X-Men: Days of Future Past Movie Review

I grew up watching the X-Men animated series on ABS-CBN. My favorite character should I say is Jean Grey. I’ve been rooting for her love team with Wolverine, not until Cyclops came along.

I’ve always been fascinated with how powerful Magneto is with controlling metals. I don’t hate him that much because I think he is such a nice and crucial character to the X-Men story. How about you, who is your favorite X-Men character?

Sir Ian McKellen is a legend! He plays the role of Erik Lehnsherr or “Magneto.”

X-Men is a part of my childhood. Through its animated series, I first learned about the word, “mutant.” When I was doing my Must-See Movies of 2014 post and learned about an upcoming X-Men Movie, I knew I shouldn’t miss it.

I know there are a lot of you who haven’t watched this movie yet so I won’t go and spoil it. I just want to share that this is the best X-Men flick that I’ve seen so far. In fact, for me, 3 tubs of popcorn better than The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The casting is really great most especially, (I’d like to commend) Jennifer Lawrence for a very excellent portrayal of Raven Mystique.

I will really have to give it to Jennifer Lawrence. Bravo! 🙂

Aside from Mystique’s amazing capabilities to transform in a blink of an eye, I also find Blink’s (played by Bingbing Fan) power to teleport really fascinating.

One of the scenes that I enjoyed is Peter Maximoff’s, aka Quicksilver, slo-mo at the Pentagon. I bet you will really find this cool!

Parent’s Guide for X-Men: Days of Future Past

Well, I just have to advice you musers, if you are taking your kids with you when watching X-Men: Days of Future Past, it is suitable for older children, ages 13 and up for hints of sex, nudity, alcohol, smoking, violence, and gore. Some scenes include corpses, photos of tortured mutants, decapitation, which I believe will really require adult supervision.

Appearing X-Men characters also include Storm (played by Halle Berry), Cyclops (James Marsden), Jean Grey, Beast, Roque, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, Bishop, and Colossus, so don’t miss them out. 🙂

X-Men: Days of Future Past boggled and blew my mind away. Is your peso worth spending watching it? Without batting an eyelash, it’s a yes for me. I’d give an 8.5 out of 10 rating.

Go ahead and hit the cinema this weekend and see X-Men: Days of Future Past.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opened on Philippine cinemas last May 21, 2014 from 20th Century Fox.

    This is the best X-Men movie…and yeah, waaaaay better than Amazing Spidey 2. I still think that Capt America 2 is still the best comic book move this year though, but only by a small margin.

    I am a super fan of x-men and I love Wolverine…I’m so excited to watch the movie on hubby’s off. Can’t wait to see more actions & more new characters…

    I’m an X-men “movie” fan, I don’t know much about the comics, my hubby does. He’s the one explaining everything to me.

    I love the power of Rogue though I thought Mystique’s power is interesting too. I just find it weird that Jennifer Lawrence would be the young version of Rebecca Romagne Stamos. I don’t see the resemblance. I like J.Lawrence though, just not for that role. I haven’t seen the new movie though, so we’ll see. I can still change my mind. 🙂
