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.

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

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.

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.

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.
May 26, 2016
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.

Enormous goings on keep going on, and on, in "X-Men: Apocalypse," a collection of explosions, eruptions and conflagrations that suggests the implosion of a franchise.

The property is running on bald tires, and, for all its ear-splitting racket and lavish effects, "Apocalypse" is the barest of retreads.

I found myself loving this strange, straight-faced operetta that embraces everything from Gregorian chanting to East German punk to Flock of Seagulls

Those who have seen the previous "X-Men" movies will likely feel motivated to keep their run complete, and over 2 hours and 23 minutes, they mostly get their money's worth.

Mostly ... it's the same old story: Bad mutants versus good mutants, with the fate of us humans - mostly off-screen, disturbingly expendable - hanging in the balance.
May 26, 2016
Even the hardcore geeks who like to get their Comic-Con on might be feeling a little superhero fatigue right about now. Still. You owe it to yourself to see Quicksilver do his thing.

"X-Men: Apocalypse" isn't a catastrophe, but you may find it lacking.
May 26, 2016
At times, "Apocalypse" can be great fun, even if it doesn't know when to hand its car keys to a friend and ask to be taken home.
May 26, 2016
It feels flat, disjointed, with too many moving parts.
May 26, 2016
Don't believe the negative hype. Though sluggish and overlong, the ninth film in the franchise has some entertaining moments.
May 26, 2016
I liked it a lot.
