Another 20th Century Fox and Marvels’ film hit the screens last June 3, 2011 nationwide. It is a film that answers the queries of the X-men avid fans about the stories behind Magneto and Professor X’s conflicts. Matthew Vaughn directed the movie and was starred by James McAvoy (Charles Xavier or Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Erik Lensher or Magneto).
“Your best friend is your worst enemy” this quote was given justice by the movie upon revealing that Professor X and Magneto were once best of friends who have the same goal before. They have found belongingness with the other mutants knowing that they are not alone in this planet who have some special gifts or powers. But, things suddenly change when misunderstandings and divergence arouse between the leaders and the mutants. However, there’s a scene which I think is one of the weak points of this film. It’s when the young magneto killed the soldiers and not the general who killed his mother. Instead he left the general and waited for many long years to take his revenge in which he could have done earlier. What made the director and the writer create that unrealistic scene?
If we are going to compare this film with the previous X-men movies, this is definitely a poor one. The visual effects and the costumes lack emphasis for the movie, but not that totally bad. In the end, I found out that this film has not surpassed nor leveled the imaginations and the expectations of the viewers compared to the previous series.
