Finally saw X-Men today, and sadly, it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. I still like it better than X-Men 3 and both Wolverine movies, but X2: United is still my favorite X-Men movie.
Days of Future Past had a great cast and cool story, but all the inconsistencies with time and the previous movies just kept me from fully enjoying the movie and the ending was kind of hard to believe.
I don’t what to leave without pointing out some of the highlights of the movie. I was glad to see Colossus and Iceman back in action. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is always good, and new comer Quicksilver was cool too. Too bad it won’t be the same guy in Avengers 2. Also surprise appearances by some of our favorite mutants, and finally, a cool setup for X-Men: Apocalypse.
Just so you understand what I’m talking about I will give some examples of the inconsistencies. First off, William Stryker. In X-Men: First Class he is shown as an old man, so why the fuck does he look like he is in his late 20s ten years later?
Also, we have Wolverine’s claws. Why are they still adamantium in the future, when they were cut off in The Wolverine? He should have his bone claws again. The adamantium wouldn’t regenerate, only his bones would.
