Critic Reviews for X-Men: Days of Future Past

All Critics (312) | Top Critics (56)

  • It is especially impressive that Days of Future Past is a success; a film this gooey and complex, with such business-minded scope, should not feel like a real movie at all.

  • Here's the thing about comic book heroes. Despite all the noble talk about metaphors, idealism, truth and justice, they're basically just bully-boy fantasies of limitless male aggression... The X-Men, however, have always aspired to something different.

  • Much of this takes place in the early 1970s, which gives the filmmakers an excuse to haul out lots of vintage kitsch and make some rather tasteless references to the Vietnam war.

  • The results are both dazzling and intimate, clever and - during one tour-de-force sequence - spectacularly funny.

    May 28, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • I would be remiss not to note that tucked away amid all the existential melodrama is perhaps the most hilarious set piece ever to grace a superhero film.

    May 23, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Quicksilver ... is the coolest of this picture's new guys, zipping around so fast ... that he can taste soup, rearrange guards' limbs, and nudge bullets off their trajectories all in the time it takes to blink.
