Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Much of this takes place in the early 1970s, which gives the filmmakers an excuse to haul out lots of vintage kitsch and make some rather tasteless references to the Vietnam war."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Quicksilver ... is the coolest of this picture's new guys, zipping around so fast ... that he can taste soup, rearrange guards' limbs, and nudge bullets off their trajectories all in the time it takes to blink."
‑ Bob Mondello, NPR
"Alternately thought-provoking, philosophical, and politically conscious. It's also seriously cool."
‑ Rob Humanick, The Berks-Mont News
"The period details and zeitgeist echoes--along with one bravura sequence--make this another entertaining entry, though this rebooted, revised and repopulated franchise is starting to see diminishing returns."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"This is the seventh X-Men film, the fifth team movie, and we're still dealing with the same "Eric says kill the humans before they kill us" vs. "Charles says give peace a chance" plot."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"The results are both dazzling and intimate, clever and - during one tour-de-force sequence - spectacularly funny."
‑ Christy Lemire, ChristyLemire.com
"The plot is about a fearful society whose expansion of its security apparatus has unintended consequences, but Singer doesn't even touch the story's topical resonances... There's also no real moral quandary to be grappled with."
‑ Alex Pappademas, Grantland
"( ... ) one of the stars showboat nor are they overshadowed by the mind-blowing special effects."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Despite all of its flaws, X-Men: Days of Future Past is incredibly fun ... This movie doesn't take itself too seriously, and neither should its audience."
‑ Austin Trunick, Under the Radar
"As with much of Singer's filmography, the intrigue of the idea ultimately overshadows the execution."
‑ Neil Miller, Film School Rejects
"I would be remiss not to note that tucked away amid all the existential melodrama is perhaps the most hilarious set piece ever to grace a superhero film."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Perhaps more than any other superhero franchise, X-Men captures the overlapping fantasies of being unique yet not alone, and of being a hero but also being saved."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A sublime adventure that deftly juggles character and plot."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"X-Men: Days of Future Past is a remarkable achievement."
‑ Mark Hughes, Forbes
"Shows Singer exercising some much-needed control over the franchise he built 14 years ago and wrangling a lot of loose ends -- a welcome return, and although the material itself is a little unwieldy, it successfully brings together characterizations."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
