02.11.12Netflix I'd heard this was good. I like Kevin Bacon. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender are SO hot right now. Matthew Vaughn really should've directed X-Men 3. So why didn't this movie really work for me?

Dunno. It just seemed like a re-run or something. Like the first child footage of Magneto was lifted directly from X-Men 1 right? And something about the Hellfire Club as the main villain seemed rather minor to me. I guess I kinda get how the origin stories are everybody's favorite but i dunno... at this point I would've much rather had a more blatantly episodic X-Men movie where they don't have to explain shit and just show us some awesome mutant superpower action. Like The Mutant Massacre or something where it's just balls-out shit going on or maybe talk about some Sentinel stuff. Instead, it felt like a re-tread of the first film to me except the mutants involved are even more obscure. Again, by the numbers I should've found this enjoyable but my takeaway is pretty bland.
