8.5/10. The best X Men movie I've seen. It's also the best performance by Lawrence. I would venture this could match the 2000 movie in excellence, perhaps as an equal. True it takes liberties with the Cold War but there's been other filmmakers who're guilty of this. Michael Fassbender really sticks out here as the sympathetic Magneto. He's a man torn by vengeance and trying to do the right thing. We all probably struggle with something like this. A well put together movie.

Continuity mistake: When Mystique is on the exercise table and Erik lifts the bar off her, her right leg changes from stretched out to bent from the different camera shots.

Chosen answer: The short answer is events in this film negate what happened in X-Men 3 as well as Origins: Wolverine or one could say this film essentially became a reboot. Since no real answer seems to be given, and since the X-Men 3 film makers didn't know Charles would later be shown to become paralyzed prior to visiting Jean, they had no need to explain why he's walking. One can only speculate on the possible ways Charles walks in these 2 previous movies (and this isn't taking into account the timeline shift from X-Men Days of Future Past). We do know from DOFP that Hank/Beast created a serum for Charles that allowed him to walk, albeit without his powers. Hank could have kept working on this serum which would allow Charles to walk and still maintain some of his powers. Then at some point Charles stopped taking the serum, confining him to the wheelchair once again. Either because they ran out of the serum or because Charles came to the realization he needs to accept what happened and not hide it, especially if he's teaching children to accept who they are. Charles also has the power of "astral projection" and the power to appear in the minds of others, so Charles could simply not be there at Jean's house, but is back home, in his wheelchair.
