X-Men Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Besides having a long title that almost made me laugh, I actually really liked this film. I haven’t seen all of the X-Men movies, but I have seen quite a few of them and this one is one of the best.

The story is set up with Wolverine traveling to the past and getting a chance to change the future. I really like going back to the time period of the 1970s and getting to see this new set of actors portraying the classic characters. They do a really good job with it and I especially liked the introduction of Quicksilver into the mix.

The story was a compelling one and I loved seeing how people were given second chances even after they’d made mistakes. Raven, Magneto, and even Professor X are all given a chance to change. It was a story of grace overcoming. And even though it’s a bit of a spoiler, I loved that in the end Professor X lets Raven choose what she will do. He didn’t try to control her any longer, but trusted her. And because he showed that faith in her, it resulted in the salvation of all the characters.

I also thought it was hilarious that when the film ends, the only person who remembers any of this is Wolverine.

So, anyway, that’s my last review for awhile, or at least till I have time to see another movie. Hope you enjoyed them.
