What’s It About?
The X-Men must come together to stop Apocalypse, a super-mutant trying to take over the world.
Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This movie could have (should have) been so awesome, but it was not. Not at all. The story is overly ambitious, trying to follow many previously established characters and introduce, or re-introduce, several new ones on top of squeezing in the emergence and backstory of the world’s first mutant and his quest for world domination. There is too much going on and, as a result, everything gets short changed, especially new additions Oscar Isaac and Olivia Munn. I understand that blockbuster films can’t be three hours long in today’s marketplace, but this movie needs more time… or a more-focused script.
Final Grade: C-
Thanks for reading!
