Excerpt: Once again, the best part of this film and the best thing to happen to the franchise as a whole is the casting of Michael Fassbender as Eric Lehnsherr/Magneto and James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier. Stewart and McKellan, as the older versions of the characters, are also fine but they are not given much screen time in this film and were not given much in terms of good scriptwriting in any of the earlier films.
Excerpt: Los mutantes vuelven a la carga con una película-puente que parece más bien pensada como anticipo y avance de lo que está por venir. Mucho metraje, poca acción y sentido en general, buen diseño de producción. Y a esperar el Apocalipsis.
Excerpt: “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is the trippiest entry in 20th Century Fox’s long-running Marvel Comics franchise, and perhaps the brainiest. Epic in scope from the opening frame, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” insistently refuses to be outdone in size or spectacle by any of the other comic book-based franchises out there, none of which would have seen the light of day without the success of 2000’s “X-Men.”
Excerpt: “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is entertaining and challenging, a full meal of eye-candy and substance, as well as a summer tentpole that invigorates its comic-book property with gravitas and vigor. Your move, “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Excerpt: X-Men: Days of Future Past ups the ante both visually and thematically as it presents the darkest and most socio-politically complex entry in the film franchise. It finally shows us the sheer destruction of the mutant genocide Magneto (Ian McKellan) has been warning about for decades as it also explores the xenophobic cold war paranoia of the 1970s.
Excerpt: Rich in kinetic kitsch and impish imagination, X-Men: Days of Future Past is a blast from the past as its percolating production triggers another inclination to embrace this motley crew of super-powered oddballs.
Excerpt: Days of Future Past rights the bone-headed wrongs of Last Stand: it looks and feels terrific (every bit of that $250 million budget is up on the screen) and I loved seeing these characters treated – once again – with the love that they deserve.
Excerpt: With so many balls in the air, you can imagine that X-Men: Days of Future Past is one busy little bee. Director Bryan Singer returns to this series after directing the first two X-Movies (there have now been seven, count ‘em, seven), and what he brings with him is a bold spirit of fun. What the movie lacks is a tightly-written story.
Excerpt: X-Men: Days of Future Past, warts and all, will surely please fans, despite disappointing them with a storyline that doesn’t quite hold up, as well as managing to brush over burning questions raised in previous installments.
Excerpt: Not only the best film in the ‘X-Men’ series, but one that rivals the best super-hero movies of the past. Inventive and slick in the best sense, it continues the franchise’s rejuvenation and whets the appetite for more.
