There's a great buzz about this film. Truly it's worth the wait. People were like joking about it being second class. Well, that's for some who were fanatics of the comics because they're expecting a lot the way it was in the printed graphic. But most movie reviews we're actually pretty good about it since it got 8. 2 out of 10 stars in IMDb. 

I am not familiar with the lead characters therefore it won't qualify me as a legit movie critic but I'd like to comment about the story on how it speaks to me the time I watched it. As usual I started watching this when I was feeling really sleepy so I almost dozed off in half of the quarter of the film. I like the part where Professor X and Mystique met. Then when all of the mutants gathered in one base where they'd destroyed the statue while trying to display each of everyone's talent one at a time. It was really the part of the story that get me out of snooze time. 

It was a very interesting story of friendship full of surprising turn of events, worthy quotable lines, and it will make you think which side are you clinging if ever you're part of the team. 

It's amazing that a prequel like this was done good enough and even surpasses the last X-men movies. It had given a full blown past of Professor X and Magneto's friendship and it makes us hope they should just stay friends forever though  we all knew that he'll be the bad guy and still we hope in this film he wouldn't. 

The film gave us an example of beautiful friendships, how people have to sacrifice relationships just to fulfill what they choose and believe to be their destiny. It was a matter of love and cause. Choosing between what you love and what you believe in. 

Are you going to stay and fight for the people who's going to kill you once they know you are different or are you going to be with your own kind and fight for your race once provoke? 

I have a few favorite lines from this movie:

Erik Lensherr"If you're using half your concentration to look normal, then you're only half paying attention to whatever else you're doing. Just pointing out something that could save your life. You want society to accept you, but you can't even accept yourself."

Professor Charles Xavier"There's so much more to you than you know, not just pain and anger. There's good in you too, and you can harness all that. You have a power that no one can match, not even me." 

5 out of 5. The movie actually deserves it for it has all the elements of being entertaining and movies are supposed to be entertaining in the first place that's why we watch them. 

Good story-line, nice dialogues, better actors and actresses, cinematography, good visual effects, action-packed film, a bit or rather just a stashed of romance here and there. It makes you think, it excites you plus the eye candies that aren't just pretty faces but obviously can act and rule their roles.

And oh before I forget my secret bf is in this movie and I'm gonna show you a keepsake of mine... eww... (I'm warning you, please don't puke... hehe)


It's me in 2007 and him in 2010 and we met in 2011 by way of this picture... bahaha
