X Men Origins: Wolverine was a not-so-happening movie, but X-Men: First Class has charted the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. The 60's set story is made with a mythical dimension. It is a highly enjoyable, but it lacks the amount of humor that was provided in other X Men franchises.
Like other Marvel Comics, X-Men: First Class deals with atomic age mutant superheroes. But it is not the comic book origins story. It has got a fine sense of original Bond-era style. It provides a veritable world tour, jumping from Warsaw to Moscow, Washington DC, Switzerland and Las Vegas.
The story of the movie is set in the early 1960s. Director Matthew Vaughn's solid story-telling and hold on narration help him in holding the attention of viewers. He has also managed to combine real events like Warsaw Ghetto and Holocaust, Cuban Missile Crisis, the arm’s race with the heroic shenanigans of its multiple protagonists in a seamless fashion.
