X-Men: Days Of Future Past: First Reviews Are In

Its a busy time for X-Men fans. With the release of the highly anticipated next installment of the series, “Days Of Future Past,” only two weeks away, the film’s promotional machine is in full swing. On top of the cast’s appearance on Good Morning America and Hugh Jackman’s turn interviewing himself, early reviews have started to surface and response to the film is looking overwhelmingly positive.

Critics took to social media late last night with their responses following the first screening. Fox5 film critic Kevin McCarthy, in particular, was exuberant in his praise for the film.

Fans who expressed doubts about the character Quicksilver also apparently have little to worry about, as McCarthy hinted that the new addition plays an intense role in “Days Of Future Past.”

McCarthy wasn’t alone in his sentiments either, as others who were in attendance tweeted that Quicksilver was an unexpected highlight of this particular installment in the X-Men franchise.

Still others were simply content to express their enthusiasm for the film. Steven Weintraub of collider.com tweeted his advice for fans, revealing to them that a Marvel movie tradition is alive and well with the X-Men:

Will “Days Of Future Past” prove to be the “best X-Men movie ever“? Only time will tell, but if early responses are any indication, fans have a great deal to look forward to over the next two weeks.
