If you're keeping score at home, of the three Marvel comic-book movies so far this summer (a term I use advisedly for a season that technically doesn't start for another month), X-Men: Days of Future Past outranks Amazing Spider-Man 2 and is about on a par with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Where some of Boyle's kinetic, hyper-stylized music video camera approach in Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours felt a little out of place, it is perfect in Trance: a techno heist film. I'd almost call it a cyberpunk movie, as it feels plugged into some technological grid.
