X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

The superhero genre is evolving. What initially was a campy, cheesy and totally unrealistic/fantasy genre has evolved, and it seems nowadays that the key for its success is the existentialist drama. Nolan truly awake it with Batman Begins, and since then the superhero flicks have never been the same, even if the first X-Men movies already had a glimpse of it. Days of Future Past follows the themes from X-Men: First Class, presenting what is now a stellar cast of new Hollywood icons such as Fassbender, McCavoy and Jennifer Lawrence, and that is by far the most clever move Bryan Singer does here. Honestly, who cares about Halle Berry, Ian McKellen or even Hugh Jackman here... As a product, the movie is a competent popcorn pleaser, competently written and competently directed. It has some good moments, but the overall result feels flat. The film risks nothing, delivering just what is expected from it, being no more than a reasonable good time to be had in the theatre. It could have been a total disaster tough, but it is not.
