"You can't play a symphony with a single note. With Apocalypse, Singer never gets around to varying his single, gloomy, dreary tune." - The Verge.

"It repeats a lot of what has come before, but solid thrills make it more fun than old, for now." - Coming Soon.

"Disappointingly [succumbs] to an exhausting case of been-there-done-that-it-is." - Variety.

"The idea of an apocalypse means every dial has to be turned up to 11 and this film certainly provides bangs for your buck, although there is less space for the surreal strangeness of the X-Men to breathe." - Guardian.

"Despite the undeniable presence of a huge amount of action, X-Men: Apocalypse is decidedly a case of more is less." - The Hollywood Reporter.

"Apocalypse isn't quite a dog. But it is a movie with way too much of everything except the things that should matter the most -- novelty, creativity, and fun." - Entertainment Weekly.

"If nothing else, this spectacularly goofy and sporadically entertaining movie isn't afraid to reimagine human history." - Indiewire.

"Marks a shocking letdown from Singer's earlier contributions; what once soared now slogs." - The Wrap.

"Easily the worst "team" X-MEN movie ever made. Makes X-MEN: THE LAST STAND look like X-MEN: FIRST CLASS." - Forbes.

"Woe is to be a mutant." - Uproxx.

"X-Men Apocalypse is a mind-bending trip of a movie, one likely both to exhilarate spectators and to leave many either with severe feelings of sensory overload or scratching their heads." - Independent UK.

"X-Men: Apocalypse doesn't quite reach the lofty heights of the genre's best, but is a solidly entertaining film. Evan Peters steals the show again as Quicksilver." - Movieweb.

Synopsis

“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.”
