Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a great 90 score, stating, “There is action galore, but Future Past is a deeper, richer, more thoughtful film, more existential in its contemplations than earlier Xs, all rather nicely embedded in the mayhem churned up by the mutants’ altered states.”
David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 90 score. He said: “While it’s more dramatically diffuse than the reboot and lacks a definitive villain, the new film is shot through with a stirring reverence for the Marvel Comics characters and their universe.”
Justin Chang over at Variety, gave it a 90 as well, saying, “If the characters’ quandaries at times feel overly circumscribed, they’re also advanced with a bracing emotional directness, devoid of either cynicism or sentimentalism, that touches genuine chords of feeling over the course of the film’s fleet 130-minute running time.”
Peter Travers over at Rolling Stone, gave it a 88 score, stating, “Step up, cynics, and see the summer 2014 blockbuster that gets damn near everything right.” Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it an 88 grade, saying, ” Think of it as a thrill ride with gravitas.”
Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it an 88 score, stating, ” Thanks to the first-class special effects, a star-packed cast, screenwriters who know just when to inject some self-aware comic relief without getting too jokey and director Bryan Singer’s skilled and sometimes electrifying visuals, X-Men: Days of Future Past is flat-out big-time, big summer movie fun.”
Lou Lumenick from the New York Post, gave it an 88. He stated: “Bryan Singer’s whip-smart and witty time-travel romp X-Men: Days of Future Past blows a breath of fresh air through the musty Marvel universe.”
