OUR REVIEW & RATING ★★★½
X-Men First Class quotes have breathed new life and a youthful energy into a waning franchise. The multiple plotted script is intelligent, exciting and stylish with a subtle whit about it and the chemistry between the two leads, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, is what really makes the movie shine and stand out.
Verdict: This adaptation of Marvel’s popular comic book has succeeded in combining a strong emotional story with brilliant explosive action.
Young Charles Xavier: Mother? What are you…? I thought you were a burglar!
Mrs. Xavier: I didn’t mean to scare you darling. I was just getting a snack. Go back to bed.
[Charles goes quiet and stares at his mother]
Mrs. Xavier: What’s the matter? Go on? Back to bed.
[Charles remains silent]
Mrs. Xavier: I’ll make you a hot chocolate.
Young Charles Xavier: Who are you? And what have you done with my mother?
[using his power to speak into Mrs. Xavier’s mind]
Young Charles Xavier: My mother has never set foot in this kitchen, in her life. And she certainly never made me hot chocolate. Unless you count ordering the maid to do it.
[suddenly Charles’s mother shifts shape and becomes a young Raven]
Young Raven: You’re not…scared of me?
Young Charles Xavier: I always believed I couldn’t be the only one in the world. The only person who was different. And here you are. Charles Xavier.
[he extends his hand to introduce himself]
Young Raven: Raven.
Young Charles Xavier: You’re hungry and alone. Take whatever you want. We’ve got lots of food. You don’t have to steal. In fact, you never have to steal again.
[Shaw addresses young Erik in German in his office in a concentration camp]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Understand this, Erik…These Nazis. I’m not like
them. Genes are the key, yes? But their goals? Blue eyes? Blond hair? Pathetic.
Eat the chocolate. It’s good. Want some?
Young Erik: [subtitled] I want to see my mama.
[Shaw addresses young Erik in German in his office in a concentration camp]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Genes are the key to the door leading into a new era, Erik. A new future for humanity. Evolution. You know what I mean? I’m not asking for much. A small coin, it’s nothing compared to the huge gates. Isn’t that right?
[Erik tries to move the coin on the desk with his powers but fails]
Young Erik: [subtitled] I’ve tried, sorry Doctor. I cannot…I do not…it is impossible.
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] The only thing I can say in favor of the Nazis is that their methods are producing results. I’m sorry, Erik.
[Erik’s mother has been brought to Shaw’s office]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Now this is what we will do. I count to three, and you move the coin. If you do not move the coin, I’ll pull the trigger.
[Shaw points a gun at Erik’s mother]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Do you understand?
[Erik extends his hands and tries hard to move the coin with his powers]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] One.
Young Erik: [subtitled] Mama!
Erik’s Mother: [subtitled] You can do it.
[the coin does not move]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Two.
[Erik looks at his mother]
Erik’s Mother: [subtitled] It’s alright. It’s alright. It’s alright!
[Erik keeps trying to move the coin but fails]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Three.
[Shaw shoots and kills Erik’s mother]
[after his mother is killed a grief stricken Erik shows the full extent of his powers]
Sebastian Shaw: [subtitled] Unbelievable, Erik. We have opened your gift with anger. Anger and pain. You and I are going to have a lot of fun.
[looking at a beautiful woman in a bar]
Charles Xavier: Heterochromia.
Amy: A gentleman would at least offer to buy me a drink first.
[Charles turns to the barman]
Charles Xavier: Norman? A pint of bitter for me and a brandy for the lady, please.
Amy: How did you know that?
Charles Xavier: A lucky guess. Name’s Xavier. Charles Xavier. How do you do?
Charles Xavier: Heterochromia is in reference to your eyes, which I have to say are stunning. One green, one blue. It’s a mutation. It’s a very groovy mutation. I’ve got news for you, Amy. You are a mutant.
Amy: First you proposition a girl and then you call her deformed. How is that seduction technique working for you?
Charles Xavier: I’ll tell you in the morning.
[Amy smiles and Charles laughs]
Charles Xavier: No, seriously. You mustn’t knock it. Mutation took us from single cells organisms to being the dominant form of reproductive life on this planet. Infinite forms of variation with each generation, all through mutation.
Amy: Then, let’s reclaim that word. Mutant and proud.
Amy: Charles here was telling me that I’m like one of the first sea creatures that grew legs.
Charles Xavier: Tiny bit sexier.
[they both laugh]
Charles Xavier: I’m sorry this is my sister, Raven.
Amy: Amy. And what are you studying?
[Raven turns one of her eyes to their natural yellow color]
Amy: Oh, look! You have heterochromia too.
Charles Xavier: Sorry, what?
Amy: Well, look at her eye.
[he looks at Raven and notices what she’s done]
Charles Xavier: [annoyed] Right. Raven, get your coat, please.
Charles Xavier: Don’t talk to me. You did that on purpose!
Raven: I did not!
Charles Xavier: Yes you did!
Raven: Why would I do it on purpose? You know I can’t control it sometimes. If I’m stressed or I’m tired.
Charles Xavier: You seem to be doing a perfectly good job of it right now.
Raven: Mutant and proud! Or is that only the pretty mutations or invisible ones, like yours? But if you’re a freak, better hide!
Charles Xavier: You’re being ridiculous. Look…look, I don’t mean to sound like an old fart.
Raven: Which you are.
Charles Xavier: Sometimes. But we talked about this, Raven. Small slip up is one thing, a big one does not bear thinking about.
Raven: Mutant and Proud? If only!
Raven: Would you date me?
Charles Xavier: Of course I would. Any young man would be lucky to have you. You are stunning.
Raven: Looking like this?
Charles Xavier: I…you…what?
[he looks at her seeing her in her true form]
Charles Xavier: Blue? You’re my oldest friend.
Raven: I’m your only friend.
Charles Xavier: Thank you, for that.
Charles Xavier: I’m incapable of thinking of you that way. I feel responsible for you. Anything else would just feel wrong.
Raven: But what if you didn’t know me?
Charles Xavier: Unfortunately I do know you. God! I don’t know what’s gotten into you lately. You’re awfully concerned with your looks.
[addressing Erik in French]
Swiss Bank Manager: [subtitled] Possession of this gold is illegal. Do you want me to call the police?
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Let’s not play this game.
Swiss Bank Manager: [subtitled] So where did you get if from?
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] From my friends. They recommended I come to your bank.
Swiss Bank Manager: [subtitled] Understood. You know our terms, sir?
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Yes. And you should know mine. This gold is all that is left of my people. It was their property. Taken out of their teeth. This is blood money. And you can help me find the bastards responsible for it.
[the bank manager goes to touch the alarm button but Erik stops him with his powers]
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Do not touch the alarm. I need a Schmidt. Klaus Schmidt. Where is he?
Swiss Bank Manager: [subtitled] Our clients leave no addresses. We do not…
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Not a bank?
[Erik uses his power and opens the bank managers mouth]
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Metal fillings, huh? Not gold. Worried that someone might steal them?
Swiss Bank Manager: [subtitled] Argentina! Schmidt, in Argentina! Villa Gesell! I beg you!
[Erik pulls his metal filling from his teeth]
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Thank you.
[turns to leave]
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] I would love to kill you. So remember, if you warn him about me, I will find you.
Raven: So, how does it feel to be a professor?
Charles Xavier: Oh, don’t call me that! You don’t get to be called a professor unless you actually have a teaching position.
Raven: I know. But it suits you.
Charles Xavier: Oh, don’t say that! Do say let’s go have a drink first.
Raven: Let’s go have a drink.
Charles Xavier: Wonderful.
[meets the two German Nazis at a bar Villa Gesell, Argentina]
2nd German/Tailor: [subtitled] I am a tailor. Have been my whole life. My father sewed the best costumes in Dusseldorf.
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] My parents are from Dusseldorf.
2nd German/Tailor: [subtitled] What are their names?
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] They had no names. Their names were taken by…pig farmers and tailors.
[reading the inscription written on the knife that he’s just taken from the 1st German]
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Blood and honor. Which would you prefer to lose first?
1st German: [subtitled] We only carried out orders.
Erik Lehnsherr: [subtitled] Blood it is then.
[he stabs the knife into the Germans hand]
[after he’s killed the barman and the 2nd German using his powers]
1st German: [subtitled] Who…what are you?
Erik Lehnsherr: Let’s just say I’m Frankenstein’s monster.
[he gets up and walks over to look at the photo of Shaw mounted on the wall]
Erik Lehnsherr: And I’m looking for my creator.
[using his power he gets the gun from the dead barman, turns and shoots the 1st German]
Moira MacTaggert: I really need your help.
Charles Xavier: All right.
Moira MacTaggert: The kind of mutations that you were talking about in your thesis. I need to know if they may have already happened, in people alive today?
[Charles reads her mind seeing the mutants she’s seen]
Moira MacTaggert: Professor? I think we should just talk when you’re sober. Do you have any time tomorrow?
Charles Xavier: Something tells me you already know the answer to your question. This is very important to me, and if I can help you, I will do my utmost.
Moira MacTaggert: Thank you.
[as he watches Shaw absorb the energy from the bomb]
Colonel Hendry: You’re one of them?
Sebastian Shaw: Very astute of you, Colonel Hendry. Do you wanna guess what I can do? I’ve got the power to absorb energy. Keeps me young. That’s the boring part. The fun stuff is what I can do with it once I’ve got it.
[he touches Hendry and sets him on fire]
CIA Director McCone: MacTaggert, you really think that some crackpot scientist is gonna make me believe in sparkly dames and vanishing men? You just bought yourself a one way ticket back to the typing pool. This meeting is over.
[Moira gets up]
Charles Xavier: Uh…please. Sit down, Agent MacTaggert. I didn’t really expect you to believe me, given that all you’d think about during my presentation was what sort of pie they were serving in the commissary. It’s apple pecan.
Charles Xavier: I haven’t been entirely honest with you, love. I’m sorry. You see, one of the many spectacular things my mutation allows me to do, is that I can read your mind.
William Stryker Sr.: I’ve seen this before at a magic show. Are you gonna ask us to think of a number between one and ten now?
Charles Xavier: No, Agent Stryker. Although I could ask you about your son, William, who you were thinking about. Which is very nice, but I think I’d rather ask you about the Jupiter missiles, America currently placing in Turkey.
CIA Director McCone: He’s a Goddamn spy!
CIA Director McCone: You brought a Goddamn spy into this facility!
[as everyone is arguing suddenly Raven stands up and turns into her true form, then shifts into looking like Stryker and then back into her true form again]
Charles Xavier: How’s that for a magic trick!
Man In Black Suit: Best I’ve ever seen.
CIA Director McCone: I want them out of here. And locked down until I can figure out what to do.
Man In Black Suit: My facility is off site. I’ll take ’em.
Man In Black Suit: I’ve always known that there were people like you out there. I’ve been the laughing stock of this agency for years, but I knew it! You’re gonna love my facility.
Charles Xavier: That’s gonna have to wait.
Man In Black Suit: Why?
Charles Xavier: Agent MacTaggert has a lead on Sebastian Shaw, and if we don’t move now, apparently we’re gonna lose him.
Man In Black Suit: What?
Raven: Not only can he read minds, he can communicate with them as well.
[Moira pulls up towards them in her car and Raven gets in]
Charles Xavier: Moira and I have just had a lovely conversation.
Moira MacTaggert: Yes. We did.
Man In Black Suit: That is incredible! But…but I cannot take you anywhere else without permission from upstairs.
Charles Xavier: Would you like to see one more magic trick?
Man In Black Suit: Okay.
[using his power]
Charles Xavier: Get in the car.
Man In Black Suit: Good idea.
[as Emma Frost stops him using his powers]
Charles Xavier: I’ve lost Shaw. I’ve los…I’ve lost Shaw! The…there’s something blocking me. This has never happened to me before! I think there’s someone like me on that ship.
Moira MacTaggert: Like you?
Charles Xavier: Um…I’m sorry. A telepath. This is incredible! I could actually feel her inside my mind. I’m very sorry, but I don’t think I’m gonna be much help to you tonight. You’re on your own.
[as he jumps into the sea he speaks to Erik with his mind trying to stop him from killing Shaw]
Charles Xavier: You can’t. You’ll drown. You have to let go. I know what this means to you, but you’re going to die. Please! Erik, calm you mind.
[after Charles has stopped Erik from trying to kill Shaw]
Erik Lehnsherr: Who are you?
Charles Xavier: My name’s Charles Xavier.
Erik Lehnsherr: You were in my head! How did you do that?
Charles Xavier: You have your tricks, I have mine. I’m like you. Just calm your mind!
Erik Lehnsherr: I thought I was alone.
Charles Xavier: You’re not alone. Erik, you’re not alone.
Man In Black Suit: Welcome to my facility. My mission has been to investigate the application of paranormal powers in military defense.
Erik Lehnsherr: Or offense.
Man In Black Suit: This guy, Shaw-Schmidt, whatever you wanna call him. He’s working with the Russians. We might need your help to stop him.
Charles Xavier: Marvelous. So are we to be the CIA’s new mutant division, yes?
Man In Black Suit: Something like that.
