X-Men - Days of Future Past
Okay so I have been so super pumped for this movie since I saw the first trailer. I have loved all the previous X-Men movies and I am an old school fan, as in watching the cartoons as a child. My favourite character is Gambit and unfortunately he was not in this movie.
This movie as promising things about it. Having the younger and older versions of Magneto and Professor X would be great but... I don't know. I enjoyed the movie, I just didn't love it. But what I did love was Evan Peters as Quicksilver. He was just hilarious.
The premise of the movie is that the mutants are being hunted to extinction by the Sentinels, who were created by Bolivar Trask. The Sentinels start taking out the mutants and any humans who help the mutants. Knowing that they cannot win this war they decide to send Wolverine's consciousness back to his younger self in the 70's. They think that because Mystique kills Bolivar Trask and that starts the Sentinel program, so if they stop her from killing him that the Sentinel's never get made. Wolverine starts with Professor X and Beast, persuading them of what needs to be done the next they have to break out Magneto who is imprisoned underneath the pentagon, well Wolverine knew the only person who could break him out was Quicksilver. The escape was great then off they went to track down Mystique.After numerous attempting at trying to persuade her Magneto decides to take things into his own hands, so that means him and Professor X are back to being enemies again.
As this is happening in the past, the mutants in the future, Storm, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, Bishop, Blink and the older versions of Magneto and Prof X are hiding from the Sentinel's who are heading their way. You also find out that Bolivar Trask uses Mystique's DNA and using it in the Sentinel's allow them to adapt to their enemies, which makes them harder to kill.
I don't want to give the ending away but things do get worked out. And you end up seeing faces that you thought you would never see again.

Starting to love JL as Mystique - Do Not Move!
This might sting a little
Yes I am Magneto, you should bow to my greatness. Plus I'm super hot :)
I don't really understand her gift but it looks cool
Will somebody just kill him already
The boys are back in town!!
Don't worry guys, I got this.
Just die already
So overall, it was good, not the best X-Men movie I've ever seen but it was still good.
