X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2014 - ★★★

This gets off to a terrible start and all the future scenes are a horrible chaotic rushed mess of nonsense, no character and effects (only Blink's portals are of any interest). Fortunately once we step back in time things get back on track (even though this film seems to undo all the setup of First Class) and hold together for most of the film. It's a shame that a lot of the final third depends on an contrived plot point involving railway tracks that just doesn't make any sense (even in a world of mutants).

A disappointing sequel to First Class that may have been better if it had stayed in the past.
