"X-Men Apocalypse" by Yojimbo

An ancient mutant is revived and enlists the aid of Magneto and three other powerful individuals to reshape the world in his own image. X-Men Apocalypse is a new X-Men origin story which takes advantage of the time meddling of Days Of Future Past to essentially ignore many of the previous events of the franchise. Bryan Singer once again takes the helm and in one scene even openly mocks the weakest instalment The Last Stand, but he actually makes many of the same mistakes of that particular film. There are too many characters - many feeling pointless and dispensable, the set pieces are handled like a child playing with action figures rather than providing any emotion or drama and the relationships are superficial and poorly realised; in particular the flashbacks to the first film and Firs...

X-Men: Too Many Cooks

X-Men Apocalypse is the culmination of the "new" X-Men films that began with First Class then ramped things up with Days of Future Past. Apocalypse tries to one-up the previous film but in doing so I think it oversteps and gives us a lot of characters but not enough depth. Sure, you still have plenty of cool mutants and a lot of destruction but little of the heart and character that worked so well in the previous films.

Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) says it best when coming out of "Return of the Jedi" - "Well, at least we can all agree the third one's always the worst." Apocalypse has probably the best and darkest villain out of any of the X-Men films. Sure, he may look somewhat ridiculous in that getup, but Oscar Isasc is frightening. The "first mutant&...

Solid Fan-Service, Less Exciting Sequel

'X-Men: Apocalypse' is the disappointing followup to the immaculate 'Days of Future Past'. Being a lifelong X-Men fan, I tried to set modest expectations after the towering success of the previous film in the series. This sequel continues in the new timeline set forth from the events of 'DOFP', seeing the younger versions of our older characters first meet the younger iterations of our able heroes from the other films. The biggest positive right off the bat is the new youthful cast of actors. All of their representations of the characters were on-point. Much time in the first half is spent on their introduction. The drawback to this being that we only see them in action for the final showdown. A big chunk of the first half is also used to setup the new villain, Apocalypse. He has ...

X-Men: Good enough but faulty

I've really got to turn off my mind sometimes and suspend thought. This is supposed to be a highly tense, energetic, action movie. For the most part it succeeds, except in the many many times where it is full of cliched dialogue and characters. I found myself practically muttering the next phrase a couple of times it was so predictably obvious.
Jennifer Lawrence will the get the brunt of the lot of hate only because she is so prominently featured, but it is really unwarranted against her. I was REALLY happy to see Nightcrawler, and they wrote his character and actions up to my very high standards.
The sequence of Quicksilver got the most audience reaction, but this attempt was so much more obvious as computer driven than the fantastic scene from Days of Future past that it felt trif...

Apocalypse - Movie Review

Apocalypse: "You follow blind leaders."

While X-Men: Apocalypse isn't quite as strong as 'Days of Future Past', with the storytelling and it's twist & turns, but it's still a solid entry in the saga. I have to admit, I was surprisingly entertained with this movie which I didn't expect going in, since I wasn't expecting much with this movie. I had more fun with this than 'Civil War', and yes, I just said that and I'm not taking it back. The movie has it's flaws but at least I never bored watching the movie.

James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner and all of the other supporting cast were all great in their roles. I felt the emotion, the depth and the unexpected humor from the characters. Now when I think about it, all of the X-men characters in thi...
