In a possible not so distant future, the war between humans and mutants has escalated to a catastrophic level at the hands of Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage). Now, in a last ditch effort to save earth one X-man will need to travel back in time to 1973, reset time, and right so many wrongs. But to reset time Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) will need to re-unite two young and estranged friends with wildly differing philosophies, Magneto (Michael Fassbender/Ian McKellen) and Profesor X (James McAvoy/Patrick Stewart). Even then, perhaps the die is cast and the hand of fate is set, can annihilation actually be prevented?xmen Directed by Bryan Singer, Days of Future Past appears to be the righting of many wrongs in both the X-Men universe as well as previous directorial choices in the real world. Plus, clever crafting of a story worthy of X-Men lore by screenwriters Simon Kinberg, Jane Goldman, and Matthew Vaughn goes above the expected and delivers the goods with plenty of action, humor, and believe it or not good ‘ol romance. Solid acting throughout makes for an easy watch, there isn’t a bad egg in the bunch. And, with the exception of some cheese whiz special effects set in the future, from a technical standpoint, there’s little to gripe about. Continuing on 2014’s banner year for superheroes this one tastes like another victory! X-Men: Days of Future Past is rated PG-13.
