I enjoyed Warpath's brief scenes in X-Men: Days of Future Past. He was cool to watch in action even if there was no room for character development in such an overstuffed film. I liked the movie as a whole quite a bit, especially the last several scenes. I had one major nitpick though - and it has to do with the scene everyone seems to be talking about as the highlight of the film. (Spoilers ahead) The Quicksilver scene where he saves Wolverine, Beast and Magneto from the authorities' bullets was indeed very cool and a blast to watch, but I feel that it just made the character way too powerful - if he had that kind of control over his speed why on Earth didn't Wolverine and friends take him with them to stop Mystique? He could have solved all of their problems in a split second, and it made no sense to me that they said goodbye to him after the Magneto breakout.
