Review: 'First Class' a class act

(Continued)

THE FINAL SCORE: As unlikely as it seemed when this film was coming together and even as we approached its release, “X-Men: First Class” may be the best of the four major comic book releases this summer. It may even be the best film of the summer. Vaughn has laid down the gauntlet. It will take one heck of a film to answer the challenge.

EXTRAS: While there are no extra scenes following the film’s conclusion or credits, the movie has plenty of cameos to thrill Marvel fans and genre geeks alike. Keep you eyes open.

 

"X-Men: First Class" is rated PG-13 and has a run time of 132 minutes.
