Movie review : X-men Apocalypse

Headlines Movie review : X-men Apocalypse


Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, the immortal Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) becomes the first and most powerful mutant. Awakening after thousands of years, he recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) lead a team of young X-Men to stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind


  • The acting was excellent , the stand out performances came from Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) and James McAvoy (Charles Xavier)
  • It had a huge ,star studded cast , but all the characters was used expertly ,nothing felt forced .
  • Filled with eye-popping special effects and exquisite action scenes .


  • The story-line was abit predictable .


Moira MacTaggert: Where ever this being was, he would always have four followers who he would imbue with power.
Alex Summers / Havok: Like the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He got that one from the Bible.
Moira MacTaggert: Or the Bible got it from him.
Erik Lensherr/Magneto: Doesn’t it ever wake you up in the middle night, the feeling that someday they’ll come for you and your children.
Charles Xavier: I feel a great swirl of pity for the poor soul that comes to my school looking for trouble.
Apocalypse: You are all my children, and you’re lost because you follow blind leaders. No more false gods. I’m here now.


X-men: Apocalypse was a fantastic movie , but when compared to the previous movies in the X-men trilogy , ‘First class’ and ‘Days of future past’ , it falls flat . It lacks the emotional connection and character depth of the last 2 movies . Erik Lensherr/Magneto ,who was a pivotal character in the previous films was not fully utilized and was basically relegated to the role of a henchman.

X-men: Apocalypse was not ,however, full of negatives . It did have a fresh original story-line and the addition of characters such as Jean Grey and Scott Summers/Cyclops will excite fans of the series . The seemingly unstoppable villain Apocalypse , who sees himself as a god , was portrayed expertly . The action sequences and visual effects were splendid .

This is not the best X-men movie but it is definitely worth watching .
