Director: Bryan Singer

Synopsis: The war between humans and genetic mutated humans with superhero like abilities, is drawing to a close.  Strange, powerful automated creatures are hunting mutants and those who try to help them.  The leader of the X-Men, Charles Xavier, must do something to save the mutants.  He meets up with a group of mutants who have been using time travel to keep themselves one step ahead of their hunters.  A plan is hatched to send Wolverine, a mutant with regeneration and an attitude back in time to change the course of history and a stop the war from getting started.  He especially must stop the creation of the automatons.  Wolverine has to convince the the young Charles and Magneto, his enemy and friend, to work together and save them all.

Review: This movie is very interesting for me to watch because I loved the original X-Men movies.  In this movie, many of the characters behave far from their norm.  Wolverine must convince a young Magneto and Professor Xavier to work together and the dialogue between those three is amazing.  They are constantly fighting and its hard to see their future, calm and collected selves in the selfish young men.  It was great to see all the character development and all the tie ins with the older X-Men movies.  A first time viewer would be hooked into the series because of just how thought out the movie is.  It is relatable and action packed just as we have come to expect from marvel movies.  I am looking forward to seeing where this new series goes.
