The seventh installment in the series manages to involve an amazing number of supernatural characters in a plot that eventually climaxes into awe-inspiring events occurring in two different times. This two hour and 11 minute sci-fi/superhero action film reprises the roles of most main characters while squeezing in a few mutants not yet seen. For example, a main character’s relationship with one of the new characters named Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters (pay close attention to his dialogue as he’s watching television for a clue). Wolverine, well played again by Hugh Jackman, provides the conduit between the future (2023) and past (1973) worlds while leading an important mission involving Raven’s (aka Mystique), played by Jennifer Lawrence, targeting a military scientist/industrial tycoon named Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage. Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen again play the most prominent mutants, Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto (aka Eric Lehnsherr), respectively. Be sure to stay after the ending credits for an additional scene involving another Marvel film that will release on May 27, 2016. Recommended and rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi violence and action, some suggestive material, nudity and language.
