Movie Review : X-Men Days of Future Past
I enjoyed this movie. However, there were some elements that felt rushed to me. Like when Logan has a minor setback at seeing someone from his past – he seems to recover quickly. I would think he would have gone after the guy, then Xavier tell him that they need him to help change the future, etc. So that was a dramatic moment kind of shrugged off rather than pursued as well as it could have.
I did like the special effects and the cause/effect of changing the past. The special effects were nicely done and didn’t distract from the movie. I thought the plot was fairly solid and the story engaging.
I wonder if they’ll create an alternate universe kind of thing since a major player of Magneto’s may not side with him anymore. And there are some return characters with the future (from 1973) being reset.
This movie includes characters (actors) form the X-Men: First Class movie so we see a younger Xavier, Beast, Magneto, and Mystic. As usual, Wolverine (Huge Jackman) had the best lines.
The movie shows the struggles of addiction, conforming to society, and determination.
Besides the lack of following through on a dramatic point that I mentioned in the first paragraph, I wished the characters in the future were given a little more time for character development and knowing who they are (or even their names) besides just battling and waiting for the sentinels.
My rating 4.5/5
According to statistics, this X-Men movie is the highest grossing film out of all of them and included critical acclaim.
Overall, this X-Men movie was worth watching, especially if you like the other movies. I’m anxious now to see the next X-Men movie 🙂
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
