That is the best way to describe this movie. As a kid who grew up in the '90s you have to agree with me that the tv series, uncanny xmen is one of the most watched shows back then. And watching it on the big screen, being portrayed by real life people, is a kid's dream come true.
The story took off several years after the war against mutants started. Its the era into which mutants are being hunted down by Sentinels (yes they are there, all in its metal, ice and fire forms). If you have watched the tv series, you will know that only a few of the former xmen survived this era. They are the ones who is continually avoiding the sentinels. I dont want to go deeper on what happened on the movie. I will just outline it for you.
- New mutants: Quicksilver, Link, Bishop etc will be introduced in this movie
- Not everyone will be going back to the past as the poster and the title wants us to think.
- Havoc, together with Beast will be shown again in this movie.
- Quicksilver has a sister, who will later be known as Scarlet Witch. Their father, Magneto
- The past took place right several years after the first class
- Most of the mutants that we loved will be in this installment
- Many of them will die :D
- One thing i didnt understand: How did Professor X and Magneto appeared in the future, if in Xmen 3, one died and the other lost its power. (I hope someone can explain this to me XD )
- There is an after credits scene. Wait until everything finishes.
Ok thats enough for now. You just have to watch the movie to grasp how awesome they were able to make this movie. I think its by far the best movie of this installment. In terms of the actors, the acting, special effects, and story line is amazing. Those who will say that its not that good, have their expectations so high. Dont expect anything from this movie, and you will surely enjoy it.
