X-Men: Days of Future Past - A Film Review

I saw X-Men: Days of Future Past over the summer. I can say it is one of the best movies I've seen all year. The storyline was multi-layered and fascinating, written with intelligence and respect for the characters, and some ingeniously choreographed scenes. Not even just fight scenes, just brilliant character scenes. The standouts in the cast, in my opinion, were James McAvoy, for his emotionally wrought portrayal of young Charles Xavier going through a character arc that needs to be seen. And Evan Peters, who I've been noticing for his versatility in American Horror Story and other small film roles, was fantastic as Quicksilver, so much fun to watch. Bryan Singer did this movie justice, and I highly recommend it.
