It’s that time again for another X-Men Franchise which kids, avid fans and even older people who grew up with this Superhero Movie will surely watch on big screen. ” features more mutants than have ever been on screen together before for a massive adventure launching us from an apocalyptic future back into the world of the First Class team.
In Days of Future Past, a years-long world conflict between humans and mutants has taken its toll on their numbers, and now a scant few remain, including Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Erik “Magneto” Lehnsherr (Ian McKellen), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). Driven to near extinction by the technological terrors unleashed by Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), the team forms a desperate plan: time travel.
Director Bryan Singer’s brilliant mind incorporates Time-Travel to add up excitement and a whole lot of twists in this film.
Thanks to Kitty Spade’s ability to send back fellow mutants from the past. As far as Time-Travel is concerned, a real throwback is going to happen as Professor X sends Wolverine from Post-Apocalyptic Period back to Circa 70’s to prevent Mystique ( Jennifer Lawrence) from killing the scientist- Bolivar Trask.. and to help the young Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) rise from his dark days and possibility of renewing of friendship of the latter and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and of course, save the mutants from extinction caused by the Sentinels.
Singer and director of photography Newton Thomas Sigel used high-speed phantom cameras and photo-sonic technology to film the Pentagon break-in and escape sequence, one of the film’s most technically intricate and visually arresting scenes. The scene was shot at 3000 frames per second with Quicksilver running along the walls in the Pentagon kitchen, parallel to the ground.
One of our favorite part is the one with Quicksilver using his speed and humor while doing clock-stopper moves at Pentagon and then make everyone laugh in the movie house with his playful gestures. (watch out why) As the saga continues, expect to lesser action but more of the back story plus the appearance of Mutants including Jean Grey, Quicksilver, Beast, Storm, Cyclops (personal favorite), Iceman, Bishop, Blink, Rogue and more.
It’s a great comeback for Director Bryan Singer who directed the X-Men and X2: X-Men United and surely knows how to play with the element of storytelling, action, drama and hope.
Don’t blink – Quicksilver will speed up in Philippine cinemas when “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (3d) opens May 21 nationwide from 20th Century Fox be distributed by Warner Bros.
