5.0 out of 5 stars Anyone giving this a one star is out of their mind, May 27, 2014
By 
This review is from: X-Men: Days of Future Past Amazon Exclusive [Blu-ray + Exclusive] (Blu-ray)
There are always going to be critics. Mother Theresa had her critics. Some argue the Godfather was a terrible film. Anything amazing will always have it's fair share of critics who belittle something simply for the purpose of contradicting the status quo.

For the sane and intelligent fans out there, this is the best X-Men film out of all of them. It is the best acted and the story line is the best written. It also reboots the franchise but does so in a tactful and comprehensible manner.

What I really enjoyed about the film is that there is not too much mindless action. The dialogue is well written. The pacing of the film is on point. And the film focuses on character development while still including enough action for it to be enjoyable. I'm glad we didn't see 20 minute scenes of the X-Men just fighting Sentinels all movie long in some mindless action.

It's equally insane to give it 5 stars.
In reality it deserves maybe 3.5.
4 would be generous but also acceptable.

You would have a point except for the fact that it achieved a 92% Rotten Tomatoes critic's score and is arguably the best X-Men movie let alone Marvel produced film.

It was expected to pull in 125 million on it's opening (3 day) weekend. It only pulled 111 million. Still good but did not meet or exceed expected goals. Unlike both Capt America TWS and Godzilla Which not just exceeded but destroyed box office records.

Nice review. It certainly did deserve 5 stars. I really enjoyed this movie and Singer did a fabulous job as usual!

I really loved the movie (5 stars), but personally I don't think there would have been anything wrong with just one more X-Men fighting the Sentinels scene towards the middle of the movie.

Every X-Men film if a five star films... the first time you see it. Repeat viewings tend to curb the enthusiasm.
