Movie Review: X-Men Apocalypse – No Spoilers

The latest from Fox’s X-Men franchise has hit. How was it? It was ok. This is effectively the concluding chapter of the  semi-reboot of the X-Men series which started during X-Men First Class, and as usual, the third one in the series isn’t quite as good as the rest. That’s not to say that it’s a bad movie. I enjoyed it over all, but for me, Days of Future Past is a little bit better.

A few minor complaints – Apocalypse needed to be BIGGER! The moment he shows up with all Four Horsemen should have been a WTH moment…but instead, I laughed a bit because he looked like he was the shortest. And there were a few too many characters to introduce, so it did suffer a bit from too many things going on.

Things I liked – Nightcrawler was awesome. As was Quicksilver. I won’t say much else because that would be spoiling things. Cyclops worked, but Jean Grey…I’ll say no more. And right near the end, it really felt like classic X-Men. This image from Empire Magazine really summed it up nicely though:

There was also one cameo in the movie which was incredible. It was slightly spoiled in the trailers, but I won’t say much else. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it.

Overall, a good time, enjoyable, but just falls short of the previous entry.
