I rather liked it, as movies go.
Lots of funny moments, like with Wolverine and the metal detector, or “My mum used to know a guy who could control metal”. And the bit where Star Trek was playing in the background, I liked that. Not sure which episode it was though… I think it was the one with Gary Seven in it. That would sort of make sense, with the time travel and alternate timelines and whatnot. Digressing somewhat now. Anyway.
It looked amazing. Very high production values, which really helped to sell it. The future dystopia stuff was great. Also really tense actually, because you sort of knew they were going to kill everyone. And kill them all really violently. It was almost distressing.
Actors, all great. As expected. And some nice arcs for the 60s characters, that was pretty great. Charles breaking out of his depression to become Professor X was nice. Especially because it placed an emphasis on hope for the future. Hope is important in superhero movies I think. Crucial, even.
9/10, methinks. (But, like, 9.7/10. It was a good movie. I had very few qualms.)
