X-Men: Days of Future Past is stark brilliant!
Boo you Ratner! We don’t want you messing with it again! So I knew the flick was going to make me jump on my seat since Time Travel was entailed and boy it did!
To begin with we have the punishing and ravaging Sentinels, there designs hi-tech and adaptive unlike the sloth ones from the animated series! And boy can they fight? We see Blink and her portals equally ravishing, those fight seqs are pretty dope! We don’t see much of Warpath yet he has been subtly put just like Sunspot and Bishop. Was having a gala time spotting my favorite mutants like Toad, Havok a.k.a Alex \m/ and watching the fastest Marvel character and Magneto’s yet to be officially proclaimed son, Quick Silver fool around in bullet time!
Stryker resurrects himself with his dots to connect, whilst Wolverine is charming as ever! But who really picked it up? Well it’s Lawrence and friend-cum-foe duo Fassbender and McAvoy! Acting knows no bound when Fassbender’s around. He paints a movie with his style and sheer pizazz! Dinklage does justice to Trask and breathes the character alive with his conviction! One of the most beautiful parts of the movie when Charles talks to himself through time and convinces himself of himself, the end and the eventuality, making him rebound with hope.
The contrasting glimpse of future and past was a delight to watch and Singer sings like a nightingale wrapping up an epic Marvel universe drama with action, brilliant story-line, portals, mutant-thirsty charismatic Sentinels, series of heart-wrecking deaths, flying Magneto, manipulative X, and of course time travel! Nothing gave me more pleasure than watching Scott come breathing alive on the screen.
All those final moments my crossed fingers talked “Please Scott be alive…Please Scott be alive!” Now I can die in peace 🙂
