[6.25/10] X-Men: Apocalypse [3D] (2016)

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

Quick Review: It kicks off well with an impressive first act, set in ancient Egypt, but then very quickly loses its steam, jumping from one location to another to the point of becoming too incoherent. The mayhem goes even bigger in the second half, where the film starts to feel really overcrowded and loaded with CGI-y action that is not that startling anyway, paying too much attention to its indolent villain. J Law aside, the cast do a great job, and Quicksilver's rescue set piece is absolutely phenomenal!

Bummer! Was hoping for another big hit.

Me too, but it turned out to be average at best, apart from that awesome Quicksilver scene.

Zach Murphy said...

Good review.

This film seemed to be a tale of two halves, and unfortunately both halves are less-than-stellar.

Thanks, Zach.

I couldn't agree more. While far from terrible, this installment felt very half-baked.
