I.M.C.F Review
Just as X-Men franchise was losing hope, after a film like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Director Bryan Singer weaves a convoluted story in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is both the strength and weakness of this film.

This film has got a great screenplay which might confuse you, but it gives you a thrill, that will tie you to the story! The story, to be precise is that Sentinels (robotic machines), star killing the Mutants, without having anyone to stop! This leaves Wolverine, no option but to go into the past and untie a few knots between Charles, Eric and Raven; which would change the future, that is, their current present.

So, the movie is like, what difficulties does Wolverine face in 1970's, while altering the past, and how far does he succeed in saving Mutants!

This is a decent X-Men flick with more story than action.
The highlight would be to see, all the dead X-Men characters, back to life.
Also, watch out for 'Quick Silver'. This guy might become your favorite.

Ratings and Reviews from Popular Sites
8.4/10 - IMDb
4.4/5   - Rotten Tomatoes

The results are both dazzling and intimate, clever and - during one tour-de-force sequence - spectacularly funny.
A rollicking good time that's satisfying in its own right and opens up many new sequel possibilities.
If you just think of each franchise X-Men film installment as a stand-alone alternative history, it will go easier for your brain.
