You can't gleam too much from the synopsis of each film to judge quality then.
Stop making sense.

Avengers was a much better movie. XMFC was far too rushed and it showed in the final product.
I had the same issue with XMFC .... but it's always been like that for me with the XMEN films. I roll my eyes when they're flirting and coming up with names for each other or when Angel Salvadore switched scenes. The scene was so bad. January Jones also needed a personality injection in that movie ... fun to look at though. As usual Fassbender was better than everyone in the cast.
