It's basically a closing chapter to a feeble trilogy that started out pretty well and then ran out of gas, and now must serve as a prequel to shadowy X-related endeavors yet to come.

Some of the franchise stalwarts, such as Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique, are given too little to do. Most are given too much.

Without a compelling villain, it's hard to resist feeling like it's just more of the (mutated) same.

Comic fans will be mystified. Movie fans will be confused. Everyone will leave disappointed.

There's no spark, and everyone lumbers through the motions. The apocalypse, it turns out, is deadly dull.

Enough already. Singer throws so much mutant at us that nothing sticks. I was almost rooting for Trump to impose a quota.

...that quirky ambition is all but vacant, leaving an underwhelming run of the mill actioner audiences might have settled for in 2003. There are too many films in this hyper specific subgenre being released every year to rest on laurels like this.

There are some issues, even forgiving a loose plot that doesn't do much character work. I mean, I've read the comics, and I still don't understand what Apocalypse's powers are. He can...dissolve stuff? Make people get swallowed into walls? Who knows?

"Everyone knows the third one is always the worst," a young Jean Grey ironically reports. X-Men: Apocalypse proves Jean Grey's point.

X-Men: Apocalypse may not be the satisfying third film in the series that one would like but it certainly does the job...
April 19, 2019
It doesn't tell us or show us anything new - it doesn't bring anything to the franchise.

The biggest problem with X-Men Apocalypse is that it is completely fragmented.
April 3, 2019
Apocalypse is so desperate to get your attention it forgets to earn it.
February 19, 2019
This offering is big and chaotic and definitely succumbs a bit to the law of diminishing returns, but it is certainly a damn sight better than The Last Stand.
January 30, 2019
A nauseatingly predictable film that is genuinely dull to watch.
January 17, 2019
...if you aren't an X-Men fan, watch it for the excellent VFX and for some good laughs. Either way, missing this is a big mistake.
January 15, 2019
Lacks focus or purpose with some really jarringly violent moments that stretch the boundaries of its PG-13 rating.
January 9, 2019
The real problem with Apocalypse is that it feels like two separate films. (...) The result is jarring on both an emotional and a cognitive level
November 19, 2018
For such an iconic villain to be neutered down is disappointing.
November 7, 2018
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.
