Description

Bryan Singer directs this blockbuster superhero sequel based on the characters from the Marvel comic strip.

With a storyline that alternates between the past and present, the film acts as a direct sequel to three separate films, 'X-Men: The Last Stand' (2006), 'X-Men: First Class' (2011) and 'The Wolverine' (2013).

When the survivors of the battle in 'X-Men: The Last Stand', led by Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Storm (Halle Berry), discover that total annihilation now awaits humans and mutants alike, they send the ageless Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in time to try and change the course of events.

In the past, Wolverine must team up with the younger incarnations of the X-Men seen in 'X-Men: First Class', Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), to avert disaster. Will he succeed?

Synopsis
In order to prevent a grim future in which mutants and their human sympathizers are systematically hunted and killed by towering, unstoppable robots called Sentinels, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) travels back in time to change the course of history in this sequel that finds X-MEN and X2: X-MEN UNITED director Bryan Singer returning to the helm.
The film opens in a dark and desolate future that was set in motion in 1973, when brilliant scientist Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) created a series of giant robots called Sentinels for the sole purpose of wiping out mutants, whom he claimed were a direct threat to the human race. Although initially programmed solely to target mutants, the Sentinels soon began eradicating humans who possessed the DNA to breed mutants, and eventually, any mortal mutant sympathizers. Desperate, Prof. Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) devise a plan to have Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) send Wolverine back to the year when Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) assassinated Trask -- it turns out that Mystique inadvertently accelerated the Sentinel program when she was subsequently captured by Sgt. William Stryker (Josh Helman), who succeeded at harvesting her DNA to make the robots more powerful than ever before.
Upon arriving in the past, Wolverine quickly seeks out a much younger Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), as well as Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Quicksilver (Evan Peters), and together they help break a young Magneto (Michael Fassbender) out of a heavily fortified prison cell hundreds of feet beneath the Pentagon. Meanwhile, with the help of Havok, Ink, Toad, and Spike, Mystique is already moving in for the kill. Although Wolverine, Beast, Charles, and Magneto manage to thwart the assassination, Charles and Magneto once again find themselves at odds after the latter attempts to alter the plan at the last moment, creating a mass panic during a post-Vietnam War peace summit in Paris. And Dr. Trask, still fuming from having had the Sentinel program rejected by Congress, takes his proposal directly to President Nixon (Mark Camacho), laying the groundwork for an even darker future than the one Wolverine was sent back to prevent.

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (22 May 2014, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[An] occasionally profound and consistently exciting sci-fi thriller."
Richard Roeper (21 May 2014, )
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat we do get here is largely fantastic, not only re-energising old-favourite characters but introducing intriguing new ones."
Nick De Semlyen (16 May 2014, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Simon Kinberg's marvelous script makes it all move with a Swiss jeweler's precision and hum with internal logic. It's complex without being confusing." -- Grade: B+
Chris Nashawaty (29 May 2014, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Visual effects and CGI work, unsurprisingly, are top-notch throughout, and the Sentinels' attacks are rendered with a chilling visceral charge."
David Rooney (12 May 2014, )
New York Times
"The actors tackle the roles without winking or condescension, and it is nice to see them together again..."
A. O. Scott (23 May 2014, )
RogerEbert.com

Simon Abrams (22 May 2014, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[F]ans are in for an exhilarating rush."
Peter Travers (22 May 2014, )

Kevin Harley (13 May 2014, )
Variety
"Bryan Singer returns to blockbuster form with this strikingly ambitious continuation of the X-MEN saga."
Justin Chang (12 May 2014, )
Wall Street Journal
"Huge franchise installments are rarely as enjoyable as this one. They aren't as inventive, richly detailed, surprisingly varied, elegantly crafted or improbably stirring."
(22 May 2014, )
Washington Post
"DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is, in itself, as intoxicating as a shot of adrenaline."
(22 May 2014, )
