X-MEN: FIRST CLASS
9PM, WIN ★★★
Back in time and back with a vengeance. That’s what the report card shows for First Class, a barnstorming blockbuster that restores every lost bit of lustre to the once-faded X-Men franchise. The film sets a fast and furious pace. Top effects and a gripping finale meant it was one of the better action releases of 2011.
