Paco Chaos returns with the Nigel Tufnel Rating System

Ok, I’m back with the review of this summer’s second big comic book movie, X-Men: First Class. This is a prequel to the four other X-Men movies that have already been released, the most recent being 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine which was a prequel that takes place after this one.
The X-Men movies have always been a mixed bag, with the first two films being decent fun. The third was a slapdash mess that suffered from not having Bryan Singer at the wheel as he had been for the first two. The Wolverine prequel was another example of how Hugh Jackman is a talented actor getting stuck with goofy schlock.
