Mutants, since the discovery of their existence they have been regarded with fear, suspicion often hatred. Across the planet the debate rages, are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain or simply a new species of humanity fighting for their share of world. Either way it is a historical fact, sharing the world has never been humanity’s defining attribute. ~ Prof. Charles Xavier
In 2003, Singer rejuvenated X-2 by introducing new mutants, focusing more on Logan’s life thus expanding the franchise. Hugh Jackman re-furnished his role as Logan a.k.a Wolverine. X-2 proved to be a sequel worthy of its name. The failures of last two installments were evident with the absence of Singer.
Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men : First Class is perhaps the best film in the entire series. With solid script & outstanding performance from James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender & Kevin Bacon, First Class succeeds in elevating the franchise once more.
Couple of new mutants has been introduced & they are really captivating. Some of them are capable of shape-shifting while some can discharge energy with a blast. My personal favorite had been Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones), mutant talented in creating colossal ultrasonic waves. Only baddie who really looked effective other than Shaw himself was Azazel (Jason Flemyng) who had the ability to teleport at any given moment. X-Men boasts some awe stirring special effects which of course did not sub-due the plot. This is definitely the best super-hero movie from Marvel Studios this year.
