Review: Days of Future Past is the best of X-Men in quality and quantity


They are all back together and the fun of all X-Men movies is summed up into this extravaganza. X-Men: Days of Future Past is a meticulous display of taut writing and scintillating performances. This feature film exceeds your massive expectations by reasons only known to its makers. Writers Simon Kinberg, Jase Goldman and Mathew Vaughn have carved a tale of a lifetime.

The X-Men and humans are on the brink of extinction because of the Mystique’s (Jennifer Lawrence) first kill in 1973, Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), during which she is apprehended and her DNA triggers the inception of modern warheads known as Sentinels. These Sentinels have the ability to adapt and mimic mutants rendering them as invincible. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is sent to 1973 by Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to undo the murder and show the humans “a better path”. What follows is a ride you don’t want to end.

The chemistry of X-Men: First Class between Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) is taken notches above. Our “pretty” Mystique gets a bigger role owing her Hunger Games success, which she does with panache. Peter Dinklage proves that he is definitely irreplaceable. Hugh Jackman manages a clout as always. Bingbing Fang is smart and pretty as Blink. Our legends Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Patrick Stewart (Professor X) are wiser than before to come together. Peter Maximoff (Peter Evans) is brilliant and has a superb scene.

Director Bryan Singer is not just brilliant but has entered into a league of classic filmmaking. His vision is too perfect to find a flaw. He has extracted the best out of the best stars. The film deserves a special mention for its clinical editing. The music is awesome, although X-Men: First Class had a better score.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is absolutely the movie of this summer. Its 3D visuals are superb. This film is mesmerizing enough to be watched multiple times. No more hiding!
