Manages to have a epic feeling without losing its heart. The film has some great action scenes,with Magneto lifting up a whole stadium being pretty epic to watch. But the quieter scenes manage to be just as effective. Also the music in this found i found really effective.
The dynamic between Xavier and Magneto is center stage once again,and it is wonderful to watch there scenes together. In particular,seeing Xavier grow from a broken man into a leader is interesting to watch. Mystique is also given a more prominent role this time, with the whole film in a way revolving around her ultimate decision.
The returning cast from both First Class and the first slew of X-men films are all top notch. Evan as Quicksilver brought some comedic relief to the proceedings, and Dinklage made for a great villain.
