      The problem with this film is that it may be called "X-Men - First Class" but it has absolutely NO resemblence to the comic books whatsoever. It totally disrespects MARVEL'S original mainstream source material and both Singer & Fox are guilty for completely ruining this franchise. Their arrogant, obnoxious stance in inventing their own convoluted continuity reeks of egotism beyond beleif. I will not be seeing this in the cinema nor wasting my money on the DVD release for the simple reason that this is not the GENUINE AUTHENTIC X-Men based on the popular Marvel Comics series. It is a very POOR Fox Studio's c**p adaptation that has changed everything from characterizations, continuity, costumes, timelines, everything except the actual associated name of X-Men. Do us all a favor Fox and hand the film rights back to their rightful owners and let MARVEL STUDIOS do justice to this once proud team of super heroes. Right now it is nothing short of PATHETIC. LOL!

      Why anybody in their right mind would pay for a COUNTERFEIT representation of a comic book is beyond me. This is NOT an X-Men film. Just a B Grade movie with some unknown X-Men characters in it designed to appeal to the Twilight / High School Musical teen crowd.

      Why anybody would pay to see a COUNTERFEIT representation of a comic book is beyond me. This is just a whizz bang FX driven B Grade movie with some fairly unknown X-Men characters designed to appeal to the Twilight / High School Musical generation. Nothing more and nothing less. What a joke.
