X-Men: First Class (2011) review

Judge, "X-Men: First Class" is not the color of the mutants', but its sign content.

In the long-awaited prequel to the film adaptation of Matthew Vaughn of the iconic Stan Lee comics, although the foreign genetic outliers to disarm future human weaknesses, quirks and admirable qualities. Charles Xavier, whose graceful personality was channeled by Father Patrick Stewart in the previous "X-Men" movies, seems to have been a bit of Lothar Carnaby Street back in the Swingin 'London of the 1960s. Raven, also known as Mystique, was once a teenage girl with skin that tends to come out (although blue scales). And who knew Magneto - Xavier Nemesis - might be worth not only understand, but sympathy?

In fact, the "X-Men" fans will probably know all this, and what are the best "First Class", which begins, as the comics themselves in 1944. Then a German boy named Erik Lehnsherr watch dragged her parents to Auschwitz. The adaptation of fear and anger, metal door folds separates him from his family, commanding the attention of a young scientist eager to exploit the Erik telekinetic powers.

Twenty years later, grown by Erik (Michael Fassbender), contemplates revenge on the man who started to destroy his life, and who now goes by the name of Sebastian Shaw. At the same time, brilliantly Telepathic Xavier (James McAvoy) is to get a doctorate in genetic research in Oxford, his shape-shifting to a friend replace a sister, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), at his side.

So what? Things happen, with "First Class" on a whirlwind tour of Las Vegas, Argentina, Russia, and finally the waters off Cuba in Miami, where - what do you know? - Shaw proves to be a cold shadow warrior. (This makes it suitable for a handyman is called primary ice queen Emma Frost, played by January Jones.) Obsessively pursues While Erik Shaw for their own purposes of revenge, Xavier meets a CIA agent called attractive MacTaggert Moira (Rose Byrne), who recruits him to recruit genetic mutants to help stop their bosses themselves Shaw.

This sequence of recruitment, of course, is one of the funniest parts of "First Class", with a special performance that will surely be considered the funniest movie (and profane) to go. Especially since this is an opportunity to see some other little-known X-Men in their younger incarnations, including Darwin (Edi Gathegi) Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones) and Angel (Zoe Kravitz), the Web as real tattoos grow wings This enables it to float rumors and ethereal as a dragonfly.

Its subtitle notwithstanding, even if the "First Class" is less of a mixed group of disaffected teenagers "Freaks" that Xavier is a discipline in the fight as some form of psycho-drama of her and Erik, whose experience during the Second World War made it more militant that the conciliatory, Xavier finds comfortable. By-any-means-necessary when it comes to separatist genetic identity, Erik does not trust the mainstream of society to grant full human rights of mutants. Xavier - whose telepathic powers are more extreme empathy as more supernatural gifts - believes that the adoption is not only possible but essential.

Everything would be a country of fancy hoo-ha, if it is not Vaughn was hired actors to bring characters to life: his thumb across her ready for the intense blue eyes, McAvoy rightly reflects thoughtful humanism Xavier. Lawrence, breakout star of last year's "Winter Bone" turns out to be lush and convincing evidence of the presence of the Raven / Mystique, develop a completely believable chemistry between the fresh face, Nicholas Hoult, as the CIA, a young scientist named Hank McCoy. (Jones, which is coated with an inert impassive at the same '60s-kitsch "Mad Men" here in the cold wearing boots-and-white bra fembot stone confident, in another example, a small perfect casting.)

Frankly, if "First Class" is an actor, and he is so Eric Fassbender / Magneto appears to be one of the most complex issue, really antiheroic protagonists in recent memory book comic film. As a transparent container and eminently watchable contradictory impulses - the vulnerability and superhuman strength, retaliation and destruction, discipline and relentless fury - Magneto Fassbender is not unlike Bobby Sands, IRA activist, he is depicted in the 2008 film of his play-to-last set "hunger." When Magneto raises alone, a submarine off the deep water by the force of his will, is one of the rare cases where an authentic display performance is not drowned by the sheer spectacle.

For most, it is true for the rest of "First Class" that fits between the localities and languages ​​with sometimes confusing, speed dispersion. However, "First Class" happily delivers on evasion and rich narrative structure the best of his predecessors have promised. With the emotions of action, atmosphere and mixed with burning (not to mention a few jokes about shaving the head Xavier), it works well on its way to give well-made "X-Men" franchise a breath renewal of superior genetics, nuclear-powered lives.
