    The X-Men series needed this movie big time after messing up the series after X2. You can tell Fox didn't care too much about the series until Marvel's success and decided to redo the series to match up closer to the comics and make up for their mistakes, which Days of Future Past does. Building upon the success and foundation laid by First Class, Days of Future Past combines the First Class universe with the previous X-Men movies into one somewhat understable universe. Really you're not supposed to focus on all this and that's fine as the ending undoes almost every mistake Fox made especially from X-Men the Last Stand. It's all about the journey, not the destination. Time travel stories rarely make sense and Days of Future Past uses this to its advantage by not focusing at all on rules and effects and more about the mission: saving mutantkind from extinction. The plot follows Wolverine being sent back to the 70's to stop Mystique from assassinating a scientist which will cause an apocalypic future where indestructible killing machines called Sentinels wipe out most mutants and humans alike. The future is bleaker than most post apocalypic lands and the last remaining X-Men are betting everything on Wolverine to stop Mystique and reunite both Professor X and Magneto together; without them the dream of peaceful cohabitation between humans and mutants will be a pipe dream. One of the biggest problems with X-Men movies is they have overstuffed casts and Days of Future Past has so many that most are cameos at best and don't serve any purpose beyond fan service or use in action sequences. Don't bother to remember any of the mutants in the future as they're only used in set pieces and the one whose scene is easily the best, Quicksilver, is here and gone before you notice eh was even there in the first place. Halle Berry continues her useless streak as Storm by doing her usual routine of doing nothing or calling lightning out of the sky. Hugh Jackman continues to get better as Wolverine with each movie and Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellan are their usual best, but the real treat is their younger selves with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender giving them a run for their money as which pair are the better frienemies. The only weak spot is Jennifer Lawrence whose Mystique isn't that threatening or dark enough like her comic counterpart; it's not that believable. Days of Future Past is the successful redo the X-Men series desperately needed while setting seeds for the future that will next be seen in X-Men: Apocalypse. If you got turned off by the previous mediocre entries, then Days of Future Past will make you like the X-Men once again.

    Definitely Worth Watching on Blu-Ray

    I consider myself a pretty advanced comic book fan, so I was well aware of the original storyline, as well as the development of the film and the many changes made between the original source material and this film adaptation. As someone who works in the field, I am also aware of how much has to change in order for the adaptation to be as effective on film as the original was in 4 color print. All that being said, I was very pleased with the film, as both an avid movie-goer and as a comic book fan. This is definitely one of the better X-Men francise movies and I would actually place it as one of the top 3 (alongside X2: X-Men United and X-Men: First Class) X-Men films. It's a solid feature film that continues building the world established in First Class, while paying homage to the original trilogy of films. Humor, action, a strong story, VFX spectacle and solid performances make this a worthwhile film, though new viewers may not find it as enjoyable unless they've viewed the other entries into the series. I highly suggest watching X-Men, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand and most definitely X-Men: First Class prior to watching this film. X-Men Origins Wolverine and The Wolverine are optional, though I highly recommend avoiding X-Men Origins. Bryan Singer's return to the franchise felt surprisingly stale, after the fresh and unique spin applied by Matthew Vaughan in X-Men: First Class, though the usage of the "younger cast" helps considerably in keeping the franchise from feeling as long in the tooth as it actually is. Of course, the stand out cast members are hard pressed to compete with the scene-stealing Evan Peters as Quicksilver and his action sequence definitely stands among the top in the franchise, right up next to the Nightcrawler sequence from X2. The inventive use of camera work and VFX makes for a humorous and lively jailbreak sequence. All in all, I highly recommend this film for fellow film viewers and general audience members alike.

    MOVIE RULES, PACKAGING DOESN'T

    XMEN: DOFP is a great and fun "X-Men" movie that thankfully corrects a few of the mistakes the series has made in the past (primarily most, if not all, of X-Men: The Last Stand and ALL of X-Men Origins: Wolverine). It has a great cast lead, as always, by the irreplaceable Hugh Jackman and has awesome special effects. Along with a very easy to follow time travel plot (this is nowhere as mind-bending as say the first time you saw Back to the Future Part II). So the film comes highly recommended. But what does not is BB's exclusive packaging for the 3D version. On the site it looked cool and was priced at the same price most other 3D versions from other retailers was as well. Being a sucker for store exclusive packaging I up and ordered it and was disappointed to not only have the outer box come to me looking worn and torn but also the INSIDE of it looking like it had a few hands touching it. Basically, it looked like a hand me down and did not give me the Brand New feeling. Now, I'm not saying that I got a used copy considering the fact that I got it on release day but BB needs to find better ways to have items shipped to their customers. Especially smaller items like Blu ray movies that come in a cardboard packaging. I kinda wish I just stuck with the regular release that came with the slipcover. But whatever. Next year there will be an extended version that 20th Century Fox will be releasing so I have that one to look forward to. Until then, this is a great movie to enjoy until the newest X-Men adventure comes out in 2016.

    Best X-Men in the Series

    This is based on a comic book storyline from the X-Men comic books from somewhere around 1981. It's directed by Bryan Singer-he directed the first two X-Men movies-and I think this film is the best one in the series. It combines both the older and the newer characters by using time travel. The story starts off in the not too distant future, where Sentinels- mutant hunting robots-are eliminating any and all mutants wherever they can find them. The surviving X-Men come up with a plan to send Hugh-Wolverine-into the past, to prevent the building of the Sentinels. It seems that Hugh is the only X-Man that could survive the trip, what with his unique healing factor. Peter-Bolivar Trask-creates the mutant hunting robots in 1973 and Jennifer-Mystique- assassinates him, which causes the speedy production of the Sentinels. Hugh has to jump back in time, get the younger versions of James-Charles Xavier-and Michael-Magneto-to help him find Jennifer and then stop her, before the Sentinels kill the last mutants in the bleak future. There are several new mutants to keep an eye on; Warpath, Blink and Quicksilver are a few and Quicksilver is a real scene stealer. There is also a scene after the end credits which sets up the next X-Men movie; it shows a brief glimpse of the next villain and his name starts with an "A". It's rated "PG-13" for violence, language and has a running time of 2 hours & 11 minutes. I really enjoyed this one and I would buy it on Blu-Ray.

    Xmen Days of Future Past 'Rogue Cut' is is a slightly different (longer) edit of the theatrical release. Though the Rogue Cut is by no means bad, I personally felt the theatrical cut is the better film. It's more focused and concentrates on the central plot points. Rogue Cut adds dialogue between some of the minor characters, and unnecessary dialogue among the lead characters... it doesn't contribute to the main storyline, nor does it really help character development. Also, note that Fox studio has begun re-issuing some recent Bluray releases. The older print (2014/2015) comes with an ITunes digital-HD code, which redeems as 4K/UHD. The newer Bluray release (2018) comes with a MoviesAnywhere digital-HD code -- it only redeems as HD (not 4K/UHD.) If this is important to you, make sure to inspect the back-cover of the Bluray -- if it says "MoviesAnywhere", then it's the newer (less desirable) print.

    A nice but unnecessary extended cut

    Bryan Singer says that this is a brand new version of the film, but let's be honest - he was probably fed that line by Fox in order to try to convince us to buy it. Did it work? Yeah. But after watching it, I absolutely understand why these extra scenes were cut, as they're a distraction from the main storyline. The part where Mystique comes back to the mansion secretly and has a moment with Beast wasn't needed either. I appreciate seeing the extra footage, but it could easily have been added in the deleted scenes section instead of this blatant cash grab - because the extra scenes don't make it its own unique version in the least. They were kind enough to add in new extras/features, however, which is the main reason I actually picked it up. For those of you who don't own the movie, this is an obvious buy since it contains both the Rogue Cut and the Theatrical Cut. For those who have bought the Theatrical Cut when it was first released, ask yourself if spending $15-20 (depending on when it's on sale) is worth it for some neat extras. Otherwise, you may wish to pass. Still a cautious recommendation.

    Great Movie. Decent 4k Conversion.

    First off we love this movie. It's a great X-Men flick and basically another Wolverine movie. Only reason for not giving it five stars is the video is not from a new 4k HDR master, it is upconverted from the Blu-ray master, and the sound is the same from the Blu-ray release. While is is disappointing not have a new video master the picture looks quite good, not 4k popping good but good. It may be the old Blu-ray would look as good upconverted, so if you already own it you might want to hold off buying the 4K copy. We don't mind these failings too much since it's a movie we love and it looks a lot better the the X-Men First Class 4K disc. Again biggest gripe is FOX does not redeem 4K movie digital copies in 4k Digital, you will get the same HD digital copy you get with the regular blu-ray. This is a disappointment because so many other studios are trying to redeem there 4K blu-ray digital codes in 4k HDR. This will affect our future purchases of FOX 4k movies.

    Not the standard edit. Like the black box version of The Wolverine, The Rogue Cut is the better draw of DoFP. It has both versions, and in my mind the Rogue Cut is more thorough. Sadly, theatre versions and misc. cuts exist. (I personally deem it a grand premeditated marketing scheme). Typically, the Director's Cut of a film is definitive and this one is no exception. It has a little more sentinel battle action and includes a welcome comeback of a familiar alum to the franchise, just in case you were tired of having Jackman's and Lawrence's current celebrity status smeared on every other scene. 7.1 Audio for people concerned about this. For my setup, I miss a little bit of low channel frequency during these types of playback, and dialogue seems quitter than when in 5.1 channel. But the picture will blow your mind, especially the digital effects for the future sentinels. Actually, get this over the 4K version as well, until they release the Rogue Cut on 4K Blu-ray.

    Demo worthy disc with nice exclusive tchotchkes

    As with the majority of big budget superhero films, this disc will make a great home theater demo disc, especially the Quicksilver sequence if one has a 3D home setup. However, this set is pretty light on extras compared to previous disc releases from this franchise. The Best Buy exclusive packaging includes a set of "confidential mutant files" from Trask Industries that features the film's characters with info on their powers and backstories along with a very cool Sentinel slipcase. Unfortunately, Singer's return to Fox's X-Franchise (while correcting many Marvel Comic fan's misgivings with some of the plot elements of film's past) still falls into the same trappings of underutilizing the team aspects of this Marvel property in lieu of focusing on Jackman's Wolverine. FYI, it has been announced that there will be an extended cut of the film released sometime in the near future with the previously cut Rogue subplot edited back into the film.

    Keep this BLU RAY despite re-release!

    Ok so if you are a fan of this movie you should definitely get the Rogue Cut as it makes an already great film even a little better. But whether you see it as a positive or negative that edition does not carry over all the special features from this blu-ray so you gotta hang on to this one (unfortunately?) and not sell or trade it. As a blu ray in and of itself its a well put together release but there is a sense of double dipping as the studio knew they were going to release this title twice in a relatively short span. I feel the studios have gotten more fair in terms of just releasing an alternative version on the initial release (like Batman V Superman or the Logan black and white cut). Anyways we all know Days of Futures Past is great and arguably the best X-Men movie but my purpose of this review is for blu ray freaks to let them know there is content exclusive to this disc if you want all special features.

    One of the Top X-Men Movies

    Days of Future Past is one of the top-tier X-Men films. This movie does a commendable job of connecting both the original trilogy and the First Class cast into one film. Even though this movie really messed up the timeline (and makes it hard to watch the X-Men films in anything other than the release order), it still has solid acting and a decent script. The action set-pieces are good and everything seems to click. The Rogue Cut is a nice, longer version that completes the narrative a bit better. It has more content and even some completely altered scenes. The differences helped make the film easier and more fun to watch. The audio in Rogue Cut also seemed different, as I was able to hear slight changes in pre-existing scenes.

    I'm never sure if people are looking for a straight up review of the movie or if it is worthy of a 3D price tag so I'll try to help with both. The quality of the 3D aspects of this movie are awesome. The depth and quality of backgrounds (which is usually lacking in 3D movies) were great and the action scenes were phenomenal. Overall I thought the movie was trying too hard and there was too much to follow. If you are a fan of the genre it isn't as difficult but the fast pace makes it hard to truly develop characters that are new and this movie just felt rushed. Even with that being said the movie was great. They could have made a 2 part movie with the amount of stuff they packed in but just like Avengers, there is a continuum that makes it unnecessary. I recommend buying the movie and watching it twice.

    I would give this five stars but the DVD release of X-Men Days of Future Past is severely lacking and with no combo pack option (which seem to be disappearing all together) the DVD basically only gets a short gag reel. I of course will pick up the Blu-Ray release at a later date, but advise those with a blu-ray player and spend the extra $2 this first week and go for the blu-ray no matter what. Again very good film and at the top if not my favorite of the whole X-Men franchise. Solid acting, great story that has references and lot of thing true to the comics and animated series, while also giving us a new story and connecting the two distinctly different franchise together very smoothly and gives the X-Men universe a great overhaul that leaves us wanting more from both casts.

    Wow. After The Wolverine, the franchise needed a movie like this. As a movie, it's a solid, well made adventure with great ties to previous X-films and shouldn't be missed by fans. As a disc, it's also good. The bonus features, while not as meaty as the extensive extras from the original trilogy, are decent. The deleted scenes are a nice treat as is Singer's commentary for them. The interviews are somewhat informative and entertaining. The only real complaint is the lack of any sort of commentary. Singer's commentaries on the first two X-Men films are solid. They give a nice glimpse into the world of film making and the choices the creative team made. There's nothing like that here. That'd be nice to hear about. Still, it's an enjoyable release for a solid film.

    It's still my least favorite of the franchise. Generally speaking, I'm much more of a DC franchise person than a Marvel franchise person; the DC movies are darker and have a moodier feel than their often slapstick counterparts. X-Men is an exception to that rule. Living in a world torn apart by social issues and forced to choose between existing with or fighting the non-evolved humans on the planet, the director does a good job of balancing the options of the plot and making sure nothing seems out of place. While this movie does follow the comics fairly well it comes across as a bit more of a graphic novel interpretation than the others in the series. This serves to make it a bit less accessible to the general audience.

    I loved this movie from the first time I saw it. I was a bit reluctant about buying this version because I didn't really believe anything too significant would be added to warrant a new purchase. The addition of Rouge's scenes are great, but some of the other additions just seem to slow the narrative down a bit. A few extra lines were added for characters like Bishop, Sunfire, and Warpath but they're not all that important. You can definitely tell that the CGI used on the extra scenes isn't on par with the rest of the film and can be a little distracting. All-in-all it's still the same, fantastic movie released the first time around with some tweaks. That said, I would only recommend this version if you don't already own the original release.

    The film itself without a doubt is great. And the product is also nice. Overall I thought the deal was great for a collector's edition, got it for $23. Aside from the obvious: blu-ray, blu-ray 3d and digital copy, you get a cool package with a unique cover art, some case files about mutants and the Trask's program, and a collection of fan art. I thought the extra features were fairly decent. Do I think they're holding on to a good bit of extra features for a later release? Of course they are. And that is really my only complaint. However I would like to also point out that I don't think it's worth what it costs now, $45. Unless you really want the fan art and case files, your bonus film content will be the same I would guess. Hope this helps.

    bought this in store on release day. it's basically the same Blu-ray as the regular 3d version, but with the fancier packaging. under this slipcover is a box that contains the plastic bluray box (same as standard version), and a deck of cards with information about sentinels and select x-men. not sure if every deck is the same, or if it's a random selection of characters. this is the first blu ray set that I've purchased that only includes the 3d br, the regular br, and digital copy. the studio finally got it right and ditched the regular dvd usually included with the other discs. the dvd is generally pretty useless to me, and its omission reduced the price of the set by $7. I sure hope all 3d br sets are like this going forward.

    I personal feel that this is the best X-Men movie is years. They were able to take a two comic storyline and turn it into an unforgettable X-Men film. In the Future, Mutants are all but extinct thanks to killer machines called sentinels. With the help of kitty pride, Wolverine is sent back in time to stop the sentinel program from happening. He meets much resistance from the mutants who would later in life become his friends. Can Wolverine convince his fellow mutants to help save their futures, or will he fail, leaving the mutants to go extinct? What I really like about this film, is that it's storyline undoes what the last two films did, as far as story goes. This film fixes the mistakes of the others.

    It's been 15 years since the first Xmen movie was released and in that time we've had 9 movies featuring characters from the franchise. With the destructive ending in "The Last Stand" Fox looked to open a new window on the series, not with a reboot but a jump backward in time. "Days of Future Past" allows for an alternate universe/timeline to take over for course correction - a theme often visited in the comics and cartoon series. The timing seems right as well, with the leads from the original movies starting to age out (we're looking at you professor). The new direction offers a fun and exiting journey for fans to embark on as they follow their favorite mutants through the decades.
