X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse ticketstubThe heartwarming tale of mutants coming together to save the world... you know, like every other X-Men movie... Honestly, I thought this movie worked quite well. Picking up after the events of First Class and Days of Future Past, it follows the introduction of the super mutant Apocalypse as he recruits his new horsemen and sets off the apocalypse. In the meantime, Xavier's mutant friends and students start getting their shit together and join forces to save the world and rescue Xavier.

I appreciate that the plot was kept fairly simple leaving a little more room for character development. Still, there are a lot of characters, so not everyone gets the full treatment. Overall, I thought it was a solid movie that continues the themes from the first two movies without muddying the core elements. Stay for the scene after the credits.

3/5
