The X-Men franchise knows how to deliver the goods -- this movie is thrilling filmmaking, a deft combination of engaged storytelling and impressive special effects. (Plus, heaps of charisma from the likes of McAvoy, Fassbender, and Jackman). While the film sometimes feels overcrowded, with too many characters and a busy plot -- you may find yourself wishing you'd spent more time getting to know a character or doing without them at all -- X-Men: Days of Future Past manages to be entertaining, not just for die-hard X-Men fans but also for those seeing it without the X-Men fandom lens. It's great to watch the talented cast do their thing, do it well, and enjoy themselves to boot. The audience will be cheering them on.
