Blunt Reviews Presents: X-Men: Days of Future Past – Rogue Cut (2014)

This was interesting, because I liked the original theatrical cut of the film very much, so there wasn’t an awful lot I would change. That being said, I rather enjoyed this extended edition. It wasn’t groundbreaking, and it certainly didn’t change my experience of the film like many fans would have lead me to believe, but it did add several minutes of previously unseen footage that was intriguing. I wouldn’t say any of the new footage was essential, and I still prefer the original cut, but I’m glad I took the time to see what all the fuss was about.

    • In the original cut I believe Rogue features very briefly at the end when the timelines has been reset and the old characters return. The extended edition sees her involved for a further 17 minutes (roughly) which basically adds an addition to the story which involves her being rescued from the wreckage of Cerebro and then taking over Kitty’s duties when she is injured.

      • Oh, I see, thanks for letting me know! I was actually quite fond of Rogue character, she actually had a real struggle with her powers, and its effect on others. Would have liked to see something more on her and Iceman. I guess I have no other choice than to see this cut 🙂 But basically Rogue and her powers were wasted and underused in the movies, quite sad.. okay not gonna start a rant 🙂

      • I understand you’re frustration, she was always an interesting character but by the third film they turned her into a complete flake so we didn’t see any development. At least we can sit back in the comfort that the timeline has been reset so we might see so more of her in future films?
