The reviews X-Men Days Of Future Past have been nothing but glowing.
I can happily report that this movie is amazing.
In the future, a war has killed millions, both mutant and humans. To prevent this future from happening, Professor Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to the early 1970’s. Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) is creating Sentinels that are targeting mutants. Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) is going to kill Dr. Trask, starting the war. If Wolverine can prevent Dr. Trask’s assassination, the war will not happen.
This movie is everything everyone has said and more. All of the characters from the X-Men universe are included, even those that had been killed off in previous films. It’s funny, it’s gut wrenching, it is truly the best comic book movie ever.
Hugh Jackson does the full monty (backside only) for a few moments. I’m not ashamed to say that it was a very enjoyable few moments.
Stay after the credits, there is a very interesting scene.
This movie is a must see.
