Place Raven as the hero was a bad decision. I really miss the old X-men movies.

I have tainted opinion when it comes to action-fantasy. And when the movie is mostly special effects then I don't pay attention too much to storyline, so I cannot speak to that. But if you like action with special effects and CGI, this one is a doozy! A bit unrealistic, but most of these genres are. Still, it's worth the watch for any XMen fans out there.

Wolverine is sent back in time to 1973 in order to stop an event that leads to the mass-extermination of mutants.

Time travel always causes some shaky plot holes and this is no exception, but somehow Singer just about manages to pull it off here. It’s an ambitious piece of work, old and young Xavier and Magneto try to co-exist in the same story but it miraculously doesn’t end in disaster.

In fact Days of Future Past is quite a blast (from the future past). There’s a decent blend of intense action, genuine drama and the old favourite X-Men theme: what is it to be human?

I miss the campy tone from from its predecessor, but actually the more serious feeling doesn’t hurt the film. I have to admit that at this point I keep having to Google who the characters are and what they did; this is a sixteen year-old franchise now and I surely can’t be the only one who’s struggling with the old references.

If super heroes are your thing then there are worse ways to spend a couple of hours. McAvoy and Fassbender alone make it worth a look.
