Sci-fi/fantasy fans with only a passing knowledge of the X-Men universe will still be drawn into this exciting, fast-paced tale of time travel, which sends Professor Xavier’s band of merry men (and women) back to the groovy ‘70s to stop the robotic Sentinels from becoming a holy terror to the world’s mutants. Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, starring as the younger Magneto and Prof. X, respectively, provide solid acting, and Jennifer Lawrence gives the normally tough Mystique surprising vulnerability. Oh, and the action scenes. Yes, they’re pretty darn gratifying. This addition to the franchise has gotten better reviews than some of the its more recent predecessors, so director Bryan Singer is on a roll to make next year’s installment (X-Men: Apocalypse) great. Here’s hoping it compares favorable to this film. Check Our Catalog
