My Penny of View : The movie started with a scientist, Schmidt saw a young boy, Lensherr bend a metal gate with his mind. Later, he took the boy from his parents. He forced him to move a metal coin on a desk and he killed his mother. Lensherr became out of control and destroyed the room. On the other hand, a young telepath, Xavier met a homeless shape-shifter, Raven. He invited her to live with his family when he found out both of them were different with others. Years later, Lensherr was tracking down Schmidt for revenge. While Xavier was quite a successful professor on his mutation thesis. CIA was investigating on an US Army Colonel and discovered Shaw(Schmidt) with a bunch of mutants. They were on Russia Army side and spying on US Army's movement. Agent CIA sought for Xavier's help to deal with the abnormal gang of people. Is Xavier manage to overcome the war between US and Russia? How he do it?

This movie is a prequel to the X-Men film series. It's focusing on the relationship between Professor X and Magneto and the origin of their groups, the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants. Looks like they have run out of story and now they are going backward. Anyhow, it's something extraordinary if compare with others. Although the movie don't have our favorite character, Wolverine, but it's still an interesting story to understand how Professor X start up the X-Mansion and how Mystique become opposite side of Xavier. Wolverine and Storm made a special appearance. This movie have made a complete series of X-Men. But why is First Class? Is it the next movie is Economy or Business Class?
