X-Men

This is the fifth installment of the movie series and stars James McAvoy as a telepathic and Michael Fassbender as Erik/Magneto and Kevin Bacon.

Like the first installment, this latest installment starts with a scene in the Auschwitz concentration camp then the movie settles in  the 1960’s during the Cuban missile crisis. It turns out the crisis was hatched by the mutants. In the opening scene Erik which grows up to become Magneto is being terrorized in order to tap his super power capabilities. Using World War II scenes specially Nazi death camps like Auschwitz is absurd if not distasteful.

The film tried to explain the origin of X-Men and also Magneto’s pointy helmet/mask. The helmet was invented by the Russians to prevent telephatic mind-reading.

Michael Fassbender acted his part very well as Magneto and James McAvoy also has his moments as the telephathic Professor X. He is a nerdy professor of genetics at Oxford and lives with Raven, the blue mutant in a castle. They grow up like sister and brother and recruited by the CIA to track down the evil Shaw. Kevin Bacon is also very good as the villain. He engineered the Cuban missile crisis in order tp dominate the world.

The movie starts in Auschwitz then moved to New York, England, Argentina, Las Vegas, Miami, Moscow, Virginia. If you think the second installment is bad, this is worst. It is combination of  political metaphor and eye candy.

Unless you are a fan of comics movies, wait for it when it comes out in DVD.
