This is a breath-taking super-hero movie! Arguably the best of the X-Men series. You definitely would go back to watch the predecessor movies in this series. It would actually be a good idea to add this set of action-packed movies to your library!
Directed brilliantly by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass), the film is full of events and dramatic sequences. Real fast-paced cinematography that despite the multitude of events in each episode you don't feel confused. Actor Kevin Bacon shines in the role of the charismatic diabolical scientist who controls Magento,the mutant who is able to harness the energy that turns him into a superpower. But you also get superb performance from actor James McAvoy in the role of Charles Xavier (professor X)and actor Michael Fassbender in the role of Magento.
During the 2 hours and fifteen minutes of the movie we come to know how Professor X and Magento became close friends and how eventually their roads parted. How Professor X became paralyzed and what was the secret of Magento's helmet! How Mystique joined team with Magento!
The special effects in this movie and the design and editing of the action scenes are done with great professional skills (movie budget $ 140,000,000)! From the opening scene to the marvelous closing end, you will notice the excellent structure of this movie and you will love it!
The music score is beautifully composed by Henry Jackman (Winnie the Pooh). And the end song "Love Love" is out of the album "Progress" by the British pop group Take That.
Kevin Bacon starred in Friday the 13th, Footloose,JFK etc.
James McAvoy starred in Wimbledon, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion and The Witch , the Wardrobe, The Last King of Scotland, Atonement and Wanted.
