Despite appearing emotionally and thematically hollow compared to the overwrought subtexts of previous entries, Apocalypse has managed to incorporate weighty themes of outsiderdom in an uncharacteristically subtle manner.
"X-Men: Apocalypse" lacks a thorough emotional investment in the apocalyptic events happening in the film and the villain is underwhelming, but the new mutants and some of the action prove to be enough to redeem some of the downsides.
This fabulous cast is a little more than director Bryan Singer really knows what to do with. And that's the problem with X-Men: Apocalypse. It's just too much. The plot is overstuffed, the CGI is relentless, and the action is overwhelming.
