Science Fiction

Release Date:

131 minutes

Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) decide to send Wolverine back in time. And they do have a very good reason for their effort: the future is even more bleak than their worst nightmares. Sentinels created by Trask Industries have killed almost all mutants and then started to exterminate the rest humanity. When Wolverine arrives in the past, he tries to guide young Xavier (James McAvoy) and what is left of the X-Men team, as we saw them in X-Men First Class. But in order to succeed, they must seek the help of Magneto (Michael Fassbender) who is imprisoned in a secret basement under Pentagon. Prison break from such a place? You need someone who can’t be caught… Quicksilver who is faster than you can imagine! They all must combine their mutant powers, and they don’t have any margin for errors, if they want humanity to have a second chance. Will Magneto put aside his ego? Will Xavier succeed in reconciling ordinary humans with mutants?

Our impressions and movie review:
Bryan Singer performed like in a recital. After the mediocre, or maybe total failures, X-Men Last Stand and X-Men First Class, I must admit that I was very sceptical about the new move. Fortunately, the Days of Future Past is almost perfect and has many special effects. The writers did a good job, and we must say that the story is based in a magnificent comic book script by Chris Claremont and John Byrne that was published in 1981 on Marvel Comics’ X-Men. Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique has a leading role. Peter Dinklage, who we first met at Game of Thrones, stands well in the shoes of Dr Bolivar Trask, the evil guy at Days of Future Past, or should I say he steals the show. And I’m telling you one thing: they are planning X-Men Apocalypse for 2015.
