Movie Review: Very possibly the best X-Men movie we ever had, and also one of the top comic book movies I have watched! This movie’s cast is marvelously huge, with the old cast from the original X-Men trilogy, and the new cast from the younger version, X-Men: First Class, and it was spectacular, all of them gave terrific performances and no one felt out of place. Tremendously intense, the stakes for the mutants were incredibly high, making this film a non-stop nail biter at the terrifying consequences. I loved the immense character depth, seeing bone chilling performances by James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, all at their best. This movie never stops to give me huge goosebumps at the climax points, and also the massive feels at the most touching moments. It is so rarely these days to catch a film that is so richly intense and strongly emotional at the same time, I was glued and attached to these mutants. ❤ With another cherry on top, it was amazingly hilarious in a few points of the film, mainly meeting the hyper active mutant, Quicksilver (Evan Peters)! The connection and teamwork of the X-Men were so in sync and inspiring to watch, greatly portraying them as one, and not only having one protagonist. The soundtrack was really captivating and enthralling as well.
