In the future, the mutants and the humans who help them are slaughtered by powerful robots named Sentinels. Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Kitty Pryde and her friends meet at a monastery in China and Xavier explains that the invincible Sentinels were created using the DNA of Mystique that was captured in 1973 when she tried to assassinate their creator Dr. Bolivar Trask. Xavier tells that their only chance is return to 1973 using Pryde's ability to join Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr to convince Mystique to give up her intention. However, only Wolverine can withstand the damages of the time travel. Will he succeed in stopping Mystique and the Sentinel Program, and save the mutants and their human friends from annihilation?Written by

Plot similarities to X2: X-Men United (2003): the previous film begins with an assassination attempt on an unnamed President. The plot in this one revolved around preventing an assassination; first of Bolivar Trask, and subsequently of Richard Nixon. In the earlier film, the would-be assassin was Nightcrawler. In this film, it is Mystique, who, in the comics, is Nightcrawler's mother. Both also involve Xavier and Magneto joining forces to prevent the political fallout from the attempt. See more »
In Quicksilver's first scene, he plays the video game "Pong" on an arcade machine. The game is running incredibly fast for showing how fast Peter can play. "Pong" however does not run that fast, and the fact that Peter can move fast would not make the game run any quicker. See more »
The future: a dark, desolate world. A world of war, suffering, loss on both sides. Mutants, and the humans who dared to help them, fighting an enemy we cannot defeat. Are we destined down this path, destined to destroy ourselves like so many species before us? Or can we evolve fast enough to change ourselves... change our fate? Is the future truly set?

When the 20th Century Fox logo fades away, the X in the logo stays for a second longer before it also fades away. The "X-Men" score can also be heard near the end of the logo. See more »
simply said it was well directed and well acted with good pacing,great cgi effects and epic soundtrack. what more can you expect from a superhero movie? X-Men might be my favorite superhero movie (except wolverine spin off), and DOFP might be the best of them. It's an all star movie with a good director (everything not related to professionalism is irrelevant), in paper it's guaranteed to be at least a decent movie,and boy, they didn't disappoint me at all, really surpassed my expectation.
I am absorbed, nothing else matter except the scenes in front of me.It already had my attention since the overview of the future narrated by professor X. The story has a good pacing,not to slow but not to fast. I didn't notice any plot holes, and there's nothing in the script that annoyed me. Bryan Singer could handle the dramatic and epic scenes very well. the dramatic scenes makes me teared up a little,the epic scenes put me on the edge of my seat. And he sew the humor seamlessly, it was appropriate and subtle,just what I like.
They said that DOFP lack of any definitive villains, but any movie doesn't need definitive villains to be good. X-Men movies is always about fighting the enemy inside every humans and mutants, it's always about self struggle, defeating the darkness inside of you.
4/5 (cause nothing's perfect)
