Those Classy Men d'X

Hey, another superhero movie! They are becoming more common. Now it's just a question of quality.

In this one, Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr team up to become the wackiest cops this side of Danson and Highsmith! Hijinks ensue when Erik cripples Charles with ten minutes of hilarious beatings with a baseball bat, and then Charles makes Erik do the chicken dance!

Well, something like that. There are rounding up of some mutants to be on the side of 'good', and some bad guys, and there are big fights and January Jones (Emma Frost) spends a lot of time in lingerie (although not much in acting). And Jennifer Lawrence (Raven/Mystique) just gets in various different weird relationships with everyone...

James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender do great work as Charles and Erik. Kevin Bacon is playing Kevin Bacon. Rose Byrne does a fine job as Moira, but since she's human, she doesn't fare well in the movie. And everyone else turns up for various roles or amusing cameos.

Decent movie, worth the watching.
