Will You Watch X-Men: Days of Future Past?

Last Saturday, I watched the latest X-Men movie Days of Future Past. It was good and I was okay with it but it is below my expectation. I'm not a movie critic so my views are based on my own set of biases. Most of my friends though said the same thing: It's okay.. but it's just okay.

Capitalizing on Jennifer Lawrence

I just felt that the movie capitalized so much on Jennifer Lawrence's popularity. In the previous X-Men series (2000 onward), Mystique is not a central figure of the story. She was portrayed as just one of the trusted assistant of magneto. Although her character was given much attention in the new series which began in X-Men: First Class, she has never been a critical character until this movie.

It's not that I don't like her story but I feel that instead of entitling the movie as Days of Future Past, I find the movie more of an X-Men Origins: Mystique.

Again, overall, the movie was good but it failed to emphasize interesting themes unlike the X-Men First Class. For me, the movie is shallow and predictable relative to my expectations.

Long Lines in the Cinema

It's been four days since X-Men: Days of Future Past was first shown in Cinemas here in Cebu. Yet, the lines are still very long. We started lining up around 6 in the evening but the line was still long until around 9. Recent reports confirmed a successful weekend for the movie.

As a conclusion, it's all up to you whether to watch it or not. I have no particular recommendation when it comes to this movie.
