If there's one characteristic that sets the X-Men franchise apart from the MCU, its how rarely the films remain true to the comics, both in their storylines and characters.

The film, although entertaining, did not live up to his previous efforts. The unbalance within the film was the most glaring issue.

Glowering under buckets of gloppy blue makeup, Isaac doesn't seem to be playing a godlike figure capable of destroying the world as much as the sort of grumpy uncle who always complains at barbecues that there's not enough mayonnaise in the cole slaw.

Its faults reek of laziness and negligence. There is so much untapped potential.

The special effects are fast, frequent, and generally overwhelming; they look stunning, for the most part, but their sheen wears off when 99% of the imagery is CG.

I can't help but think it's a film that would disappoint Apocalypse. We all know what happens when Apocalypse gets disappointed.

Singer directed the pretty okay X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2014. Now he's returned with X-Men: Apocalypse, and it almost seems like he's trying to destroy the genre that he helped create.

Feels like a warmed-over version of what worked better 16 years ago.

The end result is a fun though chronologically and visually chaotic instalment, which fails to match the brilliance of Singer's previous features.

It's definitely the weakest of the latest trilogy of "X-Men" movies (2011's "First Class" and 2014's "Days of Future Past"). Unless you're Michael Fassbender or James McAvoy, big talent is pretty squandered in the film.

It's a blockbuster that's also a head scratcher.

This outing just had no heart, no zing -- the story both dull and derivative.

There are no flashbacks that show their origin or clarify their motivations, there is no evolution, Apocalypse is a flat and boring villain, with bad dialogue and a Power Rangers' characterization. [Full Review in Spanish]

...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.

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

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.
Apr 3, 2019
Apocalypse is so desperate to get your attention it forgets to earn it.

A nauseatingly predictable film that is genuinely dull to watch.

Lacks focus or purpose with some really jarringly violent moments that stretch the boundaries of its PG-13 rating.
