About 50 or so years in the future, Sentinals were killing not only killing mutants, but they were killing humans as well. With only a few mutants left to fight the Sentinal war, they have to find a way to stop them. The Sentinals are absolutly unstopable. Kitty Pride sends Wolverine back to the early 70's to stop Mystique from trying to kill Boliver Trask, the man whom created the Sentinals. First Wolverine has to track down Charles Xavier and convince him to help find Erik and Mystique. If Mystique is caught then Boliver Trask can use her DNA to make a powerful robot.
Since the third installment of the X-Men movie completely almost destroyed the entire series, they had to come up with a way to redeem themselves with going back in the future to rewrite the story. They killed off some of the main characters in the third, but they are back in this movie to continue the movies, or at least be able to make one more movie.
In this what will probably be the last of the X-Men movies, we finally get to see the Sentinals in a movie. The Sentinals were such a big part in the comic books, cartoons and even the video games. When the movie started, I hated how the Sentinals looked. They looked like giant horned demons. It was pretty crappy, but as you get into the movie you get to see how they started which was pretty close to how they have appeared in other media formats. The story line worked well for the movie.
The movie mainly spotlighted Wolverine over all of the other characters. It was almost like Wolverine 3 with added X-Men to fill in the gaps. I know Wolverine has become the most sought out character of all of the X-Men so far, there were so many more added to this movie that only got a speck of scene time.
Here goes the list: Wolverine, Charles Xavier, Magneto, Mystique, Beast, Iceman, Storm, Rogue, Kitty Prude, Bishop, Quicksilver, Colossus, Blink, Sunspot, Warpath, Jean Gray, Havok, Toad, Cyclops, and a few other that are just shown for a split sec.
All of these characters in one movie with so little time in the movie. Most of them could have been omitted completely and the story line would not have changed a bit. Most of the movie dealt with the past, so you get a combination of the X-Men from the other movies and characters from First Class. I would have liked it more if some of the other characters would have been featured more, but sadly they were only in the movie for a few minutes.
Don't get me wrong, I really did like the movie. The story was great and the action scenes were top notch. It just should have been longer, and that is saying something. This is a movie to own. Enjoy.
