Based on the saying, “Less is More”, Days of Future Past Takes this to heart and makes it work really well. It’s a lot of talking and trying to get things resolved to make the future better for all, not just the “Anti-Mutant movement” with a great action ending. The movie starts off in X-Men fashion in the deep, darkness of whats left of the world after the Sentinels “cleanse” the world of mutants and mutant supporters and have to send Wolverine back in time to stop all this from happening. From there Wolverine is back in the 1970’s, with all the fashions and the big hair of back in the day.
DoFP starts up 10 years after first class, has some great effects and a great storyline, (even if it dismisses/nixes most of the previous movies) and sets things up for another great sequel in 2016. Fassbender as the dark and brooding Magneto is still amazing and James McAvoy as Professor X is a great substitute for the aged Patrick Stewart, as well as the story following the comics quite accurately, with some deviations.
Another great comic book movie for most movie goers that doesn’t disappoint, and good for nearly everyone aged 13-50.
I give this movie 8 out of 10 popcorns.
Rated PG- 13 for sequences of intense sci-fi violence and action, some suggestive material, nudity and language
