    Once every couple of years, a movie comes along to remind us how satisfyingly complex the genre can be. Christopher Nolan’s reimagining of the “Batman” saga did that masterfully. On a slightly less ambitious scale, so does X-Men: Days of Future Past.

    To reboot the X-Men franchise, director Bryan Singer, who first gave these characters screen life fourteen years ago, has crafted a continuity-lover's nightmare.

    I couldn’t follow many of the ins and outs of the time-travel scenario, and I’m not altogether sure that the filmmakers could, either. It doesn’t really matter. It’s enough that the movie is fun. We shouldn’t also expect it to make sense.

    For better or worse, X-Men: Days Of Future Past is the first Marvel movie to truly embrace comics-style storytelling.

    “Days” is fast, smart, well-acted, and intermittently inspired, and if you don’t know or care who Beast or Blink or Storm are, you can safely skip it.

    As usual, the characters — and the performers playing them — step unto the breach to provide just enough wit and feeling to make Days of Future Past something other than a waste of a reasonable person’s time.

    The film squanders both of its casts, reeling from one fumbled set-piece to the next. It seems to have been constructed in a stupor, and you watch in a daze of future past.

    I saw clawns of bones, Blink and Bishop too. I see them figh together, for me and you. And I think to myself, what a wonderful X-world
    I see Quicksilver on blue,
    And eyes on white.
    The bold blessed man,
    The dark phoenix alive.
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful X world.
    The anger of Magneto,
    So strong in the sky.
    Are also on Raven,
    Of mutants going by,
    I see my childhood coming back.
    Saying, "How are you?"
    I´m really saying,
    Fox, I love you".

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I really like it. I was in my seat and the next thing you know it was over. My thoughts are, does this make all the other movies now obsolete? Does the time traveling that got us to this point now moot? I loved it either way and am glad that Jean and the Professor are back from the dead. Expand

    Bryan Singer sabe como hacer cine de buen entretenimiento, no se necesita de suecuencia de accion desenfrenada para contar una historia maravillosa pero que peca de alguno que otro agujero, las interpetraciones son soberbias, escenas bien rodadas como el escape del pentagono, sin duda mi favorita de la saga de los mutantes.

    BY FAR the worst xmen movie ever made the mistakes both logical and else where just all over the place it was just such a huge bummer and such a terrible movie that i dont even know where to begin to criticize ...
    But above all the sentinels kicking mutant as* 'es like its nothing is what killed it for me i mean come on ... Anyone who has watched the xmen - tas and read the xmen comics would say the same thing about this terrible excuse of an xmen movie my overview opinion is that marvel should stop making movies and ruining childhoods because this thing totally ruined mine ...
