Yes…the mutants are back. X Men First Class, envisioned to be a first film in new trilogy, is a prequel to original X Men. The film generally rounds about lives of Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr during the Cuban missile crisis (1962).
The plot starts with Dr. Schmidt observing the power of young Eric Lensherr at a German concentration camp after he kills his mother. Young Charles Xavier meets a shape changing mutant Raven and keeps her at his house. As time goes grown up Lensherr wants to kill Schmidt and Xavier’s becomes a professor with his research topic being mutants.
Xavier gets involved with CIA with help of their agent Moira MacTaggert and recruits new mutants along with Lensherr to fight Sebastian Shaw, who is revealed to be Dr. Schmidt and has ability to absorb power and wants to conquer world by starting a nuclear war. Xavier and Lensherr train mutants at Xavier’s house after CIA’s Division X is destroyed by Shaw and his counterparts.
The team goes to stop World War III with American and Russian ships ready to battle out. They stop the Russian ship from crossing the border line and Lensherr pulls out Shaw’s submarine and throws it on the ground. As mutants from both side fight, Lensherr kills Shaw going against Xavier. The Russians and Americans fire missiles to mutants which are deflected back by Lensherr to the ships. As Xavier tries to stop him he is hit by bullet, but saves the ships.
The film ends with Xavier now paralyzed proposing to use his mansion as school for mutants and Lensherr frees a mutant from CIA and reveals himself to be Magneto.
For all X Men lovers the movie is must to watch. There is no much recognizable cast but the screenplay and direction are much strong. The action scenes are well developed although there are some discrepancies in movie according to past X Men movies. In all movie is worth a watch.
