X-Men: Apocalypse 2016


xmenapocalypseimax-1Trying to top the last big success with X-Men: Days of Future Past seemed a little too hard for Bryan Singer. After giving us three very good X-Men movies with X-Men (2000), X2 (2003) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), this is probably the lesser of his movies, but by all means not a bad movie per se. Now the new X-Men team has to stop Apocalypse who is trying to destroy the world and build a better one from the ashes of the old with his four followers. The movie takes a bit time to really start and the stakes does not really feel that high. But when the action starts to happen it’s quite enjoyable. Good performances by the cast, especially Michael Fassbender as Magneto, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. This movie is not as good as the previous ones, but I still look forward to the continue of the X-Men franchise.

Score: 7/10
