What! A new X-men movie!? I was too excited when I saw the theatrical poster for this movie. However when I watched the trailer my excitement turned to confusion. There were a number of questions that arose in my head after seeing the trailer. Questions I thought this movie could never answer…hmmmmmm. Although I was looking forward to see another X-Men movie, I went into the theater thinking this one would ruin the franchise. Hot Damn!!! I was wrong! Yay!…lol
Ummmmmm…where do I start with this movie, because it kicked off with a bang from the start. Wholly Cow!!! The opening scene with the Sentinels! I was about to lose my Sh%t…seriously. I watched this movie on the regular screen, but I definitely think the action sequences in this movie are well worth the upgrade for better viewing. I can’t with the Sentinels…wow! From the beginning the story moves along at a great pace and answering all my concerns I had when I watched the trailer.
I need to pause for a minute and give a shout out to Hugh Jackman…ladies can I get an AMEN!…ummmmm…yeah. I know some of you men were sitting next to your women feeling ashamed as she stared and drooled at the screen…Ha! I’d also like to give a shout out to Michael Fassbender. I’ve never seen a hat and a pair of sunglasses look so damn good! (fanning myself…wooooo!) Ok…I’m done…back to the review…
There are some amazing new mutants who had a chance to shine in this movie. My favorites were Blink (who can create portals) and Quicksilver (who can move at superhuman speed). There is a kitchen scene with Quicksilver that will knock your socks off. My mouth stayed open in amazement. That scene was shot so beautifully I couldn’t stand it. When the movie reaches its last scene I was too through.
Saying I loved this movie is definitely an understatement. The franchise outdid itself with this one. This one gets a standing ovation from me. I may be giving this movie more credit than you think it deserves, but one thing is for sure, this is one you need to see…A+!
