This is the first in an exciting new project started by theryaney that seeks to bring all of the X-Men films into one cohesive continuity. Several other editors have joined the fray, making this one of the biggest collaborative projects that FE.org has ever seen!

Most of the scenes involving Xavier and Mystique have been taken out for a couple of reasons. First, it allows this film to focus more heavily on how Erik became the main protagonist/antihero of the X-Men. Originally an "X-Men Origins: Magneto" was in the works; this is probably something of what it would have looked like.

Second, there's very little in the other X-Men films to suggest that Xavier and Mystique had a significant friendship, so when watching them with "First Class" first, it can seem somewhat jarring. But now their friendship seems a bit more casual. Without the lighter Xavier-Mystique scenes, and with the focus on Erik's tragic backstory, this film becomes much darker but deeply compelling.

Nearly all cuts are unnoticeable; I had to go back and re-watch the original just to see what had been taken out because the cuts were so seamless.

In the interest of complete objectivity, I must note that I had lots of problems with the subtitle file; it only worked sporadically for me. But theryaney assures me that no one else has had issues with it, so I don't want to dwell on this too long. (Heaven knows I've never built a subtitle file before!)

I'm very excited about this project, and theryaney has got it off to a great start with this edit. I look forward to seeing how the project continues to develop!

after watching first class i thought that the story would be the same this edit with just a snip here and there taken out, but when i watched this i found i was wrong, erik now comes across as relentless tracking down nazi after nazi while looking for the officer who killed his mother forcing his latent powers to arise. His powers are out of control until he meets charles who befriends him while teaching him to control his skills and to be part of a team.
The action is more fluid and is not bogged down by useless dialogue and irrelevant characters this edit is worth the watch for any xmen fan

I'm very please with this edit. I don't like First Class as it was and now you made it watchable for me =).

Very good narrative and pace. My only note is regarding the subtitles of foreign language (French, German and Russian) which are not very good. I'm fine with the rest.

Good work =)
