It's Wolverine ( Hugh Jackman ) to the rescue when the X-Men are perilously close to elimination by the indestructible Sentinel robots. In the dark dystopian future, all mutants are being targeted by Sentinels creator, Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage).
 
Based upon 1981s Uncanny X-Men No.141, Wolverine travels back in time to prevent the creation of Trask's Sentinels by altering history. The central focus is on the immortal Wolverine who links past and future throughout. Without this continuity the X-Men storyline could have been confusing for those unfamiliar with the franchise.
 

With awesome special effects coupled with strong performances by Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender the film is a 2 + hour  thrill ride. X-CELLENT defines the X-Men : Days Of Future Past.
