Film Review: “X-Men: Apocalypse”

Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner

Directed by: Bryan Singer

So today I’ve just seen the new “X-Men: Apocalypse” and here is my review.

Plot/Synopsis: With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.

I’m a huge fan of the X-Men movies but this one was kind of disappointing to be honest with you. Reasons being is that no. 1 is that it had way too much CGI. I think this film overdone it with the CGI… I felt like I was watching a huge computer game on screen or something. Reason 2 it wasn’t that good is because I thought the writing was a mess and it’s just a typical popcorn film. The movie is a full 2 and a half hours long. The film had too many characters, in my opinion.

I do have a few positives of the film, though. I like seeing Sophie Turner who played Jean Grey. Sophia Turner mostly famous for playing Sansa Stark in the “Game of Thrones” series. She did a great job in the film too. As usual, I think Michael Fassbender makes a great young Magneto.

It’s just a disappointing film and kind of boring. I did like how it explained the friendship of Xavier and Magneto though which is one thing we’ve all been wondering for years. With that being sad, this film wasn’t all that great and nothing special.

I’ll give it a 2 out of 5 stars as in “okay”.
