X-Men: Days of Future Past
View All (8)
even though you can look at this film as a "we're sorry for the past mistakes, we'll make up for them", the filmmakers have actually managed to fix the past errors, mostly the continuity, with exceptional pieces of plotting and sequences that are not just inspired, but also exciting to watch as they unravel.
It certainly didn't hurt my viewing experience that it was the characters that I have enjoyed the most in past films.
One of the nice surprises about Days of Future Past is that after i saw it, I felt the previous films, especially X2 and First Class, were actually enriched by the retroactive continuity updates.
