X-men First Class at 91%

X-Men-First-Class-Teaser-Poster-20-1-11-kcWith just a day until the release of X-Men: First Class, reviews for the film have started to come in and they appear to all be positive. As of the writing of this post, X-men: First Class holds a 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with some reviewers being as bold as to say that X-men: FC is the best of the X-men films, (well, at least IGN has been that bold).

I take all of these reviews as good news for X-men: FC, since up until now I had low expectations for this film. None of X-men: FC’s marketing has really worked to draw me into wanting to see the film. I would have probably gone to see it anyways since it’s the X-men. That being said, a film like this can’t rely on being an X-men film alone to sell the film since many people didn’t really like the last film. If anyone were go off of their impressions of the last film, X-men: FC we could see a decline in people going to see it even though, according to the reviews, this is actually a pretty good film.

Hopefully, I’m wrong and this weekend X-Men: FC will make bank because I would hate to be right about this one. What do you think? Are you looking forward to X-men: FC?
