‘X-Men Days of Future Past’ Movie Review

The cast of first X-Men trilogy team-up with the new cast from X-Men: First Class and director Bryan Singer proved he knows X-Men better than anyone could have ever expected.

x-men-days-of-future-past-beast-storm-poster halle berry nicholas houltX-Men: Days of Future Past is set in a dark, dystopian future where the mutants are hunted and killed and world is left hopeless. The Sentinels designed to hunt mutants now hunt humans who carry the gene and will likely have a mutant child or grandchild, so pretty much everyone.

Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) have devised a plan to use Kitty Pryde’s (Ellen Page) powers to send Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine back into 1973, united the First Class X-Men and change the future.

Sadly the film offers great moments and scenes, but there are so many characters, nothing ever takes center stage. This is no Avengers, but a thoughtful, well-orchestrated adaptation of the most complex X-Men story. Evan Peters as Quicksilver delivers one of the great scenes in all of comic book film history.

James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence all get their share of great scenes as their characters are key to the future, present day 1973 and the X-Men universe going forward.

The biggest positive of all, which cannot be understated, is the redemption from the disastrous X-Men Last Stand. Days of Future Past sets up the franchise to move forward with a freedom to use old or new characters.

Overall X-Men: Days of Future Past receives 3 1/2 stars out of 5 stars.

Add a star if you are a die-hard comic book or X-Men fans, this will not disappoint.

Singer and the cast will be returning for X-Men: Apocalypse which will open in theaters on May 27, 2016.
