The latest X-men series movie titled Days of Future Past and directed by Bryan Singer is action packed and has not gone overboard on the special effect factor but the story is bit of a complex one to follow. Also with quite a number of characters appearing every now and then it is a bit difficult to follow the happenings on screen. I have been hearing from some sources that this is the best film among the X-men series which I cannot fully endorse as for me the best one till date is X-Men First class followed by X2.
In Days of future past, the present Mutants join together to go to the past and change an event that have an impact on their present existence. So we have Wolverine at the request of Professor X travel to the early part of 1970's to meet Charles and Erik. Helped by Kitty Pryde, Wolverine is transferred into that year for completing the mission.
Mystique is included in the plot as she is out there to eliminate Dr.Boliver Trask who wants to eliminate and completely destroy the mutants and wipe them out.
Bryan Singer the director has ensured that the movie is a good one watchable for all including the fans of the series. And Days of Future past is a worthy successor to all the prequels despite the complexity in the storyline.
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine with his screen presence takes the film forward while the lady character Mystique adds the entertainment value in terms of action and pace. Michael Fassbender as Teutonic was also impressive among the casts. Patrick Stewart, Ian Mckellen and James McAvoy also formed part of the supporting casts.
Overall, the present sequel won't disappoint you and is definitely a notable successor to the X-men series. My rating is 3.5 / 5.
P.S - Don't leave the cinema hall once the end title credits start rolling down. Wait for it to finish and there is something to watch out for once the title credits are shown.
