Very few films new on DVD this week, but the lack in quantity is made up for in quality. All three new releases are worth checking out, leading with the surprisingly well-received X-Men: First Class. Featuring two great lead performances from James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, Criticker users loved it. The community also approves of Cate Blanchett’s turn as a Russian assassin being hunted across Europe in the suspenseful Hanna.
