Oh boy. Look, X-Men: First Class has a lot of things going for it on paper: a first-class director in Matthew Vaughn, a story conceived by original X-Men director Bryan Singer, excellent leads in James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, and an interesting silver-age setting. However, when I look at these photos of people standing around looking at something off camera, playing chess, and sitting on a couch -the power of “meh” is overwhelming. I realize it’s short-sighted to dismiss a film based on promo photos, but Good Lord, this is yawn-inducing stuff. I’m not 100% sure, but I think Kevin Bacon plays a mutant whose power is boring the shit out of people until they drop dead. (More pics after jump) Credit: LA Times.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
