X-Men: Days of Future Past review (spoiler free)


8/10 ★★★★★★★★☆☆

 X-Men: Days of Future Past is an American Marvel/20th Century Fox/Disney movie directed by Bryan Singer and stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence.

In a distant future the world is taken over by a robot alliance called the sentinels. Wolverine is sent back to 1973 to stop a man from making these robots by the mistake of Mystique trying to assassinate him.

You know the phrase "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"? well the X-Men franchise was breaking and this movie fixed it. So as you may know the director, Bryan Singer directed the first two X-Men then was replaced by Brett Ratner and destroyed everything. However, you can see in this movie that Bryan Singer was not impressed with what Brett Ratner did and he was like "Step aside and let me show you how a man takes care of this." The plot was great, the acting was great (some people were not the best actors but none of the lead roles were terrible actors.) You also see Peter Dinklage (you know that small person that was the angry elf in Elf?) who plays Dr. Bolivar Trask, the guy who creates the sentinels and he kills it in this role. It seems he was put on this Earth to say his lines in this movie. Hugh Jackman is what you would usually expect out of him playing as the Wolverine. Also in this movie, it is mainly about Charles Xavier (which for some reason I have been avoiding) and in the past he is this completely different dude than what he was in X-Men: First Class. You can see his life took a turn for the worse and it is not pretty. He is dark, he is depressing but it is good. This movie really shows you how Charles became what he is today and I loved every single minute of it.

In the end I would say see this movie for full price. It is recommended but not required. But this movie is complete awesome. And as always if you liked my review you can bookmark this page. Thanks for reading.
