Consensus: X-Men: Days of Future Past combines the best elements of the series to produce a satisfyingly fast-paced outing that ranks among the franchise's finest installments.

It is especially impressive that Days of Future Past is a success; a film this gooey and complex, with such business-minded scope, should not feel like a real movie at all.

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.

The Monitor (McAllen, TX)

This is a movie with one of those diamond casts, full of award winners and nominees, and not one of them tries to overdo their role or gobble up screen time.

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.

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.

The race against time is the only genuine threat.

Christy Lemire

The results are both dazzling and intimate, clever and - during one tour-de-force sequence - spectacularly funny.

Alex Pappademas

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.

The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Director Bryan Singer infuses some actual humour up in this piece, and even though the whole thing is a sprawling, stupid mess (JFK?), it's entertaining, which is the best you can hope for in a series on track to outpace Nightmare on Elm Street.

A worthy addition to the X-Men franchise which successfully mixes in time travel into its plot in an attempt to link the old X-Men movies to the current ones,… More
