    Doesn't add much

    I bought X-Men: Days of Future Past when it was first released on Blu Ray and I have to say, I thought it was a good movie. I enjoyed the earlier films more because I felt the cast embodied the characters more. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen feel more like the personifications of Charles Xavier and Magneto than James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender do. My opinion. The fact that this film brought together the original cast with the new, as well as Bryan Singer returning to the director char, was cause for a lot of excitement. At the end I don't think the movie quite lived up to the hype. Still a good movie, just not a great one. When I saw they were releasing The Rogue Cut, my excitement piqued again. I know that Anna Paquin didn't have a lot of time to be on set during filming so her part would be small, and in the theatrical release her role was pretty much just a brief cameo at the end. She maybe had one line. So I was curious to see what unreleased footage they may have shot with her. And while it did expand her part in the film a little bit, really it just felt like nothing more than an extended cameo. So if you've already bought the theatrical release of Days of Future Past, you probably won't get much more out of The Rogue Cut.

    Buy if you don't have the theatrical version

    Just to get down to basics, this is absolutely a better cut of the film than the original theatrical version. That said, it's not a lot better. Oddly, the improvements have very little to do with Rogue, herself. Yes, she has an actual role this time, but we still don't get a lot of her as a character. Her presence really just serves to make Iceman's arc more interesting and add some decent action sequences. The best addition is a scene between Beast and Mystique, which has noting to do with Rogue. The film's problems all still remain (e.g. never answering questions such as how Kitty got the power to send people into the past, how Logan got the metal claws back after The Wolverine, and why Xavier's new body is physically identical to his old one and also just happens to also have a spinal injury). Ultimately, you should buy this version if 1) you don't already own a copy of the theatrical version, and 2) you don't feel you need a 3D copy of the movie. The advantages of the new version just aren't enough to justify the money if you already have the original, but if you're just going to have one copy, this is the version to get.

    A very average release

    So, the movie is fine, it even borders on great at points. This review isn’t for the film itself, it’s for the Steelbook/Blu ray release of the film. The case itself is fine, it’s boring, but it “matches” the other X-men steelbooks. One annoying issue is that fingerprints and residue from the packaging are really obvious against this case (not a dealbreaker, but irritating). The video and sound on the movie are great, it looks beautiful and the sound is balanced in a way that is really nice. Special features are pretty weak but they are your standard features. The big knock on this one is that it does not include the “rogue cut” of the film. Overall, it’s a fine Steelbook, but it won’t be the “gem” of anyone’s collection. If you’re not necessarily a Steelbook collector I’d recommend just getting the Rogue Cut instead since both versions are on that set.

    This is a true middle of the road superhero movie... I used to have over 100 X-Men comics back in the day so I don't say that lightly! If you have a comic book background, the story arch is familiar and it's the perfect story needed to fix the wrongs that were done with the third X-Men movie. I'm not going to reveal spoilers except to say that the acting is pretty average. It's hard to get attached to these characters. Also for parents of younger children: we've all kind of gotten used to the violence in movies but there was one instance of the f*** word being said and when you're a dad sitting with your children it's a bit uncomfortable.

    For some reason, it won't play

    I bought this super special edition of Xmen DoFP. I wanted the extra features and cool stuff. I get home, I put it in the BluRay player in the living room. It says it can't playback the disc. I try it half a hundred times, same thing. It plays Avenger, Thor, Thor 2, Captain America, Captain America 2 and all other BluRays fine, but not X-Men. It plays on my PS3 and PS4 in my bedroom, but not the BluRay player. I have made sure it was the BluRay disc and everything, it won't work. I went and exchanged it, still won't work. Amazing movie, but I am very disappointed and borderline p*ssed off.

    This isn't a bad movie per se..decent plot, lots of great action & character development but when it's all said & done this movie is nothing more than a barely passable attempt at tying the original X-Men trilogy to the First Class movie. The movie pretty much a drawn out reboot to the original franchise & Singer's way of hitting the reset button on all of the missteps & character deaths that took place. While it's an enjoyable movie, if you have more than a passing knowledge of X-Men, you'll realize that the way that the threads of these movies were woven together is poor at best.

    This movie is filled with a highly enjoyable cast. By far, one of the most gripping films I've seen in the X-Men franchise. The characters are well written, the story is believable (can I even say that?), and the film kept my interest the entire time. A bonus was the special best buy exclusive packaging for this film, which includes some very nice box-art and character cards that add additional information on your favorite people. I would certainly recommend this film, AND, the special Best Buy exclusive version.

    This is not a negative review, as this is a fairly standard purchase. The Blu-ray includes several interesting behind the scenes discussions. But the original cut of the film was much longer and had entire sequences cut, reducing Anna Paquin to a cameo (but she still gets higher billing than Ellen Page who is integral to the story?) None of this material is included, which means that a new, extended version cut of the film may be in the works making this purchase unnecessary for a collector like myself.

    Not sure a sequel was needed so soon

    While not certain where Deadpool fits in the X-Men universe, the sequel isn't as much fun as the original. His humor is like a R rated Spider-Man and if you're not fully paying attention, you can kind of confuse the 2 characters when they're in battle due to their constant need to banter with the villain. It's not a bad movie but I don't know if we needed a sequel so soon.

    3D is great, digital copy is a disappointment

    One of the best of the Xmen series. 3D copy of the movie is great and was very effective on my large screen. For the price, get this set vs. the deluxe edition with no 3D disk. The con is that you have to choose either iTunes or Ultraviolet for your digital copy. Frankly, that's a bit cheesy. iTunes is the better option since it works on all Apple devices and through Apple TV, but you shouldn't have to choose between services. This dropped my rating to 3 stars.

    Why not the "Rogue Cut" ?

    I bought this because I did enjoy the movie when I saw it at the theatre. Also because the day after I bought this I was planning on going to see Logan at the theatre, and this 4K UHD had a $7.50 off ticket price. I can't understand why they'd release a 4K disc without the Rogue Cut edition. Come on, man! I haven't purchased a 4K compatible receiver yet, so I haven't gotten the full experience yet, but it does look good.

    In comparison to the previous X-Men movies, this was a little bit of a disappointment. I was still good, as anything Marvel or X-Men is, but there were parts that I felt they were just making things up without thinking about how it makes sense. The bonus "Rogue Cut" only added tiny bits and pieces scattered throughout the last 1/3 of the movie. It was still decent, but it was also frustrating and not even close to being my favorite Marvel movie.

    X-Men Confusion

    This was the first X-Men movie I have viewed. It did required more than average concentration to follow the story. Additionally, I was not familiar with the X-Men characters and their personalities. Perhaps a second or third viewing would be enlightening. The video presentation was above average, and the 3D version was satisfyingly 3D! Recommended for true fans of the franchise at this point.

    I purchased the 3D version of Xmen because it was priced the same as the regular blu-ray. My problem with the 3D movies is that all the effects seem to be loaded into the first 15 minutes, and this film did the same thing. Things were cool at the beginning, but the longer the movie went the less 3D effects we saw. The movie is worth buying but unless you can get the 3D version for the same price as the blu-ray, I'd just go with the blu-ray.

    Same movie, I’m glad I waited for this movie to get cheap $5 was not bad, cause if I would’ve paid the $19.99 on it I would be mad cause I hardly noticed anything new to this movie. I thought Rogue version was going to have more scenes, but NO I’m very disappointed on this version.

    I've come to expect hit and miss movies from a franchise like X-Men and while this wasn't a miss, I didn't feel that it was a hit. I thought that it was pretty middle of the road. There was some good character development but I wasn't impressed with the story line. It seems as if there have been a lot of "go back in time to save the world/race" movies lately so it didn't feel very original. As always, good special effects, makeup, etc.

    I WAS VERY EXCITED THEN DISAPPOINTED AFTER PURCHASING. INTERJECTING ROGUE INTO THE MAIN ROLE DID NOTHING FOR THE FILM. TOO LONG AND NOT PROGRESSIVE AT ALL. ALSO, THERE WERE MAJOR STORY ISSUES THAT OVERLAPPED AND PRODUCED ERRONEOUS CONTRADICTIONS IN THE STORY. I WOULD RECOMMEND BECAUSE YOU NEED IT FOR THE MARVEL COLLECTION.

    I read the reviews about how this was the best X-men movie ever, I was very disappointed, I found myself waiting for the exciting parts but they rarely lived up to expectation. The movie doesn't capitalize on the main draw for me (The Sentinels), they are hardly in the movie, and when they are the scenes don't last very long. I believe First Class was definitely a superior movie to this.

    This one was not as good as the previous one, but it is worth watching once or twice if you enjoyed the previous movies. The story line was trash so I believe that they are just making these movies for the money...the passion for making good films has completely left the building. No wonder "J Law" seemed so happy that the next film will be the last film that she is contracted to do.

    As a fan of the Xmen series I enjoyed watching Days of Future Past in the theater and knew I wanted a copy on DVD or Blue Ray. Well worth the money and good quality as well. Great action, adventure and drama and good acting. FYI there were some parts- action and drama scenes went on for too long and others that could have been more developed. If you like the Xmen you'll enjoy DOFP.
