X-Men: First Class (2011)

A solid prequel and refreshing take after a disappointing 3rd film X-Men Last Stand (2006). Going back to the 1960’s a younger Charles Xavier (James Macavoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) before they were Professor X and Magneto they were simply young friends learning about their abilities and trying to stop a world crisis. The two mutants recruit others like themselves some we know and some new to fight against potential nuclear war. But after alliances are challenged  Charles and Erik find themselves on opposite sides.
