X-Men: Apocalypse 3D

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.

Xmen:Done

X-Men : Apocalypse The title sequence really reminded me of 'Mission Impossible' or 'Fast & Furious’ & gave a hint of the film ahead.

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.
