#MovieReview: "X-Men: Apocalypse"


It's time to visit those mutants again, but this time in the 1980s, and just in time for the X-Men: Apocalypse.

Our main protagonists are back: James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), and Michael Fassbender (Magneto) -- and they are joined by some new (old) X-Men.

Of course, this time they are facing off against their greatest external threat: Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). Can they stop him from remaking the world in his own image?

More importantly, will we enjoy watching it?




Overall, this was a good movie, with perhaps the best super-villain I've seen on-screen in Apocalypse. He is smart and ruthless!

But, some one of the things/characters just slowed the movie down (*cough* Mystique *cough*), and there just weren't enough awe-inspiring moments.

It should have been better, and deserved to be, but is still RATHER ENTERTAINING TO WATCH.

QBF Rating: 4.0/5

PS: They need to stop trying to make Mystique a thing. Her character isn't central to the X-Men story, and never will be, no matter how much ret-conning they do. Pointless she is.

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
