Movie: X-Men Days of future past

I watched it in 3D, but there were very few scenes for which 3D effects were value add. The movie experience could have been equally good, if I had watched it in 2D. Special effects, story, mutant characters and their special powers, all is well in the movie but I expected more. I watched it to see some mind blowing action scenes of Hugh Jackman like in the last movie of this series The Wolverine (2013). In fact, X-Men First Class (2011) was also a brilliant movie with brilliant script. This movie lacks the good script and mind boggling action scenes.
The story is something like this. All the bad mutants lead by magneto (Michael Fassbender) and good mutants lead by professor (James McAvoy) are united against humans to save their race. In the future they will be destroyed if they couldn’t change one incident which took place in past, due to Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence). To change that incident, they send Logan (Hugh Jackman) back in the past. Older professor (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian Mckellen) are guiding the younger generation of mutants in this whole battle. The first half of the movie is about uniting younger professor and Magneto to stop Raven. In the second half there are good twists and turns which keeps the interest level of audience high. Climax is full of bigger special effects and bigger drama. Logan’s role is very limited and I expected definitely much more from him. Director Bryan Singer has done brilliant job in doing justice to most of the characters of story.
All the actors have done exceptionally well in their roles and have lived their characters. It is a difficult genre to make it believable for audience, but the performances of all the actors has made it possible. There are few really funny scenes in movie, which are perfectly timed to lighten the audiences mind. Other than Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, there is a big gang of old and newbies in the movie, which includes Halle Barry, Nicholas Hault, Ellen Page and others. But their roles length is very small.
Overall, this is a must watch movie for all the sci-fi and fantasy movie lovers.
