You have got to be kidding me.
No memorable jokes?
Magneto: "Maybe when you're older."Mystique: "How about now?"
That was absolutely classic. And passionless? Did we watch different movies? This is Kevin Bacon's most nuanced acting in a long time. And James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender turn in absolutely stellar performances, especially any scene they're in together.
Also, I'd love to hear what your definition of a "striking image" is.
****minor spoilers after this point****
Also, you totally missed the point with the "enslaved" comment. It wasn't just "somebody" who said that, it was the main antagonist of the movie, Sebastian Shaw. When Shaw (Bacon's character) said "enslaved" he looked directly at Darwin (the "black guy" you so offhandedly mentioned). There's a lot of nuance there, just as there's a lot of nuance in the scene between Magneto and the two German officers. Shaw (Bacon's character...just helping you keep things straight) is fully capable of using emotional manipulation to get people to do what he wants. When the movie is taking place, civil rights is still a HUGE issue. So naturally, he would look to "the black guy" and the "hispanic girl" as sympathizers - they are the most obvious targets for his attempt at persuasion. They would know exactly what it's like to be hated for no rational reason, and Shaw being a reasonably intelligent person would pick up on that. Also, given the fact that his two main sidekicks are an Asian-looking badass and a red guy that can teleport, I'm pretty sure that racism was not in the character design.
Also, in an aside, the entire tone of that comment tells me that you must be white. As an intelligent black person, I'm more than capable of deciding what offends me on my own, thanks.
Lastly, identifying the relationship between Erik and Charles as "bromantic" is hilariously inerudite. You may have missed it while texting or stepping out to use the bathroom, but Erik makes it clear to Charles a few times that their relationship is a friendship of convenience, and on at least two occasions their methods clearly show their differences (when they catch up with Emma Frost, for example).
