X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Directed by Bryan Singer 8.5/10 Well after the critically acclaimed rebirth of the X-Men with X-Men:First Class, we now have the opportunity to have the original, current day X-Men and the old school X-Men in one film. The result is an unforgettable epic which may not only be the best X-Men film to dat e but perhaps the best super-hero film to date also. The epic scope of the timelines (one an apocalyptic in nature and the other in the politically charged Nixon era) blend wonderfully with an array of characters , set pieces, emotional points and swift moving plot working together to somewhat of a masterpiece of the genre. The effects and camera work are the best they have been in the series and a big step up from first class. The film also has wonderful humor along with the action and serious parts not to mention wonderful performances from Fassbender, Macavoy and the best use of Wolverine to date.
