X-Men: Days of Future Past delivers on all levels. First, it has a great story Writer Simon Kinberg developed with Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn. Director Bryan Singer, backed by Cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel, Production Designer John Myhre, Visual Effects Designer Richard Stammers and Editor/Composer John Ottman, has turned their work into the best action film, so far, this year.
In an all-star cast, including Michael Fassbender as the Young Magnito, Ian McKellen as Magnito, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Halle Berry as Storm, Peter Dinklage as the villainous Dr. Trask, Ellen Page as Kitty Pride, Anna Paquin as Rogue, Nicholas Hoult as Beast and Omar Sy as Bishop, the standout performances are Evan Peters as Quicksilver, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, James McAvoy as the Young Professor X and, best of all, Jennifer Lawrence as Raven.
Now, if you’re not a viewer of the previous X-Men films and don’t know who those characters are, you’ll still have a great time seeing this film. If you are a fan, you’ll be ecstatic with this production.
I give X-Men: Days of Future Past a 4+ out of 5.
