A good effort, but I expected more from the original comic book movie franchise

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is the fifth X-Men film (let's not include the Wolverine movies in this count) and does a good job of linking the original trilogy (2000-2006) to the 2011 prequel, 'X-Men: First Class'. The story starts off in the not-too-distant future (i.e. a decade or so after 'X-Men: The Last Stand'), where the Sentinels have almost hunted mutant-kind - and some of human-kind - to extinction. The plus side of this is that we get to see grown-up Professor X (Stewart), Magneto (McKellen), Wolverine (Jackman), Shadow Cat (Page), Storm (Berry), Iceman (Ashmore) & Colossus (Cudmore) - plus new additions Sunspot (Canto), Bishop (Sy), Warpath (Stewart) & Blink (Fan - who? Yeah, even I don't know who Blink is - some sort of weird mix between Nightcrawler & Psylocke) - and how they're living in the Terminator 4-esque future. The solution? Send Wolverine into the past to try to stop the Sentinels from being created. (I'm not sure how Shadow Cat's phasing ability inexplicably lets her transport people to the past...)

This is where - in 1973 - we're re-introduced to young Charles (McAvoy) & Eric (Fassbender). There's some good moments as they meet Wolverine for the "first" time, including drafting in Quicksilver (Peters). I'm glad they hinted that Magneto is his father, but it's a shame the same actor won't be playing him in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'. We also meet Dr Trask (Dinklage, solid as ever), the creator of the Sentinel program and find out how Mystique (Lawrence) is out to assassinate him. I'm not sure why the films have so much focus on her, when she's not really that interesting a character in the comics and certainly not as pivotal as the films make her. Beast (Hoult) is good and I'm glad they got one of the original five X-Men in there with Xavier (no sighting of Angel at all!). It all gets slightly confusing, as the "future" X-Men fight off Sentinels to stop Wolverine from coming back to the future (had to be said!), while the "past" X-Men fight Magneto, Mystique & Sentinels separately!

There's some pretty massive set pieces at the end, with all the sets/costumes of the 70s looking great/realistic too (including Nixon!), but it all seemed just a little lacklustre to me. A few things don't quite add up and I had higher expectations from the future battles, as well as from the young Professor X/Magneto dynamic. It felt to me like it was building to something massive and the pay-off wasn't quite there. Sure, it's an enjoyable ending (I'm still looking forward to 'X-Men: Apocalypse') and does a good enough job of linking the films/characters, but I think Fox bit off more than they could chew. It was a little slow in parts and Wolverine certainly seemed like a passenger with not much to do. There were certainly some fun scenes and some exciting scenes, but not enough to elevate this to 'Avengers' status.

Shot in native 3d

Credit ending titles also stated it uses 3d conversion too.The important thing it wasn't totally fake 3d,Since shooting 3d can be problems ,with the heaviness of the cameras and parallax problems and the desire for fluidity in film,there's gong to be scenes shot flat with conversion In mind too.I first saw the x men in the early 2000.I did not know that it was Hugh Jack man that played wolverine until recently .That strange hair-do has thrown confusion to his face.Now taking a time journey is impossible,but the x men and other mutants are under siege by huge Robots that were created by crooked Little shrimp,played by peter Dinklage,back in 1973.These robots are killing mutants and humans and have lost the war.Raven ,one of the mutant members ,played by Jenifer Lawrence,has turned the wrong way and has taken a time journey to kill the shrimp for killing her friends,in the future.Erik Lehnher,played by Michael Fassbender is a mutant but want to do it by himself than follow the group to stop the robots in the past.With the leader By both McClellan and Stewart ,who is physically disabled, they get Wolverine ,played by Hugh Jackmen,to take a astral projected journey back to 1973,without the sexual paraphernalia of the time ,included in the back drop.To try to persuade Raven to be more constructive rather than revengeful.He ends up meeting A young Patrick Stewart ,before he got paralyzed ,now played by James Mcavoy,and a new character call the beast,played by Nicholas Hoult.The rest of the x members in the future ,played by Omar Cy and Ellen Page and Halle Berry ,Booboo Stewart ,have to hold the fort until the future can be changed .Some times Raven disguises her self as Rogue,played by Anna Panquin.Richard Nixon is played as a good guy ,we all know he wasn't.In this fantasy it seems that mutants existed in the 70's and now there was a desire to get rid of them.Excellent special effects .Good performance from Jennifer Lawrence ,McAvoy, Jackman,the sets ,like China in the future and those Robots,it's worth the watch on Blu-ray 3D or 2D and DVD version flat.12/28/17

Solid...when it takes itself less seriously.

Rumor has it that DC has a new "no joke" policy for its movies. Not sure that this is true, but this movie works best when it laughs: history jokes and character tensions and winks at the camera. The moments of fun are great, and the moments of seriousness are almost unintentionally amusing. A little too much. Comics were never meant to be literature, and this movie mostly remembers that. A fun ride.
