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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 29, 2019
A nauseatingly predictable film that is genuinely dull to watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 16, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: C
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 18, 2018
For such an iconic villain to be neutered down is disappointing.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 30, 2018
It will take a lot more than an apocalypse (or Apocalypse) to dull the shine or mute the energy of the world's most uncanny heroes.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
August 29, 2018
Arbitrary adherence to canon and the usual X-Men films' disregard for continuity make this hot mess one to skip.
August 27, 2018
Like all those Zack Snyder movies, Apocalypse is awash in property damage, filling the screen with ribbons of debris and collapsing buildings.
August 27, 2018
Bryan Singer seems like he listened to the reception of his last entry in the series, X-Men: Days of Future Past, as blithely and briefly as he could.
August 22, 2018
"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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 22, 2018
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.
August 22, 2018
If you are not a fan, you might still enjoy it, but the long run-time pushes the envelope of your attention skills.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 13, 2018
This is X-Men and you shouldn't expect to be blown away by both the plot and action, but you can fully expect a plot that works much better than the reports are stating.
May 22, 2018
Fiery, intense moments are undermined by a predictable plot.
April 23, 2018
The same old crash, bang, CGI-heavy mash-up, delivered at a ridiculously long length.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 26, 2018
With Singer again at the helm, Apocalypse maintains enough visual elegance and emotional credibility to preserve its status as the superhero series made by, and for, adults.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 26, 2018
If you're looking for standard summer movie action, this movie has it. It's like a Tiny Toons adventure version of the original X-Men films.
January 23, 2018
Ultimately, not the best film. Although it was better than X-Men: Last Stand. So they have that going for them.
