X-Men: Apocalypse Reviews
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.

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.

Fiery, intense moments are undermined by a predictable plot.

The same old crash, bang, CGI-heavy mash-up, delivered at a ridiculously long length.

In the end, Apocalypse becomes just another bloated entry in a franchise that has established a certain bit of goodwill by accomplishing to become more than just irrelevant entertainment.

Ultimately, not the best film. Although it was better than X-Men: Last Stand. So they have that going for them.

With Professor Xavier reminding Magneto that there is good in him, a scene from the luminous First Class flashes, making you wish you were watching that one instead. This is strictly for the fans!

Apocalypse is hot garbage because no one had an idea for it beyond "We gotta crank another one of these out before Marvel reclaims the rights".

Apocalypse feels like it comes from the alternate timeline where Singe. . .reached into an uneven bag of overheated story bits and fished out a few great X-Men moments.

X-Men Apocalypse, for as big and dumb as it is, isn't much fun at all. Instead, the mutants' latest outing undercuts its occasional hints of heart and humor with an excessive runtime, self-serious story and, yes, a lot of big dumbness.

If this sixth instalment is not the apocalypse to the X-Men universe, then maybe it should be.

Days of Future Past was a doozy. Apocalypse... not so much.

Even the publicity geeks can't convincingly milk as exhausted a teat as X-Men.

Will Apocalypse destroy the world, or will he spend the entire second act battle-posed with his minions in the high deserts over Cairo monologuing to Professor X?

I can't say that I hated watching Apocalypse. It unreeled with the usual fury, but its playbook evolves over two-and-a-half hours without finding much that's inspired.

The lesson to take from X-Men: Apocalypse is for our artists and filmmakers is to throw off the shackles of convention, and be freed from the burden of conformity.

Slow, then bloated, and explodes with boredom, and will probably lull you to sleep before you even get to the end. I don't know where it went wrong since the director is the one who made the X-Men franchise super popular, but we all have our bad days.

Singer once brought an intimacy to the social political dimensions that often made the X-Men franchise the thinking man's superhero movie. Yet it is clear that the weight in the themes that come with ...Apocalypse has left Singer and his movie floundering.
