Days 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).
