On "X-Men: First Class"

From The Dispatch:
Vaughn returns the series to its former glory by focusing on the story’s innately human elements while still delivering thrilling action sequences and dazzling visual effects. “First Class” is a smartly written and tightly plotted summer blockbuster with the gumption and drive to feature fully fleshed out characters, remarkably realized by a solid cast. While there may be some continuity issues with the other films, those are easily overlooked in light of how well it works as its own, standalone film.

as far as summer fare goes, First Class was finally the first one worth the popcorn, after the 2 hour long Avengers preview that was Thor, the vile of Hangover II and the lifeless, joyless Pirates.
