In terms of the Rogue Cut itself, what we have is a film that - at 17 minutes longer - breathes just a little bit more. The direness of the future is expanded upon with additional dialogue, an emotional scene between Raven and Hank (who only had an occasional glance in the theatrical version) gives us more development into their characters, and a last-attempt rescue brings Rogue in to help focus Wolverine in the past when he most needs it. Bringing Rogue into the film was unnecessary, but the way the sequence is cut together - with Old Magneto breaking into the mansion to rescue Rogue while Young Magneto breaks into the pentagon - is beautifully shot and edited. We also get more suspense and action which was missing coming into the climax of the original.
When it comes to supplemental material, this version far surpasses that which was found on the original. Two separate commentaries (for both versions) are provided, which were not found on the original. And few bland making-of featurettes from the original have been replace with a 90-minute 9-part documentary. The gag reel from the first is missing, though it wasn't very interesting the first time around. And to round it off, there is also a sneak preview of the upcoming F4.
If you already have the first BluRay, or you don't consider yourself to be a hardcore Superhero Film/X-Men fan, you're probably fine sticking with last year's release. If however, you waited or want a more complete version of the film, the Rogue Cut does not disappoint.
My Blu-ray came in great condition, and exactly as shown in the listing, no slipcover/O-Ring. My digital copy has an expiration date of 07/14/18. Overall, I'm pleased with this version and Blu-ray of the film.
About the film itself, it was the best of the most recent trilogy, in my humble opinion. The acting felt more natural, not to mention that there was a larger cast of characters that neither felt over or under whelming to the plot. The plot itself was definitely a cliches time travel, save someone from commuting a grave mistake, but made its own way through, feeling fresh. It was a different take on the comic version, so fans be warned, but this version specifically paid tribute to the elements from that now iconic comic.
There are a few things that occur in the Rogue Cut that don't really make sense or seem out of place (Mystique + Beast scene at the mansion) and the way that Rogue has been missing yet they just decide that today is a good day to rescue her based on random facts that Bobby (Iceman) seems to have knowledge of and yet no one else knew. Basically Rogue is shoehorned into the scenes with no shock or amazement at where she was or how she is back in the game. Suspension of disbelief perhaps.
Also, the audio format for the Rogue Cut is a forced 7.1 as 5.1 is not available which made no sense to me. The talking at the start of the movie just seems really low volume but I don't know if the theatrical release was the same way. I haven't had a chance to compare the two.
X:Men: Days of Future Past is a great movie but it is not without it's flaws, most notably due to Xavier's existence prior to the timeline being changed from X:Men: The Last Stand. There was not nearly enough action from the future where the pre-existing X-Men characters from past movies are, but that may be preference to some.
Make sure you watch (fast forward) the complete credits at the end of the movie to see the En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse) teaser for the next movie, X:Men: Apocalypse.
