4.0 out of 5 stars Patience isn't my strong suit....., 28 May 2014
This review is from: X-Men: Days of Future Past [Blu-ray + UV Copy] (Blu-ray)
It's 2023, mutants are being hunted by Sentinels, robots that can adapt into any mutant powers, things that even X-Men cannot defeat.

With Kitty Pryde's time-hopping ability, they send Wolverine to 1973 to change history and prevent this dystopia from materialising......

So Singer took his time to come back to the franchise that arguably started the comic book behemoth we now know hits every summer like a freight train, and although it's a wonderful movie, it's not the master piece you would be led to believe..

The story and narrative are wonderful, and Goldman and Vaughn have created a story that respects the first two movies, and their First Class, but totally dismissing the third film, and parts of the Origins and last years narrative.

As expected, Jackman is the main focus here, and his Logan hasn't been this good or cocky since X2, and the film is 'First Class' whenever he is on screen.

Fassbender and McAvoy bring the acting chops to the movie, particularly Fassbender, who is at once charming and deeply menacing as Young Erik, usurping his first turn.

The connotations to the time frame that it's set in (the assassination of JFK, and the use of old school cameras), is excellent and seamless, and the set pieces are some of the best of the franchise, especially the Quicksilver scene, and the opening attack.

But as is the case with movies with a huge cast, many are left out of the mix.

Quite noticeable is Berry, who literally has two lines in the film, and the same goes for Stewart and Mckellen, even though they are still a great presence in the movie, you cannot help but think that they are there for novelty value only, as they really didn't need to be in the film.

But all in all, it's a great movie, with one of the best end credit sequences ever.
