The X-Men are back and looking better than ever, in 3-D and IMAX of
course, and with a mind-stretching yet eternally entertaining tale as
familiar as countless other mankind-saving, chronologically-obsessed
Sentinels, robots that were created for the purpose of hunting down
mutants were released in 1973. 50 years later the Sentinels would also
hunt humans who aid mutants. Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his X-Men try their best
to deal with the Sentinels but they are able to adapt and deal with all
mutant abilities. Charles decides to go back in time and change things.
He asks Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) who can send a person's consciousness into the
person's past to send him but she can only send someone back a few weeks
because if she sends someone back further it could harm them.
Then Logan (Hugh Jackman) decides to go back himself because he might be able to withstand it. Charles tells him that it's Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) who's responsible because when she
learned about the Sentinels she sought out Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) the man who
created them and killed him. She would be caught and studied and her
ability to change was somehow added to the Sentinels which is why they
can adapt. Logan must go to the younger Charles and ask him to help;
problem is that he was despondent at that time and without his powers
because he took a drug which allows him to walk but takes away his
powers. Logan is also told to find Magneto.
You really should try to see X-Men: Days of Future Past on the big screen.
The heart-pumping effects are worth it alone. And the cleverness and wit
are outstanding. Maybe the best is yet to come with “X-Men: Apocalypse”
(due in 2016), but for now, this one, directed by Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") is definitely one of the best.
