Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

During the film's climax, Magneto Michael Fassbender weaves rebar throughout Wolverine's Hugh Jackman body in order to control and throw him. The image is very reminiscent of the "Fatal Attractions" storyline final battle (X-Men Vol 2 #25, October 1993). In the comic, Magneto levitates Wolverine and rips the adamantium from his bones, nearly killing him. See more »

Goofs

(at around 47 mins) Quicksilver uses a portable music player in 1973, while the Walkman wasn't invented until 1979. He is using a stolen prototype of a device called a "Stereobelt", which was first tested in 1972. The prop used in the film is an accurate replica of the historical device. The headphones he is wearing are of a style (individual earpieces which clip directly to each ear) which was not commercially available in 1973, but could have easily been created by removing the headband from headphones of that era and attaching small pieces of metal or plastic.

Quotes

[first lines]
Professor X: 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?

A Visually Stunning And Exhilarating Flick
5 June 2014 | by CalRhysSee all my reviews

2014 has proved to be a successful year so far for Marvel with 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and the most recent 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'. Bryan Singer returns for the most recent X-Men after being absent for the past four films, and what a return he has made. 'Days of Future Past' is truly an impressive and spectacular instalment in both the 'X- Men' franchise and the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, combining the casts from both the original trilogy and the prequel allowing the audience to view the 'X-Men' in the past, present and future. The action scenes are intense and spectacularly choreographed with some fantastic heroes and foes fighting both against and alongside each other. As a personal opinion, 'Days of Future Past' is the best film to have graced the Marvel film franchise and one of the greatest superhero films of all-time. A visually stunning and exhilarating flick that combines the best elements of the series to create a fantastic and entertaining film.
