Movie Story

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) is a superhero movie based upon the X-Men characters created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first published by Marvel Comics. It is the seventh film in the X-Men series that began with X-Men (2000).

 

The plot revolves around the attempts of the shape-shifting Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to avert catastrophe for both humans and mutants by travelling back in time to 1973 to change the course of history. More specifically, he has to prevent Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from assassinating Dr Bolivar Trask, creator of the mutant-hunting robots known as Sentinels: if Mystique succeeds she will be captured and have her DNA (and with it her super-powers) incorporated into the Sentinels, who will become virtually unbeatable. With the aid of Charles Xavier and fellow-mutants Beast and Magneto, Wolverine saves Trask, only for the Sentinels to come under the control of Magneto, who occupies the White House and threatens the lives of President Nixon and his cabinet, until thwarted by Mystique. Returning to the future, a climactic battle is fought between the besieged X-Men and an army of Sentinels bent on destroying mutants and humans alike.

 

The film was directed by Bryan Singer, who directed the first two X-Men films. Besides Jackman and Lawrence, the star-studded cast includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. The movie was hailed as the best film so far in the X-Men series and attracted praise for the quality of the acting, the clever plot, the special effects and the thrilling action sequences. It also became the first X-Men film to be nominated for an Oscar (for Best Visual Effects).

    This is arguably the best film in the X-Men franchise to date. It rushes along at a cracking pace and is jam-packed with action sequences and stunning special effects. The acting’s pretty good too, even if the plot’s a bit chaotic at times with so many characters involved.

    This has to be one the more enjoyable films within the X-Men franchise. I thought that both the story and the acting were extremely well done. Jennifer Lawerence, Nicholas Hoult, and James McAvoy do a wonderful job throughout the entire film.

    X-Men: Days of Future Past is the seventh film in the X-Men series and it does not disappoint. Inspired by the “Days of Future Past” storyline from the comics in the early eighties, the film does a decent job of delivering a majority of the narrative from the comic with surprising accuracy.

      X-Men Days of Future Past is the best for me so far among the X-Men Franchise. It expected it not to disappoint and indeed it has not disappointed. This movie is the epitome of action movies for me. This is a movie I can comfortably watch over and over again and never at any single moment get bored because of doing so.

      Bryan Singer did a very nice job on this one. There are plenty of characters, yet I still felt attached to many of them. The movie was great, it is almost as if he took all of the mistakes from previous X-Men movies and just fixed them! There was plenty of clever humor and some amazing action sequences.

      I must also mention that it starts fast! There is no need to wait for the movie to become interesting, it just is from the get-go!

      I agree with all of you who have commented on this movie. The number of characters is simply amazing and it is true this one is a masterpiece. It has avoided most of the mistakes that could be seen in the previous X-men movies. This is a movie worth watching.

      Arguably the strongest instalment in the X-Men cinematic universe, X-Men: Days of Future Past benefits from a strong cast and confident direction by series veteran Bryan Singer. The film is expertly paced, building up steam throughout its lengthy running time and, importantly, managing to stick the landing.
