Review:

I knew nothing about the Days of Future Past story line from the comics or the TV show so I went in with no expectations. My husband use to watch the TV show so was really hoping for more Bishop. Oh well.

There were a couple new X-Men in the future, and in the case of Bishop there was no explanation of his powers. Quicksilver was probably the best part of the movie. Loved the scene with him in the kitchen, the music reminded me of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

The movie ended up being a reset switch. Everything that has happened in the movies up until now we don’t even know if it happened. Everyone that died is back, the world is all hunky dory.

I call bullshit. There is no way humans would be ok with mutants after one tries to kill the president, brings a whole stadium to the white house, and is only stopped when another mutant stops him. They don’t even get to imprison the mutant that tried to kill the president because another powerful mutant lets him go.

Even with the unlikely ending I liked the movie. Didn’t love it, don’t need to own it, but I liked it.

3/5
