X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014, New Movie Review

X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014 movie posterIn the last year, I’ve made ​​a habit for myself that when I watch a movie I’m already thinking about what to write after is finished. In X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014 I didn’t had time to do it because I was too focused on the movie that I couldn’t think of anything else – something that few movies succeed to do it. Many people say this is the best movie from X-Men series, and I have no reason to argue this (not that I want to).


Even if Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is the one that had recieved the most attention in the past from all mutants (I also refer to the movies made only with him) and now he is the one who was sent back in time, being practically the main protagonist again, I liked very much Magneto! Not just because he is, perhaps, the most powerful of them all, and has about the most cool skill, but I liked how he was played by Michael Fassbender and the lines that he had, one of them highlighting some primitive feelings that still grinds in humanity, no matter how civilized it claims to be.


Of course James McAvoy, who played the young Professor X, can not be overlooked and his great performance raised the quality of this movie. Not for nothing he’s one of my favorite actors. 😀 Overall, X-Men: Days of Future Past is a movie that’s definitely worth watching, and if you can do it at the cinema, in 3D, is even better. It has almost everything you could want from a movie; intense action, great special effects, mysteries to unravel and a sufficient amount of fine humor to relax the atmosphere. The good notes on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes are not coincidental.


Synopsis X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014: An event occurred in 1973, which involves Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), convince the mankind that needs to create robots, named as „Sentinels”, to identify and neutralize mutants. The Sentinels have the ability to adjust their powers and adapt to each mutant in part to be able to annihilate it. Sentinels get out of control and begin to oppress not only mutants but also humans who might in the future give birth to mutants, leading the planet to collapse.


A group of mutants escape the Sentinels and because they can’t fight with them, devise a plan to prevent their creation. With Kitty Pryde’s (Ellen Page) skills, Wolverine is sent back in time to prevent Mystique to make that gesture which will lead to the appearence of the Sentinels. To do this, Logan will have to find the younger version of Professor Charles Xavier, to convince him of the bleak future that awaits them and also to convince him to work with one of its greatest enemies: Magneto, a mutant who is on a dark path.


P. S. If you’ll watch this movie at the cinema, don’t leave the room as soon as the final credits start, because there are some post credit scenes with clues to the next movie from the series: X-Men: Apocalypse!
