Ranking The X-Men Movies

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past


From FFlashback – X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014):

“Surely the second best mainline X-Men film ever, Days of Future Past remains a greatly entertaining film and a real treat for dedicated viewers of the franchise. In one way, it wraps up hanging plot threads so that it could be a blazing finale to the series. In another, it reboots the continuity in a genius and seamless way to ensure more installments are possible.
Apocalypse had a hard time following this…”


– 1. Logan


From Logan – Spoiler-Free Review:

“Logan is a complete triumph – a beautiful blend of grit and emotion that is closer to a western than it is a traditional superhero movie… Hopefully Logan will remind the studios that what we most want from a movie is an involving, character-driven story. It will be interesting to see if the acclaim surrounding the film survives with age but it is clear that Logan is the perfect farewell for what must be one of the most iconic movie heroes ever. So long, Logan. You did good.”


– 1. X2: X-Men United


From FFlashback: X-Men 2 (2003):

“The biggest problem with the weaker X-Men films is that they don’t manage to effectively balance the ensemble of characters – often everyone else has to make way for Logan. In X-Men 2, however, all the characters get a decent crack at the whip. Yes, Wolverine is still at the centre of the story and he is still the most interesting, but his teammates play a significant role. If only the following film had learnt from this one’s successes…”

  1. It’s hard for me to accurately comment as I never saw The Wolverine and haven’t seen Logan… Yet. But X-Men Apocalypse was the absolute worse to me, I had such high expectations because X-men Days of Future past was so good. I’d put X-Men 2 number 1 then, Days and Future Past, First Class, and Deadpool. I need to see those 2 so I can form an accurate ranking. Thanks for the post.
