Not Jubilee, she annoys me.

I was curious what time period this was going to be set in, shame no more gandalf and Picard.

Jubilee is and was the worst. Sansa as Jean Grey could be interesting though.

Also, hurray for Nightcrawler!

Sophie Turner for Jean? Huh. Olivia Munn, isn't she from G4? As long as they don't do Psylocke like X-Men 3.

Click for High-Res Pictures

As I said, Apocalypse just looks weird. Think I would've preferred a CG-form like Thanos that looks more like the comic version. This one s basically Ivan Ooze.

My main thoughts were the trailer was really fucking boring. I think I stopped caring about X-men after days of future past trailer made it seem like there was going to be a lot more badass sections then there actually was.

This will be amazing. We are blessed with Bryan Singer. A captivating movie with real stakes instead of the milquetoast kiddie fare that Marvel Studios shells out for maximum profit.

I agree. Shallow and pedantic.

The Ivan Ooze slander was just created to hide the fact that Ultron was a goddamn Team Rocket villain.

I thought Ivan Ooze was great in his Green Lantern cameo.

Ivan Ooze, in any iteration, is still a more credible threat than that metal goofball.

I'll admit when I see Bryan Singer's name part of me hopes this is going to be amazing, but I haven't really enjoyed the lasst few super hero films came out. That said First Class was still absolutely amazing so hopefully it can deliver. I'm not going to let myself get hyped for this movie as I don't want to be disappointed again.

I'm just glad they confirmed it since the fucktards at Marvel retconned the parentage in the comics (they also retconned Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being mutants).

They are the High Evolutionary's genetically "enhanced" experiments who were "hidden" as mutants.

I swear the speed they make quicksilver run in the the movies i.e. days of future past is ridiculous. Kinda bugs me unless something changed recently he was never that fast.

This was a film about nothing. I came out of it the same way I come out of some MCU movies. With a sense of emptiness. And the second half was definitely an MCU movie: large action set pieces, jokes, tons and tons of fanservice. It explains why a lot of reviewers who are comic book fans said it was amazing and the best X-Men movie yet. But for me, as a Singer fan, it largely came up short.

HOWEVER, it wasn't franchise-destroying. On the contrary. The ending is promising and the Xavier/Magneto/Mystique trifecta is given its definitive solution. I don't think anyone was ever expecting J-Law to be back, but Fassneto is also giving a potential goodbye scene.

The good:

Cyclops, Jean and Nightcrawler are spot on. Cyclops is a natural leader, but they made him a lot more likable than the clenched anus asshole he is known for.. Jean is a powerhouse. Turner's acting at the beginning is very rocky, because she's either forcing out the American or just talking English. But by the end of the movie it feels natural, just in time for her standout scene. Nightcrawler is an utter delight. He was perfect. They cut out the mall scene, which was a really stupid decision (because it allows a sense of camaraderie to be formed), but these three still have tons of screentime and are very involved with the final battle. It's not like the original movies where they occasionally show up.

"Weapon X" was very well done. But the journey to it felt like a giant detour.

Quicksilver was a scenestealer again. I don't think they should've repeated the kitchen scene, but he was a delight in all his other scenes as well.

There's tons and tons of fanservice to digest, though a lot of it has been in promotional material.

The bad:

Without a firm anchor, the movie tries to give spotlight to a ton of characters and it shows. Instead of at least having a few characters having a well-rounded arc, instead a whole bunch of characters have screentime and none of them ultimately serve a purpose.

Mystique is mostly there to be there. She has screentime, sure, but unlike DoFP she is not the lynchpin of the movie. Actually, that also counts as a positive I guess. This is NOT Mystique and the X-Men like the first movies were Wolverine and the X-Men.

Storm and Psylocke do virtually nothing. Psylocke has a lot of cool action shots, but they were all in the teasers, trailers and featurretes.

Magneto gets an original story at the start of the movie, it goes exactly as you expect it and then he turns into a mostly silent mook for the rest of the movie. What's the point? He was a villain at the end of the last movie! I liked his scene in Auschwitz though, since it perfectly sums up his character, both in comics and in movies.

Apocalypse is mostly just a pontificating one-note villain. Again, felt like I was watching an MCU movie. Though if you're a fan of comics/TAS Pooky, I don't see why you'd have a problem with movie Pooky.

The turning point of the movie, and this has been said in reviews as well, is the Quicksilver scene. Before it, there's a lot of effort and a lot of moving parts. After it is the point where the tension-deflating jokes start hammering home and it turns into a generic action fest with tons of fanservice. I mean, the destruction of the mansion should be a huge dramatic moment. Instead, it's a hoot.

The movie is extremely shallow. It even forewent the hated and feared angle in this one. Not a single mention of it. The closest it came to this was Mystique saying that mutant tolerance only existed on a surface level and that mutants were still victims of hate crimes everywhere. Every X-Men movie opens with Xavier monologuing about themes that get explored throughout the movie. In this one, he monologues that powerful people can be very powerful. Got it!

The friend I went with who is a comic book movie noob said it had too many jokes and too much action. Take that as you will.

In short, the moie was utterly mediocre. But still far superior to BvS.

I always wanted to see a Seinfeld-esque X-Men film.
