Why do the X-Men movies hate continuity? Except as far as Wolverine's casting goes, that is...
August 7, 2018
Doughily pointless... Far too much of this movie is repetitive arguments about what I think is supposed to be pacifism, and bland trailer-friendly dialogue.

An appalling, bloated film. This franchise is vast and twee -- and over.
August 17, 2017
The race against time is the only genuine threat.
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.
April 17, 2016
It doesn't so much revive the franchise as it confirms that it's still breathing. Barely.

In an age when more and more movies just feel like stepping-stones toward the next, bigger things, is it so much to ask that it be a good movie all on its own?
July 13, 2015
This isn't a bad diversion, and it'll drive all the thoughts out of your head for two hours, but ultimately all you can feel is the pressure as it tries to break your heart.
July 13, 2015
Maybe I'm getting cantankerous in my old age, but a barrage of cool special FX does not make a movie, at least not in my book, and the ongoing glut of seamless, more-real digital renderings only exacerbates the problem.

At no point does this dual-timeline setup ever feel like one unified project -- the aesthetics of mid-70's era America and the Vague Future Apocalypse are so wildly disparate as to feel like totally different movies.

The only auteurs guiding the creation of Days of Future Past are the talent agencies that put together the deal.
August 1, 2014
This is the seventh X-Men film, the fifth team movie, and we're still dealing with the same "Eric says kill the humans before they kill us" vs. "Charles says give peace a chance" plot.

I cannot recommend the film to anyone not firmly grounded in X-MEN lore

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.

How do you screw up a movie starring James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Peter Dinklage, to name a few? I'll give you a hint --- the script!
May 23, 2014
The novelty has worn off...but I think its greatest appeal will certainly be to devotees of the genre.
May 23, 2014
There's no zip, no driving force, no personality to these movies, other than what the overqualified actors manage to squeeze out of their individual scenes.
May 23, 2014
Sentinels, good, bad, future, past, who cares? This movie needs more Quicksilver!
May 23, 2014
Just solid fan service. Good action, decent actors, and a chance to see them all in action doesn't pardon the convoluted glut of messy time-travel exposition.
May 23, 2014
Amongst the flying robots and the claws coming out and the ceaseless wisecracks, there isn't really much of a human story to grab on to.
