Movie Review: X Men: Days of Future Past

The weekend after our vacay, we headed to the movies to see..
 X-Men! I love this series..unlike some of the others, these just seem to get better and better.
This one had all of the original cast members in it that weren't in some of the previous movies. The movie opened up showing us the future. There were only a few of the mutants who'd survived up to this point and it was up to Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to save the day! (with the help of Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page). The writers went back to show us exactly how Charles Xavier/Professor X (James McAvoy) got the notion to start his school which would be the focal point in the upcoming films. 
Sensing danger coming, Wolverine is sent back in the past with instructions to find Professor X and Magneto (Ian McKellar) who were much different then. It is up to him to convince them to come together and change the past in an attempt to change the future. Professor X is found first; he not only has hair but can also walk!
  • I loved it that the old cast was able to come back together! 
  • The screenplay was very well written. It wasn't mumbled together and it didnt seem like they were rushing through it just to get to the end
  • The action was amazing
  • There was a sense of humor. Loved that! The Quick Silver (Evan Peters) addition...Genius!
  • Unless you've read the reviews beforehand or knew the screen play, I found it hard to figure out the movie was actually starting in the just opened up and there were a few of the mutants on the screen
  •  We never actually saw everyone get killed, it was just left to assume since they were not there
  • I love Wolverine, but I would have loved him even more if somehow he were able to take another mutant back with him such such as Storm for example!

Stars: 4 out of 5 
We love Marvel movies around here so I may be kind of bias but go see this film! Its so good. The beauty of the whole thing is that you don't have to have seen the previous movies to know exactly what was going on. Actually I think it would be even better if you haven't seen any of the other movies This is the perfect movie to turn skeptics into believers! 


  1. Can't wait to see this!! We love Marvel movies here as well. They are so entertaining and usually have pretty good story lines.
