X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Days of Future Past opens in a bleak year 2023 (in which apparently black and gray are the standard colors for, well everything). Sentinels -- giant robots that can adapt to almost anything -- have killed or enslaved both humans and mutants. A bunch of mutants -- including Charles Xavier/Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Erik Lehnsherr (Ian McKellen), and Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) -- have been surviving by having Kitty Pryde send a mutant's mind back to before any Sentinel attack, allowing that mutant to warn the others and avoid the attack before it happens. This gives the others an idea to stop the war.
X-Men: Days of Future Past ends with a potential reboot of the X-Men movie franchise. While this movie had as many problems as strengths, I am curious to see what happens next.
Overall grade: B-
