X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

US 131m, Colour
Director: Bryan Singer; Cast: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart

X-Men-Days-Future-PastDays of Future Past is yet another installment in the Marvel Comics X-Men series. With time travel at the heart of its story, this is a brilliantly cast and engaging feature that sees Wolverine traveling back to 1973 to save the future from a war waged by machines that has all but destroyed humanity. Perhaps the best X-Men movie in the franchise to-date, this dark and comedic installment weaves together past and present cast and story lines into a meaningful plot which does not simply rely on action, mutant powers and special effects to be entertaining (Klaus Ming July 2015).

    “Perhaps the best X-Men movie in the franchise to-date…”

    I guess it probably is. I hadn’t thought of it in those terms.

    I’ve just been watching the “Rogue Cut” expanded version, and I may write something about it on my blog.

    Quick summary: one-third good additions, one-third unnecessary stuff, and one-third fan service. The last is mostly okay with me, since I am a fan (X-Men #1 was one of the first comic books I ever bought).

      The franchise continues to surprise me in its reinvention of itself, casts, timelines and story lines. i haven’t seen the “Rogue Cut” — though such extended editions are usually disappointing in my experience – even when I’m a fan of the original film.
