    X-Men: Apocalypse
    The X-Men are forced to confront an ancient mutant called Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) in this comic-book adventure set in the 1980s. Eager to take over the world and remake it in his own image, Apocalypse recruits mutants to act as his powerful "Four Horsemen" -- among them is the tortured Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who believes humanity might be a lost cause after a personal tragedy. In time, Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his charges must work together to save the planet from this threat. New additions to this X-Men team include the elusive Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), fiery Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and telepathically gifted Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, and Olivia Munn co-star. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      Good, Not Great

      As a life-long X-Men fan, X-Men Apocalypse is the movie I've waited over 25 years for. And while it does some great things with some of the characters, most of the movie is a lost opportunity. Apocalypse himself doesn't look as bad as everyone says (in my opinion) but the problem with the character in this movie is that he doesn't do much. He just postures and pontificates a lot and rehashes his desire to rebuild the world in his image ad nauseam. Apocalypse has the abilities to wipe the floor with the X-Men but he never even tries in this movie. Casting for Jean, Cyclops, Storm and Nightcrawler is pretty much spot-on but they are never really given the chance to shine as the A-Listers they are. And Apocalypse empowering Storm? Give me a break. That's a disservice to the character of Ororo Munroe. Psylocke makes her cinematic debut in this movie but I don't think Singer knew what to do with her. She's not evil in the comics, but in this movie, who could tell? They should have waited to introduce her in an X-Force movie or Deadpool sequel. Dazzler should have filled her spot in this movie. I mean, it's set in the '80's. Archangel looked cool, but they "massacred" his origin story here. (Comics fans know what I mean.) Without a doubt the most frustrating thing about this movie is Mystique. Jennifer Lawrence is a fine actress but she is terrible at portraying Mystique. I don't think she cares about the character or this franchise so she needs to go and not come back. Mystique is NOT a hero. She is a selfish, manipulative killer who will do whatever it takes to accomplish her goals. So unless they take her back to her roots, NO MORE MYSTIQUE IN X-MEN MOVIES! (Exception being Rebecca Romijn of course. She was perfectly cast.) I'm also tired of Magneto. Michael Fassbender is an awesome Magneto and I would definitely watch a solo movie with him but the character needs to be removed from the movies in order to let ACTUAL X-Men have screen time. Quicksilver has a bit too much screen time as well, although his action sequence in this movie is pretty rad. All in all, X-Men Apocalypse is a fun movie but like every other X-Men movie it leaves something to be desired. Let's hope next time they focus on the X-Men as a team, not villains and side characters as they keep doing.

      One of the best X-Men movies to date!!

      I would like to start by saying that critics are WRONG about this movie. Critics are people with opinions, just like the rest of us. What they have to say about any movie should be taken simply for what it is...one person's opinion! With that being said, I also need to say that I'm so fed up with comic book movies being torn apart because they might not be 100% in line with the source material. Yes, these movies are BASED on comic books, but just because they aren't an exact representation of them doesn't make them wrong or bad! Now don't get me wrong, there are some things that really shouldn't be changed, and that is a characters background and/or origins. For example, Storm was never a horseman of Apocalypse! Things like that, I do have to agree, are very frustrating and shouldn't be done!! I LOVED this movie, and so far, it's my favorite in the X-Men franchise. The new cast is outstanding; and while I do feel a bit sad that the original cast's time as Storm, Jean, and Cyclops have come to an end, this cast has breathed new life into the characters! Alexandra Shipp and Sophie Turner both blew me away. They are perfect for their roles! Seeing Phoenix FINALLY done right was one of the most exciting moments (for me) in the entire X-Men franchise! The only reason I gave the movie 4 stars instead of 5 is because I really feel that the story needs to concentrate and revolve around Storm, Jean, Cyclops, and the rest of the younger X-Men team. The focus being on Wolverine, Professor Xavier, and Magneto is VERY overplayed and it's time to give these other characters the screen time and attention they so immensely deserve!!!! Storm is by far one of the most popular and iconic superheroes in the Marvel universe, and yet she has been put in the background in almost every X-Men movie. It is a travesty, and I sincerely hope that Fox realizes just how import characters like Storm and Jean are, and stop making the X-Men movies the Wolverine, Prof X, and Magneto show!!!! I hope with all my heart that Fox finally fixes this is the next X-Men movie...which I'm VERY much looking forward to it being a...ahem...Sinister new addition to the franchise!!!! Haha ;oD

      The film itself is an OK work, with good and very good moments. It should have been so much more. There are character development scenes, unfinished and in lower visual quality, that would have elevated this film so much. They are included as bonus material. They should have been edited into a director's cut of lasting impact and breadth. We need time to buy into Scott and Jean as friends, let alone a future couple. We need time to be sold on this specific group and their team bonds. The kind of time spent across several films in the Marvel Universe, or "Lord of the Rings." These cut scenes would have been a great start. Instead, we get an action / visual showcase lacking the soul of either "First Class" or the sequel. Audio quality? Excellent, probably reference. Video quality? For about 70% of the film, this UHD *leads the medium* with spectacular lighting, color depth, detail, and sharpness. The first 70% of this may well define the potential of UHD: truly stunning, ultra-realistic. But then, things get a tad soft. Sharpness and focus drift slighlty. Detail is less. I would rate the video in this portion 83/100. Recommended, with caveats that the studio may have lost this one in the editing room. And that as great as the visual presentation begins, some momentum is lost by the final scenes.

      Middle of the road X-Men movie

      The X-Men franchise has had 9 movies so far, and while Apocalypse isn't among the worst, it's still not particularly good. It's also looks a bit worse, following on the heels of Days of Future Past and Deadpool (which are arguably the best of the series). Apocalypse (the character) feels pretty wasted in this movie, and he SHOULD be the greatest, scariest villain in the X-Men universe. The stakes never feel as high as they should, and Apocalypse never reaches the caliber of threat that he should be. It's set in the 80s, but you can hardly tell. I guess they just wanted to keep the trend going, from First Class being in the 60s and Days of Future Past being (mostly) in the 70s. But whereas First Class and Days used historical events from those decades as part of the plot, there's no real reason for Apocalypse to be set in the 80s, and it never really feels like it is. The cast is a bit cluttered (a common X-Men movie issue) and a lot of characters get the short shrift, particularly Jubilee, Psylocke, and Archangel. One of the biggest problems in the movie is Jennifer Lawrence (who I normally like a great deal). She was contracted for the franchise before she hit superstar levels of fame and popularity, and once that happened, the X-Men movies started to focus more and more on her character. And while a Mystique-centric X-Men movie could be good, sadly it looks like Jennifer Lawrence could not care any less about being there. She phones this performance in, hard. Overall, unless you feel the need to complete your collection of the series, skip it.

      Goofy End to a Terrific Trilogy

      I am a fan of the X-Men series, both the original Patrick Stewart / Ian McKellen trilogy of films and the prequel/ reboots starring James Macavoy and Michael Fassbender. In my opinion, these are the gold standard of Marvel Comic book movies. So I was a built-in audience for the third film in the reboot series. That "Apocalypse" is not up to the level of accomplishment of "Days of the Future Passed," the previous installment, is both evident but not really evidence against this film. "Apocalypse" is so goofy in its story, so over-the-top in its effects, that it almost plays as a parody of the series without really undermining the codes and conventions that have made these films so memorable. Oscar Isaac comes aboard as one of those timeless villains that only exist in comic books--the ancient entity with mystical powers who is going to cleanse the world of corruption. Marvel specializes in this kind of antagonist, and I must admit that I am a sucker for such swill. What else would explain my affinity for "Blade Trinity"? The plot pits those mutants who are seduced by this End of Days deity and those that still harbor hope for mankind. Anyway, it's all pretty silly, but the special effects are first rate, the actors are committed, and all the requisite bases are touched in bringing this particular X-Men trilogy to a close. There's even a teaser in the credits setting up the next X-Men spin-off featuring Wolverine. What more could an X-Men fan ask for?

      it’s a lot of fun, and new cast are likeable and take well to their iconic roles. But if you’re expecting a more direct continuation of First Class and Days of Future Past, like I was, you might be a touch disappointed. A decade has passed since we last saw Xavier, Magneto, and the rest. For some little has changed in that time. Xavier and Beast are taking in and teaching more gifted kids who can't find a place within society. Meanwhile, Magneto has begun a new life under an assumed identity. The Directors invested considerable time in establishing and elaborating a few key relationships. At the center of it all, of course, was the problematic friendship of Professor X and Magneto, but the pair barely share a scene together here. It’s a shame as both actors obviously still have plenty to offer in the roles. McAvoy has matured wonderfully into an inspirational teacher. There’s a great scene in which dozens of students, including Jubilee, hang on every word he says, while Fassbender enjoys one incredible scene early on which exposes the character’s, but it’s not long before he’s recruited by Apocalypse and transformed into little more than hired muscle. Taken as the next chapter in the series, Apocalypse is an undeniably fun and entertaining adventure and does a pretty good job of keeping everyone sitting on the edge of their seats.

      OK. When the first 2 X-Men movies came out at the turn of the millennium, I was amazed. Even though I HATED the premise of the first movie (what the main enemy's evil plot was...don't want to spoil anything for anyone who might not have seen it), seeing the comic book characters I'd grown to love come to life was just awesome! Since then, though, every X-Men movie has sadly been a major disappointment. Every one of them. ALL! The ONLY redeeming grace these movies have AT ALL in my opinion have been to see characters I hadn't seen in the other movies yet as 'real life' characters. it seems Marvel and Disney can't make up their minds how any of the characters are supposed to exist when or how. Frustrating. Quit it. Quit changing the origin of every single character in every movie. ARGH! Having said that, the movie on Blu-Ray is done really well. It's a great transfer right up until the end where the good guys face off against the bad guys in a desert-like area. That's the only spot I felt didn't look right, and it took me out of the movie to some extent. If you like the X-Men movies, you'll enjoy the adventure. You'll just have to accept this as a completely different concept from any other previous X-Men movie (in the same way that all the previous movies have been different concepts from the others, with the exception of the first two...).

      Fun but overall "meh" film, FANTASTIC 3D

      I'm a fan of (almost) all of the current crop of superhero films. The X-Men series in particular is an odd one. It's gone on arguably too long with intertwined and muddled continuity. While the past couple of films seemed to get things back on track, this one was a bit of a disappointment. The last two in the series, First Class and Days of Future Past, moved the overall story along nicely, cleaned up some of that messy continuity and provided strong standalone stories in the process. What we have here is something that seems to try more to introduce young versions of characters we know who will appear in future films than to actually tell a quality story. The premise is basic and all interesting characters are criminally underused. If this is Singer's final X-Men attempt, OK by me. What we do have is some truly gorgeous, though mindless, fun. While I was tempted to pick up the 4K, as it should be stunning, I went with 3D as this is one of the few films that has recently been shot natively in the format. The visuals are exceptional. Lot of depth, images popping and flame effects just kind of floating in front of you. If you don't care about using your brain and just want to escape and see something cool, this is it. Would make a wonderful demo disc to show off your 3D tv to friends.
