I watched it. I liked it. I got the impression that it was panned, but I don't get why. OK, comic fans might hate it cos it doesn't follow canon, but as a film it works ok. It's a good bit of fluff for a Sunday afternoon.
Hugh Jackman makes a good (hot) Wolverine. I was pretty surprised by Scott Summers not being ridiculously annoying, and actually displaying some balls (not literally). Emma Frost was also pretty good. Gambit was annoying and rather moody, but I expected that. Deadpool was barely in it, but I was gratified to see that Ryan Reynolds wasn't playing Hal for Deadpool. It was a good superhero movie. Lots of powers, lots of fight scenes, lots of angsty romantic bits and basically pretty much all I want from a superhero movie. Still, I was a bit puzzled to see Ma and Pa Kent turn up halfway through.. Did Stan Lee get a cameo in this one? I didn't notice.
Now tell me, is this movie still canon in the X-Men franchise and if so, how does that X-Men First Class movie fit into movie canon?
