Movie: Xmen: Days of Future Past
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy
My Rating: Two thumbs up
I'm a late bloomer regarding the Xmen thing. I think I missed the first several movies but then caught up to them on DVD. But the last few I've been right there when they came out! This one sort of slipped under my radar until my sister came to visit and said, hey, we should see Xmen! I thought, yeah, we should actually!
This one is about how the guys of current Xmen days are facing a huge problem. The bad guys have taken Mystique's DNA and created a weapon out of it. The only way they can think to stop this is to go back in time at the moment when she (Mystique) kills the bad guy and stop her. You'd think killing the bad guy would be good, but no, it sets in motion the events that cause her to be captured whereupon her DNA is stolen!
Well, the only guy that can handle the going back in time procedure is Logan aka. Wolverine. So, he does...and we suddenly find ourselves in the awesome 70s when Charles has lost his power and is a drunken recluse being tending by Beast. It's very sad, but Wolverine convinces him to help and off they go to stop Mystique.
Of course it's not easy and stuff happens and it by the end, all your nails will be bitten off! Yep. Intense! And that dumb old Magneto messes everything up like usual, even though in the future (or the current?) he is trying to help.
So, yes, of course I loved it! The action was AWESOME! And everything else. I love Beast. And I'm intrigued by Warpath. We need more of him, okay? And, ah, they are all so cool. Oh, and a new character... Quicksilver! I think he's new anyway? Yes? No? Anyway... he was the BEST! There is scene... just... yes... so so good!
Here's the trailer for those interested:
