X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the better films in the X-Men series. It was clear, clean, crisp, entertaining and good story telling. Wolverine/ Logan, played by Hugh Jackman, is sent back in time, to 1973, in hopes of stopping an event that would eliminate a fatal future for the Mutants and Humans as well. As usual, the special effects are impeccable and the stellar cast, totally enjoyable. I was happy to see former X-men like Ororo Munroe/Storm (Halle Berry) and Jean Grey/Phoenix (Famke Janssen ) back in this sequel. Jennifer Lawrence has played the role of Raven/Mystique in the last 2 films and is eye candy whether she’s in human or mutant form. The truly great surprise is Dr. Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones. I can’t say enough about Peter’s on screen presence and acting ability. He is magic in any role he plays. The question is can Charles Xavier/Professor X, played by both Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy and Eric Lehnsherr/ Magneto, played by both Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender, really come together for a good cause? Spend the time and money to see X-Men and find out. This movie was rated high by the viewers who didn’t make a mistake — it’s really a good one.
