X-Men: Days of Future Past

Go see this movie
So I'm a little late on this. I was supposed to go see X-Men: Days of Future Past on opening weekend, but shit happened. So here's the review for those of you who have yet to see it and aren't sure if you want to.

Let's get started then. Because it's a ridiculously long title for the rest of the review I am just going to call it DOFP. DOFP was directed by Bryan Singer, and he did a pretty alright job. DOFP contained all of the usual player. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Professor X (Patrick Stewart (old), James McAvoy (young)),  Magneto (Ian McKellen (old), Michael Fassbender (young)), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence),  and so many more fabulous actors who played fabulous parts. The cast and the acting quality is probably not what you are concerned about. I don't think anybody can say any of the actors in the X-Men franchise were poorly picked.

It's the plot that you're probably worried about. DOFP opens with an apocalyptic type landscape and the implication of war and bad luck for future mutants, and then jumps into an epic fight scene and then time travel and stuff. Not bad. The plot is basically oh no bad shit happened and now we gotta use Kitty Pryde's (Ellen Page) powers to fix the things that Mystique did that accidentally caused all these robots to be able to take us all out. I don't think the plot was as confusing as everyone thought it was going to be. I think maybe people were over thinking it. Like I took my friend who had only seen the first X-Men movie and she wasn't even confused.

I did have a little tiny problem though. Not enough older mutants. I was really really really looking forward to seeing Storm (Halle Berry) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) and a lot of other cool characters from the first three movies, but there was a major lack. They basically got two small (but awesome) fight scenes. One at the beginning and one at the end. So I was a little disappointing in the lack of awesome older mutants. We did see a lot of Wolverine though, which is so expected I could cry. Don't get me wrong, I love Wolverine, but why does he got to be a major role in everything.

Overall I really liked it. Since it's in it's last few weeks the theater was pretty empty and if you need something to do for two hours you might as well check this out. If you've seen the other X-Men movies then the ending to this is going to make you go AHFJHDKSDLJH. So yeah. Totally worth the forty bucks going to the movies yanks out of your pocket.

I give this movie four stars
