It's X-men in the swinging 60s. Or it's supposed to be. The recreation of the timeperiod is not that convincing, really. Why do I keep watching these films? I don't know. The film is not as bad as X-men 3, on the same level as the first one, but not even close to the second one. The scenes with Michael Fassbender are very good, the rest of the young mutants and the villains are pretty boring, with no personality, and their powers looking quite awkward or silly on the screen - with the possible exception of Beast. The ending is a bunch of CGI overload. There is nothing in the film as fun or exciting as the attack on the president or the big fight between Wolverine and that clawlady from X-men 2.
