The seventh ‘X-Men’ film hits theaters May 23, and trust me — whether you’re a diehard fan of Wolverine, Mystique and Charles Xavier, or you’re new to the game — you won’t want to miss this movie.

X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) heads back in time to prevent Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) from committing a life-threatening murder — because in the present day, that murder is threatening the life of all other X-Men. This movie has the full package: romance, action, and a ton of fun (and hot) scenes!

‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Review

I would much rather watch The Notebook than watch Die Hard, so I’ve got to say, time traveling action is not really my thing. However, I can honestly say that my Nicholas Sparks adaptation films are taking a backseat to the newest X-Men film — and I actually liked the time travel!

In the film, Wolverine/Logan head back in time and re-meet (as we did in First Class) the young Xavier (James McAvoy) and the young Magneto (Michael Fassbender), as well meet the amazing Quicksilver (Evan Peters).

The time travel isn’t cheesy and isn’t easy — when it’s easy in films, it comes off cheesy! So, we see Logan really suffering throughout going back and forth from present to past. I love that Logan’s sense of humor was still in tact when he was younger. Plus, speaking of humor, the meeting of Quicksilver was one of the best parts of the entire film.

My One Complaint

That’s my only complaint — I want more Quicksilver! I won’t give it away, but there’s one scene in a prison that will definitely keep you talking for quite some time. Of course, I also would have loved to see more of Charles Xavier and Magneto as adults — Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan are always great on film together.

So, why did this film stand out to me? Well, more than anything the cast was insanely talented, and director Bryan Singer knew the right and wrong way to go about time travel, murder, and the fine line of bringing back old characters. Throw in Ellen PageShawn Ashmore and not enough Halle Berry, and it’s no surprise the film is a serious hit.

I don’t want to give it away, but X-Men: Days of Future Past will keep you on the edge of your seat, and make you laugh, cry, and wondering WTF just happened with the last scene. Go see the film in theaters May 23!

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My neighbour’s sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out.
