X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Review

X-Men Days of Future Past is certainly one of the better X-Men films although to me it’s not the best. The acting and style of the 70’s timeline was excellent. The human (or mutant) element was strong throughout the film especially between Xavier and Erik which is a necessity for an X-Men franchise. The story was fresh and benefitted from adapting a brilliant comic story arc, and even if the film didn’t quite live up to that story it still had a deeper concept at its core. The visuals are great and from the mutant powers to the near costume drama set up by the 70’s timeline. Bryan Singer went back into his franchise with ease and whilst I still think Mathew Vaughn’s interpretation of the franchise was better this was still a fine X-Men film. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Professor X: “You took the things that mean the most to me.”

Magneto: “Maybe you should have fought harder for them.”

Kick-Ass 2 (2013) Review

Kick-Ass 2 is a lot of fun and whilst it may not be as excellent as the first film it has its moments. It’s a little hard to describe this film in a review, when its good it’s really good and when it’s not it’s quite boring. The continuation worked quite well from the first film and the theme of real world superheroes was expanded to Justice Forever (loved that) with some new “heroes”. The characters aren’t as consistent or memorable as in the first film and there was little connection to the big deaths. I have more complaints and nit-picking so read on. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

The Wolverine (2013) Review

This film is surprisingly good. I supremely did not expect to be saying that but I truly mean it. I am a big fan of the comic series this film is based on which is called Wolverine and whilst this film played a little fast and loose with this material, overall they managed to adapt the main story pretty well. I’d actually go as far as to say this film was one of the best X-Men films. The characters where good, the story was fresher than most and there was a distinctive style somewhere between the comic it is based on and the X-Men film series. I do have some complaints and nit-picking so read on. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
