I would say let some time go by .... I don't want spoilers but I'm not rushing out to see the film either. Though it would give me something to do today. LOL

And I'm not surprised by your comments. It has had nothing that for me was appealing while some trailers looked good. Nothing that made me think, oh wow, I gotta go see this. TBH - too much Mystique.

Yeah, she's been a detraction for me. Too much focus on her character.

I'm actually giving this film a miss! With the quality of superhero movies right now I just can't handle Singer.  And the teenage cast just don't do it for me. It was handled okay in first class but this doesn't appeal to me. 

And yes, Mystique being the main character bothers me. My dislike of Jennifer Lawrence is a factor too.

Why does everyone here have it in for JLaw?

Because she's overrated and annoying?

Okay that's a bit harsh. I'll say that I did used to like her. But over time she's started grating on me. Too much of a relatively good thing I guess?

If I understood your post correctly, you're saying you think she's overexposed? That definitely can make you resent an actor.

Yes, I think she's over exposed as well. Certainly the Hunger Games films didn't help with that, even though they're successful. It's too much JLaw in a shorten time period.

I'm certain I'm in a minority but the Hunger Games is not all that great either.

I also think Fox tried capitalizing on her star power for the film when Mystique was never that pivotal in the Xmen.

I have seen the movie twice now. Not to spoil it, but the movie was ok.
I suspect that most people find the movie bad because they had too much action scenes in the movie and very little character story/development, also people seems to feed up with JLaw
The Fox version of Poccy is starting to grow on me, they could have done it better, but he's not that bad

i think the biggest problem for me is that this is just one giant trailer for the next one, theres lots of stuff thats like oh this is going to happen but not in this movie wait for the next one, the young x-men i felt had good development and didn't waste any screen time, the Horsemen were wasted and two of them utterly pointless, lots of acton was good the special effects were not that good same can be said for most comicbook films this year and in previous years, the end credits scene filled me with dread more so than excitement, goddamn corp, you will all know what i mean when you see it

That's what I believe as well. I do think it was handled well in DOFP, though.

Thanks God Gambit wasn't a part of this movie.
It is a garbage movie with some good Quicksilver and Magneto moments.

I liked first 30 minutes but after mansion scene  this movie became so dull and bad.
There were nothing special in fights.

I hope Gambit solo will be in future with Deadpool. I don't want more movies with X kids.
