X-Men: Days of Future Past Movie Review

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

Bryan Singer, returning to the Marvel mutant franchise that he kick-started, skillfully meshes its two disparate story strands, crafting an ambitious time-spanning tale that brings together key players from the original X-Men trilogy and their younger counterparts from First Class. In the end, Singer succeeds in infusing a kind of popcorn blockbuster quality to a drama rich in emotion. Blessed with a solid cast, he gives us characters we actually care for. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for X-Men: Days of Future Past.

It is also a film that tries on a unique, ambitious approach: it crams so, so much plot into its two-hour running time that there isn’t room to get bored — or room even for the obligatory Stan Lee cameo. What Bryan Singer has wisely created here is a massively eventful film, a film where every fifth minute brings a fresh plotpoint, introduces an important character, makes a self-referential dig… There are inconsistencies, sure, but the film kicks off in the middle of the action and the narrative never lets up — it’s one big colourful highlight reel.

Bryan Singer, who launched the X-Men franchise 14 years ago, returns with a bang – X-Men: Days of Future Past is ambitious, big screen entertainment with wit, depth and verve. Thankfully Singer keeps the mayhem and climactic digital destruction in check and inserts enough emotional resonance to keep us invested. Does it all make sense? I’m not entirely sure but I’m happy to sacrifice narrative coherence for pure adrenalin. Besides, it’s such a pleasure to see so many terrific actors working off each other. I’m going with three and a half stars.

For a complex plot with so many characters, the movie is surprisingly easy to follow because of the cogent and clever distinctions made between front-line and secondary plots and characters. And though there’s no shortage of fantastic special effects, the film isn’t in the least bit overbearing. While it assumes viewer familiarity with all the characters, *Days of Future Past* does manage the improbable task of combining almost everything that we love about the X-Men series, in one place.

All in all, the film is a great step in the right direction. If the teaser shown in the end credits is any indication, the franchise is far from over but with this film as a base, there’s hope for the X-Men yet. The bold move of combining the cast of the original film series with that of First Class seems to have paid of well, making this easily the best X-Men film to date, even better than X-2: X-Men United

Ah, finally. A great X Men movie. It took them long enough. First Class was fun, but it wasn’t great. Days of the Future Past is great. I think it’s the best X Men movie I’ve seen. It brings back the nostalgia of X1 and the magic of X2, and makes you forget about every other movie made in the canon. I could have awarded this movie four stars, I really wanted to. But I have to subtract half a star for one big reason. The 3D. It’s awful.

Catch this one because you have waited for some good ol’ fan-fic that does not try too hard to elucidate on the ‘good over evil’ aspect. A neat take on the rising divides between the mutants and the people and the institution of the State biting into the decision – making. This is an applicable storyline that definitely travels beyond fiction. So the kid can watch this for the respect to fandom paying some homage to Storm who is highly under – portrayed in this one, or simply to be introduced to the franchise. The adult can take this as an apt swing from the news channels and news papers that talk of similar war – making day in and day out. ​

Overall, it must be said that, despite these what-could-have-been niggles, X-Men: Days Of Future Past is a perfectly competent comic book movie that delivers the goods and admirably so. From its uniformly excellent cast (McAvoy is especially good) to John Ottman’s brass-laden score, this is your favourite restaurant serving up your favourite meal on an attractive platter. Don’t expect the world from the condiments and sauces and you’ll do just fine.

While it’s more dramatically diffuse than the reboot and lacks a definitive villain, the new film is shot through with a stirring reverence for the Marvel Comics characters and their universe. And it ups the stakes by threatening nothing less than the genocide of the mutant population, among them faces old and new. It’s hard to imagine fanboys having too much to grumble about here, as Singer has pulled together an ambitious, suspenseful screen chapter that secures a future for the franchise while facilitating continued reinvention. Audiences should sit tight through the end credits crawl for an enigmatic signoff scene that provides a taste of the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse.

  1. DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is the best x men movie, or say at par with X:2 & First class.
    Thanks to Bryan Singer, who again does a brilliant job in stuffing the entire x men universe.
    There are a few minor flaws and as expected some under utilised characters.
    Especially Halle Berry's STORM.
    But it didn't bothered much since there is truckload of masterclass actors and actresses.
    Peter Dinklage having blast, Sir Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart sharing screen together again, James McCoy & Michael Fassbander's rocksolid chemistry, Superb Jennifer Lawrence in dynamic action, SCENE STEALING EVAN PETER's Quicksilver (I wished for more of him), and Hugh Jackman's cut short action but acting avatar which was great and suitable.
    There are more actors who does a fab.job but the mentioned guys were the most enjoyable of the entire lot.
    This is the darkest x men movie, even more than the last year's WOLVERINE and it has a solid emotional core attached to it.
    The time travel plot and the differences between the mutants is executed flawlessly.
    Visual effects are top-notch but 3D doesn't adds much depth.
    Background score is fine.
    On the whole, FUTURE PAST is Great, memorable and a lot enjoyable!
    Must – watch.

    Note:- "Their is one after credits scene".

  2. Acting was good. Effects were great. Fassbender and JLaw were money. Great installment, probably one of the best superhero movies I've seen. Must Watch..!!


  3. Gaurav rai kaha ho?

  4. #X_Men_Days_Of_Future_Past : A rough and hardcore action flick which will definitely be loved by a large section of audience. Acting, stunts and the use of powers is top notch. Movie lacks only because of 3-D effects and weak script. All in all, its a complete action entertainer that will not leave the fans of this series disappointed and will definitely add up new fans.

    Final verdict : 4*/5.

  5. Gr8 movie..must watch for d action..story lacks strength.

  6. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST: Entertainment just can’t get any bigger, any better! [4/5]

    The most loved mutant series X-MEN returns to its original generator after 11 long years and the influence, empathy and compassion between the two grow like they were never separated. No wonder, Bryan Singer helmed X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST turns out to be the most entertaining affair of the lot. It is also an adrenaline-charged reunion of the older and newer members of the mutant gang known for their magical, mystical & marvellous powers. Together they ensure a wholesome entertainer you’ll cherish long after leaving the theatre. Action speaks louder than words but action here in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is more amusing, enjoyable and flattering but without eclipsing the power of words.

    In the futuristic world of endless possibilities, heroic mutants headed by the older professor X [Patrick Stewart] and Magneto [Ian McKellan] are being hunt and gunned down by army of Robotic Giants called The Sentinels supposedly developed by the gene and blood-cells of Raven-the Mystique, played by the enigmatic Jennifer Lawrence. The threat upon the very existence of mankind and mutants are constantly getting thicken and the only way out is to rectify the mistakes done in the past by taking the much fascinating time-travel route. The volunteer chosen is the edgy & impatient Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman. Now, he has to deal with the younger versions of his associates who are still ambitiously driven by their own set of differences and unaware of the fact that eventually they had to be one at one point of time.

    This journey from future to past sees ample of electrifying moments to keep you constantly on the edge of your seats. The engaging plot and unpredictability in the writing make sure you never have a dull moment even for once. Rather, the story moves forward and gets unfold in a manner that the 2 hour duration of the film looks absolutely jam-packed with much of thrills and chills. Of the lot, the best is when Peter aka Quicksilver [Played by Evan Peters] decides to help Charles Xavier [James McAvoy] and Wolverine release Erik [Michael Fassbender] in a prison-break in an almost impossible Pentagon. In a lyrical representation of how the ‘blink and you miss’ fastest of the all Quicksilver reacts in fractions of a second to this particular sequence, you are bound to be left awe-struck and overwhelmingly impressed by the ultra-slow-motion technique and the fascinating music score over it to double it up the whole experience. In another, you see Erik using his epic superpowers to thrash and lift up an entire sports stadium in the air and later, to make it a guarding wall around Washington DC. This is as big as Chris Nolan creates in his super science fictions. Absolutely breath-taking!

    If anything that does get unsatisfying to some extent, is when you see many of your favourite characters like Storm played by Halle Berry getting side-lined with a not-so-evolved brief role but then possibly this is not the film for them to be remembered for. They had their own share in the previous and hopefully will get another in next. With the layered emotionally dehydrated and hilarious drunken act of James McAvoy as younger professor X, the witty reactions and one-liners of Wolverine, the action sequences involving the tiff between Erik and Raven, you shouldn’t really ask for more reasons. It tastes as good as it smells. Entertainment just can’t get any bigger, any better! [4/5]

  7. Worst x men movie …..
