Simply Perfect


Redundant and unnecessary.


Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .


There are better movies of two hours length. I loved the actress'performance.

This movie is astoundingly terrible. The first 45 minutes of the film feel like bad long exposition and yet nothing really happens, a mutant appears in some random scene and they are recruited by either Apocalypse or the X-Men. The writing is all over the place and we don't get to know the characters, they're simply put there.Because Bryan Singer is in love wit Stryker of course we get to see the Weapon X program (again!) and of course, Wolverine because why not.As for the characters: Magneto barely does anything in the whole movie, Apocalypse is a one note villain, Xavier phoned it in and Jennifer Lawrence was NOT Mystique at all, as expected she played Raven Everdeen.Finally, the big battle comes and nothing really happened, the world is being destroyed and the governments sit quiet.

This was an enjoyable, entertaining movie with the strongest mutant you'll ever see. But the mutant I speak of looks different than the comic book version and Aushuwitz didn't look anything like that. Just on more thing and I guess I have to make this a spoiler review now, and that just took up some words as I always have to add more at the end just to post. Why in the world would Young Professor X let an FBI agent into cerebro and explain how it works. If the government got him and forced him to use it they would probably kill every single one in the world. Why take chance? There u go writers, just think more before u write movies please.

I can get over the occasionally bad CGI, the action scenes where characters throws stuff to each other or throws each other against some stuff, or the music that I can't remember, or the one dimensional villain (I don't have problem with Oscar Isaac's acting, but the writing), or the four horseman who are also one dimensional and join to Apocalypse because they got cool power boosts and stuff, but I can't get over the fact that this movie is the same like the previous 5 main X-Men movies just worst (except Last Stand)! Professor X and Magneto are friends but they're on the opposite sides, but then they're join forces again to beat the big bad guy. There's the emotional struggles, but they're not hit as much as in the previous two movies. I'm not so much the fan of the Wolverine scene, the Jean Grey stuff at the end was good, but it only hit when you find out he's in the movie, but then the next scenes just doesn't deliver. The things that saves this film for me, is the few callbacks, the acting of the young X-Men, and the Quicksilver running scene. That is crazy, and should have been in a movie that deserves it. The funniest thing is when the young X-Men watched Return of the Jedi and they acknowledge that always the third movie is the worst. So it questions: They're made it the worst of the trilogy intentionally? But then my question is: Why? It could have been the best X-Men movie! First Class is my favorite because it's first class in the presentation of what it wants to tell. But I don't get mad if they make a better movie! I still love the characters, just please challenge them more next time! And let Matthew Vaughn direct another X-Men movie!(I've watched it when it's premiered in my country. But for some reason it was in my mind in the last few days. So this is why I wrote this after two years :D)

'X-Men: Apocalypse' is the sixth X-Men film and the final piece in the second trilogy (2011-2016), fitting in after 'Days of Future Past' and before 'X-Men' (2000). Although the time travel of the previous film does leave a somewhat altered "reality", so it doesn't necessarily all fit together nicely. Plot's pretty simple - Apocalypse/En Sabah Nur (Isaac) is the first mutant, with the ability to collect other mutants' powers, and he's now been resurrected and wants to destroy the world so only the strong survive. Plenty of Nazi parallels, and they use Magneto (Fassbender) and his Jewish past to emphasize this.Some of the films like repeating the same territory, as they have to re-establish the "new" characters: Jean (Turner), Cyclops (Sheridan), Havoc (Till), Nightcrawler (Smit-McPhee) and how they fit in with Xavier (McAvoy) and his school. I guess after the other two films, they needed Mystique (Lawrence), but I'm not sure why she needs to play such a big part. And Beast (Hoult) is mostly wasted, along with Apocalypse's Horsemen - Storm (Shipp), Psylocke (Munn) & Angel (Hardy). Some great CGI and large-scale chaos shown, but also some nice soft-touch moments, particularly between Charles & Erik - something Singer did well in the original film. One of the best bits is near the end when they almost verbatim repeat something from the 2000 film - and there's another nice tongue-in-cheek moment when they come out of seeing 'Return of the Jedi' (forgot to mention the film's set in 1983!)I loved Metallica's 'The Four Horsemen' playing when Apocalypse turns Angel into the metal-winged Archangel, worked great for the scene. Quicksilver (Peters) - despite being dead in the 'Avengers' films and only 10 years younger than Fassbender - is a very welcome addition here and has some great moments, particularly the Eurythmics bit. It doesn't follow any particular comic storyline completely, but borrows from a few, with only a few nods to the 1990s 'Age of Apocalypse'. Magneto's motivation could've been better, for me, but the scenes he and Xavier are in are always good. Issac is menacing but not too over-the-top as Apocalypse, but somehow, even with the world (slowly!) crumbling, it doesn't all click quite as well as you feel it could. Definitely a worthy addition to the franchise, but still a shame they never reached the pinnacle set by the original X-Men film.
