X-Men: Apocalypse Reviews

  • 15h ago

    Apocalypse is a frustrating movie for me. On one hand, the action sequences are really well handled especially the final battle and the Wolverine and Quicksilver scene. They are very creative and very fun and there's some great worldbuilding in this movie with the origins of Apocalypse and combine that with colorful visuals, it's very interesting to see, everyone gives their A-Game performance-wise, it was awesome seeing a young Jean, Storm and Cyclops and this is by far the best Magneto. He's written so well here. On the other hand, Apocalypse is really poorly handled. He's basically just Ultron but with no screen presence, the first half of the movie is just set up for the final battle and just drags on and on and can be frustrating on rewatches and what happened to the nuclear missiles that were luanched and the plot is kind of disappointing for an X-Men movie, still having the thematic elements you expect but leans more to generic teritory way more than any X-Men movie. It's still a decent movie but could have been a lot better.

    Upon first watch I didn't like this movie because it didn't meet my expectation of who Apocalypse is based of the comics and cartoons. He's a large hulking intimidating powerful mutant and his horsemen and just as terrifying. I believe this is most people's reason to not like this movie. However when watching the movie back to back with X-men: Days of Future Past (the best of the entire film series), this movie is actually pretty good and holds to the characters pretty well. Apocalypse is even done pretty well when you get past the lack of stature and his voice. Apocalypse was one of the first mutants and the fact that he can transfer his essence from one mutant body to another, gaining the new mutant ability while retaining his other abilities and extending his lifespan, makes him a very interesting character. Basically that means this Apocalypse is not the final form of Apocalypse which is enjoyed in the comics and the cartoons.

    Not good. I am quite ashamed to say that this came right after the masterpieces "X-Men: First Class" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past". X-Men: Apocalypse was not memorable, funny, dramatic or interesting. The villain is... nah. I am sorry, but this was just a horrible film. The only good thing is Magneto and his family. That was nicely handled. The chemistry between Cyclops, Jean, Storm and all the other characters is actually handled pretty ok. It entertained me. If you like the X-Men, then you can enjoy this. A little.

    They covered up one of their best assets in Oscar Isaak with an ugly and humanless costume. Then they relied on a cardboard story with no real idea of a story. Just world domination vs no world domination.
