X-Men: Days of Future Past *****

movie x-men days of future past

X-Men: Days of Future Past is a Marvel Comics super hero movie. The mutant X-Men and their supporters have always been outcasts in society. A hard core faction of traditional humans sees them as a threat to the homo sapiens race. Led by a scientist who has a plan to seek and destroy all mutants, the Earth becomes a war zone. Sentinels are created who can identify and destroy mutants. The Sentinels are able to recreate the mutant’s powers to use against them. The last of the mutants are in hiding and develop a plan to go back in time to prevent the Sentinel Program from being funded on a global scale. Only one mutant’s consciousness is able to survive the time travel. Logan/Wolverine is chosen to go back to the 1970’s and seek out the X-Men in their youth to convince them of future horrors and their need to stop the Sentinel program and the event involving Raven/Mystique that fueled its movement.

I have enjoyed the previous X-Men movies and was easily able to follow the story lines and characteristics of the featured mutants. Someone new to the X-Men genre could still follow the story line and enjoy the movie. I liked the way the X-Men were able to go back in time, consciously, and use their future knowledge to prove that they were, in deed, from the future. I liked the younger versions of Professor Xavier and Magneto and their personal relationships and conflicts. The Peter/Quicksilver escape scene was my favorite part of the movie. This is a great movie to kick-start Summer. I loved it. 5 out of 5 stars. There is a bonus scene at the end of the final credits. It is a preview of a new character in the X-Men series.
