The New X-men movie (Days of Future Past, or “6” if you count the stand alones) is as game changingly entertaining as the first installment [link: ] was, back in 2000. With Bryan Singer back at the helm after a complicated leave (long story involving Superman), this movie delivers righteously and goes on to correct (or erase) some of the major pitfalls of the third movie. Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, and the rest of the cast all deliver solid performances that leave the audience extremely satisfied.

The story does contain a parallel (and then perpendicular) tie in with X-Men: First Class, so it is recommended that you see that first.

The story is simple, gets complicated, and wraps up with a nice easter egg/cliff hanger for serious fans. There are also tons of underlaying themes and messages about giving second chances, overcoming addiction and how strong friendships die hard.

Plus, after the credits there is a teaser of apocalyptic proportions (quite literally, I might add). So definitely go see this movie. Even though it is not in sync with the original story (from the comic books), it acts as sort of a reboot (and without Matt Damon cast as Wolverine).

At the close, I would like to thank Epic Theaters for their providing a very amiable theater in which to view this (and other) movies and recommend that you go to one of their several local locations for your next cinematic experience.
