    Default X-Men First Class.....Overrated?

    After two underwhelming movies(X3 and Origins), First Class was such a breath of fresh air. It introduced some new characters, offered a different take on familiar characters, and had this amazing moment.....


    Spoiler






    But for all of that, it has some serious flaws.

    1. January Jones may have looked the part, but she was an awful Emma Frost.
    2. "Angel"
    3. The whole process of naming everyone. That scene is painful.
    4. For it's time, it seemed like poor visual effects.






    To be fair, it does a good job of setting up new cast for it's characters, and puts in motion up my favorite X-Men movie(Days of Future Past).




    At the end of the day, Is First Class Overrated?

    Angel is a Morrison-era X-Men ... and she was pretty good based on the character.

    I still really enjoy the flick. While it may not be perfect, it's still pretty fantastic and Top-3 out of all X-Franchise movies (X-Men, Wolverine and Deadpool combined).

    Breath of fresh air indeed.

    Yes it had flaws, but the good outweighed the bad. Great way to start the reboot. The all star cast alone deserves a nod. Absolutely loved the trilogy as a whole, barring a few glaring errors, and am excited for the next movie.

    Not Overrated.
    I really have never seen anyone refer to it as the best movie, since it clearly is not. It's a good film, though. I loved seeing Nightcrawler's dad, even if only for a few short scenes.

    First Class was great, especially considering it followed the pure shit that was X3 and Wolverine: Origins. It also set up Days of Future Past which was awesome. So overall not overrated one bit IMO>

    I meant to add that Fassbender's performance alone makes this movie good.

    No, definitely not overrated.

    I came into that movie ready to hate it from the jump. I'm still amazed by how strong it was. If anything; it's probably a little underrated now due to it's sequel Days of Future Past being one of the best comic movies period.

    Excellent movie. McAvoy and Fassbender were both great...they had a lot to live up to and they stepped up in a big way.

    I liked Angel too.

    Nah, it had some weaknesses, but in total, it was a very good movie. One of the 3 best with X2 and DoFP.

    "its better than X3 and Origins" isn't really much of a benchmark.

    It pulled the stick out of the X-Men series' ass and was pretty damn fun.
