By Drum Digital
14 October 2011

Fantasy action.

2011. 126 min.

With James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender and Kevin Bacon.

Director: Matthew Vaughn.


This stylish prequel to the four other X-Men movies tells the story of how Professor X, also known as Charles Xavier (McAvoy), and Magneto (Fassbender), came to oppose each other in their views of what mutants should be – friend or foe to humanity.

It’s intelligent and more concerned with characters than explosions, although the action set pieces are thrilling.

With sterling performances, it delivers a clever blend of fiction and fact.
