RFX, I have to ask. In the new movie, is there are a lot of weak attempts at humour?

There were a few but mostly in reference to the first 3 films or the characters itself like Prof X going bald and such. One thing that might bother some is that Prof X is very British/English, I don't really picture as such but I guess it does make some sense.

I see. I actually like Professor X and Mags being super English. There has to be a certain presence with these two characters and being English helps in that regard I'd say.

With Patrick Stewart being British, I suppose that it helps with the continuity.

+1 Patrick Stewart really made that character his own, and for me at least, his interpretation is now the definitive version across all media, including the books. As it probably is for most audiences. So making him very English and very Patrick Stewart-y in this movie was probably the right move, IMO.

In the beginning, I hope this isn't a spoiler but he was more Austin Powers than Patrick Stewart, using the word "groovy" every time he talked. Ok that might be a bit of an exaggeration but it's there. Mcavoys accent is just thicker than Stewarts but it isn't a movie breaker to me.

Fassbender wasn't English (or trying to be) at all. His accents are a bit confusing probably because there are a quite a few German dialogs in the film and that is not something I am too familiar with. Can't help seeing Fassbender as the US officer pretending to be German from Inglorious Basterds too so that probably didn't help. His performance was pretty good though, probably the best, on the same level as Loki in the Thor film.

I have a monster man crush on comic book S^2, so the whole X1/X2 Cyclops was kind of painful.

He was very English, but not very Patrick Stewart's version of Charles Xavier. Michael Fassbender, who played Magneto, did a much better job in playing a credible predecessor.

Forgot to mention that is SF related, Fassbender/Erik/Magneto was stylin in this movie.

Alot of continuity errors in the movie. Xavier is shown walking in the other x-men and in Wolverine in a flash back/in the 80s time line) Emma Frost is going through a Benjamin Button thing (In Wolverine she was a Kid). So aside from random continuity errors, it was a decent movie. Good action, good drama etc... I don't appreciate that Xavier and Magneto were only comrades for 10 days. Their relationship was much much more than that and it ruined part of the story and their relationship by going that route. Should they have completely rebooted? Probably. I really wish they never screwed up the stories and movies so much.. SO frustrating being afan of the comics and the 90s cartoons as well. They need to make me head writer, director and everything of every Marvel movie. In the end it felt like I spent 2 hrs to find out how Xavier lost the use of his legs and then realize that the flashbacks in the other movies showed him walking anyway.

I watched it yesterday. The movie should have been called Erik: first class. Magneto is a badass with a deep story. We understand now why he's so awesome. The way he destroyed order following human is both sad and great.
