X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse

Filmmaker Bryan Singer follows up his X-Men, X-Men 2 and Days of Future Past (as well as Matthew Vaughn’s First Class) with this all-encompassing entry to the Marvel mutant superhero franchise.

Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible - worshipped as a god. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world and recruits a team of mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind.

Although the X-Men ensembles are usually large, there are simply too many characters for the action-heavy “Apocalypse” to properly juggle.

The biggest X-Men movie yet doesn’t scrimp on carnage, but lacks the heft of Singer’s previous instalments.

There are no memorable action scenes... And the script is just nonsense...

Certainly provides bangs for your buck, although there is less space for the surreal strangeness of the X-Men to breathe, less dialogue interest, and they do not have the looser, wittier joy of the Avengers...

It lacks the swagger and ingenuity of Deadpool, or the gravitas and allegory potential of Captain America: Civil War, or even the last two X-outings.

Messier and heavier than Days Of Future Past, this is not so much the next step in the X-Men’s evolution as a failed callback to past glories.

With plenty of action and a cliched plot, it diverts from the overall theme and disconnects its characters.

Probably the worst of Singer's X Men attempts, like in the case of Civil War, feels like the bridge between the last films and the next. Great introduction of Sophie Turner's Jean Grey and another brilliant Quicksilver scene made up for a story that is building but didn't go too far in this edition. Still worth a watch.

I enjoyed this film, I wish I could give it another half star because I feel it should sit around 7/10. It had amazing action sequences and the direction was good for the most part. The villain was good and I was a little worried going in but Isaac who is fast becoming a big time movie star did a good job portraying this god like figure.The ending I was a...

While not as spot on as X-Men: Days Of Future Past, X-Men:Apocalypse is first rate popcorn. If you're not familiar with the comics a whole raft of elements become irrelevant. Just enjoy the good acting and the good punch ups. For my money, they didn't make much use of the formidable acting prowess of Jennifer Lawrence, but that's what you get with...

I'm not with the critics this time. X-Men: Apocalypse is a damn good movie. Not as good as Days of Future Past or the first two X-Men movies, but very entertaining. Nightcrawler was cool. Quicksilver has another amazing sequence. There's also a great cameo (not Stan Lee, another mutant). Apocalypse isn't terrible, but he didn't leave much of an impression...

while it adds nothing to the xmen universe, xmen fans will love the movie,ps wait for the end credits to finish, what you see links into the new wolverine to be released early in 2017 :)

I had high hopes for X-Men Apocalypse having enjoyed the previous two instalments, but I found the thing a bit too meh. JLaw was underwhelming she was just playing Katniss without the bow. The real standouts are the supporting cast Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Olivia Munn which surprised me with such strong leads. Movie was way to long at 2 hours 24 minutes...

Continuing from a rejuvenated franchise,thanks to Days of Future Past, X-Men Apocalypse enters the fray as the latest installment of the X-Men. However in a year filled with Superhero movies, can Bryan Singer fight the so called Superhero fatigue and deliver another refreshing take on the X-Men? The X-Men has a new foe as En Sabah Nur or Apocalypse wakes...

Apocalypse proves it cannot live up to the strength of the story and direction of the first two. I cannot fault the acting of the two male leads McAvoy and Fassbender, who continue to engage. Kodi Smit-McPhee also proves to be a highlight as Nightcrawler, and made me think back to Alan Cummings excellent portrayal in X2. However once again in a superhero...
