‘Days of future past’ joins best of X franchise

Movie Review

(Continued) —

There are moments where one can just as easily cheer like a hilariously epic scene with Quicksilver/Peter Maximoff (Evan Peters) or cringe when it comes to mutants making the ultimate sacrifice to ensure history is re-written. Even knowing that the goal was to try and make the ending as happy as possible, you can’t help other than to be pulled in by the emotional turmoil these mutants feel as they lash out at each other and the world that refuses to accept them.

With the pace set at the perfect high octane and special effects that are at times the best of the series (again the quicksilver scene and the terrifying way the future sentinels kept coming), one really has to focus to nitpick on the few imperfections that do pop up. Add in it yet another amazing soundtrack for 2014 and I not only recommend this as a must see for the year, but one I would see multiple times in the theater if conditions allowed. I would still say “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is still in the running for best hero movie of the year and really isn’t surpassed by this in overall quality, but there’s just something extra that justifies giving “X-men: Days of Future Past” five out of five mutating genes.
