“X-Men: Apocalypse” the entire world is at war [review]
Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.
Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.
As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” is a confused, bloated mess of a film. There are several films crammed into one, all battling for the spotlight, and none of them actually work; there is really no central storyline to the film. The first hour is almost entirely in service of setting up new players and establishing what the veterans are up to, before the show started.
The show is about how the mutant supergroup unites and divides in response to the villain Apocalypse, after all it is a very nice movie and you will definitely enjoy it.
“X-Men: Apocalypse,” a 20th Century Fox release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sequences of violence, action and destruction, brief strong language and some suggestive images.”
