Best performances by both Hugh Jack and Patrick Stewart in the franchise, best X-Men movie so far and if this movie was released in November last year, I might push for it to be one of the best picture nominees. This is not a superhero movie, more like a Western whose main character happens to have an Adamantium claws in him. High recommended especially for the fans of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine.
I have seen the movie four times by now, so I think I kind of know what it is about. I won't tell but I'm pretty sure that not everybody will love it, it is about the power of communication, I think. This is an alien encounter movie but don't expect to follow the similar plot of most movies with the same genre. Yes, there is a strong threat of having a war all throughout the movie but I don't think it is the selling point of it though. The film is more like an exploration and discovery of a culture that we are not familiar and how we really deal with it as a human race.
The director probably watched Mad Max: Fury Road and thought he can make a movie like that, he tried and failed miserably. Yes it has ton of action sequences which was spliced, cut and edited to infinity that people with migraine will find this excruciating. Stupid plot and it had a really pointless twist that made no sense at all. Skip.
This movie for me is an anomaly, it's already hard enough to find someone who likes classic, musical or jazz then how much more for a movie that is all about those three things, finding the audience who will like this film is almost impossible. This is a type of movie that should be just a niche with a cult following and it should not be this good or let alone be this popular. It is a modern film with classic undertone, okay a cliche romantic-comedy with singing, dancing and jazz. The main characters are not perfect, the relationship is far from ideal and both the singing and dancing of Emma Stone, who gave her best performance, and Ryan are not "professional" looking. Don't expect for the singers to belt a high note or expect a Step-up type of dancing and that is why I love this film, the character's imperfect singing and dancing was perfect for me because it represents their imperfect relationship but both tried to make it work and this movie works because of that. I honestly could not find anything that is wrong about this, from the awesome continuous shot at the start to the one of the best ending sequence ever. It is as good as a movie could get.
