X-Men: Days of Future Past by Bryan Singer, 2014 (PG-13)

Sequel of X-Men: First Class
The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class in an epic battle that must change the past - to save our future. The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.

No secret anymore, I love X-Men, not so much the side stories of Wolverine, but definitely have a soft spot for the whole gang. They are usually portrayed in a normal way, we're getting to know them more and more, one by one, and I love to get to know more about their youth, about their future... This one seemed to be compiling all of it. I enjoyed it, but honest, this is not the best X-Men. This one is lets say average. It has a good suspense as the future is pending on the past to be changed, the 70s is definitely a fascinating period in terms of societal changes and political agenda, but somehow it felt too long. Once the movie finished, it is a bit hard to think of anything to take off to make the movie shorter, it's just too dense a story perhaps. Anyway, now that the Future Past is changed, what next? I am looking forward to the new Future. More X-Men hopefully... X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016?
