Default Official Rate and Review DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

All right, the time is almost here, and since a few of us have already seen the movie...add your review to this thread.

BEWARE SPOILERS!!! Please use common courtesy and use spoiler tags for at least the next two weeks or so until everyone gets a chance to see it. And if you haven't seen it yet...be mindful that there will likely be spoilers in the discussion.

Have fun!

Alright guys, here's my review.
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
With all the hype surrounding this summers blockbuster sequels it goes without saying that a lot of hopes and dreams were riding high on the shoulders of everyone involved in Fox's 7th big screen outing for the X-Men. Bryan Singer himself must've been sweating adamantium bullets, not only being held under the gun by the studio to lead their next big moneymaker, but most importantly and fortunately for us because of his deep and honest desire to make the most accurate and cohesive comic book-to-film adaptation in the history of cinema. So the real question here is: Did Singer finally step up and gave us the X-Men film fans have always wanted? Let's find out.

The film is based on Chris Claremont and John Byrne's 1981 Uncanny X-Men storyline, Days of Future Past. Which sees the mutants taking on a desperate mission into the past, to save the world from a bleak and genocidal future. Simon Kinberg penned the script, based on a story by Kinberg with Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman. The film opens in New York as Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) narrates about the the bleak world they now live in. The sentinels have been hunting down sentinels and putting some of the surving humans and mutants in concetration camps. What could have been simply played as an all out action film instead retains laudable cultural context, as returning director Singer tackles his source material with a slightly more fun, enjoyable tone without losing an ounce of the serious realism or societal commentary which permeated his first effort. As prejudice towards mutants becomes more pronounced and the rift between them and "normal" humans grows ever larger, morally ambiguous fields emerge and extremes are taken by both sides of the issue to eliminate the other, giving the film ample opportunity to touch upon issues of discrimination.

The direction, cinematography, choreography of action sequences and the overall style of the film are exquisite. Blink's (Fan Bing Bing) teleportation stunts and Sunsopt's(Adam Canto) fire domination left me breathless. The fight sequences and special effects are a sight to behold, without the overdose of CGI that many new films drown in, showing yet again that a good director and creative vision are essential to the action/adventure and sci-fi genres. The cinematography is rich and colorful, painting a warm picture of safety with interior and exterior shots of Xavier's School for the Gifted and, at the same time, hinting at an ominous mystery with the cold shots of the Temple the mutants are hiding in the future. The film was basically story integrated with a lot of action. The action sent my already quivering spine shaking all over again. The future sentinels were brutal, mostly emotionless terminators whose one goal was the extinction of mutants. Quicksilver's breakout scene was the highlight of this film that was met with cheers and applause from the audience. The attack on the temple is perfectly suspenseful and is one of the best action pieces of this year, it's also great to see the likes of Colossus brawl one on one with sentinels. He was a lot better untilzed this time around. The climax was also much better than the other X-Men films and the film continuously builds and delivers with some stunning set pieces. The music is fantastic, John Ottman delivers a driving score that works well at moving between being both delicate and heroic.

The emotional depth of the piece is exceptional, particularly today, when frequent gratuitous violence in action and sci-fi movies often detracts from any involvement that the audience might have with the characters. The X-Men films draw on universal themes of individualism and isolation, themes that the this this film emphasizes than the previous ones. The X-Men must join forces against the sentinels created by Boilivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). From internal conflicts to romantic relationships, the world of mutants is parallel to our own world, making the film relatable on many levels. The seriousness is still here which means there's more great drama. The whole idea of being an outcast and isolated are played throughout in a nicely understated fashion. The film's script tries balances its wide array of characters just so unlike the slightly rushed and chaotic feel of the third instalment, as each character shines given their appropriate moment without the film ever feeling cluttered or imbalanced. Similarly, many knowing winks of humour result from throwaway references for fans of the comics without ever jeopardising the credibility of the film. The film similarly boasts more streamlined action setpieces than its predecessor , as the CGI is seamlessly melded with practical effects and makeup, culminating in a laudably realistic depiction of superpowered beings in a frighteningly real world.

But what really bothers me Bryan Singer's seemingly boundless ability to misinterpret the true spirit of the X-Men comics. He still misunderstands some of these characters. But unlike other directors from the past who have butchered comic book adaptations, Singer's interpretation of the characters makes you question the changes that were made especially if you're a hardcore X-Men fan. Because to me, at times it felt that Singer was trying to hard too appease the fanboys and detractors who have not been pleased with how he has handled the X-Men franchise and completely missing the point of what truly makes the X-Men who they are. It seems like he had a checklist, ticking off things that needed to be fixed and things that would make fans happy. Some of the lot of the characters in this film are criminally underused. Brian Singer is still responsible for the terrible characterizations, ****** costumes, misrepresented powers and blatant unneccessary source material deviations. Warpath, Storm,Bishop, Sunspot were all underutilized. Wasted potential there. I mean Havoc and Toad appear in one scene and there are gone. Really?

The quality cast inhabit the potentially daunting material with a passionate urgency, fusing potentially laughable subject matter into an affecting and exhilarating work. The acting is still sublime and of course, have to emphasize Hugh Jackman who is still absolutely brilliant as Wolverine. Both in bringing out the animal sides during the fight sequences but also in keeping the character human like in the comics. The actors are fantastic. Fassbender and McAvoy still delivering amazing performances meanwhile Stewart and McKellen give their reflections in the same excellent way that in the trilogy . Jennifer lawlence's Mystique is now much more in line with Rebecca Romijn's Mystique from the original trilogy. Nicholas Hoult did a great job (despite the obvious CGI during his transformation scenes). Other castmembers like Fan Bing Bing, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page, Adam Canto and Booboo Stewart all did their best despite being barely given any enough screentime.

Besides the lack of character development of some characters, I found the pace was a bit off at times (this is very very minor), undersused characters and some things that could have been explained a bit better, overall it's a brilliant superhero film. Once I sat down in the cinema time just slipped through my hands like sand, I didn't even notice it go past. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is the pinnicle of these movies and is the best film in the franchise. The film was a truly an ambitous and entertaining film and I'd recommend it to anyone. It's an improvement upon the last film and I'm very much looking forward to the next installment in the X-Men franchise. I think the director (Bryan Singer) and the cast all deserve a round of applause. The 3D didn't do anything for me, so I recommend watching it in 2D. Hoever, Singer has yet to deliever the definitive 'X-Men' film.This is how close as we're gonna get to an 'X-Men' film as long as Singer is still around. So at this point take it or leave it. This film is darker, not everyone makes it out alive. It sets up one of the best story lines the comics have ever introduced, Age of Apocalyse. Stick around for the mid credits scene!

With exquisitely thrilling action to put most summer blockbusters to shame and an undercurrent of thought provoking profundity which could give most dramas a run for their money, X-Men: Days Of Futire Past proves an almost faultless piece of quality film-making as well as easily one of the strongest comic book adaptations ever released. Even those usually put off by Singer's take on the X-Men will have much to appreciate and will be hard pressed to find a film nearly as bombastically satisfying as this film.


If there's any grammar and spelling errors, forgive me, english is not my first language.

I feel like I need to see it again before I can review it.

But I will say it felt like a sequel to First Class combined with a proper sequel to X2. And it's all good.

Hrmm, seems pretty close to my ranking if you change some things:

The Wolverine 8.5/10
FC 8/10
X2 7.5/10
X-Men 7.5/10
X3 6/10
Origins 5/10

I wont be surprised if DOFP becomes number one next week.

I haven't seen the film yet, but Jean Grey and Scott's deaths in X3 is actually faithful to the DOFP comic.

In the comic run, DOFP is essentially a sequel or epilogue to the Dark Phoenix Saga and in the first issue of DOFP called "Elegy" (#138), it begins with Jean Grey's funeral and ends with Scott Summers leaving the X-Men for a while.

So it is sort of faithful in that sense with X3 and their deaths. I'm glad they will be in Apocalypse though, but younger obviously.

Default Re: Official Rate and Review DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Even I am an uber-fanatic of X-Men and everything of its franchise, rest assured I will be unbiased and will not give any spoilers (I hope).

So let me begin by saying that this is not a Michael Bay-Roland Emmerich type of apocalyptic film (and please don't mention the name of Brett Ratner). This is a Bryan Singer end-of-the-world style which means a balance of drama and action sequence in both timelines. Heavy on dialogues and a little bit of humor, here and there.

In my opinion, it's so wrong to expect that the story will be the same as the comics. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN! Hence, the term adaptation - we give freedom to the writers and directors to envision a new world of possibilities.

The greatest thing about the film was the subtlety of rebooting all X-Men franchise (that includes Wolverine movies) by explaining the relationships of all 6 X-films and patching the flaws (some/most) depending on your viewpoint. Second greatest thing was the nostalgia which brought closure to the original trilogy.

Of course, no qualms about the acting capability of the cast members but I have to say this, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy interactions were the best.

There were violent reactions on Quicksilver, but I tell you this - that's one of the movie highlights.

I loved the "American Hustle" vibe, well because it's the 70s.

What's lacking for me is the screen time given to the future, my only complain.

Regardless of the changes - one thing remained constant, the idea of "people with gifts who has sworn to protect a world that hates and fears them".

We all know the next sequel will be "Apocalypse" so stay tuned until the last of end credits. I really wish Singer will direct this next episode.

@Teekay, as a film maker Singer's primary objective is to tell a story in that medium. I disagree that he is unable to interpret the "true spirit" of the X-Men just because all 22 characters don't have equal amounts of screen time and development -and wear technicolor outfits. This isn't Game of Thrones where you have the luxury of time. This series has successfully captured the true spirit of a marginalized group fighting for survival and acceptance.

I've rated it. I'd have to see the film again to be able to review it. From where I was sitting it was tough to focus on the entire screen with how close I was sitting. Though saying that, I left the theatre with the urge to see it straight away...Which was polar opposite to how I felt after watching Godzilla.

It's powerful, ambitious and witty in all the right places.

For anyone who's seen it, how was Colossus portrayed and he did he final have "colossal" feats?

Also...Iceman, Bishop, Warpath, and Sunspot?

Wow, our first page of reviews and I already had to delete half the posts.

Discuss what's being said here, not snipe at each other what's being said at CBM, where I think the only requirement they have of their writing staff is, "Does your computer turn on?"

So play nice, folks. The movie is out in less than a week, it's not a good time for a probation.

Well, no, it's do you have a Shaw or Telus internet connection.

And I agree with you very much man, this was a damn well written entertaining story. Don't mind that little rant I made about Singer, for me it was just the frustration of how he handled some of my favourite characters. It wasn't just about not waring techniclolor outfits and limited screentime that bugged me but I won't go into detail here. I'll give credit where's it's due, having re-watched X-2 again, DOFP is the best in the franchise.
