‘X-Men’ has a blast in the past

Leave it to the X-Men to put the fun back in summer blockbusters.

Hugh Jackman, in the role he was coiffed to play, and the rest of the crew from pretty much every film in this past, present and future franchise, deliver the action and the laughs in “Days of Future Past,” an all-star/all-X-Men outing designed to transition from the aging first generation cast into their younger selves. It’s too long and so cluttered with characters and exposition that if you aren’t a fan of the comics, you may feel you’re being punished. But it delivers the 3-D thrills and the Wolverine (and Quicksilver) giggles, and how.
