Storyline

In the future, the mutants and the humans that help them are slaughtered by powerful robots named Sentinels. Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Kitty Pryde and her friends meet at a monastery in China and Xavier explains that the invincible Sentinels were created using the DNA of Mystique that was captured in 1973 when she tried to assassinate their creator Dr. Bolivar Trask. Xavier tells that their only chance is return to 1973 using Pryde's ability to join Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr to convince Mystique to give up of her intention. . However, only Wolverine can withstand the damages of the time travel. Will he succeed in stopping Mystique and the Sentinel Program and save the mutants and their human friends from annihilation?

Trivia

Wolverine wakes up in 1973, and learns that his claws are bone, not metal, and that he does not remember sleeping with the young woman, with whom he is in bed. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), which took place six years after this film, Wolverine gained metal claws made from Adamantium, replacing his bone claws, and suffered permanent amnesia when being shot in the head by William Stryker.

Goofs

The 1973 events of the film are implied to take place in January, as this is when the peace accords in the film were actually held. When Quicksilver is first visited in his basement, he is listening to "Hello Hooray" by Alice Cooper, from the album "Billion Dollar Babies". Billion Dollar Babies was not released until the latter days of February 1973. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Professor X: The future: a dark, desolate world. A world of war, suffering, loss on both sides. Mutants, and the humans who dared to help them, fighting an enemy we cannot defeat. Are we destined down this path, destined to destroy ourselves like so many species before us? Or can we evolve fast enough to change ourselves... change our fate? Is the future truly set?

A Visually Stunning And Exhilarating Flick
5 June 2014 | by (Worcester, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

2014 has proved to be a successful year so far for Marvel with 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and the most recent 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'. Bryan Singer returns for the most recent X-Men after being absent for the past four films, and what a return he has made. 'Days of Future Past' is truly an impressive and spectacular instalment in both the 'X- Men' franchise and the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, combining the casts from both the original trilogy and the prequel allowing the audience to view the 'X-Men' in the past, present and future. The action scenes are intense and spectacularly choreographed with some fantastic heroes and foes fighting both against and alongside each other. As a personal opinion, 'Days of Future Past' is the best film to have graced the Marvel film franchise and one of the greatest superhero films of all-time. A visually stunning and exhilarating flick that combines the best elements of the series to create a fantastic and entertaining film.
