What is it?

The 2016 American superhero movie X-Men: Apocalypse.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god.

Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.

Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign.

As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I liked the beginning of the movie when it took place in ancient Egypt and Quicksilver’s action scene, and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

I did not like this movie as much as the previous movie and I felt that the main villain was weak, I liked it a bit better than most critics it seems, but I did not like it as much as some critics like Chris Stuckmann.

The end,
