5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to XMen Series, 14 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great film-perfect addition to the series. Storyline is very similar to The Terminator in that in the future machines called the Senitels wipe out humans and mutants alike in a big war. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is sent back to 1973 by Charles & Eric ( Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) in order to get a young Charles (James McAvoy), Eric (Michael Fassbender), Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) and the Beast (Nicholas Hoult) to work together in order to prevent the Senitels coming into existance. This has amazing special effects as you would expect from an XMen Film, deals with moral issues such as what makes people different and how people come to terms with their own differences), has cameos from most of the other characters in the series like Halle Berry as Storm, Scott and Jean and ties up all the loose ends and questions asked by the previous films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the series, 2 Jan. 2015

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
Super hero movies and the technology behind them have advanced a lot since the first X-Men film, and you notice it with this latest in the series. The characters and their powers are very convincingly brought to life from the comic books and the screenplay for this one is the best so far. The action is real edge of seat stuff, the 3D Blu Ray is excellent, the depth and motion come across very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars What the X-men franchise it truly capable of!, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this along with First class shows what the x-men films are capable of. the cast of the X-men films have never been bad, but the plot used before have ruined it for me as characters are killed that are not suppose to (spoiler alert) this films thankfully undoes all of this and repairs the x-men universe. the plot is based on one of the original X-men comics and I think one of the best.

The films cast are brilliant making young Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Prof X (James McAvoy) meet Magneto (Ian Mckellen) and Prof X (Patrick Stewart) senior. The acting by both of them is brilliant as well as other cast members, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage and Nicholas Hoult.

the effects are very good, and are necessary for the film to work, as it would do no good for wolverine to be missing his claws.

if you are planing on watching this film wait until the end of the credits as this will show you the short clip, which will lay the foundations for X-men apocalypse, set to be released (2016).

5.0 out of 5 stars 'ANOTHER ENJOYABLE X-MEN SPECTACLE', 10 Nov. 2014

Key-Cast
'Charles' Past - 'James McAvoy' Future - 'Patrick Stewart
'Eric' Past - 'Michael Fassbender' Future - 'Ian Mckellen'
'Logan/Wolverine' 'Hugh Jackman'
'Raven/Mistique 'Jennifer Lawrence'
'Blink' - 'Bingbing Fan'
'Bobby/Iceman' - 'Shawn Ashmore'
'Storm' 'Halle Berry'
'Hank/Beast' 'Nicholas Hoult'
'Kitty Pryde' 'Ellen Page'
'Peter/Quick Silver 'Evan Peters'
'Bishop' 'Omar Sy'
'Doctor Bolivar Trask' 'Peter Dinklage'

(a brief guide to the story's outline)
Earth of tomorrow has been laid to waste by the unstoppable 'Sentinel-Robots' who have hunted down 'Mutants'
and Humans' alike.
'Charles' and indeed 'Eric' have assembled a team to try and find a way to change the events of 1973 where it had
all began, and to try to save the future of both 'Mutants' and 'Mankind' alike.
In 1973 the presence and actions of 'Mistique' shaped what was to come, she tried to kill 'Doctor Trask' who is
heading a campaign to rid the world of 'Mutants' by creating the 'Sentinel-Robots' the D.N.A of 'Mistique' if captured
could be used to enhance the ability of the robots to counter anything the Mutants could throw at them.
Because of his ability to regenerate his injured cells when damaged only 'Logan' could be sent back that far in time with
the special new-found teleporting skills possessed by 'Kitty'
Back in 1973 he returns to where he would have been at that time, though now, as his future self, he has to gather the
support of the then young'Charles' of in the hope of gathering enough support to change the future, 'Logan' has to convince
'Charles' that he had been sent back by him from the future, and the urgency of the mission he was there for.
They will need the help of 'Charles's' former friend 'Eric'(Magneto) who is held prisoner in 'The Pentagon' to achieve this
they will need the special skills of 'Peter/Quick Silver'
When together rumblings of what the future holds between 'Charles' and 'Eric' are simmering as they , 'Charles' wanting
a way to co-exist with human kind, 'Eric' wanting to rule them, for now they have tp put aside their differences for the
futures sake.
Can 'Mistique' be prevented from carrying out her historic mission, or can negotiation and reasoning prevent a bleak future
for both the 'Mutants' and 'Human-Kind' will 'Logan's' mission into the past succeed.
This is a superb X-Men offering that should not be missed if you have followed the series in recent years.
Again 'Marvel' brings an enjoyable visual-spectacle to the screen, with awesome special effects.........great picture and sound
quality throughout.( Great 3-D )

4.0 out of 5 stars Sequels,Prequels,they can,occasionally, be good !, 25 Mar. 2015
The story exploits the one aspect the X-Men (...Wolverine,to be more accurate...)had not,so far,been involved with.Time travel-and changing the future !
The movie is good entertainment,the story is irrelevant. The one point worth repeating is that ever since Hugh Jackman portrayed Wolverine,he has "carried the series away "with him.He is the one character that makes all others fade away.Even the ones portrayed by great (as well as visibly aged...) actors such as Patrick Stewart and Ian MacKellen.He is manly,he is handsome,he is sexy,he is violent and,most of all,he is Saturnine.He .therefore,prevails,and saves the day,with ease.Oh,yes.He has also become a "thinking man", slowly distancing himself from his original beastly image.
A pleasant addition in the series.Easy to watch and to spend two entertaining hours.That about sums it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine blend, 4 Feb. 2015
By 
Richard Morton (Bristol, England) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
So the bands (mostly) all back together in the most stuffed and stacked X-Men film yet. I'm a big fan of the First Class reinvention and whilst this wasn't quite as good as that flick for me, it's still pretty damn fine all the same.

Fans on the comics will likely be familiar with the Days of Future Past storyline - this version tweaks things in places to fit the cinematic X-Men universe and it works well enough. The basics are that we start with a version of the X-Men team struggling to stay alive in a dystopian world before Wolverine is sent back in time to the X-Men First Class era where the younger versions of these characters are picking up the pieces after the end of the previous movie. Wolvies plans are to change the present by changing the past - things don't necessarily go according to plan though..........

There's a boat load of characters knocking around in this one as you can imagine - both old and new. Some of them are slightly short changed but such is life, there's a lot to get through in a movie that runs just a little over 2 hours. At its core it's still really about Xavier, Magneto, Raven, Beast and Wolverine with the others filling in the gaps (brilliantly and explosively mind you).

The pace of the film is fairly relentless, it all flies along in a fun blend of action set pieces - it's certainly not boring. Without giving too much away, the latter stages are quite fitting and opens up many possibilities for future instalments while righting a few wrongs along the way.

Overall, Bryan Singers return to the X-Men fold has proved very welcome - nicely stitching together his previous work with what has come since. Very much recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-Tastic, 31 May 2014
This is the most dramatic, emotional and best X-Men movie I have ever had the pleasure of watching. You feel an emotional attachment to all the mutants even the one's that don't have much screen time, and the fight sequences in the movie are very well done my favourite being the opening fight sequence.

With it being a time travel movie I expected to pick the movie apart, but the time travel aspects are very well done there was never really a point where I was confused. The main reason this is the best X-Men movie is that all the main characters and side characters have their moment in the spotlight, the dialogue is great and the drama in the movie is very well thought out. My favourite scene in the entire movie is the confrontation between Xavier and Eric on the Plane it gave me goosebumps.

All the performances in DOFP are top notch James Mcavoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence are absolutely amazing in this movie Jennifer has made a vast improvement over her First Class performance to the point where I can say that she gives Rebecca Romijn's Mystique a run for her money and this is not a Wolverine movie, he is relegated to the sidelines and I have to say it works very well. It's very refreshing to see a much more calm Wolverine on screen Hugh Jackman's performance is arguably his best as Wolverine overall I was blown away by this latest X-Men installment and can't wait until Apocalypse.

4.0 out of 5 stars X Men now and then, 14 Nov. 2014
By 
Paul Tapner (poole dorset england) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)

Another superhero movie featuring those superpowered mutants. This one is based on, or perhaps it's better to say 'inspired by' X-Men: Days of Future Past, a popular X Men comic story from a while back. Which saw a future Earth decimated by mutant hunting robots the Sentinels, and the surviving mutants there using time travel to enlist the aid of their younger selves to stop said future from coming to be.

As is the case here.

The film opens on a nightmare future Earth where the out of control Sentinels are targeting all life. And only the surviving mutants - good, bad, ones you've not seen on the big screen before, and one's you've not seen on the big screen in a while - stand in their way, fighting a losing battle.

Their only hope: sending Wolverine's mind back in time to the 1970's, where the Sentinels began, and putting it in the body of his younger self. To enlist the help of mutants then.

But as an obsessed scientist begins work on the sentinels, and an obsessed mutant is out to get him, their only hope might be their worst enemy...

There's a lot to like here. It's a generally satisfying blockbuster. With new characters. Super Speedster Quicksilver makes a great impression, thanks not least to one great set piece showing how he uses his power. There's great period detail. Good action set pieces. And a lot of humour arising out of character interaction.

But it's just not quite a five star movie. Simply because it's not as epic as you might have expected, or been led to believe by the trailers. Most of the future set action is very confined in location, and very few characters actually get much to do.

Also it doesn't really follow through on everything that 'X Men First Class' set up.

But it's watchable and entertaining, and well worth a look.

Then there's the ending. Which is best described as audacious. And which will leave you wanting to see where the franchise goes next. For a hint of that, keep watching to the very end of the credits.

The disc has the following language and subtitle options:

Languages:

English
Castilian Spanish
Italian

Subtitles:

English
Castilian Spanish
Danish
Finnish
Italian
Norwegian
Swedish

The back of the box only says English, but I have checked the disc and this is what the menu on there lists.

It begins with a trailer for the forthcoming biblical movie Exodus: Gods and Kings. Which can't be skipped and can only be gotten through quickly via the fast forward button.

Extras are as cursory as usual for dvd's nowadays:

Gag reel: One minute of the cast pulling funny faces. Three minutes of some genuinely funny outtakes. And one minute of the cast clowning around.

Gallery: Trask industries. Three sets of stills showing imagery used in the film for various aspects of the character's work [the first lot of which do answer some questions as to what happened in between first class and this].

The three two minute long cinema trailers for the film. Which can be watched individually or all in a row.

Sneak peek: Exodus: Gods and Kings. The aforementioned trailer for it once again. And a cursory one minute long look at the film's production.
