X-MEN First Class

Category: Movies

Genre: Action/Drama

Class A. Quality.

The best among the marvel stories turned into movies. Best among the x-men series at mukhang walang kinalaman sa naunang tatlo. Mas gusto ko kesa sa Wolverine and i really appreciate his cameo appearance, like saying “So Captain Amreica, they say your the first avenger. But i am the first X-Men. argh.” pero hindi naman pirate si Wolverine.

The pacing was very much appreciated, with enough tension in every sequence, which by the way every sequence was interesting.

The milieu was very interesting. The post was years was a dream for production designers. Wala pa naman ako nun gmga panahong iyun ,pero damang dama ko sa itsura yung panahon.  But more than the looks, the language, the nuances, the color of the film, ay, ang ganda.

With all of these, i forgave the minor details which i didn’t quite get, but i will try to enumerate still.

First, the non fans that were watching behind us. My god people, this is World War 2, not One. sinasabi na nga sa linya World War three na ang kasunod, if you didnt get the visual clues ng Nazi at ang circa 40s sa umpisa. At of course, nakakalungkot na hindi talaga nila kilala yung mga characters, kasi kilala ko yung ga yun, dahil nilalaro ko sila sa text nung panahong iba pa ang konteksto ng text.

I didn’t get why Erik killed the two guards but not Sebastian. Why did he wait so long to avenge her mother when he could have killed the man right when his power was powered by his anger.

Erik and Xavier’s friendship could been more romanticized. Magneto’s vengeance and Raven’s identity crisis overpowered the plot.

Magneto became the next Sebastian. though it was verbalized when Erik said that he believes Sebastian, but Sebastian killed his mom. The two have the same character and soon to be goal. Being influenced by a lot of soap opera, i waited for a line like “…but i would never be like you…”

Pero huwag ding sisihin ang pagkahilig ko sa mga pinoy drama. Ang teleserye ng goal ni Magneto to avenge her mother, then it turned out that he wanted to be the next messiah. I think, better this would if they romanticized the way Erik saw the sufferings of the Jews. There was a hint, but i expected or wanted a little more. just a little… or more.

The characters were hip, and that hipness became their excuse in naming Professor X and Magneto. Dinaan as groove. hindi ko kilala si Darwin at si Angel na babae. akala ko mamatay lang sila. i was righ twith Darwin. sayang, ang powerful pa naman niya.

I don’t know who the red Nightcrawler was. mukhang ise-sex niya si Mystique, or ire-rape niya and he will be Nightcrawler’s dad.

There was a mix of old 60s shots at mga attempts na gawing 3d ang movie, lalo na sa latter battle scene.

Nakulangan ako sa aksyon ng mga mutants vs mutants, yung mga ganung labanan. para tuloy the best pa rin ang Street Fighter nina Kylie Minogue. versus kung versus talaga ang labanan.

I was wrong in thinking that this was the alamat ng X-Men. This is more of Alamat ni Magneto, followed by “Ang Tunay na Banda ay Blue” starring Mystique and Beast. Then lastly ang mga leads ng X-Group. Si Professor X ang magiging leader of course ng X-Men . Si Havoc naman, na kapatid ni Scot aka Cyclops will lead the X-Factor at si Banshee ay magiging mahalagang member ng X-Force if not the leader as far as i remember.

Iceman, Beast, Jean Grey, Cyclops and Angel

Ang alam ko kasing original X-Men ay sina BEast, who was in the film, which i like. Then, sina Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman at Angel (si Warren Worthington at hindi girl na may pakpak ng tutubi).

Pero iyun nga, napatawad ko na an gmaliliit na details na ito dahil all in all, hindi ako nabagot sa movie. No dull moment. at dahil diyan, ito ang score ninyo.

  1. “…but i would never be like you…”
    “but you are already me.”
    Ang naisip kong pang soap opera na sagot.
