Name: Stephen Castaneda
Bio: I only started buying and reading comics but i've been fascinated by the world of comics and have kept up with the happenings (mostly in marvel) the first comic i brought was dark avengers #1.
Fassbender and Mcavoy were great in their roles. Lawrence and Bacon were ok in their roles. January Jones gives the same wooden performance as she did in unknown, she also did the sad, lost puppy face in this movie too. Whilst the rest were quite forgettable, like Darwin, he had no place in this film you could remove him all together and the film would only be slightly different from beginning to end.
Some of the writing was really bad, most of that going to the character of Hank McCoy. While on writing, some of the lines were super cheesy, all the Xavier going bald jokes and lines like "She didn't do this, you did this" literally made me do a Picard facepalm (ironic isn't it).
While the action was fun I never really felt like anyone was in real danger until the final showdown with the rockets. I also felt like the hench-mutants were pretty lame, I wish they had just shoe-horned in Sabertooth and Toad.
In the end it suffered the same fate as X-Men Origins Wolverine, getting to a point were the writers and director realise that they still have to line everything up with another movie because someone stupidly decided this should remain in the same continuity as another film.
One thing that annoyed me about Xavier was the way he treated Mystique when she was in her normal blue form. I always thought Xavier was super accepting about those things, hell he didn't give Beast any crap for his crazy feet.
In the end I was so frustrated with this movie as soon as Xavier lost his legs, which I felt was handled terribly, I just walked out knowing that everything would be wrapped up so it would lay perfectly with X-Men.
And lastly I'll leave you with this thought, what is it with X-Men writers and bullets?!
Anyway, I have little faith in this project but I'll leave my mind open to it and might keep an eye on it as it evolves.
