X-Men: Days of Future Past

Jays Rating:

After being at the helm for the first two X-Men movies, Brian Singer returns to direct the best of all the mutant super hero films, the action adventure, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Just a few years into the future and Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and the rest of the X-Men are relentlessly being hunted and killed by intelligent robots called Sentinels. Professor X figures out the only way to stop the slaughter is to go back in time to change the past. Since the mutant who goes back in time will most likely die from the time travel, Logan aka Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) volunteers for the trip because his body can heal instantly. When Wolverine arrives in 1973, he finds a much younger Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Wolverine locates Peter (Evan Peters), a super fast mutant named Quicksilver who breaks Erik Lehnsherr aka Magneto (Michael Fassdender) out of prison to help the X-Men. The problem is Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) is going to be captured so her DNA can be used to enable the Sentinel robots to adapt to any mutant powers they battle. Now a fight begins between the weaker robots, the much younger X-Men, and even some new mutants to help change the future. This is a fantastic film with a superb story, tons of action, a touch of humor, time travel, and Quantum Physics. (Okay, maybe I didn’t understand the Quantum Physics part but it gives the audience something to talk about after the movie.) Even with those positive comments it’s still the actors and their characters that make this film so great. There are 7 Academy Award and Golden Globe winners in this group and some won both awards. The film is full of old and new characters like Storm, Rogue, Beast, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, Bishop and I already mentioned Quicksilver who stole the show. By the way this is the seventh X-Men or Wolverine film Hugh Jackman has been cast, obviously making him a fan favorite. I’m looking really hard (No pun intended) to find a flaw with this movie and they only thing I can find is that the film may lag a little on some scenes. I’m giving this future blockbuster an A- rating.

This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA
