10 PM CST tomorrow. I cant wait.May 21, 2014 at 11:02 pm #106977
^My brother and I already have our tickets for tomorrow’s 10pm showing as well. I’m crazy excited. More than I was for ‘The Avengers’ even.May 22, 2014 at 5:19 am #106978
Saw the midnight showing last night (well technically this morning) and it’s very good. Definitely a massive step in the right direction for superhero movies. The cast are brilliant; but it’s mostly McAvoy, Lawrence, Fassbender, Jackman and Hoult. Which could be expected I suppose. Evan Peters I thought was brilliant as Quicksilver, even if he was a gratuitous character. Ellen Page out of all the old X-Men has the biggest part besides Jackman, which is good for her. Won’t spoil anything but definitely worth the watch. And stay to the very end 🙂May 22, 2014 at 10:04 am #106979
The dialogues sounded a bit silly to me quite a few times, but since I had to see a dubbed version, I’ll give the movie the benefit of the doubt on that front. There’s a good chance that the lines sounded better in English and/or the actors delivered them with more conviction. Even then by blockbuster action movie standards the script was okay, and sometimes even pretty good. The cast was also utilized well, truthfully most of the sequences didn’t require much of them, but the main actors still got their moments to shine here and there.
Overall this is definitely the second summer blockbuster I’d recommend after Captain America, but I liked the two for very different reasons.May 22, 2014 at 11:22 am #106980
The only “Negative” its more mixed review from a major critic so far is from Amy Nicholson who says there is too much exposition, but not enough in her review. It’s a bit of a double talk and she gives it a C+.
I think this is Kinberg’s strongest script for the sake that it blends the humor with the dark aspects of the story perfectly.May 22, 2014 at 3:36 pm #106981
I’M READY! I’m gonna attempt to see a midnight showing. My first ever!

Enjoyable and such a wild ride. I’ll be seeing this again.May 23, 2014 at 1:13 am #106983
I too will be seeing it again on the big screen as there was so much I loved about this one. I can safely say that this is my favorite ‘X-Men’ film thus far. And the ending?! PERFECT. I was thrilled.May 23, 2014 at 1:51 am #106984
I hope it will be able to finish around 300MMay 23, 2014 at 5:12 am #106985
The post credit scene is great! Over all the movie is very good. Though not as good as Captain AmericaMay 23, 2014 at 11:18 am #106986
This has a 75 on Metacritic with 41 reviews. Highest rating a superhero film has gotten since The Dark Knight Rises (with a 78).May 23, 2014 at 11:26 am #106987
Encouraging news all ’round! I’m planning on going this weekend. I’m already a fan of the series so I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy it.
