X-Men: Apocalypse Reviews
February 10, 2021
It wasn't terrible, and I don't think it entirely deserves its dismal 47 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But it should serve as a wake-up call regarding the franchise's future direction.

Transcends the law of diminishing rewards by upping the action.

All of the characters in this movie had really good personality.

I really think they do a good job of making it silly and schlocky and serious and fun and action-packed.

...the parts that director Bryan Singer gets right-be they heart-wrenching flashbacks or mind-blowing visuals-are what really saves the day.

This is an entry in the mutant saga that grows better with successive viewings and even manages to sneak some under the radar performances that stand out. If you remember disliking this movie, I highly suggest you give it another go.

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?

X-Men: Apocalypse may not be the satisfying third film in the series that one would like but it certainly does the job...

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.

...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.

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.

"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.

If you are not a fan, you might still enjoy it, but the long run-time pushes the envelope of your attention skills.

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.

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.

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.

Apocalypse proceeds so confidently that you feel assured that it all fits together and makes perfect sense, even if you're not getting it in the instant.

Oscar Isaac has no time for dance numbers in this one

Despite the long run time and obvious filler, this is a wholly entertaining blockbuster of superhero magnitude.
