X-men First Class, Mutants, Character Magneto
Growing up I remember looking at many cartoons and reading comic books about the X-men. I often wished that I had super powers like storm or had knives for claws like Wolverine; whom I thought was the coolest of them all. I use to wonder why that had not created a movie about the older X-men such as Professor X and Magneto. The comic books described the X-men and how they came to be; however, I wanted to see it in film like the other X-men movies. In 2011 they finally created a movie for this specific part of the series and named it X-men First Class. This movie surpassed my expectations as well as many others; and that is why I think this movie is one of the best movies based on a comic book of all times.
X-men First Class is a movie about how in 1962, the United States government enlists the help of Mutants with superhuman abilities to stop a malicious dictator who is determined to start world war III. This movie introduces some of the well-known X-men such as Beast and Mystique ; but focuses on Professor X and the Main Character Magneto and how he came to be one of the best supervillians based of a comic of all times.
[...] X-men First class had a very detailed and interesting storyline about how the X-men began and Magneto's origins. The screen play writers for this movie are Jane Goldman, Matthew Vaughn, Ashley Edward Miller, and Zack Stentz.

Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new); to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. [...]
[...] The director for X-Men First Class is Matthew Vaughn. When watching this movie you can see that Matthew acts more as a facilitator of the comic book version of this story. In an interview conducted, he stated that in directing this movie he relied heavily on his influence from other movies like star trek and bond movies, and that he wanted to give a video game appeal to the movie, and that his style of directing really focuses on the actors themselves, meaning that he actually likes to show the actors that he cares, thus encouraging them to do their best and create the best product for the film.

[...] For example, one of the main characters, Mystique shows her evolution from being a scared little girl in the beginning of the movie that professor X discovers, to the end of the movie where she feels comfortable in the skin she is in and is no longer afraid to walk around in her natural form; she even Said's to the character known as beast at the end of the movie “remember beast, Mutant and Proud!” Men First class can be classified by having many genres a few would be: Science Fiction, Drama, Adventure, Thriller, Fantasy, and action. This movie displays many scenes and themes that could fit either one of these genres; which provides a very universal appeal to most movie goers. This movie has many great images in it and goes into great detail into the story; I think and Iconic analysis could be used when viewing it. [...]
[...] Young Magneto shows that he is struggling to use and control his power by trying to manipulate a metal object and fails to do so, which leads to Sebastian Shaw shooting and killing his mother.
