To be honest, this is one of my favorite movies in 2016. In fact, the whole series are just amazing. I love the characters of Jean Grey, Storm, Magneto, Mystique and most of all, Wolverine. But this post is only about X-Men: Apocalypse. There are no Wolverine, Colossus, Gambit and many others. This X-Men series only include Professor Xavier, Magneto, Mystique, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Beast and some more. The main bad guy to fight is Apocalypse. He was the very first mutant so called in the story. He has some different magnificent powers like transporting, healing and enhancing other mutants’ powers. Apocalypse gained the powers by moving mind and spirit to other mutants’ body. By that, ruling the powers is absolute.
The story of X-Men: Apocalypse is about the awakening of Apocalypse or En Sabah Nur after thousands of years. As the immortal and the most powerful mutant in the world, Apocalypse wants to create a world of his own. To achieve his purpose, he recruits Magneto, Storm, Psylocke and more powerful mutants. He even enhanced their powers to become much stronger to rely on.
For a 2h 27m, this movie is quite messier and heavier than the previously X-Men: Days of Future Fast. Well, as a common moviegoer, people would think that the movie is fantastic. They could say that by seeing its cinematographic and some action scenes. Personally, I love the fighting scenes too especially the fights on the ship. Gosh, Psylocke is really cool with her laser saber. Just love her action scenes. If only she were a personnel of X-Men.
I have no comment on Apocalypse’s powers. He is super strong and apparently X-Men almost unable to stop him. Thanks to Jean Grey the most, Apocalypse is finished.
I love the beauty Jennifer Lawrence but in this movie X-Men, she makes Mystique grim more unrelentingly than ever. This super power Katniss Everdeen just lack of fighting scenes. I was disappointed by her role as Mystique.
For such messy and heavy movie, the X-Men: Apocalypse has gained more than 543.9 million USD in the Box Office with only budget around 178 million USD. The result showed that X-Men series are always awaited by the fans around the globe.
Personally, I consider this movie is interesting yet frustrating at the same time. I do not know about you guys, but everyone is free to share thoughts.
