A decade ago, when moviegoers were jumping back and forth between X-Men, Spider-Man and Fantastic Four films – before Marvel Studios even existed as a self-financed production house – Marvel Comics fans were eagerly awaiting the chance to see the towering Sentinel robots from the X-Men books appear on screen. These lethal, mechanical beasts are a nightmare for mutantkind, designed with the sole purpose of tracking, capturing and/or killing mutants globally – they are the frightening symbol of anti-mutant hysteria.

Since anti-mutant sentiment has been a running theme through the entirety of the X-Men film franchise, it’s shocking that it’s taken seven movies to finally see them in action on screen – not counting the Danger Room cameo of a Sentinel’s busted head appearing in the intro of X-Men: The Last Stand.
