For as cool as (most of) the original X-Men trilogy is, I've got to say First Class is by far the best of the series. While the trilogy does explore the differing ideologies somewhat, most of the time is devoted to kick-ass fights. First Class has its fair share of action of course, but the far more interesting aspect is the development of the split between Magneto and Xavier. Naturally there are parallels to various struggles between different groups of humans, which of course proves Magneto's point; ultimately I think his stance is the only tenable one.
