The setup really doesn't make sense, both from a comic book point of view (How can Kitty Pryde send people back through time?) and simply based on the film's internal logic (Why can Wolverine survive going back in time again?), but setting that aside, comic book films don't really get much better than this. The plot is driven by actions that emerge from the way the characters are drawn. They are given clear goals driven by their personal philosophies and act in ways that reasonably pursue those goals. This may not sound like much of a virtue, but for a big budget, effects driven action film, it's impressive. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender turn in terrific performances, and Hugh Jackman keeps up with them. There are flaws ... the 70s sequences are far too 70s at times, for example ... but it's reall at the peak of its genre.
An early Capra melodrama with Stanwyck starring as a corrupt evangelist loosely based on Aimee Semple McPherson. She falls in love with blind veteran David Manners and has a change of heart, which doesn't sit well with the con man pulling her strings. Quite a few similarities to "Elmer Gantry", which was published a few years before this.
