This is without debut one of the best comic books movies I ever saw, story, characters, music, especial effects, everything is great, this is how x-men should be in the firs place, but too bad they ruin it again in x-men apocalypses. Still love it. great job.
It was alright. Nice seeing some of the old cast reunited. Decent action sequences throughout. Pretty good story loosely based off a comic story arc. Not sure why Kitty Pryde has the power to send Hugh Jackman's consciousness back through time though. *SPOILERS* The best scene in the movie by far was the use of Quicksilver's super-speed to help Magneto escape his prison. Time travel element changes the outcome of things that happened in the first trilogy which was kinda nice from an emotional level.
Great movie that doesn't overuse Wolverine (he's really just a macguffin to get the plot moving and give the movie a ticking clock). Having Stewart and McKellen reprise their roles for the 'future' parts was fun and lent credibility to the plot point that the future really is at stake. I'm definitely a sucker for time-travel movies, especially ones that go for the 'go back to the past to save the future' story.
Really good, but a tad confusing if you don't already know the story (mainly concerning magneto grabbing his helmet in the past - how could he even do that when his helmet was in the future Cerebrus chamber? Where were they???). Also, why does the helmet look different than the one Kevin Bacon wore in X-Men: First Class?
As a person who enjoys watching the X-men movies, I certainly found this an enjoyably awesome movie. As a movie is as a legitmate film a whole is a different story but if you enjoy X-Men, chances are you probably really like this movie. Its like The Last Stand if it amounted to something grand at the end.
Fantastic film. A somewhat complicated plot is told so well that it is easy to follow. Builds on the fantastic First Class with the addition of Wolverine. The 70s setting is the perfect backdrop to the political drama.
Days of future past brings together everything great about the series, fantastic performances by this incredible ensemble of cast members, spectacular action set pieces, and a truly engaging story of time travel and human prejudice. It's most notable featurse might be that it erases the past movies in order to start anew, for better or for worse, the second feature being that it is based on one of the greatest comic books in X-men history. This is the reset button on the series, that will hopefully bring it back on track.
X-Men is probably has been the most consistent and inconsistent comic book film franchises in history. To see the continuation of an original generation and the younger generation come together in a cohesive story is not easy to figure out. However, it happens to serve the best X-Men film to date. The balance is a bit off between the two timelines, but the characters and the tension between humans and mutants is very prominent. The action in this movie is chilling, yet the real battle is in the characters themselves. Luckily the emphasis on drama doesn't turn you off, as it gives you the biggest struggles in the X-Men universe.
The best superhero crossover as well as a movie that really feels like a conclusion of the arcs established in all the previous films, it even solves the unsolvable continuity issues. Magneto was right, hamnity does genocide mutants. Charles Xavier continues to believe in his dream, despite knowing of the dystopian future.
An all star cast and the urge to rectify and start afresh let this hybrid structured sequel pull off a nearly impossible task, with a foe named Trask -- alongside a promising storyline and a bunch of scene stealing specials.
