October 19, 2017
Overall, X-Men: Days of Future Past is slick fun, in the tradition of slick, fun summer movies. Just don't start thinking about the plot, because it won't hold together.
August 17, 2017
This is a movie with one of those diamond casts, full of award winners and nominees, and not one of them tries to overdo their role or gobble up screen time.

The race against time is the only genuine threat.
March 10, 2017
Director Bryan Singer infuses some actual humour up in this piece, and even though the whole thing is a sprawling, stupid mess (JFK?), it's entertaining, which is the best you can hope for in a series on track to outpace Nightmare on Elm Street.
September 22, 2016
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.
July 14, 2016
X-Men: Days of Future Past is, on its own, a fine film, funny in all the right places, impressively acted, and rousing in its action.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 20, 2016
Their position in the league has slipped since Iron Man and co. But this one shows the X-Men still play a good mental game, one more suited for grown-ups who like their superpowered characters rubbing up against history and the real world.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 15, 2016
Yes, it's a Marvel cartoon, but don't underestimate this very entertaining summer blockbuster's ability to shift our collective consciousness. It can tinker with your dogma.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 13, 2016
X-Men: Days of Future Past is genuinely exciting and a complex addition to the franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 13, 2016
It's an absolutely lavish bouquet to series fans, who get to see the entire X-saga summarized and effectively reconceived through Wolverine's desperate and time-addled perceptions.
June 13, 2016
Fast-paced, darkly foreboding and plays loose and fast with the comic book and film canon.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 13, 2016
X-Men: Days of Future Past is a smart, inspiring piece of filmmaking that will satisfy even the most discriminating comic book snob.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 13, 2016
Well, if you're going to see only one comic-book superhero movie this summer, X-Men: Days of Future Past looks like your best bet.
June 13, 2016
[Bryan Singer] returns to give the franchise a needed energy boost, and while the dialogue's heavy on exposition, the action sequences feature enough crazy mutant superpowers to keep things reliably entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 13, 2016
This is a bloated splurge of special effects and gamey acting -- to say it's no worse than last month's Spider-Man film is to point up the lacklustre year it's been so far for blockbusters.
June 6, 2016
There's a goofy boldness to the way they take the current awkward trend of rebooting a popular series and make it the literal goal of the mutants themselves.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 17, 2016
It doesn't so much revive the franchise as it confirms that it's still breathing. Barely.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 9, 2015
The teenaged Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters... grants this sometimes unwieldy lot of exposition a brilliantly entertaining set-piece, as he speeds around a prison chamber to the tune of Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle."
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
October 9, 2015
It doesn't deliver as many "wow" moments as one might hope for, but as far as the X-Men franchise is concerned, it's one of the better installments.
October 9, 2015
It's an ingenuous screenplay that's marvelously executed by Singer, whose return to the series is more than welcome.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
