The set-up is sometimes quite intriguing. Especially when it features Michael Fassbender as Magneto (massively magnetic).

Compared to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (a convoluted snore) or Captain America: Civil War (bombastic and contrived) X-Men: Apocalypse is the one that's worth the price of admission.

I still liked his latest X-Men effort quite a bit, flaws and all, the aspirations fueling it almost as super as they are heroic.

Time for X to take some zzzz, perhaps.

The X-Men franchise gets bigger with Apocalypse, which brings the mutants face-to-face with the end of the world ... but the story lacks any danger.

At almost two-and-a-half hours, in spite of collapsing cities, new characters and a Wolverine cameo, X-Men: Apocalypse offers so little over such a long running time.

Arguably, no one knows the 'X-Men' saga like Bryan Singer and his stalwart production team, which is evident when playing with characters and timelines, as they've done in the past, and do so expertly here.

This is one of the big dangers for the extended franchise model of filmmaking -- that characters and series will be kept alive not because there's a story to tell, but because the franchise must be kept alive.

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.

Say what you will about 'Apocalypse,' it's hard to know what damn fool thing Singer's gonna do next. See enough of these movies, and you start to value that quality.

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

'X-Men: Apocalypse' gives 'X-Men: The Last Stand' a run for its money as the worst entry in the long-running franchise.

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.
May 27, 2016
Enough already. Singer throws so much mutant at us that nothing sticks. I was almost rooting for Trump to impose a quota.

The movie seems dull and bloated.
May 26, 2016
I love these conflicted misfits, even when they're fighting a supreme being who seems imported from a far inferior, less interesting world.
May 26, 2016
It's not the first deflating X-Men picture, but it's the first from director Bryan Singer, who now has four of these under his belt, including the original.

For every lively moment, there's a reminder that the franchise is tiring. The genre's emphasis on potential mass death is obsessive and unimaginative.
