Synopsis:
For starters, kidjupiter92 and I are going to hope to collaborate to a unified continuity canon with no sentinels, yet no time travel and we hope we can incorporate The Wolverine (Kuzuri) and the original trilogy in with the new movies without much confusion. So, this will be the official first installment of this new canon.

With that out of the way, let's get started. Among many changes, this is focused on Erik. So, we only meet a character Erik meets them or is connected to someone Erik knows like Moira is connected to Shaw and in turn Erik. Darwin's death and Angel's switch (it seems she was always with Shaw) will be cut.
Intention:
Focus more on Erik and make it his story/origin and lessen Mystique, Beast, and Charles; while making it fit into a new X-Men universe.

A fine notion for a fan-edit, to restore X-Men: First Class to its original conception as "X-Men Origins: Magneto," however rather than deleting the right footage or restructuring the film into a properly Magneto-centric film, important scenes are merely delayed, so that when the X-Men show up, the overall feeling is one of confusion, as key characters and their relationships are introduced, and not explained until the third act via flashback or mere hints.

As a stylish film that succeeds in making an X-Men a true team film where nearly all others failed, XMFC is many folks' favourite in the franchise, but due to plenty of contradictions in the continuity of the franchise, it really works better depending on how fuzzy your recollection of those other films is (The Moira MacTaggert thing alone, still makes me crazy. And the far-too-pat origin of the name X-Men is everything wrong with prequels in one scene.) I had hoped that by this fan-edit drilling down onto a single character, this problem might be resolved, but unfortunately it just manages to underscore that no matter how good the performances or direction of a film, a half-baked screenplay will show through in the end, no matter what.

I really liked the theatrical release of First Class, but felt it ought to have been named "Magneto Begins". Theryaney's edit promised to trim the superfluous and redundant bits and turn it into an actual origin story. Sadly, I believe it fails in that.
As the-scribbling-man wrote, there are pacing issues throughout the film. The relationships between Moira, Raven, and Xavier are rushed and underdeveloped because too much has been cut. This, in turn, severely cripples the film, as certain scenes become jarring and almost incomprehensible. For example, cutting Xavier's recruitment to the CIA makes it difficult to understand the scene where he first meets Magneto. Additionally, moving Mystique and Xavier's first encounter to the end of the film takes away the basis for their relationship (and the transition was not done well - there's a noticeable drop in quality).
As a few others reviewers noted, the subtitles file is incomplete and some lines of dialogue are missing.
I really hope these issues are resolved, because this edit is very promising.

I saw First-Class about three years ago and was sorely disappointed. It came across to me as being very average, the many minor characters as annoying and their mutant powers uninspired. Then I came across this edit and, seeing the reviews, thought it might be worth another watch. Unfortunately, I was wrong.

It's hard for me to pinpoint how much of the blame lies with the editor and how much on the source material, particularly as it's been a while since I've seen the film. To the editors credit, many of the things I remember being annoying about it were absent this time; however, the entire first act felt rushed, characters were underdeveloped and there were times where I found it difficult to keep up with what exactly was going on. I think that if I hadn't had some sort of prior knowledge of the X-Men universe, most of the story would have come across as nonsensical. The school appears out of the blue, as do the students. Mystique and Xavier's relationship is also virtually absent until the end of the film (I understand that this was one of the things that was intended to be changed, but the fact is that the film shows they have a relationship. Taking away earlier scenes that show this doesn't make their relationship more casual, it just makes the later scenes look underdeveloped). Mrs. CIA's appearances were also very random. She kept on disappearing and reappearing throughout scenes and had virtually zero dialogue, but then right at the end of the film a romantic element is suddenly introduced between her and Xavier which just seems out of place. Once again, some of these things may have been a problem with the original film. I really can't be sure.

Editing wise this was mostly pretty good. Cuts and musical cues came across as very slick and I wouldn't have been able to tell where and when things were cut, bar a handful of scenes. The few that stuck out I will mention:

- After Eric fires his gun in the bar towards the beginning of the film there is a fade transition which came across as amateurish: for this reason I assumed it wasn't in the original film.
– Mystique's flashback when she walks into the kitchen and sees Charles is very jarring. The fade transition is quick and unnatural and didn't fit with the scene (IMO).

Audio is fine. Video quality could be better. It was decent, but not quite on par with the DVD from what I could tell.

Low points for enjoyment, I'm afraid. It has its moments, such as the climax with Charles and Eric, but at the end of the day I just don't think this is a good film, and there are narrative flaws of which I'm not sure where the blame lies (I'd have to go back and watch the original). As a result, I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend this edit. A lot of people seem to like it though, so congratulations to the editor; and Thankyou, theryaney for enabling me to watch it. I intend on watching more of your edits in the future!

Side note: There was a problem with the subtitle file, but the editor informed me of this prior to watching so I haven't taken points off for that. For those who are considering watching, I found that they could sometimes be fixed by turning them off and on again. This didn't always work, however.

This edit is just fantastic I have no complaints about it.
I highly recommend watching this edit.
The pacing is really good.
Pretty much everything that I didn't like In first class is gone.
I really like the darker beginning of the movie.
I am looking forward to this new X-Men universe.
Hope to see a sequel in the nearby future.
The subtitles were also really good.
If the editor needs any help with the X-Men projects I am happy to help.

A very tight edit which does a lot to fix the things that dragged First Class down. The X-Men film series seems to be plagued by underdeveloped and ultimately pointless supporting characters who just happen to have a name from X-Men comics. This trimmed this as best it could, though there are still limitations to how much of that can be done. Ultimately, putting the narrative focus on Magneto was a great idea as his was always the most compelling story in the film (a holdover from when this was to be X-Men Origins: Magneto, perhaps?).
I rated enjoyment as a 9 only because there is an issue with the subtitles. They don't quite work exactly as they should and in a movie with so much non-English dialogue that does hurt enjoyment.

The first in a series that seeks to tighten the chronology in the X-Franchise, this one casts a tighter spotlight on Eric Lesnher, aka Magneto, and focuses on his journey. All edited scenes flow together well About the only thing that has gone awry for me was the subtitle patch did'nt quite work, but that's ok, I prefer the more artsy true to life method of german characters speaking in their fluent native languages

Overall, First Class is a great movie in it's own right, but with a stronger emphasis on Magneto here, it's made even better.
