My Take – Lets get some things out of the way 1stly X-Men: DOFP serves a sequel to X-Men: Last Stand (2006), X-Men First Class (2011) & The Wolverine (2013)! Fans of the original trilogy and First Class will definitely enjoy this nostalgic perfect and well balanced mix between the original characters and the new ones (well the originals don’t have much screen time as expected).
Hugh Jackman is always great in his most popular role (Note: Please don’t make any more standalone movies, they are terrible!). Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen & Michael Fassbender are great actors & its always a delight to watch them. But without doubt its James McAvoy & Jennifer Lawrence along with Evan Peters (as Quick Silver) who turn out as the show stealer s!
Director Bryan Singer (X-men, X2, Superman Returns) delivers a surprisingly top notch entertaining film with a potent story, some good twists with enough emotional content that helps to live up to its expectations mixed with terrific special effects and cinematography which can be watched & loved by every movie goer not just the fan boys, except the 3D is a big NO NO!! Must watch!!!
