X-MEN is an extremely successful film franchise however, it has often struggled to develop some its core character. Instead, the films have focused on the character of Wolverine. The movies have to establish characters like Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey so the audience can have characters they emotionally connect to.
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS is still an immensely entertaining film. It has its problems, but thanks to several factors and the passage of time it is better than ever. It’s fun, fresh, and a lot different than all of the other films in its family.
