I haven't seen it yet, but my fear is that it will be a let-down. I love the Days of Future Past story-line in the comics, and have high expectations. I also think that the studio dropped the ball. This story-line could easily have been a 3-movie trilogy. Ditto the Age of Apocalypse. But the producers didn't have the vision for it. Instead, a more rushed story, in one film. That makes me uncomfortable. The one poor review I read in the press said it was on the same level as X-Men 3. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping I like it much more than that.

And Quicksilver? Love the comic character, but this version looks preposterous. The actor's hair is an absolute disaster.

Quick Silver steals the movie. He has one of the most creative scenes I've seen in a movie in a very long time.

"James told me there's an old saying here on Earth: May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
Not sure if Turian heaven is the same as yours, but if this thing goes sideways and we both end up there, meet me at the bar."

Legion: "They will exterminate your species because their gods tell them to. You cannot negotiate with them. They do not share your pity, remorse, or fear."
