A mixed bag of treats - Quicksilver is still the coolest X-Men and the Wolvie bit was fun. Villain not so much. 7/10

Another good X-Men movie. As Koroy said it's not as good as Days of Future Past or First Class, but I didn't expect it to be given how good those ones were.

Terribly disappointing, especially considering Days of Future Past is my 2nd favorite superhero movie.

As someone who likes First Class and loves Days Of Future Past, I really hate this movie. It's meandering, mindless and ridiculous. The first half is fine but suffers mostly from poor pacing and adding too many unnecessary characters but the second half is where everything falls apart. Okay, X-Men films in the past always focus on a lowkey skirmish for their climaxes where only the consequences involved the end of the world. X2 had them going to rescue Charles but the larger consequence was his mind was used to kill all mutants. The focus of the First Class climax was mostly on the water around or on the beach in Cuba but the larger consequence could've began World War 3. Here, every scrap of metal in the world is seen being crushed as well as a city-large battle, mind controlling and plenty of destruction. It doesn't help that the poor development and the weak villain makes it hard to connect with anything. Magneto was generally threatening in the trilogy and I was interested in his arc. Apocalypse is as boring as a villain can get. First mutant ever who has God-like powers and is practically unstoppable by all.

Bottomline, I hate this movie. The writers should be ashamed. And by that, I mean not ashamed at all because this is clearly a producers movie. Forcing in younger versions of original characters purely for set-up for future installments and having Wolverine in for a pointless cameo. You may think you're watching "X-Men Apocalypse", but what I see is "stay tuned for "Dark Phoenix"".

How does a director go from The Usual Suspects to... this? Apocalypse sucks

I loved the animated series and will always think of Apocalypse along those lines. I have no idea wtf they were thinking when they made this turd, but it should be deleted.

It’s hard to ignore how the film turns a blind eye to several glaring plot problems. I mean am I silly to think they might address the 10 million people killed when a city is leveled?
