Well, one good thing to come out of it - I like Charles and Erik much better after this movie than I did after DOFP, where I found them both so unpleasant that it killed my 'ship. I even may feel 'ship kindlings again.

This movie is odd in that, like, 90% of it is set-up - just, a terrific amount of character introduction and build. Which is sort of an awkward structure, but it also means that unlike most superhero movies, there isn't a fight sequence every 20 minutes - there's, like, dialogue instead. Which I vastly prefer. (Except for the fact that there was a guy in front of me who actually fell asleep and snored loudly throughout the movie, and I kept praying for a loud fight sequence to wake him up.)

Generally speaking, I found it pretty enjoyable. Pietro was the best part, actually, just the way he was in DOFP, and Fassbender was almost criminally attractive. Charles functioned as a classic damsel-in-distress for a little while, and that pleased me.

I don't have a lot of other deep thoughts, but my biggest complaints

Spoilers, but not huge ones )
