X-Men First Class: what a pleasant surprise

I had really low expectations for this film, being that it was not produced by Marvel and Fox Studios still owns the rights. Lo and behold, this was a solid superhero origin flick. Michael Fassbender absolutely owns and incarnates the role of Magneto and steals the whole movie. I saw it for free, as apart of a private screening, and I would pay to go see it again just to see Fassbender's mastery again. He was that good.

Wolverine has a cameo for a few seconds, as does Rebecca Romijn as Mystique. Other than those 2, this is a solid re-boot, of sorts. Go enjoy for yourselves, true believers.
