The critical reviews for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the 2014 sequel to X-Men: First Class based on the Marvel Comics story of the same name, have begun to pour in.

‘Best X-Men since the second one’ hits UK cinemas on May 22 and US theaters the following day.

If you don’t really care about reviews for this blockbuster, then just hit the jump and watch new featurette on Magneto. Michael Fassbender stars as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto who will use his magnetic manipulation to fight for the future in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The film takes place in two different eras, and the only issue here is too complicated screenplay. The jarring narrative structure leaps back and forth in time, in a manner likely to confuse and irritate the mainstream audience.

On the other side, many of the set-pieces are brilliantly choreographed. Jennifer Lawrence looks especially attractive in her revealing blue Avatar-like body paint, or Quicksilver (Evan Peters), whose appearance did not inspire much confidence in the film’s marketing campaign, looks very cool while outpaces Magneto’s adversaries, making time stand still.

Moreover, there are a number of cameo appearances in a 130-minute long superhero film. One of them is Len Wein, co-creator of Wolverine and the man who gave new birth to the X-Men in the seventies. The other is Chris Claremont, the writer of the Days Of Future Past story. Sadly, there is no Stan Lee.

So far, Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past is at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.
