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.

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.

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.

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.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is genuinely exciting and a complex addition to the franchise.

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.

Fast-paced, darkly foreboding and plays loose and fast with the comic book and film canon.

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.

[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.

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.

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.

It doesn't so much revive the franchise as it confirms that it's still breathing. Barely.

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."

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.
Neil Rosen
October 9, 2015
It's an ingenuous screenplay that's marvelously executed by Singer, whose return to the series is more than welcome.

The best part of this film and the best thing to happen to the franchise as a whole is the casting of Michael Fassbender as Eric Lehnsherr/Magneto and James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier.

X-Men: Days of Future Past builds upon the outstanding First Class by offering up an immensely fascinating and spectacularly entertaining storyline that just goes to show how far this franchise has come in recent years.

It's a thoroughly impressive piece of work and works on all narrative levels.

Corey Hall
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
July 13, 2015
A film loaded with snappy dialogue, winking in-jokes, and a fistful of terrific performances that add a layer of emotional resonance and moral complexity, grounding the material even as it threatens to fly away in a blizzard of flying shrapnel.

Singer eventually succumbs to the usual building destroying mayhem, but before he does, he stages two brilliant sequences early on that rank among the best set-pieces in any of these types of films.
