X-Men: Days of Future Past SPOILER-FREE Review
In the day where so many superhero movies come out, it's hard to find one that's not only fun, exciting and funny, but is also well written, well acted and overall not just a good comic film, but also a good action movie, science fiction movie and just a good movie period. X-Men: Days of Future Past accomplishes this. When the future is overridden by the mutant-hunting drones called Sentinels, the X-Men's only hope is to send Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) consciousness 50 years back into the past in 1973 to prevent the assassination of Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) which would ultimately lead to the construction of the Sentinels. Wolverine must unite a drunk and distraught Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and an imprisoned Magento (Michael Fassbender) who, at the time, could not be worse of enemies. Wolverine must unite them in order to change the past to save the future.
The movie is almost flawless and one of the best superhero movies made. In my personal opinion, it is the best X-Men film made to date. The acting is the best acting I have seen in a superhero movie (with exception to Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight) and the script is perfectly written. Bryan Singer's direction is great. Also in my opinion, this is my favorite movie of the year so far and the best comic book film of the year. When you see it, make sure you stick around after the credits. There is a teaser for the next film, X-Men: Apocolypse.
