat of guaranteed quality. No, these days the odds on a good action movie are 50/50 at best, even less so if it’s the latest in a production line of sequels.
X Men: First Class was a genuine surprise then, not just because it wasn’t bad, but because it was really, really good. James McAvoy injects a great bit of British class as a young Professor X in this origins story of refreshingly exciting proportions.
X Men: First Class is available to purchase on DVD now.
